Book Review: "The Wedding Shop"
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.
