Crazy Little Thing Called Love, by Beth K. Vogt {a book review}

About the book

Wedding bells and storm clouds collide in the first engaging novel in a brand-new series about destination weddings, the power of love, and the possible mishaps and missteps that happen on a couple’s journey down the aisle to “I do.”

Paramedic Vanessa Hollister has put her adolescence behind her, including the unwanted label of being the new kid in town over and over again, thanks to her father’s military career. She’s overcome what her mother called “the biggest mistake of her life” and is planning an elegant destination wedding in Destin, Florida with her new fiancĂ©. But will the reappearance of her first husband from her what-were-you-thinking teenage elopement disrupt her dream of an idyllic beach wedding?

As a professional storm chaser, Logan Hollister is used to taking risks. However, a reckless decision during the last tornado season has him questioning the future of his team, the Stormmeisters. Coming face to face with his ex-wife eight years after their divorce compels him to confront his greatest regret: losing Vanessa. Does their past give him the right to interfere with her future?

A fast-moving, powerful hurricane throws Vanessa and Logan together as they evacuate to a storm shelter along with other residents of the Florida Gulf Coast. Forced to spend time together, the pair battles unexpected renewed feelings for each other.

Vanessa and Logan are faced with a choice: Should they accept, once and for all, their teenage marital mistake? Or is God offering them a second chance at happily ever after?

What I thought about the book

I love Florida, and the Destin area is one of the areas I'd like to explore more, some day. My oldest son has always had an interest in extreme weather, and would like to be a storm chaser himself (I'm not sure if that will ever happen, but it is his dream). For these two reasons, I found this story enjoyable, and fun to read.

Because it also talked about divorce, and forgiveness for the hurt that causes, I found it even more powerful than I thought it'd be (since I've "been there, done that"). I was surprised to find I needed a few tissues.

I definitely recommend this book! I passed this one on to my daughter, too.
