A Vicarage Wedding
Blurb: Rachel Holley has always dreamed of a wedding—the white dress, the fairy tale, and of course, the happily-ever-after. But when her fiancé breaks it off the night before, claiming she doesn’t love him, Rachel’s fairy tale ends in ashes.
Homeless, hopeless, and feeling like her life has been completely derailed, Rachel must start over in all sorts of ways—and hold her head up high in the fishbowl of her tiny village. The last person she expects to become a friend is Sam West, the taciturn owner of The Bell, Thornthwaite’s rougher pub, and a little rough around the edges of himself.
But as Rachel gets to know Sam, and sees him caring for his orphaned nephew, she finds herself drawn to this enigmatic man. Nothing about Sam is what Rachel expected in a life partner, and yet she can’t deny their increasing closeness. But can love flourish on the rebound? And will there be a vicarage wedding after all?

I just love this series. I like how it is set in another place that almost at times seems back in time, but really is in modern time. I easily forget that. This story in the series focuses on Rachael Holley. It is a story to self discovery. When Rachael is jilted at the altar by her fiance the night before their wedding, she is forced to take a look at her life and see what her fiance’ meant about not being in love with him.
As the story goes it tells of her dreams and how she had her life planned out down to the perfect man to the big house with the dog. When Rachael meets Sam, it causes her to step back and evaluate what it is she really wants, who she really is and why.
This story was an inspirational read, as are the first two in the series. Each book containing some sort of real life lesson. Full of emotions, these stories tend to be relatable and easy to read. This particular story points out that happiness is not always the fairy tale you read about in stories, but it is hard and challenging. But first and foremost, you must believe in yourself before you can love.
So if you are looking for a story that has meaning and will pull on your heart-strings, then this book is perfect for you. I highly suggest starting at the beginning of the series, but you don’t have to. It is easy to read as a standalone and not be lost.
