One Eager Bride to Go - Pamela Burford

When four high school friends promise to find husbands for one another if any of them are still single at age thirty, they have no idea how complicated the pact will make their lives twelve years later! Book 3 of the Wedding Ring matchmaker series is One Eager Bride to Go.

One Eager Bride to Go
One Eager Bride to Go by Pamela Burford

The Prospective Bride: Sunny Bleecker, who’s been waiting tables at Wafflemania for twelve years… and waiting just as long for her knight in shining armor to come rescue her. She can’t wait for her matchmaking friends to find him!
The Prospective Groom: Kirk Larsen, who’s a college professor, a widowed single dad, and Sunny’s high school sweetheart. Between teaching and raising a toddler, Kirk isn’t looking for romance, but his unexpected reunion with Sunny feels so perfect.
The Hitch: Sunny is dubious when her blind date turns out to be her old boyfriend, but her doubts quickly evaporate. Soon she’s walking on air, dreaming of a white picket fence and a passel of kids… until a devastating secret threatens their second chance at happiness.

My Review

It's true that life often doesn't go quite to plan. While you might see yourself in a particular role, or place, there's no guarantee that it will happen. Sunny has spent the last 12 years, waiting for her life to start. Rather than going out and finding what she want's, she sat and waited for it to come to her. But it just hasn't happened. While her friends have gone out and followed the careers and lives that they have dreamt of following, Sunny has just stayed in the same place, doing the same thing.

Sunny is thrilled at the idea of her friends setting her up with a potential future husband. What she doesn't expect is to be set up with her high school boyfriend, the only man she ever loved, Kirk. Kirk seems to offer all that Sunny has ever wanted, but is everything as straight forward as it seems. what is it that Kirk isn't telling her.

I enjoyed this third installment in the Wedding Ring series. Sunny is forced to question what and who she really wants out of life. When Sunny has put everything on hold with only one goal in mind, how much is she willing to give up, what does she really want?

 The wedding ring series is a great series. All four friends are very different with different dreams and ideas. One more to go, I really recommend this series.
