Catch A Falling Star: A Blog Tour and Book Review

About The Book:

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.

About The Author:

Beth K. Vogt is a non-fiction author and editor who said she'd never write fiction. She's the wife of an Air Force family physician (now in solo practice), though she said she'd never marry a doctor-or anyone in the military. She's a mom of four, though she said she'd never have kids. She's discovered that God's best often waits behind the doors marked "Never." Her contemporary romance novel, "Wish You Were Here", debuted in May 2012 (Howard Books), and "Catch a Falling Star" releases May 2013. An established magazine writer and former editor of Connections, the leadership magazine for MOPS International, Beth is also the Skills Coach for My Book Therapy, the writing community founded by best-selling author Susan May Warren. 

My Review:

I have previously read and reviewed Wish You Were Here, Ms. Vogt's debut fiction work and she has quickly become one of my top 10 favorite authors of the last couple years. I was very excited to read her most recent work, Catch A Falling Star, recently and can't wait to share my thoughts!

First of all, my favorite aspect of the book was the characters! They were all charming and real-to-life, which made them very easy to relate to. You will laugh and cry cheering each of them on as they move past mistakes made to a future that only God had a hand in orchestrating! A great reminder for us all. The development of the relationships between the characters was written beautifully, without feeling forced or rushed. A great love story indeed exists in this book. The characters were real, with flaws and all, making the reader feel as though we could completely relate to what they were experiencing. A great way to write a book for sure. 

 The writing style is one that I love, and I felt that I was like a fly on the wall, experiencing each scene along with the characters. This is a fun, quick read, perfect for summer reading or travel reading.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
