REVIEW: The Baby & the Bride by Laura Bernard

Sequel to the #1 Amazon Best-Seller, The Debt & the Doormat (available for FREE)

Poppy and Jazz’s lives sound perfect on paper. Jazz has a new baby and Poppy’s getting married. But their realities are very different.

Poppy must strive to keep her cool new job with crazy hours, while trying to keep Ryan happy. Before she knows it her wedding has got out of control, thanks to her mother, the runners at work are bullying her, her parents are in financial difficulty and she’s doubting everything and everyone she ever knew.

Meanwhile Jazz is struggling with motherhood, something a credit card won’t fix. Why won’t this baby give her a break? Will Jazz be able to cope before she loses it?

And will Poppy make it down the aisle? Will Ryan even be waiting?

Review: 4 Stars
The Baby & the Bride picks up a few months after The Debt & the Doormat left off and immediately pulls you in with laughter. We continue to follow Poppy and her life of people pleasing but are also given the POV of her best friend Jazz as she adjusts to being a new mother. In this story we get to experience their ups and downs as they continue to discover their road to being official grown-ups no matter how much they try to hold on to the good ol’ days of their youth.

I enjoyed the comical situations they’re thrust into as they plan a wedding and becoming accustomed to having a baby in their group. Poppy’s ever intrusive mother keeps everyone on their toes with her take charge, over the top persona while Ryan, the gorgeous groom-to-be, deals with family drama, due to Poppy’s meddling. 

The characters are just wonderfully ordinary people with typical dramas occasionally overshadowed by Poppy’s constant bad luck. There were several instances I nearly fell over with laughter.  This was a great comedy and would be handy to have when getting over a serious book hangover from an intense read. 

My suggestion is to get cozy, grab a glass of wine and enjoy.  I highly recommend it.
