Being a Navy brat, I could definitely identify with Vanessa. We didn't move that often however, we moved the summer of my sophomore year of high school from California to Florida. I started my junior year at a new high school knowing no one, and like Vanessa I bumped into a senior football player walking down the hallway.
Beth placed this book in Destin, Florida, a place I knew nothing about. Vanessa plans her destiny wedding in Destin because it kills two birds with one stone. Her fiance` Ted is a ER Dr. and there is a medical conference the same weekend they want to get married. The last place Vanessa wants to be is in Destin because of all the memories of her and Logan. When a hurricane hits Destin forget trees flying, emotions are high and flying too.
This book was fun, I was glued to the pages from the first page. It was full of surprises that kept you glued to your seat. I was sad to see it end, I wanted to spend more time with these new friends. This is a perfect summer book, and I highly recommend it!
