Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bridal expert Parker "Legs" Brown meets her perfect match in Roberts's delicious ode to weddings and happy endings, the charming conclusion of the Bride Quartet (after Savor the Moment) about four childhood friends who as adults form a Connecticut wedding planning company. In the palatial Brown estate, a multitude of marriages have been celebrated while each wedding planner in turn has found her heart's desire. Cupid's target for Parker is her brother Del's friend Malcolm Kavanaugh, a former stuntman turned mechanic. Harley-riding Mal is a rough-and-tumble hunk who captures Parker's heart with twinkling eyes and steamy moves that melt her cool reserve. Romance veteran Roberts fills the pages with frothy fun, culminating in--of course--plenty of bridal fabulousness. (Nov.) (c)

From Booklist

As wedding planner for Vows, Parker Brown manages to make every wedding the perfect day for her clients. From demanding brides to feuding guests to last-minute menu changes, Parker can handle anything and anyone with aplomb. Nothing and no one rattles her, until Malcomb Kavanaugh unexpectedly kisses her one day after helping her fix a flat tire. At first, Parker dismisses the kiss as just another twist to Malcomb’s always flirtatious nature, but as it turns out, the sexy auto mechanic really is interested in starting something with Parker. Somehow, though, the whole idea of a serious romantic relationship with Malcomb is enough to rattle her. Roberts, the reigning Queen of Romance, brings her Bride Quartet series to a splendidly satisfying conclusion with another deliciously sexy and delightfully humorous contemporary romance that perfectly celebrates the importance of love, friendship, and family in any woman’s life. --John Charles

I had just finished reading the 3rd book and realized it was the 3rd of 4.
I read for fun and she had me laughing, crying and smiling while reading the book.
I love this story and have really enjoyed getting to know all the characters.

When I sat down to write this review, I spent time thinking about not only how I felt about this book but also tried to imagine how some other readers with different tastes might feel. Eventually it became clear to me that we are very likely to see two different types of reviews here, so I'll try to give them both. Pick one depending upon what type of reader you are.

Type 1 - Style fit for a fairytale and no holds barred romance. Sigh.
If you are an adoring fan of the first three novels in this series and have spent the past month staring at that 4th gorgeous bride cover and waiting, waiting, waiting for that day when Parker Brown puts down her Blackberry and lets the man of her dreams sweep her off her well pedicured Manolo Blahnik encased feet, then wait no longer because your day has come. Like a certain Disney movie, Princess Parker Brown (of the Connecticut Browns) finds herself a true diamond in the rough in Malcom. Underneath all that tiny little insignificant bit of grease and dust Malcolm might collect during the day is a man who is nice to his mom, cares about the literacy levels of his employees, and most importantly of all --- knows nothing says sorry like a new pair of high end designer shoes.

For you - Five Stars. Make that Six. Go buy the book and read it because you are gonna love it!!!!!

Type II - Enough Already! Do people really live like this? Bedroom closets with refrigerators?

I have a tradition, a completely girly and irrational tradition that I love and hope to continue for many years. On the day that a new Nora Roberts book comes out, I purchase it at my local bookstore, crack open a bottle of red wine, and read it cover-to-cover. I give myself permission to drink the WHOLE bottle of wine, cry freely at the over-the-top romantic parts, and disregard any work/social functions to stay up to the wee hours to make sure that the leading man and woman end up Happy Ever After!

Happy Ever After is the final member of the Bride Quartet: Parker Brown. Parker created Vows - a premier wedding business in the ultra-rich Greenwich - for her and her three best friends and continued to make their dream a reality by being the glue that held everything together. Efficient, supreme multi-tasker, level-headed, and organized beyond belief, Parker never saw herself falling for her mechanic, Mal Kavanaugh. But, as Mal proves to be much more than he appears on the surface, Parker finds that he may just be everything she has ever wanted but never planned for.

I am capable of understanding books with complex themes and subtexts and then dissect and discuss them on an intellectual level...I even enjoy books such as that on a fairly regular basis. However, my favorite genre of all time is contemporary romance (heavy on the contemporary, medium on the romance) and Nora Roberts is a goddess in my world. I realize NR novels are unrealistic, contrived, and fit a cookie-cutter mold....and I could care less. They are my guilty pleasure and I love every single word on every single page! :)

Let the countdown begin to July 7, 2011, when the next Nora Roberts novel is released!

I liked the first 3 books and was hoping for a wonderful ending to this romance saga. With characters like Parker and Malcolm there was so much potential for drama and interesting dialogue. Should have been more passion and more intimate moments between Parker & Malcolm, get rid of the wedding details and other relatives - these become boring after a while and I skipped many of these pages on my Kindle. On the whole the book was OK but I waited all year for this book and it fell short for me - maybe my expectations were too high.

I am a big Nora Roberts fan. I've read many of her books, including her final book in the bridal quartet: Vision in White. I loved the first, liked the second, got through the third, and almost didn't even finish the fourth book in this series. They were all too similar: Strong, independent business woman isn't looking for a relationship when a gorgeous man falls in her lap. They fall quick, have a huge fight where they almost break up, they get back together and get engaged right after the man apologizes. I feel like a lot of her books have the same general plot: the strong woman fights falling in love and then they live happily ever after once she realizes she can't live without him. It's getting too sappy and fairy tale like. WAY TOO PREDICTABLE!!

I've read all four books in the series now, and they have been getting progressively worse. What started out as mildly annoying flaws in Book 1 (the obnoxious way that the four women use stupid abbreviations for all of the people associated with their weddings ALL THE TIME is a start--they are like Rachael Ray with her EVOO) have escalated into actually wanting to punch my E-reader when I see a single sentence that contains the acronyms FOB, FOG, SMOG, and MOH all at once!! (OMGWTF). And all the perfection makes me want to hurl a little. Every character in these books is the most beautiful, most talented, most handsome, most special, most awesome person ever, and all these weddings are the most fantastic, most gorgeous, most flawless events everrrr. And the details...oy. There is no room for much character development because we are too busy learning about every detail of the bouquets, of the dresses, of these customers who are not central to the story. Oh, and the workout routines of the women. Seriously. I realize that these are romance novels, which are primarily an idealized fantasy, but come on. Can't we have one character with an overbite or something?

In addition to the stories being redundant and annoying, this particular book is terrible because Parker is the worst character in the series and I kept hoping she'd fall off Mal's (ugh, terrible name for a hero) motorcycle and die. Everyone in the book talks about how she's so perfect and awesome--I guess to try to convince us of that--when she is really an overbearing control freak with no personality. For example, her three best friends are all marrying (how convenient) and Parker goes out and picks out their wedding dresses for them.
