So, when Carter comes along, she does not really want to go further in their relationship. I personally did not enjoy this book the most, because it was the first of the series and took a while to pick up. However, I loved the ending and quickly put book number two on hold at the library. The second book, Bed of Roses, was about Emma, a true romantic, and a kind-spirited florist. She was always in love with romance, and so when she and Jack got together she was on cloud nine.
This is a gentle read and left me feeling completely happy. However, spoiler alert when Jack and Emma do have a small fight you can truly witness the love between the four best friends and how they stick together through everything. The third book, Savor the Moment, is my favourite, favourite, favourite book from the series because it is about Laurel and Del. There are definite sparks going on between the two— undeniable. So, when they decide to give themselves a try, it is a huge risk.
This book in my opinion, was perfect. The ending is beautiful and I have read it countless times. Laurel is head-strong, independent, protective and also comes from a rough past. She knows the value of her friends, and I was able to relate to her the most. The book is a huge winner. Parker comes from old money but she never acts as if she does.
Yeah, that old.
So, let me know if you happen to have read my review, made it this far down without dying of boredom, and actually give a crap about satisfying the curiosity of some crackpot in Texas. Anyway, it only sucked a bit. The next one is SURE to be better. View all 14 comments. Fell far below my expectations. I really had high hopes for this book given that the previous two installments of this series amazingly hit the mark for me. But sadly, as far as I can tell, there was not much of a romantic spark between Delaney and Laurel here.
And frankly, if there had been any chemistry between them, it would have felt totally forced. The romance aspect fell flat in my opinion and the dialogue between Delaney and Laurel was slightly lackluster. However, I Fell far below my expectations. However, I absolutely enjoyed an unconditional love and true friendship between these four ladies.
Since I started reading this series, I saw no sign that she could be such an unpleasant character to read about. But when I finally got to her own story, I found that she managed to annoy and bore me in equal measure.
For me, she came across more like a bitter, sullen, and difficult woman. Delaney was an ok hero but there was nothing particularly remarkable about him. It might be because he was somehow overshadowed by the other characters. I just wish there were more depth to his character. I felt like the ending was a bit rushed and unsatisfying.
It could have been better though. To tell you the truth, reading this one felt more like a chore than a pleasure to get through. View all 15 comments. Unfortunately, that got in the way of the romance and I didn't connect with Del and Laurel's love story. Del was a nice guy, but too smooth and perfect to raise my temperature. Laurel was a bit harsher than him, but her bouts of temper felt forced to me because they were irrational and came out of nowhere.
Okay, that is known to happen in Romancelandia, but that behavior is usually associated with a character who's also irrational - and that wasn't Laurel's case.
So, all in all, this was a slightly better than average read to me, mostly because I enjoyed watching the friends' dynamics. Del and Laurel's romance was kind of meh. I was happy with their HEA, but I wouldn't be devastated if they had decided to stay just friends.
Now I have a long wait until Happy Ever After , the last book in the series. I really hope it's worth the wait and the series ends with a bang. View all 17 comments. May 20, Carrie rated it it was ok Shelves: It was an okay story overall, and I liked the characters, although I did get tired of Laurel at times.
Mostly, though, I got stuck on the "snappy dialog" that made everyone sound like characters out of a TV sit com or Rom Com movie. Not only did everyone in the book respond with one or two word phrases, but everyone sounded identical. Even the older Mrs. Grady spoke mainly in predicates. Some of the dialog was funny and clev 2. Some of the dialog was funny and clever, but it all sounded completely scripted, like the actors on a Disney channel tween show.
So no matter how cute the story was, I was always completely distracted by dialog and the fact that no one talks that way in real life. I know we don't talk in complete sentences all the time, but take a look at the book.
Everyone answers in weird sentence fragments. And, after 3 books, I'm over the "heart-warming groups of loyal best girlfriends. Everyone is so perfect and makes all these perfectly wonderful decisions. I also got tired of the repeated descriptions of the characters workouts. I can maybe see describing the cakes, or flowers, but Parker's exercise routine?
View all 8 comments. This is probably my least favorite installment into this series and my least favorite couple, and I still really enjoy both the book and the couple. Laurel is an amazing pastry chef. The wedding cakes she designs for her clients are beautiful enough to make angels weep, and are always lovingly personalized to each couple.
Delaney has always viewed Laurel as another sister; or at least, he did, until she completely destroyed that viewpoint by kissing the sisterly affection right out of him. The relationship they build from the ashes of that familial fondness is sweet and funny. Laurel is incredibly sarcastic, and not the most optimistic of women. Her surliness is at odds with her sunny blonde hair and cornflower blue eyes.
Same goes for Del. All of that being said, I still devoured this book cake pun intended. View 2 comments. And yet another Nora Roberts winner in this amazing series. And this time, though it still revolved around the friendship between Mac, Emma, Laurel and Parker, the story was mostly about the romance between life-long friends. So the switch held much more danger and possible obstacles. For the And yet another Nora Roberts winner in this amazing series.
So the same fears and worries as with Emma and Jack were there, but much more augmented, because of that long er friendship.
But it was beautifully done, if you ask me, much better than in Bed of Roses , especially since the hero Del had no obvious and well-known commitment issues Jack had. And that is the biggest problem I had with Laurel. And too stubborn to listen But, her love for Del was there, and I forgave her. First, it was because Laurel was more reserved by nature, preferring to solve her problems on her own and second, there was no big rift between her and Del to demand an intervention in the first place.
Sure, she made a mess with her stubbornness and refusal to listen, but it was quickly resolved. And who resolved it? Del, of course. He was over protective, self-assured, caring, loving, tender, funny, sexy my mouth watered reading the pond scene , and romantic the awwwwww-factor in the ending was all him. I cannot wait to read about him and Parker. Romantic, funny, sexy, sensual, light-weight, emotion-engaging A truly awesome read.

You're sure to fall in love with them while they fall in love with each other. This third installment of The Bride Quartet doesn't disappoint in any way.
Del and Laurel verbally spar with each other and the dialogue snaps as you'll laugh at their witty comebacks at one another. While Mac and Carter continue to be my favorite couple of this series, this comes a very close second.
Laurel is one tough cookie, to use a baking analogy, and she has love I love the way Nora Roberts crafts her characters.
Laurel is one tough cookie, to use a baking analogy, and she has loved Del all her life, finally she decides to do something about it. In comic retaliation, Del steals her shoes you'll have to read it to understand all of this.
The love story is wonderful, but what makes this series so enjoyable is the four friends and the relationship they all have and the friendships between the men in their lives as they get to know one another. The scenes where the four women are together, discussing everything from weddings, their own as well as others, to their love lives, troublesome parents, etc are often laugh out loud funny.
One last thing, I love all the initial-speak that the girls do together and in this book, you'll learn a new one: Oh, and even though we aren't yet to his story, I'm already a teeny bit in lurve with Mal. Can't wait for the final book. View all 5 comments. Jun 07, Love Fool rated it really liked it.
This book revolves around the talented baker Laurel. This series is fun, a good book to read without putting too much thought into it. It's cute and cheesy, which everyone needs once in a while. It reminds me of every little girl's fairy tale with the great company that the women own and rich good-looking men after these women.
And, not to mention how quickly they get engaged! I'm over two years in and still no ring, how do these women do it?
View 1 comment. I really wanted to love this one, but I didn't. I did like Del and Lauren, but I didn't like the 'conflict'. It was weak, since she'd known him her whole life. It felt like the author had to come up with something to make them 'have it out' before they got an HEA.
I am so looking forward to Parker and Mal's book. We get to visit them a bit and this one, and I kept wishing for this to be their book.
Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts (Bride Quartet, Book 3)
Ah well, we can't love em all. View all 4 comments. Aug 14, Clare rated it liked it.
Laurel's cakes may have been beautiful, but they just didn't sound delicious. Some writers have that ability to make you drool over the printed word.
Oh, I'm sure the wedding cakes were delicious, but Nora Roberts' talent is not in describing food. Too bad.
I would have loved a romance novel that also described cake.
Just the word makes me happy. Birthday cake! Wedding cake! Happy day cake! Cakes are celebratory but Laurel seemed like a cranky bitch. Maybe it was from her celibacy vow? Unf Laurel's cakes may have been beautiful, but they just didn't sound delicious. Unfortunately, this middle book part of a quartet instead of her usual trilogy serves just as a placeholder.
The first and last books are always better. So Mackenzie's story was awesome, Emma's romantic dilemma seemed weak, and Laurel's relationship with Del seems sex-based primarily, since they have known each other for years. I do think the stranger-romance, rather than the childhood-friend romance, is sexier, since their exploration of personality and dynamics causes more ups and downs in the relationship.
That's why I'm looking forward to Parker and Mal's relationship. Once again, I think Nora Roberts is getting too old to effectively write about female friendship. She thinks that they all talk about hot jungle sex and refer to it as HJS - puh-leeze and call each other bitches.
It was an okay story, but you really aren't missing anything if you skip this one. Apr 30, Samantha rated it it was ok Shelves: This was not a good read for several reasons: Laurel was very childish and cranky.
She was snapping at Del throughout the whole book and it turned me off from her.
There was too much time where Laurel was telling her emotions to the girls and not to Del. Now that I really think about this series, these women remind me of a sorority. I just can't understand how they are together every day all day.
It was too much for me. I must be very moody right now but I couldn't deal with them. Do the This was not a good read for several reasons: Do they ever stop working or exercising. Speaking of exercising, I was sick of that and drinking tea. Tea is not the equivalent to a meal. I wondered whether they were heavy set children and that is why they feel the need to exercise all day.
Really, the author need to stop harping on those details and get back to the romance. There was no conflict except Laurel's attitude.
She turned into my least favorite character. Del needed a nicer woman. She fought him at every turn. He wanted to explore where the kiss could go and she was snapping at him. I found this contradictory to her stating that she had a crush on him since forever.
If my childhood crush stated he wanted to start dating me, I would be all over him. Not enough of Parker and Mal hey, at least they entertained me and they had more of a connection than Del and Laurel. Terzo appuntamento della saga Il quartetto della sposa, che io ho letto come secondo e devo dire che non mi ha creato un problema particolare. Consueta ambientazione nella grande tenuta dei Brown, bei personaggi e dialoghi scattanti e ricchi.
Emanuela - per RFS Unless the next one really pulls out all the stops, this will probably remain my favourite of the series.
I didn't know what to expect from Laurel, because in the previous books she'd always seemed like the kind of character I neither like nor dislike. She came across as vaguely annoyed and somewhat ill-tempered all the time, but not necessarily in a bad way, if that makes sense. She was also known by the others as the hard-ass of the group, together with Parker, so I didn't know what I'd be in Unless the next one really pulls out all the stops, this will probably remain my favourite of the series.
She was also known by the others as the hard-ass of the group, together with Parker, so I didn't know what I'd be in for with this book. Del, on the other hand, I pretty much loved from the very first mention of him in book 1.
And I liked them together a lot, even though the whole unrequited crush trope can be tricky sometimes. Their banter and sarcastic comments thrown back-and-forth especially worked for me.
Plus, there was little to no conflict here and what was there made sense. Laurel had a dumb meltdown moment towards the end, but then I'd come to expect that with these books. Jan 10, Nadia rated it really liked it.
Big improvement compared to the last one. No fake, forced conflict or breakup. Del and Lauren are just too good together.
Can't wait for Parker's book. May 22, K. I've been pretty eager for this book to come out, as I've been happily following the series. Surprising for me how much I've enjoyed this new series by Nora Roberts since I'm not usually a big fan of her books hit and miss with me.
I suspect part of the reason I'm particularly attracted to the stories is due to the wedding planner theme -- it's particularly girly, and I'm pretty darn "girly" myself!
Girl-next store falls in love with boy-next door stuff - another "girly" type romance theme. I enjoyed Laurel and Del's story immensely. I have a feeling these books may come off better in audio than they might be in paper book form. Angela Dawe is the reader on this one, and she's spectacular. She gives a lot of life to the characters, and her inflection and emotion is spot on. Her voices are distinct, and match the characters she assigns them to. I really "get" her emotional vibes, and that goes a long way in getting into the scenes.
Laurel and Del have been virtually life-long friends, and have even "married each other a couple of times" by the time they'd grown up. Since the 4 main heroines of this series own a very successful wedding planning business, Parker Del's sister had collared Del a few times to "play groom" by the time he was 8 or 9 years old and paired him up with best friend Laurel while playing "bride" together.
Laurel, however, has always known she's hopelessly in love with Del, and that no matter how often she's tried to change the fact and refocus her energies toward other relationships, Del's "THE one" for her! Del has a harder time defining his feelings for Laurel, although he's never doubted for a moment he "love's" her, and has always loved her I've heard a few reviewers define Laurel's attitude as a bit too bitchy toward Del, and that just doesn't come across in the audiobook.
The narrator makes her feelings appropriate and I always knew that Laurel was just "guarding" her feelings. Del comes across as the "head of the family" which encompasses ALL of his circle of friends, including Laurel: Very in-charge, protective, yet funny and cool type of guy.
Can't wait! The whole audiobook series is worth listening to more than once. Unfortunately, this one was just ok for me. I was kind of bored with both Del and Laurel. If Laurel loved Del her whole life I didn't see much of it.
I really got tired of all the exercise and scenes with the brides that really didn't have anything to do with the Del and Laurel. I guess I wanted to see them together more and it just didn't happen. I kind of trudged through this one and was glad it was finally over. It's not to say I didn't enjoy parts of the book but for the most part this book w Unfortunately, this one was just ok for me.
It's not to say I didn't enjoy parts of the book but for the most part this book was boring for me. Yes, Laurel loved Del forever but it didn't feel real to me.
It seemed there was more focus on exercise, baking, weddings and the four friends. Friendships are wonderful of course, but this is a romance. I wanted a bit more. It all fell flat for me. I definitely liked Jack and Emma's story better.Adult Fiction. Now that I really think about this series, these women remind me of a sorority. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker's older brother Delaney, on whom she's had a mega-crush since childhood.
