From back of book:
#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts cordially invites you to meet childhood friends Parker, Emma, Laurel, and Mac – the founders of Vows, one of Connecticut’s premier wedding planning companies.

Laurel McBane has always relied on her friends for support, especially when her dream of attending culinary school was almost ruined by her parents’ financial problems. Now Laurel is repaying the kindness of her friends by creating extravagantly luscious tiers of cakes and other confectionary delights that add the perfect touch to their clients’’ weddings.

As for romance, Laurel believes in it – in theory. But she’s too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that other women seem too long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker’s older brother, Delaney Brown, on whom Laurel has had a mega crush since childhood.

But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her, or so she thinks. When Laurel’s quick-silver-mood get the better of her-leading to an angry, hot, altogether mind-blowing kiss with Del – she’ll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever…

My Review:
This is a good read. It focuses mostly on Laurel. Her friendship with the other three is a part of the plot as well.

Laurel parents ended up in financial trouble and she no longer had money to go to culinary school. However, one of her friend’s parents sent her with the only catch being that she make something of herself. This is mainly a romance novel. Since childhood she had a crush on Delany Brown. Delany has always called all the friends his girls. Laurel finally has had enough and if a fit of anger and frustration she kisses Del. That kiss has changed everything and now the two must decide how to proceed.

Along the way Laurel is troubled by the fact that she doesn’t come from then type of money that Del and Parker does. She doesn’t want him to think that she is with him because of his money. This thought is egged on by the whisper people in Del’s circle and well as Mac’s cold-hearted trouble-making mother. So not only does she have to content with her changing relationship with Del but also with her occasional sense of class inferiority.

The narrator had a pleasant voice. The characters did not sound the same so it was easy to see them as different people and not just someone reading to you. The story was paced fast. Angela Dawe did a great job; I hope she read the other books in the series.
