64. Vision in White
Rated 4 Stars
It looks like Nora Roberts has returned to her roots with this new series. I am so happy that she has because I think she is a much better Romance writer than she was with whatever it was she was trying to write with all the paranormal, mystery mish mash that she has been writing for the last several years. It seems like she has finally got her groove back just when Mary Balogh appears to have lost hers. Oh well, as long as I have one Romance writer at a time to read I will be happy.
PUBLISHER DESCRIPTION: Mackensie “Mac” Elliot had the perfect job and the best friends in the world, Emma, Laurel, and Parker. Together, the four were Vows, Connecticut’s hottest wedding-planning company. So what if Mac hadn’t found her own Mr. Right yet. Then Mac literally bumps into shy, scholarly, yet surprisingly sexy Carter Maguire when he turns up for his sister’s wedding-planning meeting, and Mac quickly discovers exactly what is missing from her up-until-now satisfactory life. After blending paranormal and fantasy elements in her last four romance trilogies, consistently engaging Roberts returns to basics and her literary roots. The result is a thoroughly charming contemporary romance that neatly showcases this reigning romance author’s flair for sharp, clever writing and realistically complicated characters in a compelling celebration of the power of friendship and love. --John Charles
