The women at Vows - a wedding planning company in Connecticut - make it their business to create memorable events for couples sealing their bonds. And though the bonds among Parker, Emma, Mac, and Laurel may not be official, they are very real - and equally worthy of celebration.
Mackensie Elliot's experience with her broken family has convinced her the only way to make happiness last is to take a picture of it. She does just that at Vows - where her photos, Laurel's cakes, Emma's flowers, and Parker's almost frightening organizational skills combine for a flourishing business. As a bonus, the four friends are able to live on the grounds of Parker's sprawling family estate, where the weddings and other events are staged. Sometimes it means dealing with drama - but even the worst mother-of-the-bridezilla can't compare to Mac's own manipulative mom. Every time Mac talks to her she winds up drained - and so does her bank account.
What helps distract her is slightly-geeky, slightly-klutzy, but oh-so-cute English teacher Carter Maguire. Mac's enjoying the vibe with him - and has no intention of ruining it by making the same mistake her mother makes again and again: getting married. But as the women of Vows band together to score a major client, and Mac nears the breaking point with her mother, she begins to wonder if it's time to come out from behind the camera, and put herself in the picture.

I loved it! Great read for commuting in the car. I found my self parked out in front of the house wanting to hear more. I agree....at times the voice was robotish but easy to over look. :)
good book, terrible narrator
I could hardly focus on the book because the narrator had such a strange child-like voice...
very good book and well read!
I have to disagree with the other reviews. in the begining of the story the main character was a little girl, and by the second chapter a woman. The narator has a lovely voice, and does an excellent job with different character voices. You have to get through the first couple of chapters. It is a slow starter, and I sensse that the narator felt that too. I am not into trashy romance novels, so the sex scenes shocked me and I had to stop listening when my kids were in the room despite the fact that I was using my ear buds. Great wonderful book! Great narator! I can't wait to hear more from this author!!!
