Happily Ever After by Nora Roberts (Bride Quartet)

(Scroll down to see the order of the Bride Quartet. This is book four.)

It's been a few years since I've looked forward to the conclusion of a series as much as this one. Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet) by Nora Roberts wraps up the Bride Quartet quite nicely. This one is the story of Parker Brown, the mastermind behind the team at Vows, an exclusive wedding planning service and location. Parker is the brains, she's organized to her teeth and is always in control. Malcolm is her brother Del's friend, and mechanic to the Vows team. Parker dreams of happily ever after, but she has it all planned out, and Malcolm is not part of it.

I loved this entire series, but Parker and Mal was the one I was most looking forward to. I couldn't wait to see someone shake up her perfect control. I wasn't certain that I really liked Parker before this one, but I knew that it would be great to see someone get to her. Malcolm is very successful at his job.  He's built a reputation and isn't just some hole-in-the-wall shop. Mal knows what he wants, which is Parker, but he also knows that she's calling the shots.

This ended up being my second favorite of the group. The main action centers around the wedding of Mac and Carter from Vision in White (The Bride Quartet, Book 1), which is where the series concludes. The winter season turns out to be a really busy one at Vows (tho, what season isn't?) and all of them are swamped. Mal forces Parker to make time for her and before you know it they are head over heels. Now I happen to like romance novels where not a whole like happens plotwise so this was right up my alley, but if you prefer a little action with your romance, you may not enjoy it so much.  I managed to read it in one day, because it's light and easy and fits what I need right now, but there isn't a lot of meat to it.

For this series, I'd rank them in the following order:

Vision in White (The Bride Quartet, Book 1) (my review)
Happy Ever After (Bride Quartet)
Bed of Roses (The Bride Quartet, Book 2) (my review)
Savor the Moment (The Bride Quartet, Book 3) (my review)
