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?

Who doesn't love a summertime wedding story? Beth K Vogt has penned a delightful novel of a bride reluctantly planning a destination wedding in the very town where she made an impetuous decision to elope as a teenager. Stormy weather is ahead in more ways than one, and Vogt creates plenty of drama when Vanessa and her first husband, Logan, continue to bump into each other. I loved the characters in this story--well, except for Vanessa's rigid, workaholic, fiance!--and the layers of relationships built into this novel. Mr. and Mrs. Wright completely charmed my heart, as did the loving care Vanessa and Logan provided for them during the storm. A strong start to a promising series, Crazy Little Thing Called Love is the perfect addition to your summer reading list.
