Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a novel of love, friendship, and family in Book One in the Bride Quartet.

Wedding photographer Mackensie "Mac" Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be's brother...an encounter that has them both seeing stars.

A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac's type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends—and business partners—to see her way to her own happy ending.

Not bad, but one for the girls!

This isn't a bad story, although it dwells rather lovingly on the wedding design side of things, so if you're not interested in what makes a girl's wedding dreams come true, you might struggle (as I did!). It's essentially a straightforward love story, and while I did want to shake the heroine a couple of times, the hero is a star. It's also quite funny at times.
I can't download this in the new Enhanced format (my ipod nano is too old) and the quality, at the highest I could get, was poor, bassy and slightly fuzzy. I got used to it, but these audio books aren't cheap, and should be easy to listen to.
Anyhow, if you like a nice love story, with no nasty baddies or serious catastrophes strewn in the path of true lurve, then give this a go.

Disappointing

I have been an avid reader of Nora Roberts' books for many years. However I struggled to finish this one. I just didn't like her heroine and the hero, for me, didn't match up to her usual standard. Very disappointing.

Not Nora Robert’s best book

This book was so light and fluffy, it almost didn’t exist. It will be intersting to see if the rest of the series develops the characters,and plot with more depth.

Horrible narrator!!!

Would you try another book written by Nora Roberts or narrated by Emily Durante?

Nora Roberts, yes. Emily Durante, never in a million years. How can she have passed test by Brilliance Audio? Surely someone listens to the people before they hire them?!? Awful just awful,

What did you like best about this story?

The syory is typical Nora Roberts, not her best, but quite good.

How could the performance have been better?

Get someone who can speak English! Narrator sounds either like she's deaf, severely mentally slow, or has recently learnt the English language. She overpronounces every word, the women sound like silly, little children, and the men sound like comical baboons!

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story is good, the narrator is the most awful I've ever heard, and I listen to about 20 books/year

Any additional comments?

Whatever you do, stay away from this book! Get the paperversion

Pleasant Romanticism

Written to the tried and tested Mills and Boons Style formula this is a contemporary romance about four friends who play weddings a children and grow up to run their own wedding planning company as adults. The characters were believeable. It might not be literature but it is reasonably well written and a highly enjoyable fun read. Wholesome reading for a pleasant escape.

Bad Narration

I read this series and looked forward to listening to it. This narrator ruined the story. One voice and a lisp too! - I am glad to see the narrator was changed for the 2nd and 3rd book in the series so I am looking forward to hearing those. I recommend reading the paper copy and skipping this audio.

Worst. Narrator. Ever.

I can handle almost any narrator, but this one takes the cake as the worst. All the male voices were made to sound like idiots and all the females came off as just silly. The narration was so overwhelmingly bad the story was completely ruined. The Bride Quartet is a good change of pace to have a Nora Roberts series that stuck straight to the romance, without crime or supernatural (although I enjoy those as well).

so-so

Not the best of the genre, quite predictable and unoriginal. The narration was at times just boring.

Romance okay, narrator stinks!

The story is okay but not one of Nora Robert's best. The narrator really killed it for me. She has a lisp and I'm not sure why they would have someone with a lisp narrate a book - it was very distracting. The characters were not as developed and you didn't feel the attraction between them like I have in other NR books.

This is the first in a series and if the same narrator does future books I won't be purchasing them. Save your credits/money.

Not so much

Never listened to Nora Roberts before- not sure if this inspired me to buy more although I have heard they can be addictive. Trying not to be offensive but the narrator's lisp is very distracting and each character has the same voice- not distinction and everything is said in a sing-song, high school way. Really wanted to like the story but its just to hard to get past the narrator.

just ok:(

I am sorry I bought this one. I haven't finished it yet. I have had it for at least 6 days and it keeps putting me to sleep. I think the other reviewer whose title is boring pretty much covers it. Get it from the library, don't waste your time or just wait until it is given to you. I really like Nora Roberts and the fact that her book are usually totally different. Not a punch out, change the names, put it in the same area books. I think she may have phoned this one in. Oh well can't all be home runs. Just didn't want to spend 17 dollars on a foul ball.

Surprised at Nora Roberts

I wait for all of Nora`s books including JDRobb/I do alot of driving. The reader of this book is very hard to listen. She appears to have a lisp so all of the characters have it as well
so if the reader is important to you do what i am doing buying a hard copy.

Enchanting Professor McGuire :)

I had no problem with the narrator. This is a simple romance and as far as I was concerned was a fun listen, requiring little sophistication in narration. The romance in this first book of a quartet was very enjoyable and Carter, the man in this first romance was charming, vulnerable but very self assured about what he wanted in Mac.
No surprises in this series but fun listens and fun character development. Will never be recommended reading from a scholarly perspective but I have enjoyed listening a few times.

Another favorite by Nora Roberts

I really didn't want this series to end. Each of the 'brides' were women I would like to keep as best friends. Their different personalities/quirks complemented each other and were a perfect fit. All four books were fantastic with no offensive sex and little offensive language. I have all this series in books, on my kindle and in Audible. The narration really brought the characters to life and added much depth to the storyline. I miss this style from Nora Roberts and wish that she would write another series. This series and the Boonesboro are my favorite in her true romance
