The narrator did a fairly good job. However, her talents were wasted on an extremely dull plot. Save your credit or money. The idea behind the Quartet series is alluring, four friends running a bridal business and falling in love with the handsome men that surround them, but that's where any interesting aspect of this series ends. It was not executed well and didn't live up to its potential. Guaranteed your own wedding planning and love story would be more entertaining than Roberts' attempts here.
Parker finally got her own book and it's with Mal! *happy dancing around the room* Like the rest of the series this book is great. The last chapter made me smile like a loon and sigh of happiness. Angela Dawe was a joy to listen to, and her voices are easily distinguishable.
I really liked this book. I liked all the books in this quartet. I liked the four women that made up the company. They were all different: and interesting strong characters.. The story lines were all good too..
No author has ever been able to evoke emotional responses from me as Nora Roberts. She has a never ending talent to make me feel like I'm right there in her stories!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Author knows how to take all her best elements of previous series and bring them forward into this series. See Dreams, Daring and Finding series and Blue Dalia/Black Rose for hero's in this book. Author has the spunk dialogue for all the ladies , spot on
If you ever have wanted soul deep friendships that you can count on, then this book best illustrates what can happen with responsible partners.
She made you love all the characters so you buy all 4 books. She has a fast pace in this book which matched the heroine's personality and made our hero as yummy as N.R. can make them. Her reader in N.R. MacGregor series, great or Tiffany Snow's series, yum!
Yes, every waking hour. Will buy books 1,2,3 as Ms Dawe does this series some very big justice.
I love all of these characters and wanted to see them all come full circle - and Nora Roberts did it beautifully! Like so many who reviewed the first in the series, Vision in White, the narrator did not vary the voices at all and I agree that the lisp was in all of the characters and was very distracting. Angela Dawe, however, who narrated the following 3 books was wonderful!
Loved them all!
All of the voices were very distinct - even her male characters sounded male (not always easy for women to accomplish). She also infused so much life and varying emotions into each one so that I actually felt what they were feeling! Of course, having Nora Roberts flesh them all out so completely has to help a good narrator.
Parker because she is organized like I am, and yet (with the help of her Tums) is able to go with flow - she doesn't lose it when faced with the many problems that arise in putting on weddings.
I think this would make a great TV series - even a 69-year old woman like me - married to a terrific guy for 45 years - enjoys a good wedding, complete with some bridezillas, take-charge mothers, feuding among wedding party members, the endless potential for drama. Even if it starts with all of the ladies already married, the way these couples communicate and are always there for each other is something that would be refreshing for young girls and women to see!
