Always the Baker, Finally the Bride by Sandra D. Bricker
Abingdon Press, 1st April 2013 

In Always the Baker, Never the Bride, readers fell in love with Emma Rae and Jackson, and they’ve gotten more acquainted with them in the two books that followed.

But now it’s time for the diamond to meet the road as Jackson fields an offer to sell The Tanglewood, a move that will uproot this high-flying family act once and for all. Get reacquainted with all of the lovable and quirky characters from the first three books as your favorite diabetic baker figures out if she’ll achieve her greatest goal of all: Will Emma, at last, become FINALLY the Bride?

It’s finally here, the final installment of Sandra D. Bricker’s popular Another Emma Rae Creation Series and this time around we’re brought back to Emma and Jackson and the conclusion to the love story that made us all laugh and cry with Always the Baker, Never the Bride

I fell in love with Emma and Jackson when I read their story, I then fell in love with Sherilyn and Andy in Always the Wedding Planner, Never the Bride. Unfortunately I didn’t love Audrey and J.R. nearly as much in Always the Designer, Never the Bride but I was eager for Emma and Jackson‘s story to be concluded.

The first thing I noticed when I opened Always the Baker, Finally the Bride was the voices of Sandra’s characters. For the most part they are distinct and I really enjoyed hearing Fee again and nothing beats Sherilyn’s passion and zeal, as it just bounces off the page. I laughed alot in this book and if I wasn’t laughing, I was smiling. 

There is much to like with this book. Jackson’s merry-go-round of personal assitanats is very amusing, Emma’s inability to create a cake to suit her and Jackson’s wedding, Sherilyn’s gusto with everything she does, Fee’s deadpan humour and many more.  

In the end we got to have the wedding we’ve been wanting since readers met these two and what a joyous journey it’s been!
