(High pitch squeal of joy) It’s here!!! The time is finally here! The Final installment of the Emma Rae Creations series was released Monday!!!! Woo hoo!!! Yippee!!! Yahoo!!!
What’s that you say? You have no clue of what I’m talking about?
Well, in that case then, I will start you guys off with the first book here in a review and while you all are off starting from the beginning, I will be in literary heaven reading the last book in the series!
Always the Baker, Never the Bride is the story of Emma Rae Travis, an up and coming premier baker who unfortunately, can’t taste any of her sugary masterpieces because of her diabetes.
On a rainy day in Atlanta, a handsome widower comes into her bakery, Jackson Drake, new owner of a hotel/premier wedding boutique that was the dream of his deceased wife.
All Jackson wanted when he came into the bakery was a cup of black coffee and a brownie. He never expected to find a pastry chef for his new hotel or a woman whose green eyes intrigue him.
Of course, no story would be complete without a wonderful cast of friends and family to make the story fun and exciting. Jackson’s three sisters, Georgiann, Norma Jean, and Madeline are wonderful southern belles who being the older sisters that they are feel the need to help their little brother with the setting up of the hotel. I mean he is a man who doesn’t have a romantic bone in his body.
Then there is Fee, Emma’s Goth baking assistant. Miguel, Jackson’s nephew-in-law and a minister determined to help Jackson during his time of mourning and bring him back to God. Of course you have to add in Emma’s Aunt Sophie, who has a few memory issues. Last but definitely not least, there are Emma’s divorced parents, who happen to be part of the Southern Elite.
Will Jackson be able to put aside his heart ache and see that God has given him a new love? Will the Tanglewood be successful? Will Emma find her true love?
I guess you’ll have to read to find out!

Some very romantic scenes. Don’t believe the hype that Jackson doesn’t have a romantic bone in his body. 😉
