Book Description

#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 the support of her friends, Laurel McBane’s dream of attending culinary school came true. Now, she’s repaying their kindness by creating extravagantly luscious tiers of cakes and other confectionary delights that add the perfect touch to their clients’ weddings.



As for romance, the low-key Laurel has had a mega crush on Parker’s older brother, Delaney Brown, since childhood. But she’s convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. When Laurel’s quicksilver moods get the better of her—leading to an angry, hot, altogether mind-blowing kiss with Del—she’ll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever…
 






Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Happily-ever-afters continue to bloom in book three of Roberts's sugary Bride Quartet (after Bed of Roses) as the spotlight shines on pastry chef extraordinaire Laurel McBane. Vows, the Greenwich, Conn., wedding business run by the four BFFs, is also a hotbed for romance, as two of the friends have already found true love and dream of their upcoming nuptials. Laurel, meanwhile, sets her sights on Del, the older brother of Vows partner Parker, a handsome lawyer she's secretly loved since they were teens. Passion erupts, but will they be able to make it last? Laurel's tart fairy tale romance offers few surprises, but it's impossible to deny Roberts's flair for sketching likable couples. (May)

Review

“No one writes relationships as well as Ms. Roberts, with the subtleties and quirkiness of the give and take of friendship and romance.”


“It’s the ultimate feel-good wish-fulfillment fantasy, and Nora Roberts is a true pro at delivering on those.”


“It’s impossible to deny Roberts’s flair for sketching likable couples.”


“Charming…delightful.”


“This is the romance and grandeur of love that Roberts’s fans have come to expect.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful, light-hearted and happy love story April 27, 2010
Format:Paperback
The third book in the Bride Quartet is a beautiful, light-hearted and happy novel about love and friendship.

Laurel and Del have known each other since they were children. Laurel is like a sister for Del, but for her he is the one man she has secretly loved for years.
A heated discussion and a suprising kiss changes everything. They move on to a romantic relationship. Laurel is happy that Del and she are finally more than good friends, but also fears that she will never be the one for him. Del on the other hand is suprised by his feelings for Laurel, nevertheless he is willing to do everything to give them a real chance for a happy end.

I enjoyed reading "Savor the Moment" a lot. Laurel and Del are a great pair and I loved reading about them and the rest of the characters. There is no real drama going on and that's something I appreciate a lot. The story concentrates solely on the characters and the love affair and that's just great.
No development in the book is rushed and Laurel and Del (and the others) have time to get used to the new direction of their relationship. Some may find this boring but I love to get the chance to form a bond with the characters and to understand their personalities.
It was also a joy to learn more about the other main characters in the series. They made me a laugh a lot and especially Mrs. G was heart-warming.

I'm already excited for the final book in the series and to read how Parker and Mal get their "Happy Ever After". Mal fits perfectly in the circle of friends and he seems to be the one man that can help Parker to relax and even forget about her BlackBerry.
I love that Nora Roberts is a stickler for details and that she makes her characters three-dimensional. And that's why in the end I want to thank her for writing yet another book to fall in love with.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Easy Read May 11, 2010
Format:Paperback
First I want to go ahead and let it be known that my review rating is based on having actually purchased and read the book itself. I have read all three of the books in this series to date and have to say that Laurel's was lacking for me compared to Emma's and Mac's stories. This book did not have the same dialogue that really drew me in on the others. It seemed more cookie cutter - long time love finally realized. I would have liked to have seen more about Del and Laurel getting past having always known each other. I did enjoy though the book as an easy read and will definitely read Parker's story when it comes out. I am really looking forward to hers as she is my favorite of the characters.

As a final note, I really wish any reviews based on the unavailability of this book on the Kindle would be eliminated. Since they are not reviews of the actual book that add anything helpful to readers other than format availability, they serve no purpose other than to bring the overall rating down. Complaints about available formats should be addressed to the publishers and copyright holders that make the determination about format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for Parker's story !!! April 28, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Received this in the mail today and finished within hours after catching myself smiling several times. :) I can not wait until the last book... November can not come soon enough. I love the relationship these four women share. I was never a huge Nora Roberts fan but with this series I have to admit I am hooked. Can't wait till the next one "Happy Ever After"

As a side note I would ignore the one star ratings as the majority do not pertain to the novel itself but instead to an issue with Kindle :)

~Happy Reading :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds expectations! April 28, 2010
Format:Paperback
I liked this book best in the series, although the first story (Mac & Carter's) comes a very very close second. Can't wait for Parker's story and Nora Roberts has done a good job in whetting my appetite to find out more about Mal & Parker. Awesome read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! April 27, 2010
By W
Format:Paperback
Laurel and Del's story is a solid addition to the series and it feels like Nora Roberts has really hit her stride. Both the main and secondary characters are well-drawn and the story flows smoothly, referring to events in the previous two books and alluding to the final story in the series. Unlike the first two books, there are no implausible plot devices (I found Jack and Emma's argument and resulting actions in their book extremely weak) and everything ties into an excellent story. Thank you, Ms. Roberts, for returning to the traditional romance that got me hooked on your work.

4.0 out of 5 stars good love story with funny dialogue April 27, 2010
By napgirl
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok, i normally don't review books; however, after i saw all the kindle hate skewing this book's review i decided to post my review. this is nora roberts doing what she does best- intricate characters, developing a romance with out too much drama, witty& funny dialogue. i will never again attend a wedding and not think of people as acronyms (FOB, MOB, MOH). and i laughed out loud at the scene by the pond. plus, in all of the scenes where she was baking, prepping cake, etc you could tell ms roberts did her research. so, waiting for parker's story- should be good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not enough drama but a gentle HEA from Nora April 28, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved the previous two Bride Quartet novels and am looking forward (with bated breath) to #4 in November. :) But this one was a bit disappointing b/c there wasn't enough conflict. Usu Nora gives us LOTS of conflict -- even if the conflict is internal, like Jack's main conflict in #2. Of course, there is the HEA part, but it's a gentle slide... and pretty much a given from page 10 or so... no questioning about anything. So 4 stars, not the 5 I'd give the first 2.

Kindle Version - overpriced
I agree...what is the point of having a Kindle if the books are more expensive to purchase? I am not a happy customer!!!!

Kindle version pricing too high
Same here. It is a shame that the publishers are trying to take advantage of the Kindle users, rather than pass on the cost savings you know they are experiencing as a result of not having to print a physical book.
