Blog Tour: Always the Designer, Never The Bride (Review)

Sandra Bricker calls her fiction "LOL" or Laugh Out Loud Romantic Comedy for the Inspirational Market. I believe with the third installment of the "Always the... Never The Bride" series, Bricker has struck laugh out loud literary gold.

The novel, Always The Designer, Never The Bride, joins the others in the series - set at the The Tanglewood Inn, a wedding destination hotel in historic Roswell, Georgia. The novel continues the humorous adventures of Emma Rae and the crew (as previously published in Always the Baker, Never The Bride and Always the Wedding Planner, Never The Bride.

This time, the novel follows Audrey Regan - a wedding dress designer - who finds herself at the Tanglewood Inn, designing a dress for her best friend, Carly.

The laughs ensue as Audrey tries NOT to fall for Carly's soon-to-be brother-in-law, J.R. Hunt - the most unlikely candidate for a prince charming.

Always the Designer is a light, "make you laugh" book. You'll find yourself cheering for Carly, Audrey, Fee and the entire cast of characters at the Inn. You'll even love the cameo made by Emma's eccentric aunt.

In all, this novel is a solid four on the laugh scale. It's a great third book (four book series), but you can also read it as a stand alone novel. I'm looking forward to the last book:Always the Baker, FINALLY the Bride!

More About The Book
*From The Publisher
It’s taken Audrey Regan years to establish herself as a wedding dress designer, and to date she’s been roped into creating dresses for nine of her girlfriends. Request #10 follows her vow to “Just say no!” and comes from her very best friend. She can hardly turn Carly down!

Audrey arrives in Atlanta early to perform all of her maid-of-honor duties along with final fittings for a one-of-a-kind dress. But Carly’s wedding is nothing short of an event, complete with Prince Charming, and the festivities make Audrey question whether there’s a prince of her own anywhere in her future.

Enter the groom’s brother and best man. Shaggy-haired, tattooed bad boy J.R. Hunt couldn’t be any more different from Prince Charming if he rode in on a Harley Davidson. Oh, wait. He actually did ride in on a Harley!
