Does anyone do romance any better than Nora Roberts? And, how can you miss with weddings and romance? Savor the Moment, the third book in the Bride Quartet is just as much fun as the previous books in this charming series.
Vows is a wedding and event business, run by four women who have been friends since childhood. Previous books focused on Mackenzie (Mac), the wedding photographer, and Emma, the florist. Now, it's Laurel McBane's turn in the spotlight. Laurel is the one who went to culinary school, and now bakes the gorgeous wedding cakes for the business. But, she went to school only with a loan from Mrs. Grady, the housekeeper for the Browns, the family who owned the house that became Vows when Parker Brown and her brother, Del, inherited it following their parents' death. And, despite her close friendship with Parker, Laurel still harbors feelings of inferiority because of her parents' reputation.
Laurel has also hidden her love for Del. He's been there for years, first as a childhood playmate, then as the steady lawyer for Vows. He's Parker's brother, and the one who views all four women as his sisters. He's protective, but will he ever see Laurel McBane as anything other than one of the group, one of his sisters?
Once again, Roberts brings us a fun romance featuring a group of enchanting, witty friends. Not very realistic, but who wants realism in a charming romance? Laurel and Del's romance brings together two people who've known each other for years. And, their challenge to try dating for thirty days provides betting material for all of their friends.
The final book in the Bride Quartet, Happy Ever After, will be out in November. It will be Parker Brown's romantic story. While anticipating that one, Savor the Moment of the latest treat from Nora Roberts.
