Catch A Falling Star

Have you ever seen a falling star? Have you ever made a wish upon a star? Do you believe that those wishes can come true?

Too often in a woman's life, we come to believe all those fairy tales our parents read to us. That there is a happily ever after waiting for all of us, someday, some where, but is it really true?

Kendall Haynes has been wondering about that now that she is thirty-six and it seems like everyone around her is finding their own happily ever after. All of her friends, co-workers and now even her younger sister is getting married while Kendall has nothing going on except an exceptional career as a doctor running her own private practice in Colorado. She's beginning to wonder if all those fairy tales that she heard growing up are simply just stories, ones that will never come true. No marriage, no falling head over heels in love and no family of her own. Just her and Sully, her overly eager goldendoodle. There aren't even any prospects on her immediate horizon.

Gearing up for a dinner with her girlfriends at On the Border to plan their upcoming all girls vacation, she is immediately called into help when a teenage boy seems to be having an allergic reaction to his food and is finding it difficult to breath. Apparently even his father sitting with him, can't recognize the signs and when she intervenes and administers first aid while having him call 911, she is more than upset with his father. However, when Griffin Walker tells her that he is not his father, but brother, she still finds it hard that he doesn't realize how critical food allergies can be and how Ian, his younger brother could have died if not for her quick thinking and intervention.

She soon finds an unlikely prospect on her horizon when it seems like the only thing her and Griffin will ever become is acquaintances, if not enemies. Griffin has his own set of worries with not only dealing with the fact he has been appointed guardian of his younger brother Ian after their parents died in a plane crash, he is also facing his own crisis. He's been grounded as an Air Force pilot fighting bouts of vertigo, until he is well enough to fly again. However it doesn't seem likely that that will ever happen and now matter where he goes in the small town of Colorado, he seems to always wind up face to face with Dr. Kendall Haynes.

I received Catch A Falling Star by author Beth K. Vogt compliments of Howard Books, a division of Simon and Schuster Publishers for my honest review and received no monetary compensation for a favorable review. This is my second book of Beth's and I love the interactions she creates with her characters. They don't fall in love at first sight and in this case, it will take more than a chance encounter to get these two strong willed characters to see what God has placed right in front of them. This is a great story about what goes on in some adoption cases where things don't always go smoothly for the adoptive parents. I think the story is genuine and realistic and gives the reader a different mindset into the lives of adoptive parents than they may have had before reading this one. I know it did for me. I personally rate this one a 4.5 out of 5 stars and can't wait for many more novels from Beth K. Vogt in the future.
