Publisher's Summary

Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it's really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist at Vows. She gets to play with flowers every day and work with her three best friends in the process. She couldn't ask for a better job....

And on the surface, Emma's love life seems to be thriving. Slim and sultry, she brings color into every room she enters, just like the arrangements she creates. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn't found Mr. Right. And the last place she's looking is right under her nose.

But that's just where Jack Cooke is. He's so close to the women of Vows that he's practically family. But the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. And when Emma returns his passion - kiss for blistering kiss - things start to get complicated at Vows.

Jack has never been big on commitment, though, while Emma yearns for a lifelong love affair. If the two are to find common ground, they must trust in their history - and in their hearts.

Very Sweet!

This book is pure romance. If you are looking for a little suspense or danger with your romance this is not the book for you. But if you like sweet romantic love stories get this book. This is the second book in the series and I have enjoyed both...can't wait until the third book comes out!

Bed of Roses

I found this book to be fantastic. I was actually very impressed with the narrator. She had a great voice, and really pulled off the emotional parts beautifully. I always love Nora's books, but I do not always enjoy the audio versions. For me this narrator made this book better.

Lovely, romantic, captivating story

The narrator is excellent, easy to listen to. The story of 4 women is so easy to relate to. I was so drawn into this story. Highly recommended!

4 girls and a wedding business: Part 2

Where does Bed of Roses rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was actually one of my first audiobooks and it still ranks high among the books I've listened to so far.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the commraderie among the women in the story and how their social group formed. In each story we learn a little more about them and how they came to be where they are. I think that the history we share with our closest friends shapes who we are and that comes out in this story.

What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

She does really great voices and it's like watching a movie with her performances.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book is full of moments that made me laugh, cry, and hit things in frustration. Can't ask for more than that.

Two Thumbs Up for Bed of Roses!

Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts and narrated by Angela Dawe gets a TWO THUMBS UP! This is a precious story about friendship, family, and the love they all experience and share. This was entirely credit worthy...a must read, especially if you are in the mood to get to know some adorable characters who live, love, laugh and "make" happiness!

feel good romance

I love this series from Nora Roberts. The Bride Quartet is the first books I have read by Nora Roberts and I am getting very attached to the characters. This series is a light easy romantic read. It is not action packed or mysterious but just an all around good love story. I thought I would be bored with these books but I am finding them hard to put down, not because they are nail biting can't wait to turn the next page but because the characters are so well written and you feel like you know them. This is the second book in the series and it focuses on Emma (the florist of the wedding business). It seems each book is going to focus on one friend out of the four friends that opened a wedding business together. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series and will probably go crazy waiting for November to read the last of the four books. If you are looking for a feel good romance then try out these books.

Romance at it's finest!

This book is funny and sweet and touching and everything you want in a Nora Roberts novel. I liked it even better than the first book of the series, and I liked that one a lot. Can't wait for the next one!

Fluff and stuff

It feels like the book was just a filler to make Her Quartet a reality

Angela Dawe Saved This Series!!!

Bed of Roses was much better. Thank God they changed the narrator! Angela Dawe did a phenomenal job! They story line was much better and the main characters were way more engaging. There was more insight into Emma and Jack, the emotions are stronger, and the dialogue is so much better. Now, I’m actually excited to read the rest of the series.

Beautiful story, melts the heart

Nora Roberts has been a favourite author of mine for over 10 years, and she doesn't let down with the bride quartet series. Heart warming storyline, lovely speaking style from the narrator.

Love this series

Some of Nora Roberts best work. This series is so sweet. And the detail she puts in regarding flowers, running a wedding business plus knowledge about cakes, pastry work or photography is amazing. I imagine she did A LOT of research. I listen often to this series for a calm heartwarming lift, never fails to cheer me up. This book is like sinking into a glorious bubble bath scattered with rose petals and a glass of champagne at the end of a hard week. Give this series a go, let yourself be seduced.

A romantic saga.

Very enjoyable, even though you can guess the ending , you can't stop listening to find out how they made the journey.
