Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts

Bed of RosesBed of Roses (Book 2 in the Bride Quartet)

Once upon a time, friends Mac, Laurel, Parker and Emma (the Quartet) loved playing Wedding Day, and now, as adults, the four friends have turned their childhood game into a lucrative wedding planning business but, more than that, they get to work together doing the things each of them love.

For Emma Grant it was always about the flowers, she loves playing with them and creating magical bouquets and decorations for each bride, bringing life and color to everything around her. Always the romantic - and with parents that are still together and have a really romantic love story of their own - she can't help to long for the love that lasts forever.

Jack Cooke is no strange to the Quartet, since he has been friends with Parker's older brother Del for over a dozen years, he has always been aware of the girls as if he also were an older brother until he realized not ALL of the Quartet's members are like sisters to him. The problem is that he's not really into commitment and he knows that Emma is the type of woman you commit to. Still, as they decide to take their attraction, run with it and see where it takes them they can never know where they'll and.

I loved this book so much. I really liked Vision in White but I think that in Bed of Roses the series has hit it's stride. Emma and Jack - and Del, Parker, Lauren, Mac and Carter - feel like real people and I was rooting for them all the way. The romance is down to earth but magical at the same time.

And, the relationship between the Quartet is one of the best parts of the books, these are the type of women you wish to have as friends, no one is perfect but they are smart and accomplished and love each other so much. Plus, their scenes together are just a delight to read.

Also, can't wait for the next book in the series Savor the Moment, coming out April 27th.

  1. I've never read Looking for Alibrandi so I'm not sure. I've only read Saving Francesca by her so... so I need to read her other novels xD

    Oooh, I didn't know Nora Roberts was the author of this book. I haven't read anything by her either but my friend LOVES her books. Must read this as well. ;)
