Always the Designer, Never the Bride: A Review

Summary: Audrey began her designing career by creating wedding dresses for Barbie. After two years in New York City, Audrey's dreams are on the verge of collapsing. When Audrey heads south to the Tanglewood Inn to be a bridesmaid in her life-long friend's wedding, she's hoping to gain a new client in addition to celebrating a wedding. JR, the groom's brother, rides up in his motorcycle, and Audrey is swept away.

My thoughts: The first half of this book was a frustrating read. As a fan of the first two books in the series, I was eager to hear what was happening with the characters I love, but the constant "catching" up with old characters stifled the development of the new characters. I would have liked to be introduced to the main characters and had the more familiar ones pop in throughout the book. JR and Audrey are great characters. They are quirky and fun, but I felt I didn't get to know them until pretty late in the book.

Overall, it's a fun read. It's not one I will re-read or probably remember vividly six months from now, but it was enjoyable while it lasted.

I received this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts and opinions are my own.
