Crazy Little Thing Called Love

by Beth K. Vogt

When Vanessa heads to Florida to plan her destination wedding, she never expects to run into her ex-husband, Logan. Her time there is extended, due to Hurricane Cressida, and she has to face the fact that there are still feelings that haven’t been dealt with. Her, very patient, fiancee is waiting back home for her and she faces a huge decision.

Great book with a lot of depth to the characters. I had a hard time “liking” Vanessa, but I still enjoyed her story. God is a big part of her healing and I liked seeing that play out. There is a lot about forgiveness, unconditional love, friendship and relationships here. Beth doesn’t avoid the hard stuff. I highly recommend it!

Thank you, Litfuse, for this great read! As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

Picture Perfect Love: A June Wedding Story

by Melissa McClone

This is such a cool series! There are twelve novellas and each one correlates with a month of the year. Picture Perfect Love is the June story. Each of them are centered around wedding planners, photographers, etc…

Here we have Jenna’s story. After being left at the alter 2 years ago, she is not looking for love. Backed up with debt from the late cancellation and hurt by the man she loved, Jenna buries herself into her work as a wedding photographer. One day Ash shows up at her door with an apology. Is it too late to forgive and risk her heart again?

Fun story with great characters. Enjoyed it!

Thanks, Litfuse, for this fun, summer read. As always, this is my honest opinion. Here’s to many more!!

I ask Janice some random questions. She replies and then I give my answers. Each winning answer is worth one point and I get to decide whose answer is better.

It’s my blog.

Here we go!

1. Do you wear a fancy hat on Easter Sunday?

Janice – Um, no. But I love the song “Easter Parade,” if that makes any difference.

Charity – That DEFINITELY counts! haha. I am not a fan of the hat or the song…so….

— Janice gets that one!

2. Have you ever had a chimichanga? If so, did you love it?

Janice – Yes. . .and yes. I love anything that’s deep fried. I’m from Texas, where we love all-things-Tex-Mex.

Charity – Mexican is a MAJOR go-to for our family. My sister eats it every single day!!! haha. If they don’t have tacos for lunch, they will have them for dinner. No joke!!

I am VERY ashamed to admit that I don’t ever remember eating a chimichanga though! My husband’s dog was named Chimichanga. That might be part of a deterrent.

— Another point for Janice! Not even my sister’s habits won that one for me!

3. Favorite time in history?

Janice – I love the turn of the century (1900 – 1910). Several of my novels were set during this time period: Hurricane (about the Galveston hurricane of 1900), Queen of the Waves (about the sinking of the Titanic) and Love Finds You in Groom, Texas (set in the Texas panhandle).

Charity – Nice!! I love that too! My favorite times were Regency (Jane Austen) and Revolutionary War (American and British stories). Both were very intriguing!!

4. What is the fanciest kind of car you would want if money was not a concern?

Janice – I love my Equinox but would probably buy something a big larger, if I could afford it—something big enough to hold all eight grandchildren!

Charity – Lucky!! I want grandchildren!!! Man! I would probably go with a Tahoe. They are HUGE and can fit all the teenagers in it that I want to adopt!!!

5. Beach Bum or Hiking Trails?

Janice –Oh, beach bum, for sure! I love going on cruises. My favorite part is the private beach excursions. Swimming in the teal-blue waters off of Grand Cayman ranks high on my list of fun things to do.

Charity – Nice! I am not sure. Tough question. The beach is nice and I love warm weather. I also love hiking.

— It’s always best to know what you like!

6. Favorite character in The Princess Bride?

Janice – Westley, of course! Isn’t he every girl’s dream?

Charity – Absolutely!!!!! However, Fezzik? INCONCEIVABLE!! 1796_108657080017_2451_nOur youngest son used to look like him when he was a baby/toddler. He didn’t get hair FOR-EVER!! It was so funny!! We kept getting him to say “Inconceivable”!! hahahaha

There’s the little bald guy!! —>

— Totally taking that point!!

7. How do you strive to bring God the most glory in your life?

Janice – By acknowledging that every good gift comes from Him—whether it’s the gift of life or the artistic giftings He’s placed in my life (writing, baking, directing, acting).

Charity – Love it! Thankfulness in all things ❤

— God wins, OF COURSE!

8. Since you love writing about them, I was wondering if you had a big, elaborate wedding?

Janice –Nope. Surprisingly, I did not. Now, my four daughters did. The first had a large Italian-themed wedding. The second had a garden-party themed wedding. The third had a Hawaiian-themed wedding. The fourth had a lovely traditional wedding. All were lovely.

Charity – Girl, I couldn’t WAIT to get out of there! We didn’t waste time on ANYTHING!! It was walk up the aisle, cut the cake and SCRAM!! Who wants to waste their time hanging out with a ton of people when you JUST GOT MARRIED?

Nope. Nothing fancy here!! (and can I mention how happy I am to have SONS!! haha)

— Tie. We were on the same page.

9. What is the coolest thing you have ever gotten from overseas? (Purchased or Gifted)

Janice –While in Israel in 1991 (just after Desert Storm) I purchased some lovely pottery. I loved it then and love it now.

Charity – Ohhhh! I LOVE Israel! I was going to say a ring box I got from there! It is so beautiful!!

— Tie again!!

10. Would you ever want a pet monkey?

Janice – Never. No way, no how!

Charity – HAHAHAHA 🙂 I’m right there with ya!

— Ok, totally random and dumb question. I’ll give you a point!

11. What kind of coffee is your favorite?

Janice – Chai Latte. Oh, wait. . .that’s a tea. Hahaha. Truly, I prefer hot teas over coffee. If I do drink coffee, it has to be weak and very, very sweet (with Italian Sweet Cream creamer).

Charity – I am a big tea lover too!! But, I have a weakness for this coffee here:
Now, that’s serious business!!!

— Since the question was “Which coffee”, I am totally taking the point!

Final:
