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.

Mediocre story coupled with poor narration

Honestly, I can't tell if it was the narrators voice and performance that made the story just "okay" or if the story was truly just "okay". The characters frustrated me to no end and the overall story fell a little flat. The idea of the business and the friendships are what kept me going, and the final confrontation between two characters at the end was very satisfying.

However I knew if the same narrator was performing the next book I wouldn't be able to continue. I feel bad for saying it but it was just unpleasant.

Finished and I'll wear that badge proudly. The narrator of book 2 sounds much better so hoping for better experience.

Preview the book before committing. Maybe read the first copy and then listen to the next.

Great book in a great series, worst narration ever

I enjoyed the book and couldn't make it past chapter one, it must have been the narrator first book. I really wanted to enjoy it, the other book in the series are narrated by others. I returned this.

It sounds like a book for teenagers not adults.

A fine beginning

I loved this book as it was a step above the usual romance novel. Witty dialogue & lovable characters plus clever writing make for a very enjoyable experience.

Relaxing and intriguing

I'm so glad I listened to this book. It was just what I needed to think about: away from home!

Vision in White

First in the Bride Quartet. Can't wait to follow the ladies through their lives and see what happens.
