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.

    "Fave book in one of my fave NR series"

    My favorite book in the Bride Quartet, which is one of my favorite Nora Roberts series. 4 women who were childhood friends start a wedding business together. This is a character-driven lovely romance that has photographer Mackensie Elliott learning to overcome her commitment issues with Carter Maguire.
    Not that thrilled with the narration. The edge of shrillness in the female voice didn't work for me.

    Story
    "Super Cute!"
    Would you listen to Vision in White again? Why?

    I would, this is actually my first time listening to the series but I have read it before. It certainly worth your time if you like happy stories with great friendships.


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

    Well I would naturally compare the book to the others in the series, but there is another Roberts Series called the Irish Trilogy that meshes well with this one. Similar themes through strong friendships and old friends becoming lovers.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She was certainly not my favourite narrator. There was something about her voice that just took away from the story I remember and enjoyed reading. It wasn't awful though.

    "Good story, okay narration"

    Nora Robert's has done it again! The story line is great, and the world development is good. I can't wait for the next book.

    "Couldn't Make it Through This One"

    I'm a big Nora fan. That being said, I couldn't even finish this one because of the performer. I'm not sure why this person was chosen, but her voice grated on my ears. Wish I could get my money back.

    Story
    "Robot Narrator"
    Would you recommend Vision in White to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I can't get passed the terrible narration.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narration sounds like siri's older, uglier cousin. The words don't flow, they sound boxed as if the narrator is not reading or hearing the story but just pronouncing a succession of words.

    Story
    "I don't like the Narrator's voice."
    What made the experience of listening to Vision in White the most enjoyable?

    I've read the whole series before, but now the ability to listen in the car is really enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the relationship between the girls, and the way Nora Roberts describes the wedding cakes and flowers, and weaves in drama.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I won't buy any more books that she narrates; she reads well but her voice is the same for everybody and is kindof a teenager voice. I like the narrator of the other three books a lot more!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I'm only halfway

    Story
    "Endless Cliches"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story is incredibly inane. I understand the genre is not meant to be great literature, but the characters are so incredibly cliché and uninteresting. Imagine a young professional who pushes away an amazing man because she has a bad track record with men, and then she and all her girlfriends banter about it, using sexual innuendo that sounds like junior high boys.
    The relationship is propelled forward by the fallout from encounters with her narcissistic mother,
    That's the book.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    Unlikely


    What didn’t you like about Emily Durante’s performance?

    Feels hollow - even for hollow characters.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration - how does such a bad story get published????


    Any additional comments?

    I have read Nora Roberts in the past, and found some guilty pleasure in it. Maybe I've outgrown that, or maybe the writing is just that bad.
