Childhood friends Mackensie, Parker, Laurel and Emmaline have formed a very successful wedding planning business together but, despite helping thousands of happy couples to organise the biggest day of their lives, all four women are unlucky in love.
Photographer Mackensie Elliot has suffered a tough childhood and has a bad relationship with her mother, which makes her wary of commitment. But when she meets Carter Maguire, she can't stop herself falling for him, although his ex-girlfriend is prepared to play dirty to keep him. Mackensie soon realises she has to put her past demons to rest in order to find lasting love . . .
The frighteningly prolific Roberts (see also Black Hills, reviewed on page 42) kicks off a frothy series about four friends who form an all-inclusive wedding service called Vows. Mackensie Mac Elliot loves capturing happy and playful moments with her camera, but her own life is all about work until she meets English teacher Carter Maguire. He s escorting his bride-to-be sister to a meeting with the Vows team and recognizes Mac as the girl he crushed out on in high school. Funny sparks fly: he s a geeky guy who quotes Shakespeare, she s a trendy workaholic who loves shoes. He s crazy about her, which makes him verbally clumsy and, to Mac, charming, though she s saddled with a needy mother, an absent father and difficulties with both that make falling in love complicated. Roberts pulls off a nice switch in making the woman afraid of saying I do, and her gentle humor and likable cast will immediately endear this series to readers.

I absolutely loved this book along with the whole quartet by this amazing author . Especially because Mackensie is my favourite girl in the quartet and her and Carter's love story is one of my favourites from any book that I've ever read!
