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?

This book was so much fun to read. It's very light hearted and fresh. There isn't a huge cliff hanger or something to make you bite your nails. This would be a perfect beach read or on a road trip. It was just nice to read a novel that made me smile and didn't bog me down with a heavy storyline.
The story starts with Vanessa planning a destination wedding to her fiancé Ted. She winds up in Destin, where she lived her Senior year. She runs into her ex-husband and that's when all the fun starts.
I really liked this book. It is the first in the destination wedding series. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much is because the characters actually reminded me of my husband and myself. Beth is a great writer. She is very engaging and fun, not to wordy and really kept me interested in the story. I enjoyed all of the characters. They are all very believable and fun. This book kept me wanting more but was light and easy to read. I am very interested in the next book in the series. I'm very excited to read more by Beth. Thank you to TBCN for giving me the opportunity to review this book. A positive review was not required.
