Nora Roberts is the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of nearly two hundred novels. Under the pen name J. D. Robb, she is author of the New York Times bestselling futuristic suspense series, which features Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.
Superorganized wedding planner Parker Brown knows exactly the kind of man she will eventually marry-and it certainly isn't a mechanic with a bad-boy smile. But when sexy Mal Kavanaugh zooms to her rescue after she is run off the road, her carefully imagined future does an about-face and evolves along completely unexpected lines. Naturally, readers know exactly where this unlikely romance is going-even if Parker doesn't-and will not be surprised when Parker and Mal overcome their fears and differences and finally commit. Although complete in itself, this final installment in Roberts's "Bride Quartet" includes a number of important continuing characters, and readers may want to follow the books in order (Vision in White; Bed of Roses; Savor the Moment). Verdict Funny, spicy, and enjoyable, this novel ties up a few loose ends, gives the villains their due and the heroes and heroines their happy endings, and adds another solid miniseries to Roberts's (The Search) already impressive list. Roberts lives in Keedysville, MD. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
Bridal expert Parker "Legs" Brown meets her perfect match in Roberts's delicious ode to weddings and happy endings, the charming conclusion of the Bride Quartet (after Savor the Moment) about four childhood friends who as adults form a Connecticut wedding planning company. In the palatial Brown estate, a multitude of marriages have been celebrated while each wedding planner in turn has found her heart's desire. Cupid's target for Parker is her brother Del's friend Malcolm Kavanaugh, a former stuntman turned mechanic. Harley-riding Mal is a rough-and-tumble hunk who captures Parker's heart with twinkling eyes and steamy moves that melt her cool reserve. Romance veteran Roberts fills the pages with frothy fun, culminating in-of course-plenty of bridal fabulousness. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
