The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck

Friday, July 29, 2016







Two women separated by decades. Both set out to help others find their dreams when their own have crumbled.


It’s the 1930s, and Cora is taking the reins at her family’s wedding shop in Heart’s Bend, Tennessee. Brides come from far away to be doted on by Cora and her family while they find the perfect wedding dress. Meanwhile, Cora has found her true love, Rufus, a riverboat captain. Cora counts the days until his return from the river, and she continues to wait for him as days turn into months and months turn into years. When he finally returns, she receives the shock of a lifetime: he is married to another. Nursing her heartbreak, she must find a way to continue pouring her heart into the hopes and dreams of the brides who visit her shop, all while wondering if she will ever find true love or if it has passed her by.


In present day, Haley has finished her time as a soldier, and suffering from PTSD, wants nothing to do with the heartbreak of this world. She sets off for Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, and in order to honor the memory of a fallen friend, she takes on the task of reopening an abandoned and long-forgotten wedding shop. Perhaps through helping others, she can forget the pain and disappointment in her own life.


Haley isn’t looking for love, but when her friend’s former fiancé becomes involved in the shop’s renovations, they both find that healing and restoration can perhaps happen in their lives too.

My Thoughts~

Rachel's new book ties the Wedding Dress, and the Wedding Chapel together. Having read both of those books I was immediately pulled into the story. I loved how the story alternated between the 1930's and present day. I got caught up in the stories of the different brides and remembered trying on my wedding gown for the first time. You will cheer for both Haley and Cora hoping they find their true love. I loved every minute of this book and stayed up way past my bedtime reading it. Highly recommended!!
