Vision in White by Nora Roberts

Wedding photographer Mackensie "Mac" Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be's brother . . . an encounter that has them both seeing stars.

A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac's type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends--and business partners--to see her way to her own happy ending.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t all that impressed with this latest offering from Nora Roberts. I own more books by her than anyone else, and even now I’d probably still buy anything new that she publishes, but this particular book just didn’t touch me like some of her others. I don’t know if it was that the story went by too fast, or if the ‘emotional hardship’ that had to be overcome for the relationship to work just wasn’t dramatic enough, I don’t know. Mac was a mostly sympathetic character and her romance with Carter was enjoyable, mostly because he’s so cute as the clumsy professor, but on the whole I just didn’t care. I got to the end and was surprised, because I was left with a feeling that there should be more.

Overall Feeling – Eh. Not great, not bad. Good enough to add to the collection, especially since there are a guaranteed 3 more coming.
Series – 1) Vision in White
