Almost Like Being In Love by Beth K. Vogt

Beth K. Vogt believes God’s best often waits behind the doors marked “Never.” Beth is a 2016 Christy Award winner, as well as a 2015 RITA® finalist, and three-time ACFW Carol Award finalist. She continues her destination wedding series with You Can’t Hurry Love (May 2016) and Almost Like Being in Love (June 2016).

Beth’s destination wedding series caught my attention when she was promoting the novella, Can’t Buy Me Love, which I really enjoyed! So I naturally wanted to read more:

This is Caron Hollister’s story, she is a Realtor.

Hollisters don’t quit.

In Almost Like Being in Love, Caron works for her father and that is exactly where the trouble starts. She is out to prove herself in his real estate company, when he drops a bombshell by giving the position she had been working hard for, to another woman. Nancy Miller. Well, things go downhill from there in her relationship with her father and for her real estate career in her father’s company. Caron is now needing to make some big decisions, ones that will affect her future and ultimately her family too.

One thing I love is when someone pursues what they love and it develops and blossoms, and that is exactly what happens to Caron, I don’t want to give too much away, but here’s a clue:

Caron and her boyfriend, Alex are “the perfect couple” and then…..then they aren’t (no spoilers) but this may have something to do with a trip to Colorado to carch her breath, and she gets more than she bargained for. She gets a reunion of sorts with past love, Kade Webster. Caron begins to question everything and as you can imagine, sparks fly.  And just to complicate matters, she manages to win a destination wedding…..now all she has to do is find a groom.

*Gasp, I hate to admit it, but this is my first full length Beth K Vogt book. I have been admiring her books from afar and just have not got around to reading one of hers, until now. Boy and I glad I did!


I won a copy of Can’t Buy Me Love and was hooked on Beth’s work. I then received a copy of Almost Like Being in Love from the publisher. My review is my own, honest opinion.
