Review: Never The Bride by Charlotte Fallowfield

From Charlotte Fallowfield, bestselling rom-com author, comes Never The Bride - A laugh out loud romantic comedy novel full of heart-warming friendships, romance, and quintessential British humour - Coming 28th February 2017.

Available to pre-order from Amazon now!

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?

While Never The Bride will be a standalone story, it's the first in the Dilbury Village series of romantic comedy novels. All of them will be set in the quaint fictitious English hamlet in the Shropshire countryside, but feature a different village couples' story.

 Review byApril

 5 'I've come to trim your bush.' Stars

Whisked away to the quaint English countryside village of Dilbury, Charlotte Fallowfield takes us on quite the hilarious adventure in Never The Bride with Abbie Carter as our guide. Prepare for laughs and hilarious happenings at every flip of the page!

'Well, give me a minute to get out of these pajamas and I can show you how I want my bush done. I kind of like a shape to it, you know? It makes it look more pretty.'

Ever the hopeless romantic, Abbie swears she's been cursed when it comes to all things love. After a crushing break-up that landed quite the blow to her heart, the curse lives on in Never The Bride. Doomed with the fate of being a brides maid for life, she's pretty much given up on ever finding true love, of being the bride with a handsome and dashing man at her side. With her best friend, Georgie, and her flatulent expelling pooch at her side, life would go on in Dilbury.

With yet another wedding to partake in, with hilarious dress fittings and the worst luck ever causing Abbie to get down, dirty, and wet with a groomsmen... maybe her luck was taking a turn for the better? Hansom American man in the flesh! Or will it be the toned to perfection English groundsmen? Decisions that her heart will make for her, because after all, The heart wants what the heart wants.

'All I could think about was that he was holding my hand and how lovely it felt.'

Never The Bride was an amazing roller-coaster ride through the highs and lows of Abbie's life and love life. This story is so much more than a hilarious romantic comedy. It touched on real matters that would suck the emotions out of me. Gah!  Whatever Charlotte writes, she turns to gold! I cannot wait to read the next installment in this fabulous and addictive series.

'Wow, hot, sexy, and chivalrous. I felt like I was in Vegas at the slot machines, and the jackpot had just sounded the alarm.' That pretty much sums up my reading experience of this book!
