Publisher's Summary

The women at Vows - a wedding planning company in Connecticut - make it their business to create memorable events for couples sealing their bonds. And though the bonds among Parker, Emma, Mac, and Laurel may not be official, they are very real - and equally worthy of celebration.

Mackensie Elliot's experience with her broken family has convinced her the only way to make happiness last is to take a picture of it. She does just that at Vows - where her photos, Laurel's cakes, Emma's flowers, and Parker's almost frightening organizational skills combine for a flourishing business. As a bonus, the four friends are able to live on the grounds of Parker's sprawling family estate, where the weddings and other events are staged. Sometimes it means dealing with drama - but even the worst mother-of-the-bridezilla can't compare to Mac's own manipulative mom. Every time Mac talks to her she winds up drained - and so does her bank account.

What helps distract her is slightly-geeky, slightly-klutzy, but oh-so-cute English teacher Carter Maguire. Mac's enjoying the vibe with him - and has no intention of ruining it by making the same mistake her mother makes again and again: getting married. But as the women of Vows band together to score a major client, and Mac nears the breaking point with her mother, she begins to wonder if it's time to come out from behind the camera, and put herself in the picture.

    "Worst audio book I've ever listened to..."

    The story is so boring, I can't imagine anyone enjoying it. But worst than the writing, is the voice of the narrator, it is very irritating and mono toned. I have to advise anyone not to waste your money on this audio book....

    "Just not sure"

    I am having trouble listening to this book. No offense to Ms. Durante, the narrator, but her lisp can be distracting. I was sorry in the beginning I used my credit. I continued to listen as I did not want to waste my credit and eventually you get used to the lisp and become more involved in the characters. All in all, not Ms. Roberts' best effort. Just okay. I am not sure if it was the narrator or content.

    "I loved the narrator!"

    I love all of Nora's books but seeing some of the reviews for the narrator Emily Durante, I was hesitant. Well I loved her! She made the characters come alive and I could just "see" them as if they were in the room with me. Great job!

    Story
    "4 girls and a wedding business: success"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! I loved it! Most of my girlfriends are engaged or in serious relationships and a love story about close friends, a wedding business, and love? What more could we want?!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As much as I love Mackenzie, Laurel is definitely my favorite character. In terms of personality she is most like me.


    Have you listened to any of Emily Durante’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard any other Emily Durante performances.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! I could not get enough of it. I listened to it in the car so I didn't get to listen to it all in one sitting, but I would have loved to!

    "I didn't hear the lisp."

    I didn't hear the lisp other reviewers are talking about. The only complaint I have about the narrator is I wish she made more of a difference in the 4 main women characters. It was hard to tell who was speaking. Other than that though, I really enjoyed the narration. I'm glad I didn't let the negative reviews keep me from listening to this book. The story is classic Nora Roberts so it's excellent--of course. Really enjoyed this book & look forward to reading/listening the the rest of the serire.

    "Not bad"

    Good story. Nora Roberts does a great job of character development. The narrator has a very young voice that would be excellent for books other than romance. The narrator of the other two is better suited for this content.

    "Love the story, not the narrator"

    This series is my all time favorite. I have read it and listened to it multiple times, but this narration is lacking. It does not give the attitude and personality to the characters that Nora Roberts so carefully crafted. Still, I would recommend it for the fabulous story!

    "Love in Focus"
    What made the experience of listening to Vision in White the most enjoyable?

    I was very impressed with Emily Durante's performance. Her character voices were individual and lively and made the whole book a delight.


    What other book might you compare Vision in White to and why?

    Check out the rest of the Brides quartet. Nora Roberts does it again.


    What three words best describe Emily Durante’s performance?

    Warm, personal, engaging.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Sometimes it's hard to see what's right in front of you.

    "Narrator a career killer"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I was looking forward to another Nora Roberts Trilogy. This has got to be the worst narration ever. Grating monotone, emotionless... If this were the first Nora Roberts book I read it would have been the last. I hope the author reads this and never uses this narrator


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Story line was cute


    How could the performance have been better?

    get different narrator

    "Not bad, but one for the girls!"

    This isn't a bad story, although it dwells rather lovingly on the wedding design side of things, so if you're not interested in what makes a girl's wedding dreams come true, you might struggle (as I did!). It's essentially a straightforward love story, and while I did want to shake the heroine a couple of times, the hero is a star. It's also quite funny at times.
    I can't download this in the new Enhanced format (my ipod nano is too old) and the quality, at the highest I could get, was poor, bassy and slightly fuzzy. I got used to it, but these audio books aren't cheap, and should be easy to listen to.
    Anyhow, if you like a nice love story, with no nasty baddies or serious catastrophes strewn in the path of true lurve, then give this a go.

    "Disappointing"

    I have been an avid reader of Nora Roberts' books for many years. However I struggled to finish this one. I just didn't like her heroine and the hero, for me, didn't match up to her usual standard. Very disappointing.

    "Pleasant Romanticism"

    Written to the tried and tested Mills and Boons Style formula this is a contemporary romance about four friends who play weddings a children and grow up to run their own wedding planning company as adults. The characters were believeable. It might not be literature but it is reasonably well written and a highly enjoyable fun read. Wholesome reading for a pleasant escape.
