Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K. Vogt

About this Book

Winning an all-expenses paid Colorado destination wedding might seem like a dream come true for some people—but Caron Hollister and her boyfriend Alex Madison aren’t even engaged. How is she supposed to tell him she’s won their wedding and honeymoon when he hasn’t asked her to marry him? Being “perfect for one another” seems like the absolute best reason to get married. But what if their supposedly faultless relationship is merely a safe place to protect his secrets and a way to keep their families happy? After quitting her job, Caron accepts her best friend’s offer to visit Colorado. She needs to catch her breath. Who knows, maybe visiting the destination wedding site will make a future with Alex seem like a reality.

Kade Webster just landed the biggest deal of his life with his company, Webster Select Realty, participating in the Colorado Springs Tour of Homes. He never imagined he would run into the woman who broke his heart—Caron Hollister—right when his career is taking off. Seeing her again, Kade can’t help but wonder why Caron walked away from him years ago, leaving him with no explanation. When Kade learns his home stager won’t be able to help with the Tour of Homes, he vaults past all the reasons he should stay away from Caron, and offers her a temporary job helping him on the project. This time, their relationship is purely business.

Spending time with Kade has Caron questioning everything. The man intrigues her—at times infuriates her—and reminds her of what she lost. Has she been settling for what everyone expects of her? Just because others believe she and Alex are an ideal couple, does that mean they should get married? And how can Caron say “I do” to one man when she’s wondering “what if?” about another?


 

 

My Review

This book was prediciatably fun and entertaining. Caron Hollister spent her life trying to please daddy and always coming up short. But in an impulsive move her comfortable predictable world crumbled.
Even though I could see a lot of where this book was heading I still enjoyed it very much. Partly because the author dealt with a topic that is important in our world today, the fate of our wounded warriors. She beautifully wove a secondary storyline into this book with Mitch and Lacey. I absolutely LOVED that!
This story also dealt with the issues of alcoholism and the effects it has on entire families. I felt like the author did a great job bringing this out in this story. She handled the harsh reality with grace.
If you’ve enjoyed Vogt’s other Destination Wedding stories you will love this one. There are some laughs in this story as well as some touching moments. If you haven’t read any of these stories you can pick up with this one with no problems. There are some characters from other Vogt stories present but they are secondary to this story.
Great Read!

I love to read, especially mystery books. Though in the past couple of years I've been a part of the ACFW Book Club and have found some wonderful writers. It's been fun to interact with authors.

Welcome! I appreciate your thoughts!
