Bed of Roses (Bride Quartet, #2) , Savor the Moment (Bride Quartet, #3), Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet, #4) By Nora Roberts

Since I read these 3 books in quick secession I don't want to create a whole blog for each book.  So I am combining all 3.

Goodreads Description:

Bed of Roses:

As little girls MacKensie, Emma, Laurel, and Parker spent hours acting out their perfect make believe "I do" moments. Years later their fantasies become reality when they start their own wedding planning company to make every woman's dream day come true. With perfect flowers, delicious desserts, and joyful moments captured on film, Nora Roberts's Bride Quartet shares each woman's emotionally magical journey to romance.
In Bed of Roses, florist Emma Grant is finding career success with her friends at Vows wedding planning company, and her love life appears to be thriving. Though men swarm around her, she still hasn't found Mr. Right. And the last place she's looking is right under her nose.
But that's just where Jack Cooke is. He's so close to the women of Vows that he's practically family, but the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. When Emma returns his passion-kiss for blistering kiss-they must trust in their history...and in their hearts.

Savor the Moment:

Wedding baker Laurel McBane is surrounded by romance working at Vows wedding planning company with her best friends Parker, Emma, and Mac. But she's too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that their clients seem to long for. 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.
But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her-or so she thinks. When Laurel's quicksilver moods get the better of her-leading to an angry, hot, all-together mind-blowing kiss with Del-she'll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever...

Happy Ever After:

One by one, the women of Vows wedding planning company have found their own perfect matches, eventually leaving PR director Parker Brown as the only loner. When her encounters with mechanic Malcolm Kavanaugh take an unexpected direction, she begins to wonder if she too has found her perfect match. A perfectly tied bow to an enchanting romance series.

My Rating:

Bed of Roses 4 out of 5
Savor the Moment 4 out of 5
Happy Ever After 4 out of 5

My Reviews:

Bed of Roses:: Great Second book in the series! I loved reading Emma's story, finding out about her family and seeing her fall in love. Great series.

Savor the Moment:  Again a winner with Laurel's book. I was happy she and Delaney work out their issues and I love the vacation scenes. Great flow and dialogue too!

Happy Ever After: I enjoyed this book as well. I was very sad to see the series end. I got so involved with the characters and stories. I loved how Parker falls in love with Malcolm and I love how she has to let loose. I thought it was the perfect ending and am happy to read about at least one of their weddings (Mac's). Highly recommend this series! The only reason it's not a 5 out of 5 is cause I really would have loved to see all the weddings maybe in an epilogue and made the epilogue the last chapter.
