This is my second review on the Nora Roberts Bride Quartet series and probably the last one I will read for a while. I picked the two with the most interesting topics to myself--photography and this one desserts. Who wouldn't like desserts?

Many people who I spoke with who read this series told me there was quite a bit of descriptive passages on the subject. And there is certainly a lot in these books as Laural McBane makes her way through each wedding by using her gift to create the perfect cake for the bride and the groom.

Her own love life isn't so perfect though. For as far back as she can remember Laurel has had a thing her her good friend lawyer, and brother of her partner Parker, Delaney. Del gets a wide awakening to her feelings one day when a fit of anger causes Laurel to lose control and plant a sexy kiss to his lips.

To Del's surprise he can't get that kiss off his mind and he proposes a deal with Laurel. One month of dating with no sex and see where their relationship can lead.

There is nothing special about these story lines, but generally the soap opera of the Bridal Quartet's business can be amusing at times. Generally this is a fun series to read if you're looking for a light romance read featuring friends and a series.

New Love takes the cake in the third novel in Nora Roberts's new Bride Quartet-in a stunning French flap edition

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...

  1. Laurel and Del's story is a solid addition to the series and it feels like Nora Roberts has really hit her stride. Both the main and secondary characters are well-drawn and the story flows smoothly, referring to events in the previous two books and alluding to the final story in the series. Unlike the first two books, there are no implausible plot devices (I found Jack and Emma's argument and resulting actions in their book extremely weak) and everything ties into an excellent story. Thank you, Ms. Roberts, for returning to the traditional romance that got me hooked on your work.
