Book Review: "The Wedding Shop"

Rachel Hauck's The Wedding Shop is full of sweet surprises as a wedding shop should be. It's the story of former Air Force Captain Haley Morgan, a young woman who has recently suffered the worst disappointment of her life. Wanting to start fresh, she returns home to Heart's Bend, Tennessee, to live with her parents and in the shadow of four older and ultra-successful brothers, desperate to find a new dream.

Instead, she returns to an old one, a childhood pinky promise with her best friend, recently deceased. Haley decides to honor her friend's memory by reopening the town's historic wedding shop.

As Haley works her way through obstacles to do this, the story flashes back to previous shop's owner, Cora Scott. This young woman, determined to help brides have memorable days in spite of the Great Depression, longs to be a bride herself. She's waiting on a charming river boat captain while another suitor waits on her.

Though this book stands alone, readers will love meeting characters from a few of Hauck's previous books, The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel with a touch of The Royal Wedding Series thrown in. Hauck ties them all together beautifully as she gives Haley her own, perfect fit fairy tale.

I thank Zondervan for sending me a complimentary copy of this book for an honest review.
