Dreams are realized in the eagerly-awaited fourth novel in Nora Roberts’s Bride Quartet.
As the public face of Vows wedding planning company, Parker Brown has an uncanny knack for fulfilling every bride’s vision. She just can’t see where her own life is headed. Mechanic Malcomb Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker is no exception. Both know that moving from minor flirtation to major hook-up is a serious step. Parker’s business risks have always paid off, but now she’ll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart…

My take:

I was hoping that I would enjoy this book as much as I enjoyed the first 3 in this series.  I am happy to say that I think that I enjoyed this book even more than the first three.  I love the charter development that continues through each of these books.  Parker was calm and collected through the first three books while we got to know her and how dedicated she is to her friends, who she considers her family, we never really saw the soft side of her.  I was pleased to find that she was not as collected as we all thought.  Mal has been the same bold character thought since we were introduced to him.  I love that we get to know Mal’s mother and the history between her and Mrs. G.  I love that we get to continue to explore the other three brides to be while getting the real focus on how Mal and Parker move into their relationship.  I think my favorite part of this story is how Mrs, G finds Parker’s mother’s wedding dress out for her at the end of this book.  All in all, I wish there was a follow up series about these weddings and how they go off.  I love reading Nora Roberts she just has a way of telling a story.

For me this was a 5 star book.

Indulgence in Death (In Death Series #31) by J. D. Robb: Book Cover
