Always the Baker Never the Bride by Sandra D Bricker

They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

But who would want cake they couldn’t’ eat?

Just ask Emma Rae Travis about that.  She’s a baker of confections who is diabetic and can’t enjoy them.  When Emma meets Jackson Drake, the escapee from Corporate America who is starting a wedding destination hotel to fulfill a dream that belonged to someone else, this twosome and their crazy family ties bring new meaning to the term “family circus.”  The Atlanta social scene will never be the same!


This was a nice light inspirational contemporary romance that hit all the romantic buttons needed to make it a great read without pushing religious content at you.

Emma is diabetic and cannot eat the things she loves to make – I can only imagine how it would be to love baking and even win awards at it without even knowing how things taste – that is talent!

Jackson is the owner of a hotel that he is turning into a wedding retreat this was an impulse buy after his wife passed away, it had always been her dream to do something like this.

The support cast (rest of staff and family) are a riot and make this book so enjoyable -from the controlling southern sisters to Emma’s dysfunctional parents who surprise her in the end, you also have the eccentric chef and Emma’s right hand goth assistant, and the best is Aunt Sophie who is adorable. You fall in love with them all.
