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.

    Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.

    "A delightful and inspiring story of faith and love"

    I still like her previous book, The Wedding Dress, better. However, it was still an enjoyable listen. The narrator was not my favorite, but I am not exactly sure why. Just my personal preference.

    Story
    "Almost as Wonderful as the Wedding Chapel"
    If you could sum up The Wedding Shop in three words, what would they be?

    Worth the slow start!Rachel Hauck is one of my favorite authors. The Weddig Shop had me worried on the first few chapters. They were slow. When we met Haley Morgan as she returned to Heart's Bend and learned of her desire to open the Wedding Shop. Haley, Tammy and the boy between them, Cora and Berch and the characters from the 1930s blended into timeless love stories and had me hooked once again. Equal to the Wedding Dress and almost as brilliant as the Wedding Chapel, the Wedding Shop is a great read. Rachel Hauck blends the past and present into excellent plots. I hope she picks a new topic and weaves her magic.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cole remained the hero throughout the story--supportive, trusting, giving, coming to the rescue, and Christian sexy.


    Have you listened to any of Windy Lanzl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Lanzi doesn't perform only reads in the same voice. I do like her voice but would like to hear her create the characters with pitch and diction.

    "5 stars is not enough!"

    I cannot express how much I love this book, as well as the 2 before it (The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel). I love the way Rachel Hauck goes back and forth between the past and the present and pulls the story together. I definitely didn't expect the twist at the end! I highly recommend this book and hope there will be another "Wedding" book!!

    "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.
