About the Author
Pamela Burford comes from a funny family. You may take that any way you want. She was raised in a household that valued laughter above all, so of course the first thing she looked for in a husband was a sense of humor. Is it any wonder their grown kids are into stand-up comedy and improv?
It should come as no surprise that everything Pamela writes is infused with her own quirky brand of humor, from her feel-good contemporary romance and romantic suspense novels to her popular Jane Delaney mystery series, featuring snarky “Death Diva” Jane, her canine sidekick Sexy Beast, and a fun love-triangle subplot. Pamela's own beloved poodle, Murray, wants you to know that any similarities between himself and neurotic, high-strung Sexy Beast are purely coincidental.

One Eager Bride to Go is the third story in The Wedding Ring series and is about Sunny Bleecker and Kirk Larsen. These two knew each other long ago and the three matchmaking friends (of Sunny’s) are at it again! This time they have set up Kirk, a widowed single dad, with Sunny, who dated Kirk in high school. What a story! Sunny has had much disappointment in her life, according to her memories, and needs to work through some of those issues in her past in order to get an HEA with Kirk in her future. Again, it’s a standalone story but I love reading about these four friends and couldn’t wait to read it. I liked Sunny, even if she did wear Pepto pink every day (you‘ll have to read the story to figure that one out!) and loved Kirk. Great story and I recommend!
This is definitely a keeper. A romance that really has heart. I unfortunately read this book after it's sequel so I knew some things I shouldn't have before I read it. These books are meant to be read in order and you really should read them in that order! But the story is wonderful. Sunny and Kirk have a history, they were high school sweethearts. Then he left... Sunny has never really found anyone to replace Kirk in her heart but when he comes back to town she wants nothing to do with him, however because of the wedding ring pact she must date him for 3 months. This story is really about a woman who must decides what is more important all of her dreams or the husband of her dreams. Another theme of the story is there is no such thing as 'Complete Perfection.'
Back in high school, the quartet of friends believed in the sanctimony of romance and vowed to help each one find a cherished loved one if they had not married by thirty. As the young ladies turn thirty, none of them have attained the eternal ring. Thus, the matchmaking has begun in earnest resulting in Raven (LOVE¿S FUNNY THAT WAY) and Charli (I DO, BUT HERE¿S THE CATCH) obtaining their heart¿s desire. The team chooses her high school sweetheart Kirk Larson as Sunny Bleecker¿s target. The former Stanford professor is a widower with a toddler while Sunny is still the waitress she was when he left for California to go to college. To Sunny he remains the sexy person who was her only real boyfriend. Yet the attraction between them remains strong, but turns into an adult love. Still, he grieves his beloved first wife, making a permanent relationship between them unattainable. The third ¿Wedding Ring¿ novel, ONE EAGER BRIDE TO GO, is a warm contemporary romance that continues the fun of the first two novels. Sunny lives up to her name while Kirk provides angst as he struggles between his love for Sunny and his love for the deceased Linda. The story line is entertaining especially with visits from the other threesome trying to make the impossible become possible. Fans of the series will eagerly await the final installment as the young women merge their talents to find a loving husband for the last to turn thirty, twice divorced and world class skeptic Amanda.
