About the book: 
Crazy Little Thing Called Love: A Destination Wedding Novel
(Howard, June 2015)

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 fiancé. 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?

Dynamic Uno here:  By now you know that I'm a sucker for romance stories and this new series by Beth K. Vogt is definitely towards the top of my list!  I mean--destination weddings!!!! Why, YES!!!! What girl hasn't dreamed of escaping the pressures of inviting every single person she's ever known to her wedding so as to not hurt anyone's feelings?  To escape all of that stress by having a small and intimate wedding at a tropical destination?  Count me in!

Being a Florida resident, I wasn't too impressed with the idea of a destination wedding in Destin, but I could see how a doctor in Colorado might think it would be a dreamy place for a wedding.  (I would have chosen Paris, France, but then again, I 'm not planning a wedding based upon where my professional conference was being held, like Vanessa'a fiance.)

The chemistry between Vanessa and Logan still crackled every time they were together, even after being divorced for eight years.  I loved reading their "secret" thoughts and learning about the whirlwind romance  that led to their elopement as teenagers.  I kept cheering them from the sidelines and was frustrated when they wouldn't acknowledge that their feelings for one another hadn't changed.

After reading about Vanessa and Logan's second chance at love, it reignites my hope for my own happily ever after!  

If you enjoy reading good, clean romances with sweet story-lines, then Crazy Little Thing Called Love is for you!  I can't wait to read the rest of the Destination  Wedding series.  Who knows--maybe there will be one set in Paris after all!

Let me know what you think and Happy Reading!
