After a very busy & loooooong day at work, it was so nice to come home to see a box in front of my door & I knew exactly what was inside! Seven brand spanking new books for the bookshelf! YEAH! So, sue me…I’m a big nerd that gets excited when she gets new books!
I’ve already ready “Vision in White” that a friend lent me & it was so good I just had to get it, in addition to the three other books in the bride quartett series! Can’t wait to read these, especially after the first book was so good! Then, a co-worker suggested that I read “Duma Key” by Stephen King. I’ve never been a big reader of his books, but she swears that it’s the best one out of all of the ones he’s written, so I hope it’s as good as she says! Then “The Pioneer Woman” is just a city girl meets cowboy true love story, so had to get that one! And last, but not least, “Sh*t My Dad Says”…..hey, everyone needs a good laugh every now and then!
Now, I’ve already written up a book review on “Vision in White” on my prior blog, but I will go ahead and post it hear too, just so you can get a snip-it of the book! It was never a book I would have picked up myself, but a friend read it & kept hounding me to read it when she brought it for me to borrow. But I was totally in love with the book once I made myself sit down and get into the book. Okay, so on with the review!
To make it short & sweet, I loved “Vision in White” by Nora Roberts. The book, the first one in the series of the bride quartet set, is full of love and friendship, which makes me laugh and smile and is just an enjoyable read.
“Vision in White” introduces Mackensie, Parker, Laurel and Emmaline. The four woman have been best friends since they were little girls and they spent many days in their childhood playing getting married. From just playing “Wedding Day” as kids they went on to planning weddings and now run a successful wedding planning business, which they named, Vows. Isn’t that the cutest! Mackensie, a photographer, loves her job and especially making someone else’s wedding day and the pictures of it just perfect. But she doesn’t believe in a happily ever after for herself because of an absent father and a selfish and unstable mother, which made her wary of marriage and longterm relationships. When she meets nerdy, cute (with a capital C), intelligent and charming Carter Maguire she is shocked that she starts thinking of a future that includes him. Carter is a great hero, he is smart but also easily flustered and still sure of what he wants in life. Their meeting scene is just hilarious and even though Mackensie is afraid to enter a serious relationship she cannot stop getting more and more involved with Carter. But Mac’s doubts and her ongoing struggle to handle her selfish mother are making her afraid to trust in her love for Carter. But thank god Carter is also strong-willed and not ready to let go of the one woman that completes his life and for whom he had a teenage crush 13 years ago (so sweet when he tells her about it). “Vision in White” is a beautiful book. I love the wedding theme, heroine and hero are adorable and their relationship is sweet and sexy at the same time. The friendship of the four woman just warms my heart and their scenes together are so touching. Parker’s brother Del and his buddy Jack are also great guys and all in all this book wants me to believe that somewhere out there my own Carter is waiting for me (if he would only came out of hiding!!!). I can’t wait to read book two in the series “A Bed of Roses”, to see how Emma finds the one man she wants to share her life with (an excerpt is included in “Vision in White”).
All fans of romances and strong characters will love this book. I’d highly recommend it, as it just puts a smile on your face the whole time you’re reading it!
