"From New York Times bestselling author of The Wedding Dress comes The Wedding Shop. -- Two women separated by decades. Both set out to help others find their dreams when their own have crumbled. It's the early 1930s, but Cora Scott is walking in stride as a career woman after having inherited her great aunt's wedding shop in Heart's Bend, Tennessee, where brides come from as far away as Birmingham to experience her famed bridal treatment. Meanwhile, Cora is counting down the days until her own true love returns from the river to make her his bride. But days turn into months and months to years. All the while, Birch Good continues to woo Cora and try to show her that while he is solid and dependable, he can sweep her off her feet. More than eighty years later, former Air Force Captain Haley Morgan has returned home to Heart's Bend after finishing her commitment to military service. After the devastating death of her best friend, Tammy, and discovering the truth about the man she loved, Haley is searching for her place in life. When Haley decides to reopen the romantic but abandoned wedding shop where she and Tammy played and dreamed as children, she begins a journey of courage, mystery, and love. As Cora's and Haley's stories intertwine through time in the shadow of the beloved wedding shop, they both discover the power of their own dreams and the magic of everyday love"--… (mais)

Great story!!!

This book took me a while to read due to my crazy schedule, but I am pleased to say that I enjoyed it. The author did a fine job of intertwining the stories of Cora, Charlotte, Haley, and Cole. I may read more books by this author if they are this good. ( )

The Wedding Shop by [Hauck, Rachel]I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
This book fascinated me from the beginning. I love the way Rachel Hauck made the wedding dress shop the central character of this book. The story tells the story of Cora Scott in the 1930s. She inherited the shop from her great aunt. Brides would come from far and near to purchase their dress and receive the bridal treatment form this shop in Heart's Bend, Tennessee. Cora, however, was waiting for her love, a river captain, to return to her. She has another in the town, Birch Good who would like to be her special one.
Eighty plus years later, Haley Morgan, an Air Force Captain, decides to fulfill the promise she and Tammy, now deceased, made years ago to own and run the Wedding Shop.
The dreams and love each of these ladies found through this shop is engaging. Rachel Hauck is able to entwine these two stories effortlessly. The Christian message underlies everything without being overbearing. This is a story of forgiveness and living the life God has chosen for you.
This story of journey is highly recommended by me. ( )

I tried an audio version of this book. It had it's pros and cons. The person reading was great, her different accents and voice inflection's kept me interested the entire time. The story also was very interesting and exciting as all of Rachel Hauck books are. The problem I had, I was trying to multi-task by quilting too and I kept getting confused as to who was talking and when. If I had an actual book or Kindle I could have re-read or found the place to clarify which character was speaking. After saying all of that, I will definitely try another audio-book. I also will continue to read Rachel Hauck, she is one of very favorite writers. ( )

A tale of God's perfect timing that spans the ages.

***

She's done it again. I don't know what kind of magical mojo Rachel Hauck weaves into her stories but they get me right in the feels every time. Every. Time. Yes, I spent a good portion of this book crying...In a reflective, happy, sad, mixed-emotions and feelings kind of way. I'm pretty sure not everyone will be affected in this way, but somehow this book hit me right in a soft spot and pressed in. Deeper and deeper.

This book--and the characters journey--reminded me that God is powerful, influential, and working in this world (yes, even though it is a fictional book). It's one of the many things I admire about Rachel's writing - her ability to gently remind us of the fact that God is a BIG God and capable of doing amazing things. He's a God of miracles. I remember one line hit me especially where Haley says, "...but I'm not going to let a little thing like money stand in my way." What truth! And what a great theme--considering the fact that God's will is bigger than money or our ability to plan things out (but I digress).

This story, like The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel, is "dual time" encompassing a story from history with the present. I'm not a huge fan of this in general, but the stories have really grown on me. If I were to choose which story I liked best between Cora Scott and Haley Morgan I'm not sure that I could pick. Both were well thought out, developed, and enticing in their own right.

Haley reminded me a lot of myself - not exactly in personality, but at the core of who she is and what she focused on in this book. Her devotion to opening The Wedding Shop and her appreciation for its history is also something that resonates deep in me. I love history and want to see it cherished and preserved. I loved Cora's character and storyline, though I was frustrated with her at times for being "blind". Then again, aren't we all blind to things we don't want to see sometimes?

And the ending. *sigh* I won't share much here other than the fact that I was at around 50% one night and finished the rest of the book (staying up until 2 am) just to see what happened. And I loved it!

If you like present day romance, historical romance, or (like this book) a combination, you are going to love this book! It gives you the best of both worlds and a woven story that will pull you through until the end and have you rooting for The Wedding Shop.

I received this book for free but was under no obligation to post a review. I do so under my own motivation and the opinions I have expressed in this review are honest and entirely my own. ( )

I have fallen for many books (okay, most of the ones I read) but few have impacted my thoughts and emotions as much as this book did. I have struggled in believing that there is love out there, and though this a fictional book, the fact remains that this book gives me hope that there is love out there. This book didn’t create a love story that was unbelievable, it created a love story that is so believable that you keep pushing and striving to feel such feelings. The book gives you the feeling of love and joy, and most of all hope.

I hope that you read this book, read them all in fact. I guarantee that you will find hope in love again. That you will see that a fictional romance can feel realistic and give you the reminder needed that love does happen.
I was provided an ARC in return for my fair and honest review. ( )

To the friends of my youth, with whom I dreamed, rode bikes in the street, and created make believe worlds in our basements and bedrooms, pretending to be Mary Tyler Moore or dating an Osmond brother. We may not have seeneach other in decades, but the echoes of our laughter rebound in my heart, still.
