Summary:

Though her friends Mac and Emma have found love, Laurel isn’t looking for anything in particular.  She enjoys being the pastry chef at the wedding planning company, Vows, she founded with her three best friends.  However, her mind changes when she decides to pursue Del, her friend Parker’s brother.  They’ve known each other for years, and Laurel’s always been a little bit in love with him.  But for all Laurel knows, Del thinks of her as his sister.  Will he be able to look at her as something more?

Review:

I enjoyed the first two novels in Nora Roberts’ Bride Quartet (Vision in White and Bed of Roses), so I definitely knew I wanted to read the third book when it came out.  Savor the Moment is a sweet, light read that fans of the series should definitely pick up.

Roberts’ strength is in developing her characters, and Savor the Moment is no exception.  Laurel is a talented, strong woman, but she is insecure about her past.  Her father was unfaithful to her mother, and she isn’t quite sure whether she can trust and believe in Del.  She partners with Del very well, and they make an attractive (if sickeningly sweet) couple.

There’s no denying that Savor the Moment is predictable – Roberts dropped heavy hints about the partnering of Laurel and Del in the previous book.  Additionally, I don’t think readers have any doubt who Parker will end up with in the final book of the quartet.  But surprise in the plot isn’t the reason people will pick up this book – it’s about the characters and their friendships with one another, not to mention the crazy wedding planning these women have to do.

Savor the Moment is a fun, frothy, fluffy book that is great if you’re in the mood for an easy read.  Yes, it’s very predictable, but it’s still fun to sit back and enjoy this novel with a glass of wine.

  1. I find Nora Roberts not very engaging after the first book. With other authors it usually takes me three or 4 reads before I come to the same conclusion 🙂

  3. You said it right ..I was pretty sure in Vision In White about the love interests of 2 others and in Bed Of Roses I knew really well whom Parker would end up with . But it’s the way Roberts shows their bonding,their friendship that makes me want to read it.

  7. I want to read this series that Nora Roberts writes. I think I’m going to wait until all the books are available though. I do like Nora Roberts series or trilogies. For me, they work better than her non-series books. She is really engaging at times, just what I need. Yes, predictable, but sometimes that is just the thing. 🙂

  9. I’ve never read anything by Roberts, though I do think I have at least one of her books on my shelf. I am glad you had such a good time with this book, even if it was a tad predictable!

  11. Roberts would be a new-to-me author, but I’ve been skeptical to pick up this series after my sister recently bashed it! Haha. Oh my. Something about the first novel really didn’t appeal to her and she abandoned it partway through… I’m thinking about giving it a chance, anyway! The covers are delicious!

  13. I do like her In Death series, so I should give the romances a try.
