Format: Paperback
Lindsey already writes two very successful rom-com series and so it's always equal measures exciting and nerve-wrecking when a favourite author releases a book that is a stand-alone. Exciting because it's a new book from a favourite author, period, nerve-wrecking because what if I don't like the new characters or storyline? Luckily for her fans, Lindsey has written another hilarious read filled with brilliant characters you'll want to be friends with.

As this delightful rom-com's title may give away, the story focuses on a girl, Maddie, who feels like she is always the bridesmaid; second best to her friends, sister and even at work she just muddles along without any real ambition. It has worked well for her so far, but she does start to wonder if there's more to aim for in life. This changes when one of her best friends is getting married and she's roped in, once more, to be the bridesmaid and basically be the person organising everything behind the scenes. It's not that she doesn't want to help her friend, she does, but Maddie starts to realise that perhaps the people around her take her too much for granted and she can be far more than just a bridesmaid in the background.

While I want to party with I Heart's Angela and Jenny Lopez, and go on an exotic holiday with About A Girl's Tess, Maddie is the character by Lindsey's hand I feel is most relatable to me personally. Sure, she ended in some ridiculous slapstick moments at times, but that was hugely enjoyable to read and underneath the laugh-out-loud moments there were some real issues dealing with someone being unappreciated at work, among friends and trying to find that magical one true love (something which most people can relate to at one point or another in their lives!).

The excitement has been bubbling yet again as the release date of a new Lindsey Kelk book is in sight, I feel like a kid about to walk into a sweetshop as I hold my copy of Always the Bridesmaid and I know my bum will not leave this couch for the day now I have this book in my hands!

Maddie has her hands full, one of her best friends Lauren is celebrating her upcoming marriage and e pets Maddie to plan it all for her in a ridiculously short time span whilst her other best friend Sarah has revealed she is unexpectedly getting a divorce. As Maddie tries to juggle work as an events planner assistant with a promotion on the cards with being the supportive friend to Lauren and Sarah she needs to take her brothers advice and "Just say No" once in a while and put herself first.

In true Lindsey Kelk form you can expect a fun and witty read with flawed characters in Always the Bridesmaid. The book is told by diary entry's in the bridesmaid journal which worked really well in this book and I loved at the beginning of each entry the Today I feel, and Today I am Thankful for part they made me chuckle as they went from bad to worse!

Maddie, Lauren and Sarah are close friends and deep down love each other and are supportive but there are many times where their relationship became quite explosive.

This book was fantastic and hilarious throughout. The only downside is that the ending seemed quite rushed. I've been a fan of Lindsey's for a while now and this seems to be the case in her last few books. Anyone who follows Lindsey on Twitter will know she documents how she's racing to meet writing deadlines and sadly I think this is reflected in her book's endings on occasions.
Having said that I'll always be a big fan of hers. Can't wait for her next one!

I ended up staying up until goodness knows when to finish this book. Written so well that you can feel yourself there laughing, crying and cringing every step of the way.

I would recommend this to anyone who has read the I Heart series, Single Girl's To Do List & What A Girl Want's/About A Girl. Especially as in this book, and others by Lindsey Kelk, there are sneaky little character crossovers that make me inexplicably happy. It makes the whole world that Lindsey has created seem even more real.

I think I may just have the read this again - and soon!

I can't even put into words the excitement I felt when this book arrived early. Lindsey Kelk is the Queen of this genre. In fact, let's make her the Queen of everything, she is pretty amazing after all. Seriously though, I read her books and wonder just how she does it. Picking up a Lindsey Kelk novel is the ultimate pick me up, I swear even just holding one in my hands makes me feel better about myself when I'm feeling down. Always the Bridesmaid was no different, I loved every single page of it. I finished it and immediately wanted to read it again.

Our main character is Maddie and she has a real time of it throughout Always the Bridesmaid. Just how many things can go wrong for one person? Answer: a lot. Maddie is a party planner finally being given the chance to receive a long overdue promotion. Meanwhile one best friend, Lauren, has just gotten engaged and of course expects Maddie to help organise it, and to be on call 24/7, while the other, Sarah, is getting divorced. Bad time to be asked to be a bridesmaid. Maddie documents the months that follow in her bridesmaid journal, and some of the stuff in that journal left me incredibly grateful that it's something I could never be asked to do.

I remember when About a Girl was announced and it wasn't an Angela Clarke book. I was apprehensive to say the least, would it be as good? Well, we now know that it was just as good and so I wondered just how Maddie would compare with Angela and Tess. I love how Lindsey manages to make each of her main characters so different but equally lovable at the same time and with a couple of similarities. I just loved Maddie to the point where I wished she was an actual person, that I knew her in real life, that we were best friends. Yes, I found myself wanting to stalk a fictional character.
