Four unique stores in one, Not Always a Bridesmaid is a contemporary mainstream collection of modern-day romance set mostly in the Pacific Northwest. Each story uses characters from the others to showcase true friendship and love beyond initial love-at-first-sight relationships. Skye moved to be closer to her estranged father, and although an accountant by trade, would like to eventually trade that job out as an event planner. To earn points for her resume, she agrees to help engaged girls at her new workplace, not knowing she’s about to embark on a journey with three of the worst bridezillas ever. Thank goodness the cute limo driver, Chasen, has her back…and more. The second story follows a wedding planner, Bridgette, who falls for a shady character. Everyone suspects him; even she has second and third doubts, but heartbreak and hilarity ensue when each of the couple’s friends get involved. When Kara gets married at the same wedding venue used in the first two stories, her brother Darrin’s return for the wedding sends Kara’s friend Jess into palpitations. The crush of her teen years finally recognizes that she’s grown up. Better yet, he’s planning to come back and set up shop. Besides that, he’s got a wicked sense of humor and evil way to cool things down. In the final story, it’s Bridgette’s assistant Penelope’s turn for romance. Things sizzle out of control…and get even hotter when Ferguson’s former scheming lover returns for more devilment. Ferguson, a PI, shows his stuff when he proves how deeply he cares for and knows the true love of his life. Four bite-size stories for summer getaway reading, Not Always a Bridesmaid will charm the contemporary romance reader. Each story is told through multiple viewpoints and include juicy details of wedding venues, dresses, food, romance galore, and way too-good-to-be-true heroes.

The only highlight for all of her work is meeting Chasen, a handsome and hardworking guy growing a successful limousine service, one long hour at a time.

You guessed it, trouble in Paradise, or maybe it never could be Paradise. Good Ole Steven has a plan, to send in a buddy to pose as a groom setting up what would become Bridgette’s “dream wedding.” One thing Mason hadn’t planned on was falling for Bridgette. Why should Steven get the girl? Does the girl even want Steven when Mason is right there, being exactly what she never knew she wanted? Have fun with this one, forget the deceit, forget Steven, he just may get his…There is no high-stress angst, just two people finding someone special to make their lives complete. There is something magical about the quirky mistletoe headband four friends have shared. Two have found their special someone and Jess is the next one up to keep the enchantment going. Will wearing the headband make sparks fly for Jess and her childhood crush, Darrin? Will Darrin see more than the pesky little kid he used to torment? RED, WHITE, AND BRIDESMAID by Jennifer Conner is that magical tale that will melt the hearts of romantics everywhere, because who doesn’t love a sweet romance come true?

Will the wedding planner finally get her day to say I do? Simple and sigh-worthy, this quick read from Sharon Kleve is the perfect ray of loveshine to make readers smile.
