Beth Vogt’s Catch a Falling Star

About

Is life about accomplishing plans . . . or wishes coming true . . . or something more?

Dr. Kendall Haynes’s plans to have it all—a career, a husband, a family—are eluding her. Now that she’s thirty-six, she needs to stop wishing upon a star and face reality: Some dreams just never come true.

Air Force pilot Griffin Walker prefers flying solo in the air and on the ground—until a dangerous choice ejects him from the cockpit. His life becomes even more complicated after the sudden death of his parents makes him the guardian of his sixteen-year-old brother. There’s no way his life will ever get back on course now.

When their lives collide during a near tragedy, Kendall and Griffin must decide if they can embrace the unexpected changes God has waiting for them.

Review

Now this was a book I couldn’t put down! I found Kendall to really be a woman of her times as she has to deal with having an important profession and her desire to have a family. I really enjoyed the journey that she went through as she realized that just because she’s single doesn’t mean that she’s half a person; that God has given her a life and she doesn’t have to wait on a man for it to start. I found Griffin utterly fascinating and really I only wanted to know more about his life and his background. I really liked the focus on forgiving yourself and moving past your past. God does, so why don’t you? I also liked to watch his relationship unfold with Ian. If I had any problem with this book, it was that I felt there needed to be one more scene to kind of solidify the relationship between Griffin and Kendall. I don’t want to give anything away, but I felt that Griffin could have been there a bit more for her at one point in the novel. That said, fantastic book. I’m now sold on Beth Vogt and I look forward to her next book!

**I received this novel from Netgalley. My opinion was not affected in anyway.**
