Publisher's Summary

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 20 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.

Fun Tropical Romance

I really enjoyed this book. It was a clean romance, and I could really relate to Claire. I had to laugh whenever Jim put his foot in his mouth. It totally reminded me of my spouse.
If you're looking for a great story about family and reconnecting after love is lost, listen to Destination Wedding. Even better if you can listen to it poolside while on a tropical vacation!

Nice feel good story

Destination Wedding by Deanna Lynn Sletten was an enjoyable book. It’s the type of story that’s predicable in a feel good sort of way. You know what you expect to happen and are joyfully anticipating it. I love the humor interjected between the parents of the bride.
Although the destination wedding was for their daughter, the story was really about Claire and James, the parents of the bride. Divorced for years, each has current relationship problems and when thrown together all week, tensions from the past flair as well as other types of tension—the good kind!
I think what I liked most about this book was that it gave perspective on the intricacies of what makes a marriage fail and how a lack of communication can destroy it. I thought there was a good amount of realism in their conversation and rehashing of what went wrong. In the end, it was the feel good story I was longing for.
Now, what I didn’t like. I’m sorry to say that the narrator almost ruined it for me. Her pacing and rhythm was unnatural and at the beginning she was speaking too fast. I felt as though she was simply reading the book and not acting it out. Her inflections were almost always the same when she was in narrator mode. When she spoke in character, she did a much better job and varied the voices nicely. I did adjust after awhile but I would not be inclined to listen to another book by this narrator.
I still highly recommend this audiobook for the story and maybe other listeners’ ears will feel differently than mine.
