Thirty-six-year-old Emma Rae Travis has been baking specialty cakes and melt-in-your-mouth pastries at The Backstreet Bakery in historic Roswell, just outside of Atlanta, for the last six years. But here’s the rub about her job as a baker … Emma is diabetic. When she tastes her creations, it can only be in the most minute portions. Emma is considered an artisan for the stunning crème brulee wedding cake that won her the Passionate Palette Award last year, but she’s never even had one full slice of it. When Jackson Drake hears about this local baker who has won a prestigious award for her wedding cake artistry, he tells his assistant to be sure and include her in the pastry tastings scheduled at his new wedding destination hotel the following week. And for Jackson, that particular day has started out badly with two workmen trapped in a broken elevator and a delivery of several dozen 300-thread-count bed linens in the wrong size abandoned in the lobby. But when the arrogant baker he met a week prior in Roswell stumbles into the dining room with a platter of pastries and a bucketful of orders, he knows for certain: It’s going to be a really rotten day. Can these two ill-suited players master the high-wire act and make a go of their new business venture? Or will they take each other crashing downward, without a net? And will the surprise wedding at The Tanglewood be theirs?
Always the Baker Never the Bride, is a wonderful witty romance that is really easy to read, because you want to finish it! Taking place in current day Georgia, you see the old southern charm and beauty queens pop out in this baker proportioned novel.
Award winning baker, Emma Travis is different than other bakers. She's diabetic, and when your a diabetic you need to limit your sugar intake. Making it rough for Emma to eat her own award winning wedding cakes! But another problem is her boss, and when Emma's offered the head baking position at the new wedding destination hotel she can't resist. And not only the position but her new boss as well doesn't make the job so bad. But will her boss, Jackson's sisters cause havoc at the coming out party for the new wedding resort? Or will something else happen. Maybe their's love in Emma's baking after all.
This novel is witty, funny and hilarious; Jackson's sisters just add to the hilarity because of their constant nit picking. And in the end Always the Baker Never the Bride by Sandra Bricker is a great romance read (and even thought they say it's adult there's really nothing adultish in the book yah theres kissing and thats about it). The cover is also extremely cute, but against some other wedding involved novels is the same old thing. But I still love the cover! So if you want a cuter romance book for a quick pickup I suggest Always the Baker Never the Bride.
