More from Jennifer
Have you ever been to a party and had so much fun you hated to leave? That’s how I felt when I finished up The Weather Girls. I fell in love with the characters and the memory lane saunter through my hometown of Kokomo, Indiana.
Then, chatting with a good writing friend, I realized I could have a spin-off series where Ferguson House, the business, and of course the cardinal and the sycamore tree all play a part.
The friends from the original series could drop by the stories, but these would be stand-alones. I also wanted to make these stories fun as well as heartwarming.
Then I had the question–where to get the story inspirations?
The same place I got it for Sunny, Stormy, and Windy—the oldies station.
That’s when I Googled song titles from the 60s that had girls’ names in them. When “Judy in Disguise” popped up, I knew it had to be the first of the new Weather Girls Wedding Shoppe and Venue series. The story ideas came fast and furious.
I am so excited about this new series, and I hope you will be too as familiar song titles get new plot points. Come join me at the Weather Girls Wedding Shoppe and Venue.
This is a fun story to read which includes laughs, adventure and a faith thread throughout the story. I loved having some much loved characters from another book make an appearance in the story. Who could forget The Weather Girls? They play a part in this story that I thought was so cleverly written. The time period brought back so many memories. I liked the different songs mentioned and laughed at the type of phone I grew up with. Do you remember the rotary dial or push button phones?
Judy is a good character but I sure hope she gets a little more confident in her self. I couldn’t believe what her boss wanted her to do and was shocked she went along with it. Nothing good comes from being deceitful and Judy is in for a bumpy ride.
Geoff falls into the trap as well when his uncle comes up with a scheme to spy on his competitor. Now Geoff and Judy must “fake” an engagement to infiltrate and take down their biggest competition. Geoff is not happy with the arrangement and is determined to stop being afraid to say no to his uncle.
One thing I really liked about Geoff is his faith. He tells Judy that God does love her even though Judy seems to think that “ God has more important things to think about than her.” I know I can relate to that. I sometimes wonder where God is when I go through trials. We are afraid to trust Him and that stops us from receiving our breakthrough.
This has been such a wonderful story about two people who have dreams they think will never happen. As they learn to open up to each other they begin to rely on God to show them the right thing to do and in the end find happiness and a new beginning.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit. The review is my own opinion.
