Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride by Sandra D Bricker

The second book in the Emma Rae series, Always the Wedding Planner definitely measures up to it's predecessor.

Always the Wedding Planner focuses on Emma Rae's best friend, Sherilyn Caine. A wedding planner who moved back "home" to Chicago after college, Sherilyn finds herself back in Atlanta and planning a wedding of her very own. Sherilyn is also in need of something pretty important... a job. Of course Emma Rae tells her boyfriend, Jackson, all about her best friend. And how convenient that Jackson's sister is wanting to pass the wedding planning reins along. Sherilyn basically has the job before she even got the interview, but what comes next?

During a sort of orientation with Jackson's sister, something (or rather, someone) landed right in their laps. None other than Russel Walker, the famous actor... who was drunk as a skunk. Russel quickly finds himself in the folds of the Tanglewood Inn and it's make-shift family. Which now includes Sherilyn.

While planning her own wedding (along with so many others') Sherilyn begins to think she is cursed. Her wedding dress from Chicago never made it to Atlanta. Her second dress mysteriously disappeared from the Tanglewood... And she's repeatedly having an allergic reaction, when she's around Andy! What other explanation is there? Is there a reason Sherilyn could be cursed? Is she hiding a dirty little secret... Well... You'll have to read to find out!!

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It's not my favorite in the series, but that's only because I felt like there was SO much going on. I wanted to get back to the nitty gritty. The book is still a page turner, though. The first appearance of Russel Walker is one to be remembered, and you meet JR and his future sister-in-law as well (they are also in Always the Designer). Sherilyn and Andy's is one that should be looked up to. And my favorite part?? The big news shared by Emma Rae and Jackson, AND by Fee and her always-making-her-swoon-new-love!!!

Don't forget about all the wonderful tidbits in between so  many chapters. From awesome wedding planning lists (I'm thinking about you Miss Ashley!!) to absolutely delicious sounding recipes, you won't be disappointed!!
