Wish You Were Here by Beth K. Vogt

Oh my goodness, I loved this book! What a perfectly delightful read this was, from the moment Allison runs out of the church on her wedding day to the heartwarming ending. Beth K Vogt is a welcome addition to the fiction world and I hope she continues down this new path. The only thing I didn't like about this book was the additional story line of cutting, a subject that while serious, has been recently overused. This book would have been fine without that little foray. I loved the characters (even the llama's) and truly captured every scene in my mind's eye.

Reminiscent of Rachael Hauck and Denise Hunter. If you like their books you will love this one!

Read this one! You won't be disappointed.

From the back cover:
Kissing the wrong guy days before her scheduled wedding leads Allison to become a runaway bride. But can it also lead to happily ever after?
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, Daniel, 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. Daniel's adventures--chronicled through a collection of postcards--have always appealed to Allison's well-hidden desire for something more. But how can betraying her fiance's trust lead to a true happily ever after?
Can Allison find her way out of this mess? Recognizing she doesn't have all the answers won't be easy because she's used to being in control. To find her way again, she will have to believe that God has a plan for her--one outside her carefully defined comfort zone--and find the strength to let Him lead.

Beth K. Vogt is also the author of Baby Changes Everything: Embracing and Preparing for Motherhood After 35. Beth is a consulting editor for MomSense, the Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) International's magazine for moms, as well as a bimonthly columnist for MOMSnext, their e-zine for moms of school-age children. She's been published in a variety of magazines, as well as Chicken Soup for the Soul:A Tribute to Moms and The Mommy Diaries. Beth and her husband, Rob, treasure their four children and son-and daughter-in-love.
