Publisher's Description

From New York Times bestselling 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 eighty 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.

Editorial Reviews

'Hauck (The Wedding Dress) seamlessly switches back and forth in this redeeming tale of a shop with healing powers for the soul. As Cora and Haley search for solace and love, they find peace in the community of the charming shop. Hauck succeeds at blending similar themes across the time periods, grounding the plot twists in the main characters’ search for redemption and a reinvigoration of their wavering faith. In the third of her winsome wedding-themed standalone novels, Hauck focuses on the power of community to heal a broken heart. '
4 stars. 'In The Wedding Shop, the storyline alternates between past and present, engrossing the reader in both timelines. There are certain elements that are more obvious to the reader than to the characters, and it can get slightly frustrating waiting for the characters to get a clue. However, this is short lived, and the ways that God's provision is shown is heartwarming and can even increase the reader's faith. The weaving in of characters and plot points from The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel adds depth and meaning to the gorgeously rendered tale.'

    Another Great Read

    5 stars- I loved this book. Rachel Hauck once again does such a great job of weaving a touching story that spans generations. Haley Morgan feels inexplicably drawn to the abandoned old wedding shop in town where she and her best friend Tammy used to play as kids. As the owner of The Wedding Shop, over the years Cora Scott helped countless women look beautiful on their wedding day. Generations apart, how do the stories of these two women have anything to do with each other?

    I enjoy reading Rachels books because I always know she is going to tell a compelling and well written story full of heart, emotion and meaningful life lessons. She also never fails to include just the right amount of sigh worthy romance.

    Plus, I enjoyed revisiting characters from some of Rachels other books, The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel. They tied in beautifully with the story.

    I would highly recommend this book for a wonderful read. I received a copy of this book from the publisher for an honest review.

    The Wedding Shop by Rachel Hauck although third in a series with The Wedding Dress and The Wedding Chapel preceding this one, is easily a stand alone book. Cora and Haley are two of the main characters and readers follow their parallel lives through the connection of the wedding shop. Haley is the contemporary character and she is trying to fulfill a childhood dream, one she pinky promise shared with her best friend, to reopen the shop. Can she even buy the shop or will it be razed for a parking lot? Can she raise the money she needs? And just what is in the locked room? The author does a great job of keeping interest as she goes back and forth through time to tell the stories of Cora and Haley's and the men in their lives. The characters are strong and realistic, the story flows well with a few twists and turns and revelations of secrets long held. Faith in God to work thing out, forgiveness and restoration are key themes throughout the story. I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

    I borrowed a copy of the book from the public library.

    Theres nothing like a book which takes two seemingly different stories and weaves them seamlessly together to create something truely special.

    Cora Scott inherits a bridal shop from her aunt and transforms into a renowned place all brides dream of patronising to ensure their special day is perfect. Cora meanwhile is convinced that her one true love will return from captaining a river boat any day now. But weeks turn to months and then even years and still little to no sign of him. Was his word really true? And might there be another opportunity at love far closer than she ever dreamed.

    Fast forward 80 odd years and we find former military woman Hayley Morgan and a dream to reopen the fabled bridal shop. But time has not been kind to the old shop which is now derelict and long forgotten. Can Haleys dream really become a reality or are their secrets buried too deep to ever be discovered.

    This was such a magical tale - and both time periods worked a charm to carry the tale along. A real curl up and enjoy kind of book.

    Thanks again to the Fiction Guild for providing a complimentary copy for review - all opinions are my own.

    Alright, check the dates, I admit it - I pigged out and devoured this book in ONE day! Just couldn't put it down; it made a perfect companion on a cross-country flight. I was eager for this last installment in Hauck's series, and couldn't imagine it living up to the Wedding Dress and Wedding Chapel, but it did. Loved the intertwining love stories decades apart, but centered on the same address... the wedding shop of little Heart's Bend, Tennessee. Cora and Birch won my heart! The details so skillfully researched and off-handedly written made me feel I was right there in the 1930's. So relieved that both Cora and Haley ditched the frauds who pursued them, and found their true loves.

    One of my favorite quotes (and there were plenty) was from one of Cora's many clients who came out of the woodwork to support Haley when she wanted to refurbish the old wedding shop. Returning a now-vintage dress loaned to her mother decades earlier, Mrs. Peabody can see between Cole and Haley the sparks that neither of them wanted to acknowledge. When they protested that they were "friends, just friends," she replied, "Friends make the best lovers." My experience exactly!

    I received a copy of this book through the Fiction Guild in exchange for my honest review - but I had already bought one myself, so consider that proof of my enthusiastic endorsement. This "story within a story" is a real treasure you won't want to miss.

    WOW! Another home run in this series. I love the dual time line, and Rachel Hauck does an excellent job. The characters are relevant and I love the historical aspect. I love when Haley told Cole about a woman preacher that said, "The problem," she said "is most people talk as if we will demand an account from a God one day. But the harsh reality is God will demand an account from us. He will owe us nothing but justice." What beautiful truths are in this book that make you think. I love the scene when Haley tries on a wedding gown in Charlotte's shop and what unfolds made me weep. Beautifully written and it reaches out and draws you in, so much so that you stay up way to late as you can't put it down. It leaves you thinking afterward of Cora, Birch, Haley, and Cole for days. This is a book that you will want to revisit.

    I was given a complimentary copy from Thomas Nelson & Zondervan Fiction Guild. The review and opinions are my own and was not required.
