The first book in Lucinda Race's 'The MacLellan Sisters Trilogy' introduces us to Jamie, Kenzie, and Grace MacLellan - three sisters who happen to be happily single, smart, ambitious and beautiful. And have no intention whatsoever to change their independent ways and get saddled with a husband. After all, it is a lot 'easier to face life alone than be devastated by a shattered heart.'

But when their their beloved Gran passes away, the sisters receive an intriguing parcel and

Old and New: The Enchanted Wedding Dress Book One is the first book in The Maclellan Sisters Trilogy by Lucinda Race. This is an original, heart-warming story- with romance, sisterhood, family bonds, family heirlooms, and a little bit of enchantment. I really enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading the other two books in this sweet trilogy.
Here we meet the MacLellan sister- Jamie, Kenzie, and Grace who receive a package after the death of their beloved Gran. Inside the box is

This book was just what I needed!

Meet the MacLellan sisters, Jamie, Kenzie, and Grace – all smart, ambitious, and very single. They’re happy to be so, successfully going about their lives in charming Vermont. That is, until a mysterious package arrives from their beloved “Gran” from Scotland, who passed away. Gran’s antique wedding dress is purported to have magical powers. If an unmarried descendant wears the dress and looks in the mirror, she’ll see her future. That can’t possibly be true. Or

The first book in Lucinda Race's "The MacLellan Sisters Trilogy" introduces readers to Jamie, Kenzie, and Grace MacLellan - three professional and independent single women living in Vermont. Their lives revolve around each other and there isn't a man in sight for any of them (at least that they can see!). The sisters have sworn off relationships and marriage for fear of losing their independence.

This resonated with me. Relationships can suck you up and spit you out into this weird automaton hyb

I am so going to love this trilogy from Lucinda Race! Old and New: The Enchanted Wedding Dress, is the first in the trilogy and sets things up rather beautifully for a wild and magical ride until the end. I adored this book and the premise, along with the sisters, and fell in love with them pretty quickly. The banter in this novel makes you feel as if you are right there, as it flows beautifully. I can’t wait to see how the next few books unfold as well.

In this one we meet all three sisters, Gra

This is the first book that I have read from this author and wow she blew me away. This book is the perfect way to start an addictive sereis. I love a good small town romance but this author exceeded all my expectations. You can’t help but to fall in love with these characters. I could not put this book down until the end. It only took me a couple of days to devour this amazing story.

“Mirror Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all”, except this time, the magic is not in the mirror, but is on the onlooker of the mirror, who is to don a specific attire. The seeker is supposed to try on a “wedding dress” and look into the mirror to foresee her prince charming.
The series is a trilogy about three sisters, which makes me think that each book belongs to one sister. The plot of the first book revolves around the oldest sister Jamie. Jamie along with the two sisters Grace

Old and New: The Enchanted Wedding Dress (The MacLellan Sisters Trilogy Book 1) by Lucinda Race, was really a great love story. There are so many things about this story that makes it a great love story. I think what I like the most about it, is the strength of the family, how the family bonds are threaded throughout the entire book. Not only with the sisters in this little tale but also the brothers. Because you know if you have a love story involving sisters then you also have to have brothers ...more

Delightful Piece Of Work!

Great story that flows so smoothly and is easy to read. An original tale that is highly believable. I loved the family camaraderie, friendship, devotion, support and love, exhibited by all three siblings. So heartwarming! The entire familial closeness was unbelievable. Then there was the delightful romance of the eldest sister. Wonderful stuff! Scrumptious! Can hardly wait to read about the two other sisters and their tale of romance. Thank you so much Ms. Race for this

Old and New is the first book in the MacLellan Sisters Trilogy. This was the first book I have read by Lucinda Race but as I have found often with new to me authors lately, it will not be my last.

Old and New: The Enchanted Wedding Dress is the first book in the MacLellan Sisters Trilogy by Lucinda Race. Lucinda Race is an author that I have read before so was really looking forward to reading more of her work.
This is a great romance book but it is quite different from a lot of romance books that I have read before. Much of the book is centred around the three MacLellan sisters Jamie, Kenzie and Grace and a lot of time is devoted to scenes where the three of them are together finding out

Wow, this book was an amazing read that kept me guessing throughout. At first, I was a little frustrated by the largely one POV but then I realised that helped add to the mystery. The characters were supremely well developed - at times they frustrated me and at times I was cheering them on - just like you would anyone in your life I'm sure. This was the first of Lucinda Race's books that I have read, but it won't be the last - beginning with the other two books in this trilogy!

Jamie, Kenzie and Grace are all career drive ladies. A relative passed away and they are given an family heirloom along with a prophecy will these things actually come true. Or is it all a old fairytale. This is a very heart warming story about sisterhood and bonds. This is a heart-warming story to read.

The premise of the magic in an heirloom wedding dress that promises love to whoever puts it on, is the basis of this series. The love and support from the sisters is heartwarming, something that family is all about. The book pulled me in right from the first and I will definitely read the rest of the books in the series.

This was the first book I've read by the author, but it won't be my last. Old and New is the first book in The MacLellan Sisters Trilogy. To say that I can't wait for book 2 is an understatement.

Jamie, oldest MacLellan sister, gets the pleasure of keeping her grandmother's things. That includes a wedding dress that's supposed to be enchanted. Jamie tries it on and she meets a guy. What happens whe

Old and New: The Enchanted Wedding Dress by Lucinda Race is the first book in the MacLellan Sisters trilogy. This is a fun story with some great characters, especially the 3 sisters.

We meet 3 sisters whose grandmother sends them a special package after her passing. It has her wedding dress in it which, if worn, will show the person wearing it their future love. This first book is about oldest sister Jamie. She wants to be an independent single woman but when that dress speaks to her, she changes her mind and wants to marry and build a future. Her hero is quite fantastic and sweet. This was written nicely and with all kinds of romance.

A story of finding love when you aren't even looking for it. After a wedding dress is passed down to her, can Jamie resist the temptation of trying it on?
This story follows Jamie and her two sisters through a remarkable time in their lives. Single and very independent and career driven, Jamie has decided she will not marry and will not lose her independence. But does life hold something different for her?

Oh this did my romantic sentimental heart so much good. In the midst of so much turmoil in the world at this moment I loved escaping into these pages and reading about these sisters and the treasure from their grandmother. I loved the way Race built each character and relationship. And I adored the way this story unfolded. Book one in a trilogy that I cannot wait to finish - just a beautiful read.

This is a story about a wedding dress that was sent to Jamie from her great-grandmother. There are a couple of problems with this. First Jamie has no intention of getting married and second the dress is supposed to be enchanted. She tries the dress on, will she change her mind? After meeting Caleb will he change her mind?

This is the first book in a trilogy about three sisters who have just lost their beloved gran. They receive a box from her and upon opening it find a gorgeous handmade wedding dress that is said to have the ability to show you who you are to marry. I was kind of reminded of the sisterhood of the traveling pants in that the wedding dress fit each sister perfectly despite them being different sizes and shape.

Jamie is the eldest sister and the most reluctant to try on the dress although curiosity f
