Easy read romance. Liked how the four friends created a business where each respects the abilities of the others. Enjoyed the tensions with her mother thinking only of her wishes, the reality of the bridal business to have to relate to unique whims, and the friend of Carter with his lists and ideas of male/ female interactions. Thought Carter's personality interesting in being somewhat reserved but yet fun and liked Mac as a person confident in her photo abilities yet doubting her emotional involvements. ( )

This isn't really a review, but, in a nod to timing, I wanted to alert anyone that still might have some Steve Kornacki thirst that the hero in this could help carry some of that weight. Dr. Maguire is a high school Lit teacher and a competent cinnamon roll.

The rest of the characters and story, meh, a lot of wedding talk with acronyms (ex. MOB-mother of bride) that ruined the smoothness of reading for me, I couldn't quite sink into the romance, and overall this just had some caustic chaotic energy.

I leave you with some favorite quotes:

The taste of her, the feel . That moment of lips and tongue, and the heat rising in the blood. In the quiet of snowfall, that elemental hush, the sound of her breath sighing out broke in his mind like thunder. A storm gathering.

#KorsnackiAlert
She stopped, threw her hands up again. “Grandfathers wear tweed. Old guys in old British movies wear tweed. Why do I find it sexy that he wears tweed? This is a question that haunts me.”

“Haven’t heard from Carter?”
“Why do you say that?”
“Because you’re going to buy shoes, which is comfort food for you. Have you called him?”
“To say what? I’m sorry? I already said that. I was wrong? I was, I know I was wrong, but it doesn’t change what I feel.”
“Which is?”
“Confused, afraid, stupid. Double all of that because I miss seeing him,” she admitted. “I miss talking to him. So I think it’s better if I don’t see him or talk to him.”
“Your logic doesn’t resemble the logic of humans.”

Vision in White is the first book in Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet. It's the story of lifelong friendships and new romance. Mackensie "Mac" Elliot is a seasoned photographer who owns a successful wedding-planning company with her three closest friends—Emma, Parker and Laurel.

Nora Roberts made friendship and the importance of true love a central theme in this book. I enjoyed seeing how Mac slowly learns to start trusting people despite her indifferent parents and the fact that her mother get her to pay for everything. I enjoyed the girl power relationship Mackenzie had with her three best friends. It struck me as authentic. Add some steamy love scenes to the mix, and you've got the perfect guilty pleasure after a long day. A fast and fun romantic read.

So I decided to re-read the Bride Quartet books over Christmas. I needed something to do and just figured I could bring the four books home along with finishing other books on my Kindle. I kind of forgot how downhill these books get from books #1 through #4. First of, I have read some really funny and sexy wedding planning books. This one ends up missing the mark, though the first part turned out to be pretty good.

Book #1 is about Mackensie "Mac" Elliot. She is a photographer getting to work alongside her three other best friends, Emma (does flower arrangements) Laurel (does the cooking/baking) and Parker (organizer galore and typical Type A). The four friends end up starting their own wedding business when Parker realizes she needs to do something to pay for the family home/estate after her parents are killed. Parker is an updated version of Laura Templeton from Finding the Dream (Dream Trilogy) series. I ended up realizing that Mac is a mixture of Margo and Kate from the Dream Trilogy. Though Margo and Kate's parents loved them, and Mac's mother is a pain in the butt.

Mac's love interest is Carter. They went to school together and Mac didn't notice him much. But now of course there are feelings and sex and all that. Honestly I was just bored by Carter. I swear Roberts writes these archetype heroes all the time. Carter is an academic (he's a teacher) which of course means that Mac is all well we totally have nothing in common. Of course Carter surprises her by being passionate. I just wish that I cared about either of them. I remember first reading this years ago, and Mac was my favorite out of the best friends. But now I ended up just feeling meh about her. There is nothing really going on besides Mac trying to ruin her relationship with Carter cause she's scared of it turning into something more cause of what happened with her parents messed up marriage.

I also really think this first book ended up drowning way too much in wedding details. I almost fell asleep. Plus the acronyms drove me up the wall. I didn't care about the MOB (Mother of the Bride) or anyone else that they kept short hand talking about. It made the text hard to read. I recall the first time I read this book I was totally in the dark about who they were all talking about.

I did have the nice paperback version of this book with the fancy paper and all, so I did get a kick out of it (the book) being made special for readers.

The best thing about these books is the four friends. I wish we had gotten more time with them as a group later in the series, but honestly, book #4 could seriously just be "Finding the Dream" with different names for people which was a disappointment.

The ending of course is a HEA, but that is to be expected and appreciated in romances. ( )

Wonderful romantic story. Almost old fashioned. the series gets a bit weak on the last book as the 3rd book does a intro of the character in the final book. The 1st 2 books are some of the best though. ( )

This is a wonderful and cozy read.

Roberts pulls off a nice switch in making the woman afraid of saying “I do,” and her gentle humor and likable cast will immediately endear this series to readers.

By the time she was eight, Mackensie Elliot had been married fourteen times. She'd married each of her three best friends-as both bride and groom- her best friend's brother (under his protest), two dogs, three cats and a rabbit.
