Janelle Alex Ph.D.'s Review

Ever wonder why someone gets married in Vegas in a little wedding chapel? Well, Stephen Murray has filled his book, The Chapel of Eternal Love, with fictional wedding tales set in a Las Vegas chapel. The fascinating characters in the story give you some insight into what might be going through the couples' hearts and minds. Murray has a way with words that easily expresses the individual emotions and depth of love of his fictional couples. He kicks off the story sharing a bit of background on the chapel as well as who founded it. Then, he moves forward by sharing the deep love the current owner continues to have, even after two decades, for this charming and beautiful spot to join together those in love. The stories, as well as the ages, religions, and backgrounds of the couples in The Chapel of Eternal Love gracefully move from one end of the spectrum to the other. Yet, what really got me is how quick and easy it was to grow emotionally attached to each and every character in The Chapel of Eternal Love. It is amazing how Murray is able to enrapture readers so swiftly. Readers will long for the sequel as the curiosity to know what becomes of these adorable, powerful, sweet, and delightful characters is quite compelling.

Elegantly written, The Chapel of Eternal Love offers readers the chance to embrace a vast expanse of love and loss from a bird's eye view. Hands down, Stephen Murray has created a series of beautiful love stories that flow gently from one to the other. On top of that, there is an interesting perspective that has, perhaps, a metaphysical feel as Buster, the chapel owner's little dog, always seems to know which couples will have a harmonious love and which ones may not. Buster adds an extra fun little piece to the stories within the story. Stephen Murray's The Chapel of Eternal Love is riveting in a way that will have your heartbeat swaying as gently as flower petals in a warm summer breeze. It is a must have for your romance library!
