I've just finished reading the galley for Sandra D. Bricker's newest book entitled Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride. What a fun read on a long drive home!
I was introduced to Sandra Bricker's writing through her previous title, Always the Baker, Never the Bride. This book will make you hungry as you read it. A diabetic pastry chef creates award-winning desserts, but is unable to eat them herself. She is hired as the new pastry chef for a hotel that is becoming the newest destination wedding spot; however, life is never simple. There are many funny twists and turns, and lots of hilarious characters along the way before the happy ending.
When I saw that there would be a sequel, I was eager to read it and was not disappointed. When we meet the main character in Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride, she is already engaged to be married, but the wedding planner extraordinaire's path to her own wedding is anything but smooth. Lost wedding dresses (yes, I said dresses, plural), old flames, allergic reactions, fierce mother-in-law-to-be, a destructive, homeless dog and a crazy actor are just a few of the problems that befall our heroine. Will love survive the seemingly endless onslaught? Is her fiance the right man for her? You'll have to read it yourself to find out!
The publisher graciously allowed me access to the galley for Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride, and I am very grateful. It is a well-written, funny yet tender story. I fell in love with the characters and wasn't ready to leave them when the book ended. Hopefully, she'll revisit these characters in a future story. Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride will be released in October by Abingdon Press. If you haven't already tried any of Sandra D. Bricker's books, it's time to give them a read.
