Publisher's Summary

In this sweet romance, the wedding shop offers a chance at love for those who think it might be gone for good. 

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 80 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. 

“I adored The Wedding Shop! Rachel Hauck has created a tender, nostalgic story, weaving together two pairs of star-crossed lovers from the present and the past with the magical space that connects them. So full of heart and heartache and redemption, this book is one you’ll read long into the night, until the characters become your friends, and Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, your second hometown.” (Beatriz Williams, New York Times best-selling author)

The Wedding Shop is the kind of book I love, complete with flawed yet realistic characters, dual timelines that intersect unexpectedly, a touch of magic, and a large dose of faith. Two breathtaking romances are the perfect bookends for this novel about love, forgiveness, and following your dreams. And a stunning, antique wedding dress with a secret of its own. This is more than just a good read - it’s a book to savor.” (Karen White, New York Times best-selling author)

This sweet, split-time romance is a stand-alone novel that can also be listened to as a companion novel with New York Times best seller The Wedding Dress. Includes discussion questions.

A delightful and inspiring story of faith and love

I still like her previous book, The Wedding Dress, better. However, it was still an enjoyable listen. The narrator was not my favorite, but I am not exactly sure why. Just my personal preference.

not my favorite

I just didn't like the characters as much in this book. Cora was annoying and frustratingly thick headed. I did like her mom though. I didn't really like Haley either 😕

Just NO

It is so boring. Too slow. I could not get past chapter 2.
I never give bad reviews, but I just can’t continue.
I wasted a credit!

I could have recorded this!

Fun and sweet story. However the narrator was an absolute fail! She read everything with the same inflection inclufing passages like “she yelled”.

However, I really strive to ignore the narration if I like the direction the story is going. Glad I didn’t give up. Overall, a pleasant, happy story.
