I really enjoyed Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K. Vogt. The story was good and I was inspired by this book on a spiritual level.
I purchased a copy of this book. I was not required to write a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I was inspired by Caron praying and listening for God and her willingness to be patient and wait for what He has for her. That's so hard to do in real life! A spiritual theme that carries throughout the book is that God's love for us is unconditional. As we watch Caron try to win her father's approval, we see her come to understand that she doesn't have to be anything that she's not to win her heavenly Father's approval.
From the back of the book: Winning a destination wedding would be a dream come true...if Caron Hollister and her boyfriend, Alex, were engaged. How is she supposed to break the news that she's won their dream wedding when he hasn't even proposed? Sure, everyone says they're perfect for each other. And he's likely to pop the question any minute. But will it really work if he can't even see why she likes the idea of a destination wedding?
Realtor Kade Webster has put his past heartbreak with Caron behind him. His thriving real estate company keeps him busy, and now he's secured a big win with the Colorado Tour of Homes. Then his home stager cancels, leaving him in the lurch...just as Caron shows up in his life once again. She can help him with the tour as long as they keep things purely professional.
Spending time helping Kade while she should be planning her dream destination wedding has Caron in knots. They broke up for good reasons, yet she's still embarrassingly attracted to him, even if he sometimes drives her crazy. How can she be feeling such things for one man when she's imagining a wedding with another? Can she say "I do" to one man when she's wondering "What if" about another?
