The Wedding Letters is a continuation of the story of the Cooper family that started in The Wednesday Letters. The Wedding Letters can stand on it's own, but it will be a more fulfilling read if you have read The Wednesday Letters first.

The story centers around the main characters, Noah Cooper and his future bride, Rachel. All of the characters are so wonderfully rich, and colorful. They remind you of your neighbors and family members, so you connect quickly with them. Previous readers of this

I received an ARC from the Book Expo in NYC. While the reps at the expo 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…

It has been a while since I read the Wednesday Letters so it took me a bit to catch up and remember some of the characters in this sequel. I love the descriptions of the bed and breakfast - I seriously need to spend a weekend at one! The idea of having a book of Wedding Letters is simply wonderful. Maybe I should bind up all the cards we got to make my own book of wedding notes.

A feel good story. I liked the idea presented about "meant to be" vs. working/fighting for love.

No where near as good as The Wednesday Letters but kind of a nice wrap up to it. I wouldn't recommend it as the most riveting book in the world, but if you've read TWL then I'd recommend it as a nice easy read.

I'm the type of girl who is a romantic at heart , when people talk about the time periods they would have loved to live in - I always say the Reinassance as I love everything from not only the costumes but mainly the poetry, creativeness , mannerisms - the fact that they wrote love letters to each other. It just makes you want to sit there and sigh and wish that you had somebody like that in your life.
The Wedding Letters is a book that I loved to pieces and if you are a fan of Nicholas Spark's

A lovely little story about love, loss, forgiveness, redemption, friendship and letters.

When I think back on this story, it reminds me of a patchwork quilt. You have all kinds of fabrics, each with their own tale to tell. Some of the pieces may have a coffee stain or imperfection and they may not all matching colors, but it comes together to form a piece that surrounds you in warmth - much like the Cooper family.

Each member of the family has their own part of the story, some of the parts are not

Voller Spannung begann ich diesen Roman zu lesen. War ich doch lange noch in der vorgänger Geschichte gedanklich geblieben gewesen. Ich wollte wieder diesen besonderen Zauber spüren. Doch erst mal wurde ich enttäuscht…

Vielleicht habe ich zuviel erwartet gehabt, und mich konnte das ganze nicht sofort in den Bann ziehen. Nach und nach jedoch passierte es wieder. Ich war mittendrin statt nur dabei. Jason F. Wright verbindet wieder die Gegenwart mit der Vergangenheit, zeigt auf wie es die Menschen b

I listened to this one while traveling with my family for spring break. We enjoyed it together. I was the only one who had previously read The Wednesday Letters, and that was years ago, so it was a struggle to remember who everyone was and what I already knew about them. Bits and pieces came back with the details in this story, but the rest of my family were able to enjoy it even without being familiar with the other book. I like the closeness of the Cooper family and I liked that Noah was such ...more

I am a huge Jason F. Wright fan. I'm working my way through his collection.

I liked this book, but it wasn't as outstanding as many of his others. I'll explain how I rate Jason's work. The first three books I read by Jason were "The Seventeen Second Miracle" "The Cross Gardener" and "The Christmas Jar" ... Each one of these had me in tears and laughing and boohooing like a baby with big fat tears. I am in awe of Jason's writing. He knows that because I've written him long Facebook notes about th

Noah and Rachel met in a romantically fun way so I liked them off the bat. Mix their blooming young love with older mature love of their parents and you've got a recipe for life lesson love stories. Unfortunately, altogether it was not impressive. Even the "wedding letters" were a bit flat. I wasn't really moved as I thought I'd be. I especially did not like the ending. That (view spoiler) thing came at left field for me and frankly her reaction ...more

Rachel and Noah meet in a very non-traditional way and fall in love. Noah's family and the area he grew up means a lot to him, and comes to mean a lot to Rachel. But, family ties weren't strong for her, and coming to grips with what she can have, while coping with her past might be too much to bear.

I was immediately drawn into The Wedding Letters with Wright's description of Rachel and Noah's meeting. Very creative.

But most of the first half of the book seemed like revisiting The Wednesday Lette
No one has ever seen a quote from me before, but these are too meaningful to pass up: " ... history is dangerous if you pay too much attention to it because tomorrow hasn't happened yet decide what tomorrow's history will look like."

Also, "Not a star ...not the moon to show the way. No matter ---each knew exactly where their loved ones were. And why."

Significant to my life, and I hope to yours. This little book is a highly recommended reading AFTER "The Wednesday Letters" by the same aut

This novel is a continuation of the characters from "The Wednesday Letters" although you need not have read the first novel to enjoy this one. Noah and Rachel meet while in college and fall in love. Noah is very close to his parents, who run a bed and breakfast near Shenandoah National Park. Rachel is not close to her mother and has not heard from her father in many years. The wedding letters come into the story when the couple becomes engaged and an old family friend of Noah's agrees to put tog ...more

I thought the book was all right. He tied up the ending in a nice, pretty bow. I don't know that I enjoyed the reader on the CD as much as others, but I got used to him. I think I probably might have enjoyed the story more if I had read it myself, since I sometimes don't like the readers voices/styles chosen for book CD's. The story was filled with old cliches and I guess I was rather looking for new ones that haven't been used so much. I think the story could of had less words and still told th ...more

This book was a nice companion to the Wednesday Letters. While there were beautifully written letters like in the first book, this one didn't quite match it. I love the different personalities displayed in each letter and Jason Wright has a way of making mushy sentiments seem unique and memorable. I loved catching up with past characters as well as meeting new ones. The hitch in the story was believable but not as gripping as the event in Laurel's life in Wednesday Letters. I did find myself fal ...more

Noah and Rachel are two different people, thrown together by chance and chivalry on the part of Noah. What starts as an accident, takes the turn into a feel-good story of love, family, devotion, past and future. Rachel learns what a family can be like when there is love and honesty as she agrees to go with Noah to his home in the Shenandoah Valley to a quant Inn owned by his family. The eccentric A&P, that is as much family as anyone around and the idea of keeping the family Inn in the famil ...more

I listened to this book on a recent trip, and I really enjoyed it. It was a clean book with a sweet plot, but it kept me interested the whole time. I guess it is the second book in a series, but it holds its own. It is a romantic book with great detail, but not so much that it gets boring. The characters are well written, even for a second book. I want to read the first one and see what happens before this one. It was nice that if my kids took their headphones off, I wouldn't have to worry about ...more

Noah's car hits Rachel on her bicycle as he is avoiding a squirrel. It is love at first sight, and they decide to marry at Noah's parent's bed and breakfast. Rachel's mother tells Rachel the real truth about her biological father, and Rachel calls off the wedding. It's not clear why this affects her wedding plans. The concept of asking people to write Wedding Letters to the couple is nice, and there are a lot of interesting letters woven through this novel. The story line is trite, and of course ...more

My husband and I enjoyed listening to this on our trip to Mesa this weekend. It was a nice, little story with a happy ending. Not many twists, and it was predictable, but still enjoyable and entertaining. The characters are folks you'd want to meet and get to know; they were endearing. I am glad for the chance to share this book with my husband especially. I like this author. The narrator's lisp was distracting to me. I am sorry to have to comment on that because I dislike hurting someone's feel ...more

This is a sequel to Jason F. Wright's 2007 novel, which I loved! This one starts out with a funny traffic accident and continues into a friendship which becomes a romance. We see the beauty of a small town and a close family. Enter a dysfunctional mom with a dark secret, which comes out and spoils the fun. Plans for a family wedding change to become plans for a community celebration. Thoughout it all, there are letters, letters and more letters. Some twists and turns take us to a very satisfacto ...more

another good read by Jason Wright. I really loved Rachel and Noah and the way their relationship developed. I also enjoyed reading the "Wedding Letters" that were included in the book. I wish someone would have written letters to my husband and I when we got married 10 years ago. Maybe we should do anniversary letters :) I also appreciated the reference to the Birch family in chapter 29. It was purely coincidental that I read Matt Birch's book just before the Wedding Letters. Thanks for another ...more
