About The Book: The Wedding Chapel (Zondervan, November 2015)
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 Thoughts On The Book: I cannot tell you when I have loved a book more than this one. The dual plots were captivating and once I became drawn into the story lines of the characters involved I was hooked. The story starts during WWII and carries on to the present. It is a beautifully written story of what lies, deceit, and spite can do to a family. It is one of those stories that finds you crying one minute and the next moment you are laughing out loud kind of stories. This is a definite read. I loved every aspect of the story. This book was a definite 5 out of 5. I can't wait for the next Rachel Hauck book to hit the shelves. I hope it is soon.
