Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of catch A Falling Star as a member of LitFuse. All opinions are strictly my own.
What does a girl do when life doesn’t go according to her plan?At 36, Kendall Haynes has seen some of her dreams come true. She’s a family physician helping kids with severe allergies and asthma achieve more fulfilling lives—a childhood struggle she knows all too well. But the feeling of being “the kid never picked” looms large when romance continues to evade her and yet another one of her closest friends gets engaged. Are Kendall’s dreams of having it all—a career, a husband, children—nothing more than childish wishing upon a star? Should she hold out for her elusive Plan A? Dust off Plan B? Or is it time to settle? God says he knows the plans he has for her—why can’t Kendall figure them out and be content with her life?
Griffin Walker prefers flying solo—both as an Air Force pilot and in his personal life. But a wrong choice and health problems pulled him out of the cockpit. His attempts to get out of “flying a desk” are complicated by his parents’ death—making Griffin the reluctant guardian of his sixteen-year-old brother, Ian. How did his life get so off course? Can God get his life back on track … or has there been a divine plan all along?
Catch a Falling Star reminds readers that romance isn’t just for twenty-somethings and that sometimes letting go of your “wish I may, wish I might” dreams is the only way to embrace everything God has waiting for you.
I am a really big fan of Beth Vogt. I previously reviewed Wish You Were Here and loved it. Catch A Falling Star is no different.
I love when a story takes 2 characters that aren’t looking for love and throws them together unexpectedly. Sure, that is how most romance novels play out but Catch A Falling Star is a bit different in that both of these characters, Kendall and Griffin are well established, a bit more mature and living complete lives. I love how Beth put them together and also gave us another character with Griffin’s adopted brother, Ian.
Life sometimes throws obstacles at us and God’s plans are sometimes much different than what we would have laid out for ourselves. That is the case for Kendall and Griffin and I love how what they thought they wanted and what they end up with is two very different things. The romance in this novel is spot on for two 30 somethings with careers and life goals. It isn’t super mushy. It isn’t obscene. It is just right.
