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:
The Wedding Chapel is the first book by Rachel Hauck that I've read.  To say the least, I was blown away!  Hauck's cast of characters and the way their lives intertwined with one another make for a very compelling read.  The stories of Taylor and Jack, Jimmy and Collette, Peg and the place of Heart's Bend, TN are filled with crises of faith, love, hope and the beauty of reconciliation.  Hauck keeps readers riveted and turning pages with a thread of suspense and masterfully tells the story of a wedding chapel hid away in TN.  The revelations are surprising as Hauck tells the story switching flawlessly between the past and the present.  Don't miss this endearing story!  Your heart will be encouraged.
