Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts

The second installment of Nora Roberts’ Bride Quartet features Emma, a wedding florist and one of the founders of Vows—Connecticut’s premiere wedding company. Emma loves being surrounded by flowers and her three best friends on the job. Though she gets a lot of attention from men, she hasn’t found the right guy just yet. She’s a big romance junkie and wants to be swept off her feet. When her longtime friend Jack starts to hint that he wants to be more than friends, Emma admits that she has feelings for him, too. As their romance develops, she worries that he will not be able to commit to the lifelong love she yearns for. 

This was a light, fun read, but the plot was a little predictable. I think the ending was a bit too rushed and some of Emma’s actions seemed out of character. Overall, though, I would recommend this book to fans of romance and chick flicks for an entertaining read. I plan to finish the series – I enjoy the glimpses into the wedding planning business and the emphasis on strong female friendships.

YES! First of all, I think it's funny that you're reviewing this series. But second, I think it's AWESOME! In the last month of my pregnancy, for some reason I only wanted to read adult chick-lit and I read the entire Bride Quartet! I wish there were more books about the girls. Predictable? For sure. But also extremely satisfying :)
