Thank you for stopping by as I share my review for If You’re Not the One by Laura Briggs as part of the blog blitz today. With thanks to Noelle at Bookouture for the invite to join the tour and for my copy via Netgalley. First of all though let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
A heartwarming, escapist romantic novel for fans of Elin Hilderbrand, Nora Roberts and Nancy Thayer.
Natalie isn’t a romantic. She doesn’t believe in true love, or destiny. She thinks that people are just plain lucky if they happen to find someone. It’s coincidence and nothing more.
As a wedding dress designer though, she knows she has to keep these feelings under wraps. Even if she’s suspicious that Harper, the bride she’s working with, might secretly agree with her. Because if Harper admitted she wasn’t sure about love, it might also mean giving up on a millionaire husband-to-be and the lavish island wedding of her dreams.
But, for Natalie, as her feelings develop for both her on-off boyfriend Chad, and for the boy-next-door Brayden, she starts to fear that her heart might not be as immune to love as she claims…
Could love have been there all along? And as the wedding approaches, who will find a happy-ever-after, who will find their way to themselves, and who will get left behind?

I’m not really sure where to start other than to say that I was so happy to be catching up with the Wedding Belles once again. It’s safe to say that I was taken on quite a journey wondering if there would be any happy ever afters for this fabulous trio. Laura Briggs has created three wonderful characters in Tessa, Natalie and Ama and with each book it has just felt as if I’m catching up with old friends. All three characters are different yet compliment each other so well as they work together in their business planning weddings. Although this book is part of a series I would say in a way this book works as a standalone so please don’t let that put you off picking up a copy. However as usual to get a full character background it might be best starting with book one. What I will say is that all of their stories are explored along with giving you enough detail to enjoy the book without any confusion. Plus it’s a wonderful series so definitely worth picking up a copy 😉
In If You’re Not the One you get to catch up with the Wedding Belles love lives, both the highs and the lows but also meet Harper as they plan her wedding. I’m trying to be as vague as I can regarding the plot because I would hate to give anything away. However there are plenty of complications and tangled relationships to sort out before the final pages. At times this book isn’t necessarily the most fast paced but what it did instead was pull me into the characters lives and made me care about them. Laura Briggs builds the story up carefully ensuring that I felt that all important emotional connection. Along with each plot strand making me smile, sigh and pretty much be just over the moon with the outcomes! There may have been a few happy tears especially in Natalie’s case.
The ending well what a perfect and beautiful way to finish the story, leaving me all warm and cosy as if I was experiencing it right there with them.
If You’re Not the One has it all romance, friendships and a gorgeous heartwarming quality!
