Overview

The Wedding Dress Christmas

December comes to quaint Hearts Bend, Tennessee, with a blanket of white and the glitter of Christmas lights.

For JoJo Castle there is no place like home. Her onetime love of adventure ended when her life in the big city came crashing down. Now that she's home, she never wants to leave again.

Country music sensation Buck Mathews has charmed the world with his smile and his music. However, news of his mother's illness brought him home to Hearts Bend for the holiday season.

Working with her cousin Haley in The Wedding Shop, JoJo has no aspirations of love. But when her high school crush returns to town, her buried feelings surface.

Busy with his career, Buck hasn't had time for family and friends, much less love. Seeing JoJo in The Wedding Shop reminds him there are things more important than his career.

But JoJo and Buck have opposing life goals, and there's no middle ground. Can love, especially the kind that touches hearts at Christmas, overcome her fears and his quest for greatness?

With the help of a very special wedding dress, there just might be a Christmas miracle.

“I'll put on some Bing and we can believe for a marvelous, miraculous, glorious Christmas season.” Oh my goodness, I love Rachel Hauck’s books. When she announced on her Facebook page that she was planning to write a Christmas book, I had fingers and toes crossed that it would be set in Hearts Bend. Forget Mayberry, forget Stars Hollow . . . I want to live in Hearts Bend. I thoroughly enjoyed every line of this sweet, beautiful love story and didn’t want it to end. The town is filled with fun, quirky characters and lots of Christmassy traditions that will get your heart and mind excited for the season. There’s also a lovely lesson about love being larger and stronger than fear, which is a reminder that I always need to hear. And while I agree that the author does an excellent job of treating this one as a stand-alone book, you’ll enjoy it that much more if you do read the other three in the wedding series (The Wedding Shop is my favorite). Either way, this book is sure to put you in a joyful, ready-for-anything mood just in time for Christmas. Highly recommend this book and ALWAYS this author!

A Rachel Hauck book releasing is a book I will guarantee you won't want to miss. So let me tell you about this do not miss book while reading it you will feel happy and light so I suggest you have a delicious pastry with you and a warm drink . You will also feel this is a magical book because it really is, fairy dust and fairy lights are surely sprinkled upon it's pages. A special Christmas time wedding that almost didn't happen but it did, the fear is no longer! A very special vintage wedding dress and an old battered trunk will keep you mesmerized as you read. The end of the book advises readers to read her earlier release "The Wedding Dress." I remember how magical that book made me feel as well and I can't wait to go back and reread it. This has to be one of my absolute favorite books this year! Published October 22nd 2019 by Hauck House. I was given a complimentary copy. Thank you. All opinions expressed are my own.

Get ready--this charming novella will steal your heart and give you that Hallmark Christmas feeling. Wow! I fell in love with the story, the setting, the developed relationships that have woven through Hauck's Wedding Dress novels..it was a winner for me! Also, Hallmark Channel, can you get this movie in the works already?! JoJo and Buck have a complicated history with each other and JoJo has always had a thing for Buck. But now she's the quintessential hometown girl again and he is a rising country star poised for a huge opportunity. Can a relationship blossom? What is holding JoJo back from letting go and falling in love? Hauck is a master at character development, and this novella is no exception. I have yet to read a book of hers that I haven't thouroughly enjoyed and hope that this story continues in the future. That wedding dress is spectacular, and the idea that a dress could almost act as a character...yes, please! So, folks, don't count this novella out--you get the same quality writing and characters to fall in love with as usual! I absolutely loved the little touches that bring the reader to understand that there is no fear in love. (1 John 4:18) Hauck is not afraid to deal with tough topics and difficult issues of real life, and for that I am grateful. To end up with a satisfying ending that also doesn't hide the fact that there will always be challenges in this life is one of the reasons I love Rachel's work. ( And the purple shirt guy will be familiar to readers once they understand how he works. ;) ) I was an early reader, thanks to BookFunnel and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

If you haven’t experienced the magic of the Wedding Dress you will want to so that you can also read the magic of the Wedding Dress Christmas. Rachel Hauck’s story telling draws you into the world of her books and makes you feel like you never want the story to end. I loved this love story of JoJo and Buck and the next bride to wear the wedding dress. It is a hometown holiday book and one you won’t be able to put down. Love, redemption and honesty that win out in this story and I want to know what happens further in JoJo and Buck’s story by the end. It ends perfectly though and you will fall in love with these characters. Enjoy!

“Everything she needed, everyone she loved, was right here in Hearts Bend. And The Wedding Shop was her favorite place in town. Especially at Christmas.” Author Rachel Hauck pens a delightful return to Hearts Bend, Tennessee in The Wedding Dress Christmas. The vintage wedding dress from 1912 is timeless and elegant and fits the bride perfectly no matter her size. This novella is the perfect addition to Rachel Hauck’s Wedding Collection series. JoJo Castle is working in The Wedding Shop in Hearts Bend, when country superstar Buck Mathews returns home for the holidays, and feelings from the past resurface for these two former high school friends. True love and a vintage wedding dress make this a Hearts Bend Christmas to remember. Rachel Hauck’s ability to seamlessly incorporate the faith elements into the storyline and create wonderfully flawed characters make her books favorites among readers of inspirational fiction. The Wedding Dress Christmas is highly recommended for readers of contemporary romance, and those who enjoy the rich history of a timeless heirloom passed on through the years. I can’t wait for Rachel Hauck’s next release. *I received a complimentary copy of this novella from the author/publisher and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine. “The man who’d set the world on fire with his velvet voice and rocking guitar was the same boy who’d set her heart ablaze all those years ago.”

'Heaven is breaking into our world.' I never miss a Rachel Hauck book. Never. When I open a new book by her, I feel like I've drifted into the sublime world of peace, great spiritual connections and characters that just take up residence in my heart. When I heard she was doing a Christmas novella based on her Wedding Dress book, I was so excited to read it. And I was definitely not disappointed. JoJo Castle has let fear take root in her heart and it has mushroomed until she now denies herself great happiness with the man she has loved since she was in school. Buck Mathews has always loved JoJo as well, but hasn't really realized it. But there is a big obstacle standing in their way. Can they find a way around it? God has some surprises for this precious couple. Hauck brings it once again with her trademark touch of the Divine in each book she writes. It's so wonderful to see this in her books. It is incredibly precious to me. It's amazing to see how she lets God work in her books and the lives on her characters. I read this one in a few hours. Loved every moment. I highly recommend this novella. *My thanks to the author for a preview copy of this book. The opinions stated here are entirely my own.

Rachel brings her own special brand of magic and Divine in this sweet novella! If you are a fan of the "Royal Wedding" Series by her you will be a fan of this one. I highly recommend it!

The Wedding Dress Christmas has all the feels that Rachel Hauck is known for. JoJo and Buck may well become my new favorite couple. Buck is such a gentleman; a swoon-worthy singer who has been in love with JoJo for many years. JoJo is a strong, confident woman who has been crippled by fear and is trying to find peace in her hometown. All is well until Buck returns home and JoJo cannot stay in her status quo hiding place anymore. Rachel has such a beautiful way of weaving the Divine throughout her stories and in this story, the Divine presence is breathtaking. You will not want to miss how these two hearts respond to God's gift of love.
