Book Review: Wish You Were Here , By Beth K. Vogt



Beth K. Vogt
My Thoughts:
Y'all know I love a good "get away" book and I absolutely love a sweet romance story, so when I picked up this book I thought this could be a good fit. At first I thought it was going to be a bit like "Runaway Bride" but as the pages went on I quickly learned this is so much more than a typical runaway bride movie or story. With twists, turns and adventure this book was...well...devoured in one day. I absolutely could not put it down. Wherever Allison Denman (the lead in the book) went I went right along with her. It was the perfect blend of adventure, romance and faith.


As you prepare for your summer vacation and some time to "get away" on your own, this book is a perfect addition to your summer reading...you are gonna love it!

About the book:
Allison Denman is supposed to get married in five days, but everything is all wrong. The huge wedding. The frothy dress. And the groom. Still, kissing the groom's brother in an unguarded moment is decidedly not the right thing to do. How could she have made such a mistake? It seems Allison's life is nothing but mistakes at this point. And pulling a "Runaway Bride" complete with stealing, er, borrowing her best friend's car doesn't seem to solve her problems. Can Allison find her way out of this mess? Maybe she just needs to stop orchestrating everything. Allison prefers being the one in control, and giving it up is not going to be easy. But to find her way again, she will have to believe that God has a plan for her and find the strength to let Him lead.

Beth K. Vogt provides her readers with a happily ever after woven through with humor, reality, and God's lavish grace. She's a non-fiction author and editor who said she'd never write fiction. She's the wife of an Air Force physician (now in solo practice) who said she'd never marry a doctor-or anyone in the military. She's a mom of four who said she'd never have kids. Beth has discovered that God's best often waits behind the doors marked "Never." She writes contemporary romance because she believes there's more to happily ever after than the fairy tales tell us. Beth earned a journalism degree from San Jose State University and met her husband Rob when he knocked her down at a karate studio. They've been married for 31 years. They have four children, ranging in ages from 28, 25, 23 and - thanks to a funny thing happening on their way to the empty nest-a 10-year-old. The Vogt Team, which now includes a "daughter-in-love" and "son-in-love," enjoys hiking and camping in Colorado. Read more about Beth at her website:http://bethvogt.com
