Overview

In the latest from the author of Always the Bridesmaid, Cate and Ethan are happily married at last-but it looks like the honeymoon is over.

Cate Padgett is no longer a permanent bridesmaid. Having found a love of her own with Ethan, she's enjoying newlywed bliss. Life is so much calmer now that the wedding mayhem has subsided. Just one problem: as the last of their friends to marry, Cate and Ethan are now the only ones who don't have a kid, aren't expecting a kid, and aren't even trying. There's not even a bump on the horizon. They were just cozying up to being a twosome, and now there's pressure to make it three. Those carefree bridesmaid days are starting to look good.

    After reading "Always a Bridesmaid" I have become hook

    After reading "Always a Bridesmaid" I have become hooked on Whitney Lyles books. I have read all the ones in this series and have loved every minute of them! "First comes Love" is another great addition to the Cate Padget chronicles. In this one, she goes through a pregnancy and all of its trials and tribulations. Readers will find themselves laughing out loud with Cate and the antics that follow. I highly recommend this book and all others by the author! A++

    blah!!

    Made the mistake of purchasing this book, based on back cover description. Very poorly written, it seems she changed the story line after the first chapter. Not proofread? Had to force myself to finish.

    Hard to put down!

    Once I started reading this book, I didn't put it down. It wasn't the most intellectual, or the most moving but there was something about it that kept me wanting more. It may have been the writing, or the sweet story. Regardless, it was a good read.

    Slow starting but full swing afterwards

    This book made me laugh out loud but not until the latter part of the book. It was a slow 5 first chapters. I honestly skipped chapter 4 (to me it was alot of descriptions and it felt like a filler chapter). Once Chapter 5 came it was smooth sailing and I finished this book within 2 days. Not a bad read but one that you'll probably skim through til the story line gets going. Although it is a fiction, one can relate to the characters in the story and it touches on a little bit of everything from infertility, to marriage and having a baby, to having a baby and changing personalities, in-laws, etc.

    Married five months, Cate and Ethan Blakely begin to discuss having children as everyone they know especially family asks when they plan to have kids. Neither has thought that far ahead, but each has questions and doubts especially as Ethan has just started a relatively new catering business. Still the pressure increases on them to produce the next generation Blakely as friends begin to have children. While visiting his family in Scottsdale, Arizona, Cate¿s period is late leading her to wonder whether she conceived even as relatives encourage them to bring forth the next generation. For now she and Ethan ponder to procreate or not to procreate that is the question as the couple investigates the nuclear impact on their lifestyle of raising children. ---- This sequel to HERE COMES THE BRIDE is a fun and amusing tale that focuses on the lead couple as they look around to see their friends having children and in turn pressure exponentially mounts for them to do likewise. Cate makes the tale as she muses back to her bridesmaid days as a Padgett envying her marrying pals and to those warm passionate times when she and Ethan became a couple. Whereas friends and family insist they no longer should remain a DINK (double income no kids), both have doubts that the time is right the hesitation to push a baby carriage seems genuine and turns Whitney Lyles¿ tale into a deep character study. --- Harriet Klausner
