Cover of The MacGregor Brides by Nora Roberts

Nonagenarian Daniel MacGregor refuses to wait any longer for his three career-minded granddaughters to make time for love, and, more importantly, marriage and grandbabies. With only the best of intentions, he meddles in each of their lives, finding Laura, Gwendolyn and Julia the man of their dreams. The only problem is that the three cousins don't want or need their grandfather's help, and love is the last thing on their minds. Daniel MacGregor knows his granddaughters so well, however, that they don't realize what he is planning until it is too late.

Once again, Nora Roberts weaves a contemporary love story densely populated with strong new characters and recurring favorites. The tight construction of this well-plotted novel lets even first time readers feel they are acquainted with the extended MacGregor family. Not only does the author deftly describe three love stories in The MacGregor Brides, Roberts shows how to keep the love alive in a marriage despite the challenge of combining a successful career with motherhood - one day at time! Highly recommended, this novel is both entertaining and inspiring.
