Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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 80 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.

    "When you need romance"

    Romance stories have become so coarse of late . I love story where I don't have to go into the bedroom and be fed every detail. I just want the Falling in Love Part along with a very good story. Thank you. This is one of my favorites.

    "Typical & trite"

    I really tried to give this book a chance, but the story fell as flat and lifeless as the narrators voice after chapter 12. Cardboard, stereotypical characters - stilted conversation and a predictable plot made this a difficult read. Do your self a favor & pass this one by.

    "Not good quality audio"

    I could not get through it. I will have to go back and read the book. The performer's voice was grating. Between the accent, pronunciation, and possibly the recording quality, it wasn't enjoyable to listen to.

    Story
    "Not bad..."

    The overall story isn't bad. It's actually pretty decent. I just had a hard time with the narrator. I almost stopped listening to it a few times because it was so difficult to tolerate her. She has no inflection in her voice. You can definitely tell she is reading. She doesn't draw you in to the story. It almost sounds like it's her first time narrating. There is also a heavy religious aspect to the book. I don't mind some of it but in places it felt it was just jammed in to get it in the book. I did really like the parallel lives of the two women who lived during different time periods.

    Story
    "Good have overall been better. :("

    The narrator was awful. Her voice for different characters were barely noticeable, if at all. It was as if she was at home reading to herself and not a actress acting a book out.
    The story was a reference to sister hood of the traveling pants and a very bad reference of that.
    The sad part is that it had a good bases of great story, but I felt they tried to hard to make a Christian based book with cheesy bygone era writing.
    To sum it up......
    The entire time I listened to this, I couldn't wait to review it. It's not a book that I couldn't put down. 😁 I was ready for it to be over!
