Catch A Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt, Book review and GIVEAWAY

Publisher: Howard Books; Original edition (May 7, 2013)
ISBN-13: 978-1451660272


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.

 (USAF - A10)

Here are my thoughts:

Beth K. Vogt might very well call herself a non fiction author but her heartfelt prose shines with love, hope, humour and a good amount of  faith! 
'Catch A Falling Star' is about imperfect relationships, the deeds we wish we could see undone and the courage we must find to redirect ourselves when God has other plans for us!

At 36 years old, Dr. Haynes might just be more dynamite than USAF pilot Walker has had to deal with in a while. The petite physician has a thriving clinic in Colorado Springs and the respect of her community and has a few dreams of her own. Her faith is important to her and all her employees know it firsthand!

Rugged Griffin Walker is flying a desk at the Academy, dealing with a teenager's somber moods following their parents' death and carries a chip on his shoulder when it comes to marriage. He has a few home truths coming his way and it is all Griffin Walker can handle. He is also a man of faith.

But for being Griffin's young brother's physician, Kendall Haynes and the strong silent pilot's only common ground seems to be their mutual love for jeeps!

Beth does a superb job of casting a mentor for Griffin Walker, their relationship a stabilizing point for the pilot. I found also the inclusion of adoption related problems, allergies and non approved FDA products, and in particular the idea of vertigo most interesting. It is the little details Beth incorporates in her novel which made it all the more a joy to read for me! (Beth, the story behind the ring(s) and the tattoo were priceless!)

This might only be Beth K. Vogt's second novel ('Wish You Were Here' -  review HERE for those of you who missed it) but she proves once again 'there is more to happily ever after than the faerie tales tells us'.

A delightfuly book to be enjoyed by one and all!

5 Stars!!
