Crazy Little Thing Called Love

Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Beth K. Vogt

Purchase a copy:

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?


My thoughts:

“What if what you thought was your biggest mistake was actually the right choice?”

Crazy Little Thing Called Love examines this question and so much more. Beth Vogt’s characters are well-crafted and deal with the struggles of life and the ramifications of impulsive decisions. Much of Vanessa and Logan’s relationship is shared through flashbacks. While I enjoyed these glimpses into their feelings and emotions, I did wish for more present-day communication and development as they rekindled their relationship.

I loved the quotes at the beginning of each chapter! They were perfect precursors, and I looked forward to reading each one. An engaging plot and endearing secondary characters round out this narrative, making it an enjoyable summer read. I look forward to continuing the Destination Wedding series and can’t wait to see where the next wedding will be.

I received a complimentary copy of Crazy Little Thing Called Love through Litfuse Publicity in exchange for an unbiased review.  I appreciate the opportunity to read this story and share my thoughts.

    I think you are spot on with the flashback bit. They were cute and clued us into their past, but we didn’t get to see as much of a connection in the present.
