First of all, I have to state that I respect Nora Roberts' work and usually enjoy her books immensely. Most of the time I like her characters and find them fairly sympathetic.
This time, not so much.
****SPOILERS AHOY****

Bone to pick number 1: Emma, hereafter to be known as Idiot Girl, gets involved with a commitment-phobe (Our Hero) and is then stupid enough to start wanting marriage after FOUR MONTHS of dating. What planet is this girl from? Is she a masochist or a moron? Personally, I have her pegged as both.

Number 2: When Idiot Girl gets the key to her boyfriend's place from his secretary (he has no idea) and proceeds to girlify his house and the poor bastard comes home from a very hard day at work, feeling like crap and then horrified by the flowers and ABBA permeating his personal space, she throws a hissy fit because he's not appropriately grateful and dumps him. The we're supposed to feel sorry for her. Please.

Number 3: Idiot Girl's friends, who are all clearly as stupid as she is, refuse to allow Our Hero to apologise to her for his lousy behaviour and treat HIM like the bad guy for not wanting to rush into commitment FOUR MONTHS INTO THE RELATIONSHIP. What gets me is that by the tone of the writing, we're clearly supposed to admire these women for treating Idiot Girl like a baby and Our Hero like a cruel, heartless bastard.

I cannot for the life of me understand how anyone could read this and not want to bludgeon the protagonist and her friends, although Mac is somewhat okay. Nora Roberts needs to get back on track and write some likeable characters, because her Bride Quartet is beginning to suck. For the first time since picking up my first NR book I am not going to bother finishing one of her series.

Bed of Roses is more of the same as vision in white. The friendships remain strong between the girls and they stand up for each other even to other loved family members. This was VERY predictable all the way to the end, and I am sure the next two books in the series will be too, but I still loved reading the book. I got through it quickly; I'm a sucker for a good romance novel! I like all the details about the flowers, wedding's and even the evil bride stories. The love and admiration that blossoms between Emma and Jack was very sweet and I was routing for them both to end up happy together! Again I found parts of this book to be pretty funny, and I enjoyed the different aspects between the guys and girls (ie. each individual relationship to one another). I hope in the next 2 books somehow maybe the "girls" relationships will be tested... just something not expected maybe?!?!?!

Nora Roberts delivers!!! I love reading Nora Roberts because her characters are human and rich in character. I love the dialogue and the humour in her writing. I can always count on several chuckles while reading her books.

I never thought that Bed of Roses could possibly be better than Vision in White but I was completely mistaken.

I cannot fathom how I'm going to wait for the stories of Lauren and Parker.
