Review - Savor the Moment

Savor the Moment is the latest novel in Nora Roberts' new romantic series, The Bride Quartet.  The Bride Quartet is about four childhood friends, Emma Grant, Lauren McBane, Mackensie Elliott and Parker Brown, who have turned a favorite childhood game, Wedding Day, into a successful wedding planning business, Vows, in Connecticut.  Each of the friends has a special talent that she brings to the business.

In the first novel, Vision in White, Mac, the group's photographer, found love with Carter Maguire, a high school English teacher who had a crush on her when they were in high school.

In the second novel, Bed of Roses, Emma, the group's florist, found love with Jack Cooke, another childhood friend who is also the best friend of Parker's older brother, Delaney.

In Savor the Moment, Lauren, who is the wedding baker for Vows, must decide if she is willing to take a chance at finding love with Delaney Brown, the older brother of her best friend, Parker.  Del is also the group's attorney. 

This novel is a fun romance as Lauren goes through the ups and downs of figuring out if she and Del have a chance at making a life together.  Part of Lauren's problem is that she has had to work hard to achieve her goals and dreams since her father lost all of his money while Del comes from old money.

I have been enjoying this series.  The characters are well developed and the story keeps the reader entertained from start to finish. The interaction between the four friends, as well as Mrs. Grady, the Browns' housekeeper, the clients, and the men in their lives is beautifully written.  While you can see some of things coming, getting there is full of laughter and sadness.  Mac's mother is a recurring character that you love to hate.

I am looking forward to the last book in the quartet, Happy Ever After, and can't wait until it comes out in November 2010.


  1. I love Nora Roberts. Though I haven't read this book, now I think I'll check them out!

  2. I love Nora Roberts as well. I usually enjoy her books, but there are some that I just can't read no matter how I try. I was glad when I started this series and found that it wasn't one of them.

    Let me know what you think when you read them. :)
