Review: Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts

Goodreads: Since she was a little girl, Emma Grant has always loved romance. So it's really no surprise that she has found her calling as a wedding florist. She gets to play with flowers every day and work with her three best friends in the process. She couldn't ask for a better job.

And on the surface, Emma's love life seems to be thriving. Slim and sultry, she brings color into every room she enters, just like the arrangements she creates. Men swarm around her, yet she still hasn't found Mr. Right. And the last place she's looking is right under her nose.

But that's just where Jack Cooke is. He's been best friends with Parker's brother for years, which makes him practically family. The architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship. And when Emma returns his passion - kiss for blistering kiss - things start to get complicated at Vows.

Jack has never been big on commitment. Emma yearns for a lifelong love affair. If the two are to find common ground, they must trust in their history - and in their hearts. . .

Kritters Thoughts: What a great second book in the quartet! I was so excited that it was sitting on the new shelf at my new library AND it fit into the challenge!

I read it in three sittings - it was a great quick weekend read after a very long week.

OK so for my review - A great Nora Roberts read. As this is the first series and books of hers I have read, I have a preconceived notion that they would be those raunchy romance novels - sorry not a fan guys. NOPE - this was great. The sequel was just as good if not better. I had read a few books in between, which I don't usually do when reading a series, but I was able to pick up right where I left off.

I love the dynamics of the four girls and the business they have created. I get a little jealous because I would love to be the Parker (organizer) of the group.

I would recommend these books to all my lady friends. They are great quick reads that I would pass onto readers of most genres.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel (good thing there are 2 more books in the series!)

Pages: 358
