First Line: Grief came in waves, hard and choppy, buffeting and breaking the heart.
The Bride quartet series follows four best friends – Mackensie, Emma, Laurel, and Parker – through their love stories. When they played wedding day as children, they never dreamed they would one day own a successful wedding business named Vows. Happy Ever After follows Parker Brown, the ring leader of the four friends.
Parker Brown is extremely organized, prompt, and always put together, so when she falls for her brother’s friend and mechanic, Malcolm Kavanaugh, she is caught off guard. Parker has become very good at making others happy, but struggles when it comes to her own happiness and romance. She has a hard time figuring out Mal because he is not exactly an open book, but Parker figures out how to peel back the layers. Malcolm realizes that Parker has made him a better person and is the one he wants to spend his life with. At times their relationship is aggravating, and at others it’s amusing. This is a beautiful and honest love story of two people taking a risk and betting on love.
I was reluctant to start this book as I did not want this series to end. You fall in love with the characters and will feel like the girls could be your friends. If you have never thought about being a wedding planner, you will after reading the Bride Quartet. If you’re a hopeless romantic, you will love reading this feel-good series.
Peace, Love, and Books,
