Overview

Always the Designer, Never the Bride by Sandra D. Bricker

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!

"Sandra D. Bricker is the Babe Ruth of romantic comedy with one home run after another! Third in the hilarious series, I didn't want Always the Designer, Never the Bride to end. I'm anxiously waiting for the next book in this series. Novel Rocket and I give Always the Designer, Never the Bride our highest recommendation. It's a 5-star read!" - Ane Mulligan, Sr. Editor Novel Rocket

"Sandie Bricker's latest romance is as beautifully woven as a haute couture gown. Always the Designer, Never the Bride offers readers a fun and engaging storyline, along with some sparkling embellishments, including an array of bridal design tidbits, guaranteed to have you reaching for your needle and thread. Highly recommended!" - Janice Thompson, author of the Weddings by Bella series

"Always the Designer Never the Bride shows yet another angle of the journey from 'I think I love you' to 'I do' and all the side adventures that keep her readers begging, 'Tell me another story!'" Cynthia Ruchti, radio personality and novelist, author of the Carol Award finalist They Almost Always Come Home

"Sandra Bricker has done it again! Like every book in this series, Always the Designer, Never the Bridemade me laugh, made me sigh, made me root for the heroine, and made me cry. When I reached the last page, I didn't know whether to whimper because I had to leave Audrey and J.R. behind...orexhalethat sigh of satisfaction bornof reading a truly wonderful story.No way I'm loaning this one out, because <gasp> what if it isn't returned!" -Loree Lough, best-selling author of more than 80 award-winning books, including reader favorite From Ashes to Honor

Love this series. Christian values without being pushy about it. Takes place in Roswell, GA, where I lived for 7 years.

Great third book in the series, and hopefully not the last! The Tanglewood characters endure more problems, solutions, and falling in love in this book. The characters keep getting better, and the series is wonderful!

Sandra D. Bricker is the Babe Ruth of romantic comedy with one home run after another! Third in the hilarious series, I didn't want Always the Designer, Never the Bride to end. Bricker makes her characters your best friends and you want to keep hanging out with them. She doesn't take her readers down totally predictable paths in the story, and Always the Designer follows that tradition. Up to the last page, I wasn't sure what she would do with Audrey and J.R. I'm anxiously waiting for the next book in this series. Novel Rocket and I give Always the Designer, Never the Bride our highest recommendation. It's a 5-star read!

This series is really fun.  The first book introduced us to the Tanglewood Inn.  The second book broadened the cast of characters.  Now the third book brings the main character in to this world and we are able to see these characters that we love all interact.  I liked getting to know the new characters and getting to know the older characters better.   The story is good, the romance sweet, the relationships of characters, especially friendships, is great.  I love the characters and their relationships with each other, whether friends, business associates, or romantically involved.  Sandra D. Bricker has created a place in Atlanta that I want to go, to meet all these people. Warnings: None I would let my 15 year old read this story, but it is for adults and I don't think she would appreciate the story or the characters.

I liked this book better than the Wedding Planner. It seemed to move along better. I think there is one more and I would read it.

A light funny read. I want to check the ones out that are before this book. Though it is easy to read even if you havent read the previous ones in this series. Looking forward to the next one!

This book was actually a little boring and fairly predictable. And I felt like there was about one couple too many which lead to some confusion, probably since the supporting characters weren't memorable to begin with. Just "okay" in my opinion.

There is something about the &ldquo;Emma Rae&rdquo; collection of fiction novels that makes me smile, giggle and upon the close of that last page, give just a tiny sigh delight and comfort&hellip;like enjoying a yummy plate of your favorite desert. Decadent, with just the right amount of fluff and sweet. Oh there isn&rsquo;t much to worry about, but having an old fashioned good time with this latest installment in the Emma Rae collection. Audrey is such a loveable, quirky character and one that you just can&rsquo;t help but cheer for. A totally loveable ensemble of characters, including a little girl in pink cowgirl books put a smile on my face and joy in the moment spent reading their story. I would definitely advise the reader to pick up the previous two novels in this collection. Just as much a hoot (though the first remains my fav), you will be better able to track the large ensemble cast. There were times I thought the cast a bit too large, but as the book continued, I separated them better. More than one yummy kiss, some tasty entrees, gorgeous wedding gowns and just a quirky, light read, it&rsquo;s a chick lit/romantic comedy I&rsquo;d definitely point readers toward. This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through CFBA for my copy to review.

A clean romantic comedy that is full of fun. The characters are quirky with individual personalities. The two main love interests seem to be too different to go together but in the end are very good for each other. I had a bit of difficulty finishing this one however because it seemed to be too much like the first two in the series and did not add enough to hold my interest. There were too many characters with stories that seemed to clog the main plot.
