Book Overview

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents her first trade original--a novel of love, friendship, and family--in this beautiful french flap edition of Book One in the Bride Quartet.

Great Book

First of the series of four friends who have a wedding business called Veils. Really good book.

Typical Nora

Childhood friends, Emma, Laurel, Parker, and Mackensie operate a wedding planner company named Vows. Each has their own specialty: one creates beautiful wedding cakes, one arranges floral arrangements, one handles the books, and one is a photographer. Together they are able to unite people on their most joyous occasions. The first character we learn about is Mackensie. Mackensie is a renowned photographer and her works have been featured in some of the top magazines. Despite being an integral part of the wedding business, Mackensie, doesn't pursue a husband and doesn't see herself ever getting married. This lack of interest might be due, in part, to her mother, Linda. Linda has had numerous marriages and uses her daughter as a shoulder when things go wrong. All that changes with a chance meeting with Carter. Carter is the brother of a soon to be bride. Nora Roberts is a master at developing characters and it should be no surprise that Vision in White, follows the same formula. Her ability to blend emotions with the background settings is another of her amazing talents. The wedding business, Vows, almost feels like an additional character and the struggles each of the friends endure make this a novel not to be missed. It is fun, engaging, and flows like a gentle river.....I would also highly recommend JoAnna Wylde's novel: Price of Freedom --Price of Freedom my fav so far.

Good Beach Book

Loved "Vision in White". Low key, fun, interesting. No big drama and no murders, unlike "Black Hills". The book left me wanting more! Already preordered the next one...

Vision in White has a reminiscient feel in a good way.

Fans of Nora Roberts over time discovery certain formulas to the writing. This is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean we are all after a HEA or we would pick up another type of book. What I absolutely loved about this book is what one reviewer disliked. It takes us back to her earlier romance trilogies formula like the Dream Trilogy. Empowered, tight knit friends who support each other like family and who have drive and ambition in their careers and an immense sense of loyalty to one another. So what if there is the lawyer older brother that is most likely going to end up with one of his sisters friends in the end. And again so what if said sister pops Tums like another character out of the Dream Trilogy; that foreshadows she may not be as smooth and together as she appears. I was not sure if I could just enjoy a romantic novel anymore (without all of the complex eccentricities of the paranormal genre or the suspense and intrigue that so many romance novels have now--where the heroine is always in danger or a mystery to be solved). I literally found myself welling up with tears at some of the more poignant moments in this book. It touched me. It also left me very happy and dare I say hopeful. I am glad that Nora is revisiting this particular formula. I am surprised that the ratings are so all over the place. I am looking forward to books# 2, 3 and 4. This is a quartet after all not a trilogy. If you liked some of her earlier work, I think you will enjoy this as well.

A Winning Formula...

I am really surprised at the number of negative reviews for this book. I have been quite disappointed by Robert's last two series - I felt they were way too melodramatic and over the top ("We have to save the world from evil!!!!!"). I bought this on impulse because it was a Saturday and I was bored and I am really glad I spent the money. The characters in this book are likeable and funny. Yes, I know Nora Roberts writes with a formula and it can get tedious at times, but the formula worked here. The relationships and situations were realistic and convincing. No, there was not a lot of "drama" or some major crisis that created conflict - but the low key approach worked here. This is a book I will pass on.
