You Can't Hurry Love

You Can’t Hurry Love – Beth K. Vogt –  Howard Books – Published 3 May 2016



You Can’t Hurry Love is the second enovella in Beth K. Vogt’s Destination Wedding series. Elisabeth Straker has embraced her “always the bridesmaid, never the bride” role in life. But when she runs into the man who broke her heart years ago, Elisabeth questions her past—and future—choices.

Is love enough to help us face our mistakes—and the challenges of a long distance relationship?

When Elisabeth arrives in Denver to be the maid of honor at her friend’s wedding, the last thing she expects is to run into Jamie Travers, her high school boyfriend, who is also the groom’s best man. A bitter breakup when they were in college destroyed their hopes for a future together. Seven years later, is it possible for Elisabeth and Jamie to forgive one another and have a second chance at love?

My thoughts

I totally enjoyed this charming novella. As always, Beth K. Vogt provides readers with lovely, relatable characters and sweet romance. Yet even in these few pages, there are complications and fully developed relationships. The story and romance never felt rushed or contrived, and while I would have loved to read more of this story, it was perfectly paced for a novella.   

Elisabeth and Jamie were high school sweethearts. Their relationship fell apart during the time they spent separated by long distances. Now, years on, they meet at their best friends’ wedding. But when Jamie pretends to not know Elisabeth, she knows that the past hurts from their broken love story will need to be addressed if they can ever resume their friendship.

This was a charming love story. I loved Elisabeth and quickly fell for Jamie. There is also a great collection of secondary characters.  Overall, a great addition to the Destination Wedding series.
