Blog Tour - Catch a Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt

Litfuse Publicity Group provided me with a free copy of this book for review. I was not obligated to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.

About Catch a Falling Star:

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.

My Thoughts About the Book:
Catch a Falling Star is a sweet and heartwarming story. I appreciate the fact that it is a clean, romantic read with a strong Christian influence.

Dr. Kendall Haynes is an intelligent, strong woman who places great value on her faith and moral character. She is dedicated to her patients and especially loves helping children. Although her life hasn't ended up exactly how she planned, I like that she still has hope of finding someone with whom to share her life.

Griffin Walker's character, at first, comes across as a little self-centered and cold. But, as I learned more about him, it became clear that he is a good man who just needs to come to terms with where he is at in his life. While he is not at all open to the idea of finding love, it finds him anyway and ultimately saves him.

Even though the story is a little predictable, I still really enjoyed it and was hooked right away. It's a quick and easy read - I finished it in one day - and I found myself invested in the characters and rooting for them all the way.
