Never The Bride by Charlotte Fallowfield Review

Never The Bride

Abbie Carter felt doomed as she clutched her bouquet and started walking up the aisle. Again. She felt like she was stuck in some kind of Groundhog Day wedding nightmare. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Eight dresses, most of them hideous, were already stuffed in her attic space. She had more bridesmaid dresses than relationships. Was she really that unlucky in love? She despaired of ever finding her soul mate and was convinced that if she packed away dress thirteen in her attic, she’d never get to wear the coveted white one and have her happy ever after.

That was until she locked eyes with one of the handsome ushers, whose wink turned her elegant and well-practiced glide up the aisle into a flailing Bambi-on-ice spectacle. Miller Davis was the first man in forever to make her heart skip a beat, as well as her legs turn to jelly. And, for once, her interest in a man didn’t seem to be one-sided. It was just a shame that the Atlantic Ocean separated them. Abbie couldn’t even make a relationship with her elderly fat pooch, Sumo, work, so what chance did she have with a permanent New Yorker? Her best friend, Georgie, told her to ignore the miles that separated her from Miller and to go for it, saying that true love knew no bounds.

Was Abbie fated to always be the bridesmaid, or would her wish for the perfect day with the man of her dreams ever come true? 


I'm not a fan of romantic comedies,  as I have said in past reviews. They make me cringe and I quickly get annoyed and stop reading them. But that changed when I read Until We Collide by Charlotte Fallowfield, which had me rolling on the floor with laughter. And now I'm thrilled to say that the author is back with with a new book called Never The Bride, and I can't believe I'm saying this, but this book is even better than Until We Collide.

Abbie Carter has suffered through so many duties as a bridesmaid, that she thought she would never find her mister right. But  until then she has Georgie  (her best friend) her Neighbor Daphne, who was like a surrogate mother to her and Sumo her bull dog, that seemed to have a grudge against her. And add to that high arch nemesis Fifi, Abbie's live in Dilbury was a simple one. But Abbie wondered if she would be stuck clutching bouquets and walking up the aisle in awful bridesmaids dresses for the rest of her life.

But one wedding reception she met the amazing American, Miller Davis, who was simply perfect for her, and luckily for Abbie, he thought she was perfect too! There was just one thing that stood in their way... the Atlantic Ocean, see you I left wondering? Will Abbie keep her man? or will she always be the bridesmaid??

OMG!! This book is so freaking amazing!! I love it so much! It truly is a masterpiece. I love Abbie, with her self-deprecating humor, and willingness to make a fool of herself, to show someone how much they mean to her. I love Miller's vulnerability and uncertainty to romance and trust. And Daphne and George's character just really perfect the book.

The author's writing is witty, heartwarming and the plot had me doubled over with laughter! This book is simply perfection and one of my favorites of all time.

I give Never the Bride 5 stars!!
