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?

I just recently found author Laura Bernard and she is fantastic! I love her chick-lit/rom-com/romance writing, her humor and the way that you can just zip right through her books! The carefree style of Laura Barnard’s writing makes for a quick, fun read that leaves you feeling happy, free and excited.

This is the second book in the series and it was just as amazing. I would first recommend that you read Book #1, The Debt & the Doormat; however, The Baby & the Bride, book #2, is written so well that even new readers to this series could read this as a stand alone and understand perfectly all that is going on throughout it.

Reading The Baby & the Bride, book #2, is like meeting up with some old, close friends. Within seconds you become engrossed with the characters you know and loved from Book 1 (The Debt & the Doormat) and can easily relate to them, remember all that they went through and continue to experience their roller-coaster of emotions and lives. There were several parts throughout the book that had me loudly laughing out loud (especially when Poppy decides to wax) and I had to look around to see if people were looking at me like I was crazy!

I loved the “realness” of the book and the situations that the characters found themselves in. The plot flowed throughout the book and it was hard to put it down! I loved the story, the characters, the details, but most of all I enjoyed the way in which I could relate to some of the disasters that occurred to Jazz, Poppy, Ryan, Ollie, and the others. If you are looking for a fun book, or a book that would cheer up anyone, then this is the book/series for you! If it doesn’t make you laugh out loud then nothing will! Enjoy!
