Book Review & #Giveaway: Destination Wedding by Deanna Lynn Sletten

About the Book:

Claire Martin's life is perfect, or at least she tells herself it is. She owns a successful clothing boutique, has a steady, dependable boyfriend, and a beautiful grown daughter who is about to be married. Sure, Claire's husband of twenty years left her for a younger woman four years ago, but that is all in the past. Now, Claire is looking forward to her daughter's Bahama wedding and spending a week in paradise. The only thing Claire dreads is her ex-husband and his wife will also be on the island. Claire is determined to make the best of it, though. What Claire doesn't realize is ignoring her ex-husband for the week is going to be impossible.

James Martin's life is a mess. His wife of less than four years has made him the most miserable man on earth and now they are in the middle of a messy divorce. He's happy that he can forget her for a week as he goes off to the Bahamas to attend his lovely daughter's wedding. Jim is embarrassed to admit to his daughter and his ex-wife, Claire, that he made the biggest mistake of his life when he left her for another woman, so he makes up a story as to why his new wife didn't come along. When he and Claire are unexpectedly forced upon each other, Jim soon realizes what he's lost and he begins to wonder if he can find a way back into Claire's heart.

My review of the Book:

Destination Wedding was really an enjoyable read.   It was thoroughly entertaining and I loved being able to read about love gone wrong and seeing that the grass may not always be greener on the other side!  Not being in my 20's anymore I also loved the fact that this romance had more mature characters in it.  It just goes to show that even if one is more experienced in life, you still make mistakes in life.  This was the first time that I have ever read a book by Deanna Lynn Sletten and I know why her last book was a top seller!  Her writing style keeps you entertained and entranced in the world that you do not want to put it down!
