Book Tour: Wish You Were Here

Welcome to the blog tour for Beth Vogt's Wish You Were Here.

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.

About the Author:

Beth K. Vogt provides her readers with a happily ever after woven through with humor, reality, and God's lavish grace. She's a non-fiction author and editor who said she'd never write fiction. She's the wife of an Air Force physician (now in solo practice) who said she'd never marry a doctor-or anyone in the military. She's a mom of four who said she'd never have kids. Beth has discovered that God's best often waits behind the doors marked "Never." She writes contemporary romance because she believes there's more to happily ever after than the fairy tales tell us. Beth earned a journalism degree from San Jose State University and met her husband Rob when he knocked her down at a karate studio. They've been married for 31 years. They have four children, ranging in ages from 28, 25, 23 and - thanks to a funny thing happening on their way to the empty nest-a 10-year-old. The Vogt Team, which now includes a "daughter-in-love" and "son-in-love," enjoys hiking and camping in Colorado. Read more about Beth at her website: http://bethvogt.com

Pattie's Review:

Once in a while, I come across a book or movie that goes against the expected grain. This is one of those books. I wonder how many women find themselves knowing right before the wedding, even up to the moment of saying "I do," that the marriage is a mistake? A bad idea gone totally wrong? Feeling trapped and alone, caught up in their own bad decision and knowing that they should do the wrong thing and break their engagement promise and stop a wedding that would begin a marriage that would be so very unhappy?

This book explores some of those questions, and more. I am happy to recommend this book as a light (but by no means fluffy) atypical romance with a lot of heart and spiritual growth--a great best friend and a spunky heroine.
