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.

This is the first Nora Robert's book I did not enjoy. I did not care for the narration and it was distracting from the story. Typically I have a hard time putting them down. This one I had to force myself to listen to all the way through.
This story was one of my favorites by Nora Roberts. Although the narrator did have a lisp, I thought she did an amazing job and I can certainly overlook and just appreciate the strength and fortitude of the narrator to pursue her passion in spite of a minor speech impediment.
Can't wait for the next one in this series!
As usual Nora Roberts has done it again. She has put together another great story with characters that you care about and identify with. I cannot wait for the next books in the series to come out. If you love books by Nora Roberts, you'll love this one too. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
This is Nora Roberts at her utmost best. The characters were AWESOME . . . I hated for the story to end. She pulled me into Mac and Carter's relationship so much that I wished I could be a lifetime spectator. I can only HOPE that this is one of her stories that is made into a movie . . . WOW! What a movie it would be and how it could pump up the reputations of all Professor's. I wished I could have one of my own (Sexy Professor)!!!!
Good book, but pretty much your run-of-the-mill standard romance. Nora usually gives you a solid story, and this is no exception. I look forward to the next installment.
Retired autoworker, and photographer! Started to listen to audio books, when I developed cataracts, and never stopped! Love the listen!
This is a very weak story with undeveloped characters. Time is valuable so, I did not waste my time trying to finish it!.
I loved these books so decided to buy the audio for work time, however this narrator feels sounds like she is reading from a sheet of paper instead of sounding natural. She needs some practice, not enough differentiation in the voices which are vast between the girls. Recommend, but not a great narrator.
