Vision In White by Nora Roberts

Wedding photographer Mackensie "Mac" Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be's encounter that has them both seeing stars. A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac's type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends-and business partners-to see her way to her own happy ending.

This is my first ever Nora Roberts book, I thought the series sounded fun (4 lifelong friends living and working together) and thought I'd pick up the first two and start reading to see what she was all about.

Right of the bat I got Mac, appreciated her love of photography and loved reading about how she worked. And Quinn, can you say my dream man!! I was really pulling for them to work as a couple! And what I really appreciated about this story was that there was more to it than just their romance, it was about their families and friends too. It's important to me to have those secondary plots.

I thought the book started to lag in the second half. I got a bit sick of Mac's uncertainly about her relationship with Quinn and all Quinn became good for was to reassure Mac that their relationship was worth a try. It really started to get repetitive and annoying. I did like seeing Mac stand up to her mother with the help of her friends though.

Overall I think this is a fun start to a new series and I can't wait to check out the rest!

  1. I've only read a few of Roberts' books because they're hit or miss for me. I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

  2. I liked this book as well. But I liked it more for the relationship between the four friends than the romance. I thought the latter took on a secondary role. I also found the mother and that situation to be taxing. I have the second book and am looking forward to reading it :)

  3. I just recently acquired this and I'm glad it's pretty good! It does always annoy me when a couple gets together towards the middle of a book and then has somewhat stupid relationship issues just to keep the plot going - that's where secondary storylines are handy, so it's good to hear this has some of that too.

  4. wow! you've read the book! read the second one, it's about emma :)
    i'm waiting for the 3rd book, about Laura and Del :)

  5. I've read Roberts's mysteries (which she writes as J.D. Robb) -- and I really like them.
