Cassie's Wedding Dress is a warm-hearted, enjoyable ride. It is the story of two people, Cassie Hinton and Jack Chambers who, though life-long friends, took diametrically different paths. At the peak of her career as a jockey, tragedy strikes and Cassie is forced to confront the failing strength of her own faith. Cassie and Jack find themselves back in each others lives, all the while fighting the reality that love, which had sparked years before, still held its flame. Through faith, friendship, internal fears and external foes, both Cassie and Jack find that life can begin again and that dreams can come true. To come into the richness and realness of the characters, especially Jack's daughter, Lara, was a delightful experience. Even the ancillary characters were wonderfully alive and added to the story with grace and charm. And, just when you thought that Cassie and Jack had finally settled into the truth of their love, turmoil erupts. I found myself wanting to dive into the story and help! Cassie's Wedding Dress is a fabulous and touching story. You will fall in love with the characters and find yourself warmly received into their world. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will look forward to more from Clare Revell.

Cassie Hinton's life is about to change¿again.
She's making a wedding dress as a window display in her brother's shop to honor the Royal Wedding celebration. She designed the dress years ago, planning to wear it to her own wedding¿someday. But a riding accident stole her leg and any hope of being a bride. The dress may as well be used for something.
But when her childhood friend and secret love, Pastor Jack Chambers, re-enters her world, Cassie begins to wonder if a normal life might be possible after all. But there's Jack's position in the church to consider. Can he retain his ministry and court a parishioner?
And even if that's possible, they must first survive a trial of completely different kind¿
Cassie's Wedding Dress is a sweet love story with an edge of suspense and a heart-rending thread of backstory, expertly woven into the storyline. Revell uses her obvious storytelling talent with flair and aplomb in this wonderful novella that packs a lot of emotion, humor, and poignancy into a minimum of space. The perfect story to curl up with on a lazy afternoon. Kudos to the author for writing like a pro!
