The Wedding Shop

The Wedding Shop
Rachel Hauck
Cora has inherited her great-aunt's wedding shop. She's being pursued by a farmer, Birch Good. But Cora is only interested in her boat captain and is anticipating the day her returns and makes her his bride. 
Eighty years later, the shop has gone into disrepair and is set to be bulldozed to make way for a parking lot. No one is interested in resurrecting the dilapidated building, except for retired Air Force captain Haley.  Haley is resurrecting the old shop that she and her late friend, Tammy used to play in during their childhood. She knows nothing about weddings, but the memories have a powerful hold on her heart. So despite discouragement from family, friends, and the local townspeople, she purchased the building. But the restrictions and stipulations put her under a considerable time crunch and Haley still might lose the shop that is becoming so dear to her.

This was a wonderful, whimsical, fairytale like story. Told in the style that the author is now becoming well know for, it has faith, family, and a touch of the magical. Strong friendships and flowing descriptions help bring the plot together. I loved the main characters in both stories and felt like the secondary characters helped round them out. This was another great story by this author that I really enjoyed. I can't wait for her next book.

I received this book from Smith Publicity. All thoughts expressed are my own.
