Catch a Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt

Successful career gal Kendall Haynes is tired of wishing on stars for a home and a family. Can God's dreams for her be even better than her own?
What does a girl do when life doesn't go according to her plan? At thirty-six, 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 are Kendall's dreams of having it all-a career, a husband, children-nothing more than a childhood fantasy? 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 he get his life back on track...or has there been a divine plan all along?

About the Author
Beth K. Vogt believes happy endings aren't limited to novels. She provides her readers with a happily ever after woven through with humor, reality, and God's lavish grace. Married to her husband Rob for 31 years, as the mom of three adult children and one 10-year-old, Beth embraces her less-than-perfect life. Her degree in journalism helped establish her as a nonfiction writer. Beth was the editor of Connections, the leadership magazine for Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) International, for four years and continues to be a consulting editor, as well as a bimonthly columnist for MOMSnext, their ezine for moms of school-age children. After focusing on magazine writing and her book Baby Changes Everything: Embracing and Preparing for Motherhood after 35 (thanks to a surprise pregnancy at 41), Beth turned a season of burnout into her debut novel, Wish You Were Here.

Here is my review of this terrific romance:
First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Beth K. Vogt and her publisher for sending me a copy of "Catch a Falling Star" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.
Beth K. Vogt’s “Catch a Falling Star” is a delightful romance that is difficult to put down.  Dr. Kendall Haynes had dreams for her life that included marriage and family.  But another birthday has come and gone without the appearance of lasting romance on the horizon.  Lieutenant Colonel Griffin Walker has also lost sight of the horizon.  The medically grounded Air Force pilot has his hands full with a vertigo diagnosis and as the guardian of his adopted brother since their parents died four months ago.  The lives of the doctor and the pilot collide and neither of them will ever be the same.

This is a well-written, engaging novel that draws the reader so deeply into the tale that you’ll be surprised and how much time and how many pages have passed.  The likable characters are thick and colorful.  The situations are plausible.  The romance is chaste.  The conflicts are emotional because of the reader’s investment in the tale.  This is a thoroughly entertaining way to spend a few hours over the weekend.
