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 Carlys wedding is nothing short of an event, complete with Prince Charming, and the festivities make Audrey question whether theres a prince of her own anywhere in her future.
Enter the grooms brother and best man. Shaggy-haired, tattooed bad boy J.R. Hunt couldnt 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
"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
Audrey Regan's wedding dress design career seems to be going down the drain. She doesn't like the city she lives in, and the only clients she can seem to hold onto are her friends. But when she goes home to Atlanta to help with her best friend Carly's wedding dress and the stress begins to build, a new line of opportunities come her way, including the opportunity to fall in love with a fun loving man with a tattoo and a motorcycle. What starts off as a much needed, random night on the town turns into a developing, complicated romance between the two. But Audrey isn't sure if she's ready for a relationship, and J.R. lives most of his life on the road. How can their two lifestyles become compatible enough for a lasting relationship? Especially when everyone around them seems to be coupling up?
Readers of the modern economy will relate to Audrey's struggle to pay bills and stay in business, and Christians will find comfort in the Lords providence for this lovable character. This story lacks true moral conviction, however. It focuses on making character believable, rather than making them strong Christians who recall Scripture every time trouble comes along. While Audrey's friends are made out as genuine Christians a few times throughout the book (using instances of prayer and such), Bricker does not make it clear whether or not Audrey is a Christian. Audrey refers to the Bible in her hotel room at one point, reading Isaiah 44:11, which says, "O, you afflicted one, tossed with tempest, and not comforted. Behold, I will lay your stones with colorful gems, and lay your foundations with sapphires." Audrey says a quick prayer based on the verse and its encouragement, but is later embarrassed to mention it to her friends, and when things start to look up for her, she doesnt credit her happiness to God.
The lack of preaching does not inhibit the story, though. Bricker gives the reader a great, relatable, well paced story that any fiction reader is bound to enjoy. Harmony Wheeler, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
