Book Two in The Bride Quartet. This is Emma's (the florist) story of falling in love with Jack. She's grown up with parents living out a love story and won't settle for anything less than dancing in the moonlight. He's the product of divorce who never really thought about settling down. Wonderful characters from the series throughout and an amazing dream date (fancy dinner, night at the Waldorf, chilled champagne...), followed by heartbreak, followed by the happy ending.
This is the 2nd in the wedding series, and personally I liked it even better than the 1st.
The story surrounds chidlhood friends who used to play getting married. As adults they each have a different passion, and toghether they own a wedding planning business called "Vows". Book one took you into the inside story of photograpy for weddings, how the group works, and how relationships between friends, weddings, etc develop.
This book revolves around the person who designs the flowers. The reader actually feels like they are part of the organization, and of course love, romance, arguments, etc happen as well as humerous stories of some wedding nightmares and how some brides and their mothers conduct themselves.
Its a fairy tail story and fun, light reading with some tearful moments. Can't wait tillbook 3 comes out.
I enjoyed this one more than the first one in this series... even though the ending seemed a bit rushed. I also liked how the author hinted at the relationships in the upcoming two books... I can't wait to read the next one about Laurel. I enjoyed the descriptions of all the floral work in this novel.
Loved all these books. Think I'll keep the whole group for a time when I need a good pick-up book. They are fun and intertaining.
I love weddings, especially other people's. This whole series has been a happy, delightful experience.
Emma, the flower partner, has a fun story with Jack. The people are real (if maybe just too talented to be real), but I have fallen in love with all 4 couples. I have learned a lot about flower arranging and creativity while reading a wonderful series.
I cry at weddings. I cried when I read the 4th of the series. I just wish we could experience the other 3 weddings! Maybe Nora Roberts will give us one last extra Happy Ever After to cover weddings, even better if it ties in with baby showers.
I recommend this whole series to romantic readers who just like feel good, laugh and shed a tear stories. They're even better getting them from PBS. The paperbacks retail for $16. Worth it, too.
