More About the Author
"But life is what happens while we're busy making other plans," she jokes. While searching for a way to earn a living and pay her tuition, Sandie says she "stumled into" her own business working as a personal assistant and publicist to some of daytime television's hottest stars. When her mother became ill on the other side of the country, however, Sandie put soap opera clients, film dreams--and Los Angeles--in her rearview mirror to take on a new role: Caregiver.
"I guess most people would see my career as a publicist as a sort of dream job. But giving it up and moving to Florida to take care of my mom until she died turned out to be the best thing that could have happened to me!" she declares. When, at her mother's urging, she channeled her writing dreams from the screen to the page, a reader favorite was born! "Twenty books later," she says, "I'd say God had another plan for me. I do still dabble in screenwriting because my passion for visual storytelling is still a strong force in my life, but the opportunity that comes with combining my Christian faith with publishing platforms is a blessing I never expected and wouldn't trade for anything!"
In November 2013, Sandie packed her car once again and this time headed north. "I was raised in Cincinnati," she says. "So it feels like full circle to find myself led back to Ohio." She is in the process of making a home in Toledo where her home church and best friend of more than 40 years are located. This year, she has taken her established writer brand of Laugh Out Loud Fiction and transitioned to Live Out Loud Fiction. "I think I've grown as a writer over the last couple of years," she says. "Although humor will never filter out of my stories, I do think my readers have enjoyed the deeper spiritual and life lesson threads that have become part of my storytelling."
In the summer of 2014, Sandie entered into a conversation with Eddie Jones, founder of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas, about creating and operating a new imprint for LPC. In August of the same year, BLING! was announced to the world with Sandie named as the Managing Editor for the line. "BLING! is a contemporary imprint of romantic fiction," she says, "but with a little something extra. We're now accepting submissions from novice and established writers alike, and I'm really eager to put my storytelling passion to work in bringing new and different stories to readers looking for a PG-rated source of contemporary content."

A new owner has bought a local Atlanta hotel and is turning it into a wedding paradise and he hires Emma and her trusty assistant Fiona to come on board. There is an attraction between Emma and her new boss, Jackson Drake, but he is still in love with his wife who passed away. In fact this hotel was her passion and her dream and he is fulfilling it in her memory.
A parade of funny Southern belles throughout this story, keeps it interesting and hilarious even at times, between the "hens" Jackson's sisters and Emma's mother and her Aunt Sophie, there is so much southern charm in this story it oozes. A truly delightful story that you will not want to miss. Sandra Bricker satisfies again with her wonderful writing and story telling. I greatly enjoyed this book, and was pleased at her faith content in the story, and also pleased that the Southern belles did not taint the story. US $13.99 4 stars

The book if full of wedding advice, recipes and tidbits relating to weddings. It's fun but distracts from the story, not that's much of it to start with. I noted that the french translation at the end was clearly made by a computer. That a pet peeve of mine : if you don't speak french, at least find someone who does to correct your text or avoid it.
A problem with some christian fiction is that the characters never feel real. I think they are just too nice or they just don't react as normal people do. I never felt Emma and Jackson falling in love, their feelings for each other were just too sweet and lukewarm. Emma never gets annoyed when Jackson steps back. The other characters are not better : the Italian chef is a caricature, so are Jackson's three sisters in the role of southern ladies. Jackson lacks substance. He hides from his brother in law, also his pastor, because he does not want to talk about God. Why hide ? Anyone would have told Miguel to back off. Also, an experienced pastor should know better that to force feed God on unwilling ears as it is counterproductive and will probably push someone to the opposite direction.
This is meant as a christian romance and as such, it delivers. For my taste, it lacked substance.

Totally bland and predictable. Not worth reading. The characters lack development and the story feels unfinished. A thumb down for me.Published 1 month ago by C. Karp
