Book description: "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."
My review: I really enjoyed reading this book. The stories of two women from the same town whose lives are entertwined by a wedding shop made for a great storyline. A spattering of unexpected twists and turns kept me engaged in this story and quickly turning pages to see what would happen next. The characters were well-developed and felt like family by the time the book was finished. I look forward to reading The Wedding Chapel, which is the first book in this series. If it is anything like this book, I will be captivated from beginning to end. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from the publisher through the Booklook Blogger Program.
