CRAZY LITTLE THING CALLED LOVE
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?
Crazy Little Thing Called Love is part of The Destination Wedding Series. In this book, we follow Vanessa Hollister, a paramedic, and Logan Hollister, a professional storm chaser. They were high school sweethearts who married each other during their senior year of high school. However, after only two years of marriage, they divorced and never saw each other again. Here we are, eight years later, and Vanessa's current fiance, Ted, wants to plan a destination wedding in Destin, Florida, so he can attend a work conference at the same time. Vanessa has no desire to go back to the place where she met Logan, but Ted's practicality wins out. A freak accident on the beach brings her and Logan back together briefly. But when a major hurricane forces them to work together to save a life, they find that they fall back into their old patterns and habits, and struggle with the fact that they still care for each other.
This was a great book. I found myself getting upset with Vanessa for staying with a guy like Ted when there was a guy like Logan around that still loved her, even after all they had been through. You'll find yourself rooting for them from the moment they see each other again, despite the circumstances that tore them apart.
