Format: Paperback
If you are looking for a classic romance with only a little bit of drama and lots of love, friendship and fun, then "Bed of Roses" will be a perfect choice.
Emmaline Grant's job is all about creating the perfect wedding day. As a florist and partner of "Vows" she is living her dream. She believes in love and hopes to someday have the kind of relationship her parents share. But she still hasn't found the one man with whom she wants to dance in the moonlight.
When suddenly the relationship to commitment shy architect Jack Cooke changes and they realize that there is more between them then just being good friends, Emma is excited but also a little bit afraid. She doesn't want to loose Jack as a friend but can't say no to the new path their relationship is going. Because she soon realizes that Jack has some flaws (he's a man so that's to be excepted) but that he also might be just perfect for her.

Wonderful characters, a beautiful story that concentrates on love and friendship and Nora Robert's love for details makes this the perfect book to forget everyday life.
Emma is a great heroine even though in real life it's hard not to hate a woman like her. She's beautiful, outgoing, intelligent, loves her life and job, has the best friends you can imagine and her parents are the perfect couple. But because she is also very kind and funny you just have to love her (I guess some envy is ok). Through the detailed description of her work (it's like the bouquets and arrangements are right in front of you) the reader can share the enthusiasm and love for her work and get's a close connection to Emma.
Jack is a man of action who's sexy and very manly. He enjoys his life as much as possible and works as hard as he plays.

Format: Paperback
Four childhood friends grew up together and spent almost all their spare time together, sharing their hopes and dreams. Once grown, these four women combined their individual talents to create a wedding planning company, Vows. Mackensie "Mac" Elliot works magic with her photography. Laurel McBane creates the cakes, pastries, and all things so deliciously sweet that little cherubs probably weep from bliss. Emmaline "Emma" Grant handles all greenery and flowers with such aplomb that clients often wonder if she is related to Mother Nature herself. And Parker Brown handles all the other details, being pleasant and/or sympathetic when needs be or dealing with problems like a general during wartime.

On their side, pitching in as needed, the four ladies have Parker's housekeeper, Mrs. G, who has been like a mother to the female quartet. Delaney "Del" Brown, Parker's brother, is a high priced attorney and handles the legal side of Vows with a golden touch. And Jack Cooke is the architect who has been Del's best friend forever and is ALMOST as much an honorary Brown family member as Parker's girlfriends.

According to everyone else, Emma's beauty outshines all others. Yet Emma has never considered herself to be any more special than the next woman. Emma's talent with flora is unmatched. She has the ability to accurately envision exactly what the bride wants and then adds her own personal touch to ensure that all who attend the wedding would later swear the ceremony had been held in Eden.

Though men swarm around her, Emma has never found the man that could sweep her off her feet. However, Jack has had his eyes on Emma for quite a while. He has only kept his distance because Del considers Emma to be his honorary sister.

Format: Paperback
I have really enjoyed most of Nora Roberts' books and look out for new ones, but this whole series I disliked. I think it is because I find everything about the wedding planning business (especially in America) superficial and contrived, and lacking in any genuine romance. All the emphasis is on the wrong things: the dress, the flowers, the photography, the music, the fleeting wedding day itself instead of two people in love pledging their lives to each other. I found it all a bit sickly, and much too rooted in American culture for my taste.

Format: Hardcover
With a Nora Roberts book you are always guaranteed a happily ever after and thankfully this book is no exception. The second book in the `Bride Quartet series catches up with four friends who run their own wedding planning business (`Vows'), and this time it's the turn of florist Emmaline to find her prince charming. To Emma's surprise though, he's closer than she ever imagined he has been, all along...

I've read books one and three in this series already, so you don't necessarily have to read them in their intended order, though some of the back stories continue from book to book, so it probably does help to do so in order work out what is going on, though not essential.

In terms of chemistry and characters, I think I prefer this book to the others in the series I've tried, to be honest. Emmaline is such a sweet, hopeless romantic and her relationship with architect Jack is based around moving from a true friendship to something more which makes for believability as well as issues. Add in lots of little quirks and hang-ups and it made for a pretty decent read. I liked Emmaline much better than photographer Mac. It's also good to catch up with the other three girls again and see how their lives are going- even though I've already read Laurel's story and know what is going to happen!

Though admittedly this book is a bit twee and contrived in places, it was still a nice, pleasant read. NR has tried to ensure the girls and their guys aren't `too' perfect but I still think they are, personally! Also, they have the most perfect setting imaginable to plan their weddings and are living in complete luxury with no fights, no arguments with one another. Not totally realistic, but hey ho. Needless to say, if you're looking for a romantic read then you could do worse than curling up with one of the `Bride Quartet' books, so give them a go. I'm looking forward to reading Blackberry-Addict Parker's story next in the final book of this set!
