Sinossi

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts cordially invites you to meet childhood friends Parker, Emma, Laurel, and Mac—the founders of Vows, one of Connecticut’s premier wedding planning companies.



With bridal magazine covers to her credit, Mackensie “Mac” Elliot is most at home behind the camera—ready to capture the happy moments she never experienced while growing up. Her father replaced his first family with a second, and now her mother, moving on to yet another man, begs Mac for attention and money. Mac’s foundation is jostled again moments before an important planning meeting when she bumps into the bride-to-be’s brother…an encounter that has them both seeing stars.



Carter Maguire is definitely not her type: he’s stable, and he’s safe. He’s even an English teacher at their high school alma mater. There’s something about him that makes Mac think a casual fling is just what she needs to take her mind off dealing with bridezillas and screening her mother’s phone calls. But a casual fling can turn into something more when you least expect it. And with the help of her three best friends—and business partners—Mac must learn how to make her own happy memories…

5.0 su 5 stelle Typical Nora 5 settembre 2009
Di N. Harvard - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Formato Kindle
Childhood friends, Emma, Laurel, Parker, and Mackensie operate a wedding planner company named Vows. Each has their own specialty: one creates beautiful wedding cakes, one arranges floral arrangements, one handles the books, and one is a photographer. Together they are able to unite people on their most joyous occasions. The first character we learn about is Mackensie. Mackensie is a renowned photographer and her works have been featured in some of the top magazines. Despite being an integral part of the wedding business, Mackensie, doesn't pursue a husband and doesn't see herself ever getting married. This lack of interest might be due, in part, to her mother, Linda. Linda has had numerous marriages and uses her daughter as a shoulder when things go wrong. All that changes with a chance meeting with Carter. Carter is the brother of a soon to be bride. Nora Roberts is a master at developing characters and it should be no surprise that Vision in White, follows the same formula. Her ability to blend emotions with the background settings is another of her amazing talents. The wedding business, Vows, almost feels like an additional character and the struggles each of the friends endure make this a novel not to be missed. It is fun, engaging, and flows like a gentle river.....I would also highly recommend JoAnna Wylde's novel: Price of Freedom --Price of Freedom my fav so far.

5.0 su 5 stelle Vision in White has a reminiscient feel in a good way. 25 maggio 2009
Di Tina E. Arnold - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
Fans of Nora Roberts over time discovery certain formulas to the writing. This is not necessarily a bad thing. I mean we are all after a HEA or we would pick up another type of book. What I absolutely loved about this book is what one reviewer disliked. It takes us back to her earlier romance trilogies formula like the Dream Trilogy. Empowered, tight knit friends who support each other like family and who have drive and ambition in their careers and an immense sense of loyalty to one another. So what if there is the lawyer older brother that is most likely going to end up with one of his sisters friends in the end. And again so what if said sister pops Tums like another character out of the Dream Trilogy; that foreshadows she may not be as smooth and together as she appears. I was not sure if I could just enjoy a romantic novel anymore (without all of the complex eccentricities of the paranormal genre or the suspense and intrigue that so many romance novels have now--where the heroine is always in danger or a mystery to be solved). I literally found myself welling up with tears at some of the more poignant moments in this book. It touched me. It also left me very happy and dare I say hopeful. I am glad that Nora is revisiting this particular formula. I am surprised that the ratings are so all over the place. I am looking forward to books# 2, 3 and 4. This is a quartet after all not a trilogy. If you liked some of her earlier work, I think you will enjoy this as well.

5.0 su 5 stelle A beautiful book about weddings, friendship and love 28 aprile 2009
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
To make it short I love "Vision in White" by Nora Roberts. The book, the first one in the bride quartet, is full of love and friendship, makes me laugh and smile and is just beautiful to 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 they went to planning weddings and now run a successful wedding planer business.
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 an absent father and an egoistic and unstable mother 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. Parkers 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 only came out of hiding!!!).
I can't wait to read book two in the series "A bed of roses" coming in December to see how Emma finds the one man she wants to share her life with (an excerpt is included in "Vision in White").
All friends of romances and strong characters will love this book and last but not least I want to thank Nora Roberts for "Vision in White" and that she still continues to amaze me with her beautiful books.

3.0 su 5 stelle A vision that doesn't gel 26 maggio 2009
Di Deborah Verlen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Like many long time Nora Roberts fans I really really wanted to love this book. Didn't happen.

The premise is an interesting one. Four friends live together in a large mansion that houses their business Vows which is a wedding planning company. Each friend serves a vital function in the company. In the first book Mackensie (Mac)the photographer is introduced. She falls for a nerdy professor who is the brother of one of the brides.
The book falls way short in almost all areas--romance, originality, plot and characters.

The characters were not that interesting nor was the plot. No tension, no reason to want to keep reading to see what was going to happen to Mac and Parker.

Lately it seems as though Ms. Roberts recycles her trilogy characters. There seems to be a strong one, artistic one, organized one, nerdy one etc. If you compare Vision in White to The Calhouns: Lilah and Professor Quartermain or the Three Sisters--Ripley and Mac or Black Rose--Rosalind and Mitch; these were books with a nerdy type male paired with a strong female (or a floaty one in Lilah's case). You cared about what happened to the couples because the plot was interesting, the characters were well fleshed out and there was a chemistry between them which satisfied the romantic component. In Vision in White, Mac and Parker never seem to gel so you don't really care if they fall in love.

I think Vision in White had great potential; unfortunately it fell short of the expectation of a good romantic read. I was also bothered by Ms. Roberts using some of her favorite phrases over and over. Love is like "A punch to the belly" (paraphrased) is one of her favorite ones. It might be time for her to reread her last 15 books or so and freshen up some of the language or phrases she uses over and over since many of her readers revisit her books over and over!

Inspite of this lukewarm review, I'm still looking forward to the other three books in the quartet. Basically I'm hoping Nora starts weaving some of her old magic with romance and character depth in the next three.

4.0 su 5 stelle Vision in White by Nora Roberts 29 aprile 2009

Contemporary romance fans, rejoice! Nora Roberts latest release "Vision in White" is a light and fun read that leaves you with a big grin on your face. It's the first in a four-book series about a group of women who've been friends since childhood and grow up to run a bridal business together. The manager, the baker, the flower lady, and the photographer--each with different backgrounds and different outlooks on life and love. This first story is about the photographer, Mackensie.

Mac's home life taught her a lot about love and weddings--mainly that neither were permanent or could be counted on. With the exception of her childhood girlfriends, Mac's never really known much stability in her life. So when she meets the 'Mary Poppins' (i.e., perfect) man, one who makes her feel special and cared for and important--she freaks out...majorly.

Carter had a crush on Mackensie back in school. And now that he's a man...well, he still has a crush on her! But it seems that every time he makes headway in their relationship, Mac gets scared and backs off. Good thing Carter is a patient man.

Carter is my new best ever Gamma hero. He's a professor and quite the nerd, but he's also sweet, protective, and even a bit clumsy. The more you read about him, the more you just want to take him home with you...and then do unspeakably fun things with him (with or without the glasses)! And Mac? Well, she has some pretty serious issues to deal with and her self-worth is right there at the top of the list. She's stubborn, but she does grow on you and pretty soon I was cheering every forward step she made.

Nora Roberts is a genius writer. She somehow taps into the subconscious of women (and men) everywhere. Her books have a happy ending yes, but her characters also have to work for that happy ending. She does her trademark work and brings her cast of characters to life with such vividness that I felt if I just went to their city, I would recognize these people, want to spend time with them, commiserate with them, and celebrate with them. For me, that's the brilliance of La Roberts' stories.

"Vision in White" isn't a melodramatic, emotion-wrenching read. Instead, it reminds me very much of some of her earlier works, the ones that are just darn good romances. No special gimmicks, no mysteries, no death or destruction--just two people living their lives and then discovering that love does exist and it's worth the work to cherish it. Pure romance.
