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.

Hugs and introductions were dispersed all around and then they were hurried outside on the tarmac to board the tiny plane. Again, Claire hadn't seen Jim or Diane. Maybe his plane from Chicago was late. Maybe they'd have to come on a later flight to the Bahamas. Claire secretly hoped so.
I absolutely adored Destination Wedding. Why you ask? Well because its all about second chances, forgiveness and learning that no matter how young or old you are, everyone makes mistakes.
Leading lady Claire is jetting off to the Bahamas for her daughters wedding, one week of absolute paradise ending with her daughter saying I do. Theres one problem though Jim her ex husband and the father of their child will be there and he left her one day after 20 years of marriage for a younger woman. She shouldn't be worried she has a good predictable man at home wanting to marry her, wanting her to be his companion. Is that all someone needs, a companion?
Jim made the biggest mistake of his life leaving Claire, when his doubts and ego got to him he latched on to a young woman from his office who stroked his ego and made him feel young, unlike claire who was setting up her business and was always so busy. He should of never left her, he should of been brave, should've told her he felt lost, felt like he was old. Now he is off to give his daughter away and his new wife won't be there because once again Jim is getting a divorce
The two of them are really not where they should be, they aren't with the people they should be and when they end up brought closer by the destination wedding sparks fly, old emotions bubble to the surface and there may just be a chance for Jim and claire to find what they both are looking for.
Beautifully written with humour and heart warming characters you will find yourself lost in the Bahamas rooting for Jim & Claire. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was so glad I got to read it. If you like romance novels this is for you, its not the normal boy meets girl theres a problem but they overcome it story. Its boy meets girl, marries her has a baby then throws it all away kind of story.
Sometimes even the people you love the most can disappoint you, they can let you down and make the biggest mistakes but sometimes if you're very lucky you can find love and redemption at a destination wedding!
