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 is 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 ficticious English hamlet in the Shropshire countryside, but feature a different village couples' story.

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Well I was hooked from the word go of this book all the characters went together so well.
And it's great to read a book that is set in England country side.
Abbie had been to so many weddings and was always a bridesmaid but she was feeling that she would never get married until she clocked eyes with best man miller Davis her legs went like jelly and miller saved her from falling flat on her face. After he found her outside having a moment they both got soaked by sprinklers. Georgie was Abbie's best friend when she saw she was with a handsome man Georgie gave Abbie the biggest smirk.
Abbie had a dog called sumo he was a British bulldog and he never showed any love towards Abbie but after Abbie had seen miller again at another wedding she was snowed in at the hotel so she decided she would walk home but miller said that he would walk her home after a few mishaps they finally got home and sumo was like a puppy towards miller.
This is just a tasted of the book I will let you come to your own minds after you have read the book I can't wait to read the rest of the books when they are released. You go through all emotions from crying at some parts to the comedy parts that are in it.
Will Abbie finally be a bride or will everything fall apart?
I am giving this book 5/5 well done Charlotte a big round of applause to you.
