I finished off the Bride Quartet with Happy Ever After. The symmetry of the couples and their stories is one of the things I love about Nora Roberts’s books. Plus, we got the bonus of Mac and Carter’s wedding.
Malcolm Kavanaugh owns a local garage. We first hear about him when Mac has her mother’s car towed. But we first meet him when Emma has her car worked on and Mal lays into Parker, thinking she’s Emma.
Parker Brown of the Connecticut Browns knows how to work and manage a business. She’s the one tying all the wedding details together. Mal describes as a general at one point. Parker is the force behind Vows. But then it wouldn’t have worked if it had been anyone else.
Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)
In Happy Ever After, we see the continuation of Mal and Parker’s story. I mean, you had to see it coming, right? Parker kisses Mal in Emma and Jack’s story. Mal kisses Parker in Laurel and Del’s. Feelings were sure to get involved.
At the start of this one, Parker is driving home in a squall when she’s run off the road by a careless driver who continues on his merry way. While she’s not hurt, her car has not one, but two flat tires. That is why her car must get towed and how Mal convinces Parker to go for a ride on his motorcycle. All of that starts the ride of their lives.
As all Nora Roberts’ books, I absolutely love these. I adore her trilogies and quartets the most. This is the last of the Bride Quartet and it was wonderful to revisit them again. The thing I love most about romances is that you know there’s always a happy ending. If you haven’t read this and you’re a sucker for romances, you need to read it. It’s a fantastic story.

And in case you hadn’t figured it out, my plan for 2021 is to write a blog post for each book I read. Last year, I read 150 books. We’ll see how I do this year.
