Review - Wish You Were Here by Beth K. Vogt

You would think Allison Denman would be happy on her wedding day, but she isn’t, she even hates the wedding dress she has on. Just five days before the wedding she had kissed her soon-to-be brother-in-law, Daniel. And before her wedding day could start, she leaves her no-to-be groom waiting at the alter. Kissing David had been her wake up call. She always wanted to be married, but not to be married just for the sake of it.

Allison is a Christian and she wants to be true to her faith. She believes God has a plan for her and it may just be out of her normal comfort zone.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this contemporary runaway bride tale with all of its quirky characters and upbeat dialogue. The runaway bride Allison is a likeable character with everyday problems, including possible falling for her ex-brother-in-law-to-be Daniel. There is even a cute little cat in it named Bisquick. The author Beth K. Vogt did a superior job crafting a modern romantic novel while ignoring all the typical clichés of romance books. I recommend the book to all romance readers.

*I would like to thank Litfuse & Howard Books for sending me a copy to review.
