Book Review: The Wedding Chapel

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

For sixty years, a wedding chapel sat silent, waiting for love. But times have changed and the hour has come when it just might be too late.

Retired hall-of-fame football coach Jimmy "Coach" Westbrook never imagined anything would come of his labor of love---the wedding chapel he built for Collette Greer, the woman he fell for back in '49. But now an offer has come to turn the chapel into what it was meant to be---a place for love---and Jimmy sees no reason to hang onto his dream any longer.

Photographer Taylor Branson is trying to make a life for herself in New York. Leaving her hometown of Heart's Bend, Tennessee, she put a lot of things behind her, including her family's abysmal marriage rate. But love surprises her when she falls head-over-heels for Jack Forester, a top ad man. Their whirlwind romance results in an elopement, and a mountain of doubt. Jack, while genuine in his love for Taylor, can never seem to overcome his own demons to find the words of his heart.

When Taylor takes an assignment in Heart's Bend, the job does more than send her back to her hometown, but into a world of family secrets buried beneath the sands of time.

When Taylor's journey intersects with Coach's, they rediscover the heartbeat of their dreams and that the love they long to hold is right in front of them. And worth every waiting moment.

My Opinion

I have absolutely LOVED every single book from Rachel Hauck! So I was so excited to read her new book, The Wedding Chapel. I was immediately drawn into the story line. However, there are a lot of characters to keep track of in this book and they are switch off telling their stories throughout the book. So, you do have to stay on top of remembering who is who and what all their stories are to really understand the book. It did seem to get too much at some points but overall I really loved the story line, the characters and their stories and the ending! :)

Overall, it wasn't my favorite book of Hauck's but still overall a great book! I can't wait to read more from Rachel Hauck in the future!
