Review of Always the Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk - Five **

Review of Always the Bridesmaid by Lindsey Kelk - Five **


The hilarious new novel from Lindsey Kelk, author of the bestselling I Heart series
Everyone loves a bridesmaid - except Maddie, who’s perpetually asked to be one.
Everyone loves a wedding - except Maddie’s best friend, who’s getting divorced.

And everyone loves the way Maddie’s so happy behind the scenes - except Maddie herself.
One best friend is in wedding countdown while the other heads for marriage meltdown. 

And as Maddie juggles her best chance at promotion in years with bridezilla texts and late-night counselling sessions, she starts to wonder – is it time to stop being the bridesmaid?


I have cried with laughter reading this book. It is just fabulous!

Maddie is the perfect central character. She is way too loyal but incredibly realistic and long suffering. Except when it comes to relationships. Then, like so many of us, she becomes unrealistic, needy, and lives in a fantasy world of what should be!

Her friends Lauren and Sarah are like chalk and cheese as are their situations. One is getting married and one is getting divorced. Maddie is an events organiser with a boss from hell (Shona made me really laugh out loud) and the book is how she copes through a 3 month period.

Some of the situations are extreme to say the least but Lindsey make them seem truly believable. There a bad guys and good guys.....and then there's Lauren's mother! The characterisations are wonderful. I'm not sure if I could ever cope with meeting them in real life, but reading about them was pure joy!
