    This is another great book in the series about The Tanglewood Inn and the people who work at this complete wedding destination. The characters are well developed and funny. I am really enjoying several of Sandra Bricker's books!

    For someone whose friends tease that I am allergic to everything, this book was perfect for me. Sherilyn keeps breaking out in hives & can't breathe, unable to figure out what's causing it (been there, done that). After losing her wedding dress, she wonders if she is allergic to her fiancé or his beloved dog. Even though Andy and Sherilyn love each other very much, I had to wonder if they were going to make it to the altar without any more havoc trying to wreck their special day.

    Just like the first book in this series "Always a Baker Never a Bride" this book was great. I love Sandra Bricker's sense of humor. Her books are upbeat and funny and "Always a Wedding Planner Never a Bride" does not disappoint. I can't wait to read then next one.

    Sometimes an author creates a place and a people so warm and intriguing that you want to return. Again and again.

    This explains, at least in part, the popularity of Lucy Maud Montgomery's ANNE OF GREEN GABLES books or Jan Karon's MITFORD novels. And I also believe it applies to the whimsical world Sandra Bricker creates for her readers in her EMMA RAE CREATION series.

    At the Tanglewood wedding hotel in Atlanta, little things mean a lot. And Sherilyn Caine, diva of detail, is ready. She has her dream job, a dream fiancé, even a dream return to friends and adoptive family in Atlanta to accompany them. But as she manages others' weddings in expert style, she wonders if her own is about to fall apart.

    The problems begin when little things—including two lost wedding dresses, an unwanted pet, and a mysterious allergy—loom large. Will they overpower Sherilyn's happiness as well?

    In ALWAYS THE BAKER, NEVER THE BRIDE (Abingdon, 2010), readers fell in love with the Tanglewood and its diabetic cake artisan, Emma Rae Travis. A warm wedding party of characters and sparkling touches of humor only added to the book's charm. ALWAYS THE WEDDING PLANNER, NEVER THE BRIDE (Abingdon, 2011) brings it all back with the delightful additions of Sherilyn; her doctor fiancé, Andy; and plenty of detours along the way. Creative, fun extras include wedding tips and tricks at the close of each chapter with the additional bonus of some of Emma's best recipes.

    If you need a fun book to help you escape the winter doldrums or an inspiring read to remind you that the truth sets free, say "I do" to ALWAYS THE WEDDING PLANNER.

    Like me, you'll wish the Tanglewood were real—because you know and love the people who work there.

    Wedding planner Sherilyn Keyes has left Chicago behind to marry Andrew Drummond IV, an Atlanta native with a family name that tops all the social registers. She joins Emma, her old college roommate and baker, in working at the Tanglewood Inn, a destination wedding hotel. But Sherilyn faces a series of challenges to her relationship and her faith as she and Andrew settle into their new jobs and begin planning their own wedding.

    This is the second book in Sandra Bricker's Never the bride series, following Always the Baker, Never the Bride (which I found to be a sweet love story, if you will excuse the pun). Always the Wedding Planner was enjoyable, with moments of humour, but overall I found it bittersweet - there just seemed to be a sadness about it that was not present in Always the Baker, which I enjoyed much more.

    Some of what I found funny might have been unintentional. For example, at one point in the story, Emma bakes a new desert. She says, "it's called Pavlova. It's an Australian dessert that Russell told me about". Hmmm. The actual origin of Pavlova is the source of much trans-Tasman rivalry, and we in New Zealand don't exactly agree with this interpretation. Also, the e-book I reviewed had a few entertaining buy slightly distracting typographical errors (the song title ‘Waltzing With Matilda', a reference to an ‘empire waste' dress), but these will hopefully be fixed in the final print version.
