Vision in White
Bride Quartet bk 1
Nora cordially invites readers to meet childhood friends Parker, Emma, Laurel, and Mac–founders of Vows, one of Connecticut’s premier wedding planning companies
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.
REVIEW: For those that love Nora this is classic Nora, picture a cross between the McCades and the boys of Chesapeake Bay and that is what you get with this series.
Mac is the photographer that I wish that I had at my wedding. Not that my photographer wasn’t good, he was great, but he wasn’t a wedding photographer. Mac has the unique ability to see into the heart of the couple that she is taking pictures of.
Mac however does have a huge problem in that she has serious commitment issues, all stemming from her parents. However her mom is her main problem. Talk about self absorbed people, you don’t get more self absorbed than Mac’s mom Linda.
The first time that we get to meet Carter is a doozy. From the minute that he is introduced and the more we get to know him, the more and more that you have to love him, at least I do.
He is the quintessential hot/nerdy literature professor that we all wished that we had as teenagers, or college freshmen. He loves the subject of literature and watching the switch hit with his students. (I do have to say that as a language and literature teacher I was really really digging on him).
Carter comes from a completely different background than Mac, his parents have been together for almost 40 years, his older sister is married, and his younger sister is using Mac and her friends to plan her wedding. However he gets Mac. Not only who she is, but why she is.
I loved the dynamics between these two, there was so much past history between then. When they have their first kiss, it is one of those that makes you smile and *sigh* then fan your face.
So I am not going to say anymore about this book other than I really wish that December wasn’t so far away as I really can’t wait to read the next book Bed of Roses, Emma’s story. Then it is Savor the Moment and book 4 hasn’t been released yet.
I give this book a 5 out of 5.
