Catch a Falling Star
CATCH A FALLING STAR
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?
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.
Superb!!! The romance is toe-curling, fainting couch swoonworthy! I love how the author builds their relationship out of nothing. I've never met a hero and heroine who disliked each other quite so much at their first meet. :-) Kendall's hard put to find a kind word for Griffin. He couldn't care less. Not an auspicious beginning. But fate keeps throwing them in each other's path and soon they bond over a jeep. But it's just friendship. Griffin has no intention of getting involved with anyone. Ever. Again. Kendall has finally met a handsome doctor type who seems too good to be true. But again fate intervenes.
There are some surprising twists in the plot which lead to a whole lot of heart ache. But reader, don't despair, you're in Vogt's capable hands. She weaves a story of wonder and awe filled with second chances.
