"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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
