I haven't done a Library Loot post in several weeks since I had so many books out already and was going a little crazy with due dates all over the calendar. I ended up returning two books tonight that I didn't get around to finishing and I had no more renewals left in the system. If I get the chance over the weekend, I'm going back for those two books because even though I left them sitting in a pile unread for so many weeks, it turns out I really want to read them!
I was able to pick up one book tonight that has had me waiting ever so impatiently on the holds list for a couple of weeks now:
Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts
The Bride Quartet, Book Three
In this contemporary series, four childhood friends--Parker, Emma, Laurel and Mac--own and operate their very own wedding planning business called Vows. Each of the four women brings a unique specialty to the business--wedding planner extraordinaire, florist, creator of wedding cake masterpieces and photographer. The stories revolve around their friendships, their business and of course, their love lives as each book tells a happily ever after story for each of the four women. Savor the Moment is Laurel's story and if you may guess from the cover, she creates the wedding cakes. Her love interest is Parker's brother Delaney who has been like a brother to all four women since childhood, but Laurel doesn't see him that way. She's had a secret infatuation with Del for years. In a quicksilver mood, Laurel kisses Del and something tells me their relationship takes on a whole new dynamic.
How fun that I'm currently reading two very different books by Nora Roberts. Savor the Moment (May 2010) is a contemporary story of friendship and romance and Loyalty In Death (October 1999) is a suspenseful, futuristic murder mystery written under Roberts' pen name J.D. Robb.
Do you have a favorite author who writes novels in two fairly different genres like Nora Roberts does?
