Totally captivated by the characters and story in “Catch a Falling Star” that I breezed through its pages with little effort. I personally liked the fact that the primary characters were a bit older than those I usually find in romance novels. This did not seem unusual to me as I have noticed many young people these days who are not rushing into marriage but taking their time to establish a career and/or be sure they have made a wise choice in their life partner.

Kendall was special – a woman who genuinely cared about others and found it easy to relate to them due to her own past health issues and the loss of her father. Nevertheless, Kendall yearned for a husband and family and often questioned why God has passed her by when everyone else seemed to have someone. Although Griffin came across as somewhat self-absorbed and prickly, it was soon evident that his gruffness was directly caused by regret over past choices and his lack of confidence in his worth to others and to God. I enjoyed watching the interaction between Kendall and Griffin as well as seeing the light come on for both of them as the Lord worked in their lives. On the other hand, I did not trust that man Heath from the beginning and hoped against hope that Kendall would quickly see through his fake veneer. The side plot involving Kendall’s secretary Evie seemed unrelated at first but eventually became a relevant part of the story.

“Catch a Falling Star” is a wonderfully realistic novel that illustrates how we must sometimes give up our dreams and plans in order to receive God’s best for us. I enthusiastically recommend this book.

Catch A Falling StarWhat 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.
