From New York Times bestselling author of The Wednesday Letters comes the completion of one family's journey to survive their past and forge their own future. With no more secrets . . .

When Noah Cooper bumps into Rachel, it's love at first sight—at least for Noah. Rachel isn't so sure. But Noah's charm pays off, and he introduces his bride-to-be to a special Cooper family tradition—the wedding letters. Family and friends of the happy couple are invited to send letters of advice on love, life, and happiness.

However, when a dark secret from Rachel's past surfaces, will Noah and his parents, Malcolm and Rain, be able to help save the wedding from disaster? And what about the scrapbook of wedding letters that have already been gathered? Could a single letter really provide the answer that will bring Rachel back?

Set against the backdrop of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, The Wedding Letters will remind you that sometimes, no matter the secrets of years' past, two hearts can still be one. And by the final page, you might just want to create your own book of wedding letters for someone you love.

Killing him was unavoidable.

Noah saw the fat squirrel plop off the curb and lumber like a sumo wrestler across Ox Road. The animal reached the center line before doubling back into the path of Noah’s gold 2006 Dodge Dakota.

“Dude!” Noah shouted above the thuds and clunks. He yanked the wheel to the right much harder than he intended. First he thumped the squirrel, then he hopped the crumbling low curb, before finally hitting a woman riding a bright green mountain bike.

He was pale and mumbling a few of his mother’s replacement swear words as he jumped out of the truck. “Are you OK?”

The woman, lying some five feet from the front right corner of the truck, rolled onto her back, one foot stuck between the bike’s rear tire and the chain. Her hand went to a bleeding raspberry on her left cheek. One temple of a cracked pair of Oakley sunglasses poked out from under her bike helmet.

“Are you all right? I am so sorry. I totally did not see you.” He pulled his cell phone from his pocket and dialed 911.

The woman unhooked her helmet below her chin and tossed it to the side. “Oh, really?” she said. She struggled to remove her backpack from both shoulders. . . . She sat up, braced herself with her palms flat on the sidewalk, and looked up at the sky. “Really God? Today? Really?”

Noah sat near her. “Take a deep breath. I feel so terrible. My gosh. Really terrible. The ambulance should be here soon.” He stuck his hand out. “I’m sorry, I’m Noah Cooper. I didn’t get your name.”

“When exactly would you have gotten my name? Before or after running me down?” She rubbed her hands together, dislodging tiny pebbles, before shaking his hand. “Rachel.” She held his hand firmly an extra beat before adding, “And you nearly killed me.”

“Yeah, sorry, I realize that.” He pointed to the lump of sumo squirrel in the road. “I was avoiding him.”

One thing Jason knows how to do is write meaningful books which start traditions that change people's lives. Starting with Christmas Jars on to Wednesday Letters, and now the Wedding Letters, you find yourself really loving the characters and the story. Then after you read the book, you find yourself wanting to start new family traditions of your own. For years now, my family has given away Christmas Jars. I only wish someone had put together the Wedding Letters for my wedding! I highly recommend this book, it's an easy, fast, fun, and engaging book.

I received an ARC from the Book Expo in NYC. While the rep explained this was a follow-up to a previous NYT Best selling novel, she promised I didn¿t have to read the first book to enjoy the second. Sounds great! The storyline sounded wonderful, pretty unique considering the overdone fantasy, werewolf, vampire, and sci-fi novels. I did no research on Mr. Wright or the Wednesday Letters and gleefully immersed myself into the Wedding Letters. Then the eye rolling began¿ I feel terrible writing this but the writing was flat. There was no depth, the characters were underdeveloped, and the dialog was a gag-fest. I won¿t give direct quotes from the book because it is an ARC, but there were some instances where the writer wrote like a man trying to think like a woman and it really failed miserably. Honestly, it was cringe worthy. Ack!Maybe it was me? Perhaps it wasn¿t completely edited? I mean I was reading an ARC, after all. So I began reading the reviews on The Wednesday Letters¿hundreds of glowing reviews, all praising this effervescent story. Then I hit the one and two star ratings and BAM! No, I wasn¿t missing something. Many readers had similar complaints.I wanted to love this story because there was really so much potential. But, it was laborious at best. I kept thinking to myself ¿Why are you wasting your time reading this drivel when there are so many more interesting books on your nightstand?¿ I hate giving up on books, I really do. And I really hate giving bad star ratings. But I have to honestly suggest passing up on this book. There are sooo many great reads out there right now, don¿t waste your time on this one. Sorry.

After the first book "Wednesdays Letter" which is an excellent book about family and how life may not be what the children believed their life to be, in the sight of their parents. Their eyes and hearts are open to a truth. Now it is time for change once again. I Loved this book. It deals with the struggles of the past lies and the struggle of the future. Just excellent.

It must be the hopeless romantic in me, but I could barely keep from tearing up throughout this book. A great, quick read, and an even better follow up to the authors Wednesday Letters novel. An heartwarming story of a family that I wish I could marry into one day.

After the Wednesday Letters, I just had higher expectations for this book. The story just really seemed lacking to me. I love the idea of the Wedding Letters and the website with the promos is really sweet. However, the story itself was just missing substance. I was disappointed.
