A Wedding Dress for the Right Bride

Charlotte is getting married. The wedding should be perfect. She owns a bridal shop. She's an inspired bridal consultant, but she can't seem to plan her wedding, or choose a dress. On an impulse, she buys an old trunk at an auction. The trunk is in need of repair. Now that she has it, she doesn't know what to do with it. It's welded shut, so she can't open it. When her wedding plans collapse, possibly because she spent a $1,000. for the trunk, Charlotte pulls herself together and goes on with her life.

Three other women have been involved with the wedding dress Charlotte finally unearths from the trunk. Through flashbacks and Charlotte's sleuthing, we meet the ladies and find how they interact with Charlotte's story.

I thought this was a terrific book. The characters were interesting and the plot intricate enough to keep you reading to find out what happens next. The author does an excellent job of telling the stories of the three brides without losing continuity by moving back and forth in time.

I recommend this book for anyone one who loves weddings, or as a gift for that special bride.

I reviewed this book as part of the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze program.
