Hello, inspy romance fans. Have you had a chance to read Beth Vogt’s new release? Crazy Little Thing Called Love is one for the keeper shelf, in my opinion. There’s much to ponder about this novel, but I’d have to say my favorite aspect of Beth’s work is her ability to dig into the messy business of life and examine it through the lens of relatable characters. Who hasn’t wanted a second chance at restoring a broken relationship or an opportunity to right past wrongs? I’ll share more of my thoughts later on in the post.

Description: 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?
Heidi’s Review: This poignant inspirational romance examines the age-old question of whether or not we can truly have a second chance at love. On a deeper level, the characters wrestle with the messiness of lives and reaping the consequences of an impulsive yet life-changing decision to marry young. Beth Vogt weaves a compelling story, crafted with just enough flashbacks to give you a sense of Logan and Vanessa’s history, as well as pulls you into the heart of their conflicted, emotional circumstances. The spiritual journey of both characters gave me plenty to mull even after the last page was turned. No spoilers here, but there’s an amazing scene at the end of the novel that is just a beautiful picture of the covenant relationship our Lord offers his children. I’m intrigued with the premise of a destination wedding series and I look forward to more from this talented author. Well done!
Thank you to the author and the publisher for providing a complimentary copy of the novel. The opinions expressed in this review are my own.
