Review: Always the Baker, Finally the Bride by Sandra D. Bricker

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?



I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the Emma Rae Creations series! I do wish I would have gone back to reread the other three before starting this one [that whole “horrible with names” thing], but it wasn’t long before it all came flooding back to me – in a good way ;). If you haven’t read the first three, I don’t think it’s necessary, but I do think it would be very beneficial.

Jackson has an offer to buy Tanglewood. He and Emma, as they finalize plans for their wedding, try to decide what to do – what is best not only for them, but also for everyone else at Tanglewood who are family – literally or figuratively.

But between new babies, Emma’s health, and the pressure of trying to create the perfect cake for their wedding, it’s all too much.

Sandy does a wonderful job of pulling us back into the Tanglewood world and leaving us wishing it was real. We’re staying in the area next month and I so wish we could stay there!

And Hildie – I LOVE Hidlie! Oh how I wish we’d get to see more of her!

A wonderful final installment of the Emma Rae series, and a wonderful read besides! One thing I love? I’ve already got an advance copy of Sandra’s next offering waiting to be read :D.

Overall rating: 9 out of 10 stars

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for an ecopy in exchange for my honest review.
