Happy Ever After
by Nora Roberts
Bride Quartet Series

Barnes and Noble synopsis:

Parker Brown turned the quartet’s childhood game of Wedding Day into their dream jobs. And now she’s the face of Vows — the one who meets every bride’s demands; keeps every event on schedule; and brings Emma’s romantic flowers, Laurel’s delicious treats, and Mac’s stunning photography together in one glorious package. She knows how to make dreams come true…

Mechanic Malcolm Kavanaugh loves figuring out how things work, and Parker Brown — with her mile-long legs — is no exception. But as a good friend of Parker’s brother, Mal knows that moving from minor flirtation to major hookup is a serious step.

No man has rattled Parker in a long time, but the motorcycle-riding, raven-haired Mal seems to have a knack for it. His passionate kisses always catch her off guard, much like her growing feelings for him. Parker’s business risks have always paid off, but now she’ll have to take the chance of a lifetime with her heart…


I enjoyed this whole series. One thing I don't like is that it's too girly. All the girls get in to this mushy mushy time and it happens so often that it's hard to read. I almost skipped over those things. But I would have missed some key parts.

But I loved Malcom. I think he held my attention. The guys also were too mushy. It makes me sad that they were just as bad as the girls. Guys don't do that. At least the manly guys she portrayed every one of them to be (well, maybe besides Carter).

Anyway, I suggest reading the others (obviously first) and you'll end up reading all the way to the end of this because you like the other characters. I thought Parker would be the best, especially with Malcom, but I think my favorites are Emma & Jack and Laurel & Delaney.

Read Vision in White, Bed of Roses, and Savor the Moment first.

I thought Nora Roberts might wrap everything up, but maybe she's going to write another general one? Because they only got to Mac and Carter's wedding at the end, and everything else was totally left open with the "possibility of it".


The Christmas Brides by Linda Lael Miller

I took a hiatus from books for a while. With the wedding and planning some vacations and our honeymoon... But I'm back!! I've got a couple of recent books I have that I read. Here's the first one:

The Christmas Brides
by Linda Lael Miller

B&N Synopsis:

A McKettrick Christmas

Lizzie McKettrick is on a homebound train with a Christmas Eve surprise for her family—a special young man, Whitley Carson. He might seem a little too interested in the McKettrick money, but Lizzie's certain Whitley cares for her deep down. But fate has a surprise for Lizzie—Dr. Morgan Shane. When their train is stranded by a massive avalanche on Christmas Eve the handsome doctor takes charge—with Lizzie by his side. Time's running out for the passengers. But with faith, hard work and some unexpected help, it just might be a joyous McKettrick family Christmas after all….

A Creed Country Christmas

In the Montana wilderness of 1910, Lincoln Creed is up against more than rustlers, wolves and winter storms. His young daughter, Gracie, has needs beyond the beans and bacon he can barely cook. The widowed rancher must find Gracie a suitable governess who won't set her sights on him. Disowned for her refusal to marry, the young schoolteacher Juliana Mitchell seems like a perfect fit in the Creed home. As she gets to know Lincoln and Gracie, Juliana suddenly doesn't feel so strongly against marriage after all. In the season of miracles, Providence just might find a way to bring these souls together in a wonderful Christmas blessing.


The first book (McKettricks) was slow building. Right away the main character threw away her first choice which made me wonder if she wasn't strong enough to stick with her decisions. But she ended up proving me wrong. I did feel like towards the end it just kept continuing when it could have ended several times. But Linda Lael Miller wanted to wrap everything up. I haven't read any of the McKettricks before, so I bought her other books in the McKettricks series for my kindle.

The second book (Creed) was really sweet. The tension was built quicker. The back of the book explained more about the the female character than the actual book did. Or at least the reason she is anti-______ (don't want to ruin it!). Parts were very touching between the two main characters. I do feel that some of the men's advice scenes are a little too far. Not much, but I can't imagine two tough guys laying their emotions out in front of each other, no matter the situation. At least in that situation. I dunno. I still really loved it.

Definitely read this book :)
