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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“In The Wedding Shop, the story line alternates between past and present, engrossing the reader in both timelines…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.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“[A] redeeming tale of a shop with healing powers for the soul…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.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Windy Lanzl’s Southern accent enhances this sweet story of love and faith.” AudioFile
“So full of heart and heartache and redemption, this book is the one you read long into the night, until the characters become your friends, and Heart’s Bend, Tennessee, your second hometown.” Beatriz Williams, author of A Certain Age
