Vision in White
Kindle ASIN: B001VFTYY6.
#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents a novel of love, friendship, and family in Book One in the Bride Quartet.
Wedding photographer Mackensie "Mac" Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal whe
Pure boring. This audio book should come with a warning “Don’t listen to while operating moving vehicles, may cause severe drowsiness.”
I now know WAAAAAY more about wedding planning and passive/aggressive relationships than I ever cared to know. Where was the entertainment, the spark between hero/heroine, and the romance in all that page filler?
It started out pretty good, but degraded as it went on. It became just one stupid self-imposed conflict after another, sandwiched between way too many ...more
Aww, that's so sweet!
In this book we have four female friends who own a wedding planning company. They each have a specific part of it, and our heroine, Mac, is the photographer. It's just a good thing that one of the other girls likes to bake wedding cakes, another is a florist, and the fo ...more
Mackensie Elliot aka Mac runs a Wedding Planning business with her childhood friends and is a successful photographer. Absentee father and selfish mother with a penchant for drama have wrecked her childhood and left her a commitment phobic cynic. Enter the hero, a gorgeous nerd who emits goodness and has been crushing on Mac for more than a decade. ...more
Nobody writes friendship like NR and I really enjoyed watching the interactions between Mac and her friends. Carter's slightly crazy friend Bob, with his "helpful" lists, was also fun to be with. In fact, everyone - besides the accidental stressed B, G, MOB, FOB, MOG, FOG, MOH, BM, FG and any other acronym the wedding business can come up with - was nice and fun. That lead to a lack of real conflict in the story, hence my lukewarm rating. I liked this book and its characters, since it ...more

★★★ 3 Rom-Com stars.★★★
Vision in White starts of by introducing a group of besties that run a very successful Event planning agency dedicated mostly to a bride's most defining moment,Her Wedding.
How I ended up picking this book:
Vision in White was basically my first Nora Roberts.So its safe to say I didn't really go in with super high expectations or such.Heard a lot about this author from my besties here on GR and thought to just give this one a go,out of pure curiosity.*shrug*
My thought ...more
I regret nothing.
Have I mentioned to anyone that I love me some Nora, that she’s chicken soup for my soul and a bubble bath for my brain? That her books cheer me up when I’m sad and comfort me when I’m sick? Well, she is and they do. Which I why I keep going back to her greatest hits time and again in ...more
In this story Mackenzie is the photographer in the four friend's wedding planner business. When she meets Carter she knows he is co ...more
I’m really surprised by how much I enjoyed this, especially since it was a random read while I was awaiting some August releases and because other than the J.D. Robb In Death books I’ve read, Nora Roberts often tends to be a little too vanilla ice cream for me. But I just loved sweet, shy, nerdy, English professor Carter to bits! It was so adorable and funny how he got so embarrassed over his friend Bob’s dating advice. And the list? Priceless! He made me smile and ...more
Mac Elliot runs a wedding planning shop with her three friends, in which she is the photogra ...more
However, there's a good reason why I've never tried anything from Nora Roberts outside of that series. I guess I've always had this supposition that Robert's books are basically contemporary, chaste bodice rippers (oxymoron, I know) with an extra helping of fluff - based solely on Visio ...more
I'm not much of a romance reader, I do like a story that'll make me swoon from time to time (and these are becoming hard to find) but th ...more
This isn't really a review, but, in a nod to timing, I wanted to alert anyone that still might have some Steve Kornacki thirst that the hero in this could help carry some of that weight. Dr. Maguire is a high school Lit teacher and a competent cinnamon roll.
The rest of the characters and story, meh, a lot of wedding talk with acronyms (ex. MOB-mother of bride) that ruined the smoothness of reading for me, I couldn't quite sink into the romance, and overall this just had some caustic ch ...more
Now, I will be honest here. Even though I have been reading romance novels for a long time from various romance novelists, I had never read any of Nora Roberts’ works before and her work is everywhere in the reading sphere! So, when I stumbled upon this book by Nora Roberts called “Vision in White,” I just knew that this was the book that was going to introduce me to Nora Roberts’ works in a good way!
Mackensie “Mac” Elliot had dreamed for all her life about taking pictures at a wedding and she f ...more
I loved Mackenzie and Carter. They seem to be complete opposite, but they compliment each other so well. I loved the organic way the relationship unfolded. Of course the 3 other ladies are fabulous and I love love love the support between all of them. The friendship was easily one of the best parts of the story.
Plot wise, it was good. There were some time shifts that didn’t sit with me as I never really knew the when of t ...more
This is one of Nora Roberts' wonderful love stories. I found many beautiful things in this book: friendships between friends, the warmth of family, unconditional love, and true love from the hero.
Nora Roberts has always created such adorable beta heroes. In this book, Carter Maguire was an extremely nerdy guy, but oh, he was so sweet! I always have my soft spot for nerdy heroes.
The heroine, Mac, she was strong, smart, and a bit stubborn. She had some kind of commitment issues because of her ...more
Not going to lie, I thought I was going to hate this book because of the theme and because of the author. I thought Nora Roberts was writing stupid chick-lit books but it turns out I have been wrong for years. Nora Roberts is a funny writer with real a ta ...more
And liking it!! O_O
Any other writer would probably make me want to hit my head against a wall....quite a number of times!! All those....tiny little details....like matching colours and flowers...and dresses...and napkins... OH BOY!!!
I confess that this is probably my favourite genre inside Nora Roberts "plots": The friends that come together to create a business. I just like the way the relationsh ...more
Mac needs a life partner who can understand her skepticism in true love and marriage. I have loved how Carter wins her trust with so much patience, showing her his love without pushing her to make a decision about getting married.
I have really loved this book.
It’s a common story about a women, who is a photographer and have a wedding busines ...more
Roberts does a fine job, as usual, in providing insight into the wedding planning and management industry as a backdrop to Mac's story. While there are some predictable elements, v ...more
This was just not for me.
Vision in White is known as one of the best Nora Roberts Romance, so maybe I had expectations.
I can see what appeals to other readers in this book.
It would definitely look good as a sitcom on Netflix, with all those weddings and a group of four friends always works.
I really liked Carter very much.
He is the only highlight of the book for me.
Carter Maguire I WANT TO MARRY YOU!!!!
Like...damn. Maybe my hormone levels are super high or something but this guy was making me melt all over the place. Thud-a-dud-dud.
Seriously if you are an incredibly smart, awkward, easily-flustered klutz with a penchant for rescuing 3 legged cats, always there to take a girl's coat, good listener, a sweetheart and a com ...more

He closed the distance between them.
“You’ll get used to it.” He tipped her face up to his, kissed her.
“Why? Why am I the one?”
“Because my life opened up, and it flooded with color when you walked back into it.”
