Book Review: Wish You Were Here by Beth K Vogt

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.

My Thoughts:  This is the author's debut novel and I'm already looking forward to her next work of fiction.  This was a fantastic and entertaining read - managing to deal with serious issues and still remain quite light at the same time.

I cringed at the thoughts and feelings she was having about her wedding and her groom and was reminded again how crucial the decision of who to marry is and how many times people make a huge mistake in that choice for a myriad of reasons, none of which are worth the heartache that is sure to follow.

The runaway bride might be a cliche but this book was anything but!  Delightful read.
