{Book Review} "Every Girl Gets Confused" by Janice Thompson

Rating: 3/5

Every Girl Gets Confused is a lighthearted, humorous, romantic story filled with eccentric characters. Katie Fisher left her small town life in Fairfield, Texas to move to Dallas and work at a bridal shop. She works with her pro basketball player boyfriend, Brady James, and a whole slew of fun-loving coworkers. The story details the antics that take place at the bridal shop and with the Fisher family back in Fairfield.

Katie thinks she has finally settled into living in Dallas when her mom starts to pressure her to move home, her boyfriend's knee surgery pushes him into a slight depression, and her ex-boyfriend seems to be interested in at least being friends again. Now, Katie is totally confused and unsure of just about everything in her life.

Every Girls Gets Confused is a fun read, but it lacks a strong plot. There are far too many characters for any of them to be fully developed. Because there are so many secondary characters, there are a lot of half-developed subplots that do not go deep, and reveal very little about the main plot. There are more relationships in the story than readers can easily keep up with, and each relationship is minimally developed, with only passive mentions throughout the story. Instead of focusing on the main characters' relationships, Thompson constantly gets off-track by delving into messy subplots. Overall, the story is funny and lighthearted, but the plot is shallow and the characters lack depth.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.
