From the author of Somebody Like You
, a RITA finalist, and one of Publishers Weekly
's top ten books of 2014, comes the story of a woman who has everything for a perfect wedding--except the groom
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?

Vogt’s disappointing second Destination Wedding novel (after Crazy Little Thing Called Love) contains little character development and a disjointed narrative. All her life, Caron Hollister has craved the approval of her father, Russell. She played basketball in high school because he liked it, became a realtor and joined his company, and is dating a man he likes. When Russell makes a business decision without warning her beforehand, she quits and takes a vacation to Telluride, Colo., to clear her head. Former Army Ranger Kade Webster is working hard on getting his realty company off the ground, and the last thing he needs is a blast from his past in the form of his ex-flame, Caron. However, she soon discovers that she still has feelings for Kade, despite their break-up two years prior. This Christian contemporary romance suffers from pacing issues, as the characters are too focused on their own inner monologues and interactions between them are minimal.
