Nora Roberts: Vision in White

Mackensie Elliot is a wedding photographer and, together with her 3 best friends, owns a wedding planning company. She meets Carter Maguire, an English teacher, when his sister hires the company for her wedding, and although they are attracted to each other, they have some problems to deal with before they can get together...

The summary looks very short, doesn't it? That's because there really aren't many obstacles in the way of true love in this book, and most of them are imagined. Still, I like the book, and I grew really fond of the hero, who has a sense of humor and is a bit clumsy and actually asks one of his pals how to behave on a date. He's such a refreshing change from the alpha know-it-all heroes that still populate much of Romancelandia. I found the heroine somewhat more problematic. She comes across as a very smart and determined and self-confident woman, but she often acts like a doormat when dealing with her bitch-from-hell mother (luckily, this changes toward the end of the book), and then she suddenly gets unreasonably jealous of Carter's ex-girlfriend. However, I was well entertained and will certainly read the next book in the series. This is a "good" book (Grade B)
