If You're Not The One by Laura Briggs


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 really enjoyed this book. It was a great easy read which I lost myself in for a few hours over a couple of evenings. 

Laura writing style creates great characters which are easily identifiable to many people in my friendship circle, work colleagues and maybe even family members and therefore were instantly likeable. The storylines are easy to follow, and believable, something which I like in a book - although I really enjoy psychological thrillers or legal dramas, sometimes I just need to pick up a book and be able to see it happening in real life and this is one such book. 

I note that this is the third book in the series however I haven't read any of the others and I still enjoyed this book all about a wedding planner business with three partners who all have their own lives and trials and tribulations. I like to think that wedding planners and all their contacts who aim to make a couples wedding day the best day of their lives have a great job but of course the truth is very different.

Thank you to Bookouture for inviting me to take part in this blog tour and a copy of the book in return for an honest review.
