Sherilyn Caine has left Chicago behind to marry Andrew Drummond IV, an Atlanta native with a family name that tops all the social registers. Landing the job as The Tanglewood’s wedding planner is a piece of cake for someone with a Type A personality; she’s the perfect fit for a wedding destination hotel known for its attention to even the tiniest details.
But when everything else is going along ...more
When I first read the title, I thought it was going to be about a wedding planner unlucky in love, when it was really about a wedding planner and her fiancée that keep getting stalled on the way to the altar. Missing wedding dresses, a motion sickness-prone dog and aller ...more
Every time I finish a book like this one, I ask myself why I don't read more of them. Though considered part of the christian fiction genre, this book has all the great characteristics of a PG rated chick lit novel. It is delightful and romantic with that certain fun-loving quality, humorous tone typical of chick lit type books.
Sherilyn Caine and Emma Rae Travis have been friends since their college days. With virtually no family of her own, Sherilyn quickly gets ...more
I read and enjoyed Sandra D. Bricker's other book, Always the Baker, Never the Bride last year, and I honestly had no idea that this was a part of a series. So when I saw the galley for this book on Netgalley, I was pleasantly surprised. The first book wasn't a favorite, but I liked it enough for me to get the sequel and read it in between pages of a ghost story I was also currently reading.

Not as predictable as I expected: the characters' journeys had some very nice twists and turns and, although the ending is pretty much same old, same old, it was still cute and romantic. There are some pretty ridiculous things (Sherilyn possibly allergic to her fiance... seriously?), but it is well written. The author does a great job of being funny without overdoing it, which I think is a great skill.
As a Christian novel, with Christian main characters, it was strange how t ...more
Most romance novels begin when the girl meets the guy. This one starts with the Sherilyn and Andy already engaged. This change of set-up is refreshing and creates a story of getting to know the in-laws, ...more

I do not know why I waited so long to read these books. They have been in my Kindle for a bit now. Bricker makes you want to jump in her books with two feet and stay until finished. The books take place in Atlanta and every time the author mentions a restaurant I have to look it up. We may have to have an Atlanta Eats day visiting some of these spots.
I loved seeing old characters as well as the new ones. Oh, and the recipes sound amazing. I will have to t ...more

Let's take it as read (sorry, sorry again) that it had many of the same sterling qualities as the first book in the series. It's light-hearted, funny, and has a lot of luscious food descriptions.

Working in the wedding industry, I’m just a little bit in love with all things wedding and that includes books about weddings. When I heard about the novel Always The Wedding Planner Never The Bride by Sandra D Bricker I just knew that I had to read it. After all what could be better than chick lit with weddings and wedding planning? Not much in my eyes, which is why I was so excited to get started.

In Always the Baker, Never the Bride we are introduced to Emma Rae Travis, the diabetic baker. And in Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride we are introduced to Sherilyn Caine, Emma Rae's best friend from college. While Emma couldn't hardly ever eat anything with sugar, Sherilyn eats sugar at almost every possible moment. A habit that Emma told her would catch up with her after college when life slowed down. Which it eventually does and Sherilyn is now very self-conscious about (along w ...more
I kept on reading this book on and off for over two months. I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Always the Baker, Never the Bride, and was happy to see many of the main characters return, but I had difficulty connecting with the storyline at times.
The heroine of the story, Sherilyn, is completely loveable and relatable and Andy was a charming male lead. However, I did feel a disconnect with Sherilyn and Andy as a couple. W ...more
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I am under no obligation to write a positive review, just an honest one.
Sherliyn Caine and her fiancé have just moved back to Atlanta from Chicago in preparation for their wedding, and their new jobs. Her fiancé, Andrew Drummond IV, is the perfect man. So sweet, caring, respectful and everything she just ever wanted.
Sherliyn finds an amazing job working w ...more

This is a rather sweet story. As Sherilyn and Andrew do not get to know each others for long before they are engaged, they knew they are right for each other, but they are unsure if the other party are ready to settle down. Moreover they are moving to another town, starting the new life there. In this story, we see how they work out those i ...more
