The first book in the Bride Quartet—following the lives and loves of four friends who run Vows, a wedding-planning company. Wedding photographer Mackensie “Mac” Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be’s brother…an encounter that has them both seeing stars.
A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac’s type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends—and business partners—to see her way to her own happy ending.
I picked this book because I needed some Nora in my life, dangit. I’ve been a huge fan of La Nora since I began reading romance in the early 1990s when she used to write for Silhouette. A few of those, namely Luring a Lady and Falling for Rachel, still hold a special place in my heart. I’ve read most of her single titles and enjoyed them all.
However, her contemporaries have always been my favorite. There are not enough words to describe how much I adore Born in Fire and Sea Swept.
Ms. Roberts writes across romance subgenres and it had been awhile since she wrote a straight contemporary. When I heard about The Bride Quartet, I nearly jumped for joy. I hadn’t read a Nora book in awhile, so I thought I’d treat myself this week.
I’ve always marveled at her style. She has such a lovely way with words and description that draws the reader in and paints a perfect picture. And the detail she puts in her books are amazing. These strengths hold true for Vision in White. I feel like an expert on wedding planning reading this book.
The best part of the book is the hero, Carter, who is adorably beta. He’s geeky, clumsy and sweet, but strong in such a quiet, effective way.
Is this my favorite Nora book? No, but I’m glad I’m reading it. As a reader, I find the book to be so comforting. It’s old school Nora. The storyline isn’t complicated, but that’s okay. As a writer, I’m taking copious mental notes on how she handles certain situations.
So whatcha reading? Are you enjoying it?
