Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts

Midafternoon found me wandering around my local library in search of something new to read.  I decided it needed to be fiction with romantic comedy tones, something I had never read before and a new author would be nice.

You would think I would walk away empty handed with a list like that. Because how do you pluck all of that out of thin air?

I don’t know – But, somehow I did!

I can now say that I have read my first Nora Roberts novel. Actually, I have read my first Nora Roberts series.  A new to me author, she is no newbie to the publishing world- she has more than one hundred books published! 

February being the month of love and all things romantic I picked out the title: Vision In White, book 1 in the Bride Quartet. I read this charming book over the course of a weekend. I then powered through the entire series in no time at all.

The Bride Quartet series tells the story of four childhood best friends. Growing up they would play “Wedding Day” over and over. This game develops individual talents in the four girls.
Entering adulthood they turn this “game” into a thriving Wedding Planning business called Vows. Each character uses their talents in a different aspect of the business.

Book 1 focuses on Mackensie ( Mac) Elliot the photographer
Book 2 is about Emma Grant the flower bouquet maker
Book 3 centers on Laurel McBane the cake maker
Book 4 tells about Parker Brown who is the business master mind.

But these books are not only about work!  Love does find each character in a special way even while running a business.  These stories all build on each other and the characters are well developed and entertaining.

I highly recommend these books for a weekend where light, romantic reading is just what you want.  The only downside to them is that you will want cake, and not ordinary cake, but a delicious three tiered kind of cake while reading!
