Crazy Little Thing Called Love


By Beth K. Vogt

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?


Vanessa’s fiance’ Ted has talked her into planning a Florida destination wedding. Alwys practical and efficient, he plans to include attending a medical seminar to further his career as an ER doc. Doesn’t Vanessa yearn for a little more romance than that?

Then Ted gets the bright idea for Vanessa to take some time off from her job and fly down to Florida to make all the arrangements in person. Vanessa is less than thrilled. The seminar location is her old stomping grounds where she left a lot of memories.

Well, Vanessa went after a detour to Montana first. When she finally made it to Florida she indeed was hit with unhappy memories of her past mistakes. This was going to be a difficult trip.

Be sure you have a box of tissues handy. I think it was about chapter 28 that I started crying, and cried all the way to the end.

Thank you, Ms Vogt.It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that touched my heart as much as this one.
