The Wedding Chapel by Rachel Hauck

The Wedding Chapel
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 Review:
Talk about pulling off a masterpiece, if anyone can do it, Rachel Hauck sure did with her latest book "The Wedding Chapel." This book is phenomenal with the characters, the storytelling and her ability to weave two story lines with four points of view is a complete and overwhelming undertaking as an author. This was a very risky move, but she pulled it together well and was incredible to read. If you're looking to fall in love with a book, look no further! "The Wedding Chapel" will have you saying "I do" to two sets of couples who lives are not easy, that as a reader you can automatically relate to, and you'll be cheering for them the entire time. Don't worry, I won't spoil anything because you won't be able to put this book down! Go ahead and stick this book on your Christmas wish list because these characters will stay with you long after you've finished.
