TITLE: BED OF ROSES
AUTHOR: NORA ROBERTS
Details: no. 2 Bride Quartet
This is the story of Emmaline Grant, the florist in Vows, the wedding company she runs with her three friends.
From a very early age, Emma has been a true romantic, dreaming of love and devotion that last a life time, like the love her parents share. Beautiful and sexy, Emma gets lots of male attention, but so far love has eluded her.
Jack Cooke has been a friend of Emma and her friends for years. And when he and Emma suddenly find themselves attracted to each other they have to make a few adjustments.
Jack however doesn't believe in happy ever after, which is the only thing Emma will settle for. But if their romance were to fail, it wouldn't be only their friendship under threat. It would also severly challange the dynamics in the group of friends they both belong to.
This is Roberts at her best. Only she can write books where it doesn't matter that I know the ending before I even start reading it. It's the journey towards that ending, romantic, exciting and sexy, that makes these books such fun.
This was also the perfect book to read while recuperating after a minor operation; totally engrossing and not too demanding on my somewhat flighty mind.
The third book in this quartet will be out in just a few months, and I'm already looking forward to it.
