Every so often, I read a book and put off writing the review. Life gets in the way and then before you know it is time for the review. So I found myself reading TUCKER - ETERNITY SPRINGS: THE MCBRIDES OF TEXAS by Emily March for the second time. I was immediately reminded of some noteworthy moments that had taken residence in my memory. I remembered how much I had enjoyed TUCKER so I decided to sit back and revisit some old friends.
Gillian Thacker believes in happy endings after all that’s the goal of her bridal gown business which is to provide the wedding gown of the bride’s dream. Gillian and her mother are partners in Bliss Bridal Salon in the smalltown of Redemption, Texas. You know where everyone knows your name and your business. The most recent issue is with Gillian’s impending wedding. Even Gillian has doubts about her relationship and the wedding she spent a year planning. And when her heart is broken, Gillian has to figure out how to move on. . .

The good folks of Redemption want their Gillian to have the love and life she's always dreamt of and they are a real force of nature when they set their minds to making something happen. . .
In TUCKER - ETERNITY SPRINGS: THE MCBRIDES OF TEXAS, Emily March works tirelessly keeping spirits on high even when life seems to enjoy doling out sucker punches. Emily March wants poor Gillian to pull up her boots and lose the poor me attitude. She creatively uses Tucker's optimism and survival skills to lead Gillian out of her doldrums. Emily March’s use of humor is infectious which makes TUCKER a welcome memorable addition to the Eternity Springs: McBrides series, following his cousin Jackson's story. It is about breaking out of a self-imposed mode and going by instinct. This series can be read out of order, but each story has been a delight filled with love, humor, and angst.
In Eternity Springs: The McBrides of Texas, New York Times bestselling author Emily March presents a brand new arc set in the Lone Star State that features a family-linked trilogy within the author's romantic series.
Hope springs eternal in this enchanting Texas town.
