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.

    "Excellent Intro to the Brides Quartet"

    This is an enjoyable story and it leaves you wanting to read all the others. I did not buy these books in order, I have read 2 & 3, thoroughly enjoyed them both. So far Bed of Roses is my Favorite. I liked this narrator on other books but I don't think she was a good fit for this story. Nevertheless it is worth the purchase. I look forward to the 4th in the series.

    "Vision in White: The Bride Quartet, Book 1"

    The narrator killed it for me too. I couldn't get past her lisp! It was incredibly distracting.

    "Not so great"

    Pretty lame and predictable. I'm a fan of NR, but this one, not so much.

    "I love the characters!"

    Funny, sexy AND believable. I've read the first two books in this series, Vision in White & Bed of Roses, and I can't wait to start on the third!

    "Good Story - Give the Narrator a Chance"

    When I first started this book I did not think I would like the narrator. She was not as involved with the different voices as the other narrators I have been listening to lately but I am glad that I gave the book and narrator a chance. I promised I would at least listen to an hour of the book and after that hour I actually started to like the narrator. The book is about four best friends who open a wedding business. One is a photographer, one is the baker, one does the decorations, and one the planning and organizing. There are four books in this series two are out now and the third comes out in April 2010. Each book is about the business and friends as a whole but focuses on one individual at a time. The first is about the photographer, the second I think about the decorator, the third the baker, and the forth (my guess) the organizer. The people in the story are well written and all seem like real people. I recommend this book and ask that you give the narrator some time before turning off the book because she kind of grows on you after a while.

    If I follow you, it's because I've glanced through your reviews and more than likely found books I've agreed with you on and also found at least one book that the majority loved, and you and I were less than thrilled with. I know I should follow you then for that next read that I will enjoy.

    "Narrator makes characters seem wimpy/whiny"

    I like Nora Roberts books. They are usually an easy, it will keep me entertained, good enough book. But I usually don't enjoy a series I have read for a while and then listen to because it doesn't mesh with how I perceived the characters to be portrayed. New series, I thought probably okay. I like Dick Hill, a lot of people greatly dislike his narration.

    The narrator's voice is fine for just the intonation, speaks clearly, but the portrayal makes the characters seem weak, whiny. Didn't care for her "male" voice. I listened to this book in the middle of listening to another book, when I got fed up with one, I'd switch back.

    I might have enjoyed the book if I'd read it and not listened because I probably would have perceived the characters differently in my mind.

    If you are an adult female, though, and have probelms with your mother, you could learn something from it.

    "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!

    "Typical Nora"

    I truly enjoyed this book, once I got past the reader's
    slight speech impediment. I just wish Nora would
    just hint at sex and pass up on the details, although some of her books are much worse.

    "Disappointing"

    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.
