    A new favorite Vogt novel I loved the the banter between Kendall and Griffin They meet in a rather unusual way and develop a friendship very reluctantly The inclusion of Ian in the novel added depth to the story I adored the ending.

    Beth Vogt s debut novel Wish You Were Here was great A good story Catch a Falling Star superb I couldn t put the novel down Could Not I don t have stronger words to describe how much this novel captured me oh wait I ll say this I could have dealt with one or five of those kisses Beth Vogt has hit her sweet spot Talk about a great story I really need a stronger arsenal of vivid descriptors for novels I love Griffin and Kendall are characters that go deep in their characterization The dialogue oh the dialogue Snappy, quick and perfect for every single moment I don t think one word was wasted, each one built upon the other to create a story so so wonderful to spend time reading, I couldn t put it down Oh, wait, I ve already said that.Characters are great Writing is superb Themes are clearly evident and excellently woven through the story Descriptions take you right into the heart of the story while not distracting anything from it I have a feeling THIS is the voice, people are going to love discovering on book shelves And talk about a romance I don t think it can get much better except, I could have had a few kisses broken record, yeah I know, what s your point Oh sigh do I have to shut up now I really could go on and on let me say this I had an advance ecopy I m going to buy the book And get it autographed This review is my honest opinion Thanks to the publishers through Netgalley for my copy to review.

    I m so glad that I finally got around to reading Catch a Falling Star it has been sitting on my shelf for WAY too long ahem, since 2013 While I wasn t totally feeling the characters at first, as I got further into the story, I came to enjoy the unique aspects that made them tick So though it was kind of a slow start, I ended up finding this story enjoyable and easy to read.One of my favorite things are the ages of the characters It was refreshing to read about mature characters with life experience, versus a story about a barely 20 something nothing is wrong with those stories, I enjoy many of them fact, but it was a welcome change for me to have characters in their late 30s, with fulfillment outside of romance, because, go figure, that s actually possible and realistic.My other favorite thing about the novel is the unique way that the relationship developed Their initial meeting is very tense because of a medical emergency, and their subsequent interactions are entertaining they re both a bit stubborn the dialogue had me chuckling several times.There was one thing that seemed a bit abrupt and out of character for what I expected of Kendall I also wanted resolution and or closure between Kendall and her sister, and I felt that particularly one scene between them was not addressed as deeply as it could have been If there had been that feeling of closure, I may have felt better about the decision she made that seemed very spur of the moment.Griffin especially has a past that weighs on him heavily, clouding his judgement for his present circumstances I enjoyed watching him come to certain realizations I really enjoyed his friendship with Doug Griffin s brother Ian adds a great layer of depth to the story, and the tie in with Evie s story made it even poignant Catch a Falling Star is a sweet love story, with some deeper issues forgiveness, adoption, and disappointment especially that keep it from being all about the romance I look forward to reading another Vogt novel in the future.

    Kendall Haynes and Griffin Walker have one thing in common their lives did not go according to their plans, and now they have to face the reality She a successful doctor will probably never find the right man for her, and he a pilot will probably never fly again But when everything seems lost they meet and start hoping again.This book really surprised me I was ready to give it three stars and define it as an OK read But at about 65% in I had a Kindle version , things started to get faster and everything became engaging Hence, I completely changed my mind The only reason why I did not give it a five is because in the beginning I was not hooked and to get the highest rating I need to get involved from the first page.Kendall is well, I think that every woman who decides to focus on her career only instead of having a family can easily relate to her She is thirty six, she is a doctor, she runs a successful clinic but she is alone She gets back home and the only thing waiting for her is her funny and undisciplined dog Which is OK if you feel good about it But Kendall feels empty She longs for someone who holds her, who takes care of her, who cares enough to start a family with her And she thinks she has found it when she meets an old acquaintance who has recently moved to her town Big Mistake Ever Why Because instead of following God s plans for her, she basically runs towards a sought after happiness, guided by her wishes only which, of course, will lead her to unhappiness.Griffin is everything Kendall should avoid but at the same time the only person her heart desperately wants He is disagreeable, argues with her every time they meet and clearly does not want to have anything to do with her Then why is she so attracted to this mysterious guy that does anything he can to stay away from her Why can she not get him out of her mind Is helping his younger brother the only reason why she keeps bumping into him What is God trying to tell her I loved these two characters with all their flaws and fears I loved how they managed to always be strong whenever something bad came their way And I loved the relationship between Griffin and his sixteen year old brother Ian It was very complicated but also very sweet and beautiful Some of my favourite scenes involved those two This was definitely a book that made me think a lot about my own life We struggle to make our dreams come true without realizing that we cannot have it all, or better that we cannot have it the way we want it There is out there, especially for those who have faith and believe in God We just need to stop focusing on us only and live our life the way He wants Catch a Falling Star is truly an inspiring read which I would recommend to each person in need of a thought provoking book that also gives hope Besides, if you are like me, you will definitely want to read the last chapter PS A quick note about Kendall s mother and sister I loathed them, period Such shallow people

    Dr Kendall Haynes is beautiful, smart, and successful yet at 36 she wonders, when it will be her turn to get married and have a family of her own The book starts out with celebrating her birthday with her three best friends, Melissa, Sonia and Rachel Each of them started out as single doctors, but before the night ends Kendall learns that she is the last of the group without a husband Then she also learns that her kid sister is also getting engaged Despite all of this being good news, it only makes her question what s in store for her beyond a fabulous career she is passionate about.While Kendall is enjoying her evening out with her friends, she notices a young man starts having an allergic reaction and she immediately responds This is her first opportunity at meeting Griffin Walker and his teen brother, Ian Their parents have died recently and Griffin has become Ian s guardian Unfortunately, Griffin doesn t want this responsibility because all he has ever known is being a pilot and he barely knows his younger brother Besides, there is too much of an age difference for any relationship between them to blossom and Griffin is eager to get back to piloting a plane just as soon as his medical evaluation is due He doesn t have time for a younger brother or a serious relationship.I didn t connect with this story right away and it was a chore for me to like Griffin in the story I finally did come around, but the guy made it challenging for me However, once I got past a few details in the plot and understood where the story was going, I was eager to see its conclusion I absolutely loved Kendall and related to her the most Despite her faith in God, she just didn t understand why there is no husband on the radar and she cherishes a family heirloom entrusted to her that her younger sister now demands Kendall is finally able to see God s truth about herself and is able to let go, this release brings her true freedom and later on true love That s one thing you can rely on with Beth Vogt, this is a book YOU will experience with ALL of your emotions This author does not understand writing nonchalant characters, you will either love them or want to throttle them there is one character in this book that I saw as untrustworthy and at one point I cheered when Kendall dealt with him It turns out that Griffin is not the jerk I believed him to be, although he sure was convincing He has suffered through brokenness and simply wants his life to be comfortable with flying He surprised me in a good way and I don t think I ve ever encountered a character like him before, I usually fall for the male lead right away in a book This guy did not have me at hello, but he finally won me over towards the end.Despite the fact that I didn t connect with this book right away, I was deeply touched by the issues and values each character brings to the plot This is a romance book, but there is so much to it than that This is a story that will touch on serious topics such as adoption, vertigo type of dizziness in which a person inappropriately experiences the perception of motion usually spinning due to dysfunction in vestibular system often associated with nausea and vomiting, as well as a balance disorder, causing difficulties standing or walking from Wikipedia , death in the family, the military, letting go, trusting God, and betrayal It also includes a wonderful doctor s office, an adorable dog, the love of Jeeps, two hurting brothers that need love, one family heirloom that causes a bit of trouble, and one woman who has the strength to put God first in her life and watch Him move on her behalf You won t just be entertained, deeply moved, and pleased by this story I want to thank the publisher and NetGalley for the review copy they provided I was not required to write a positive review The opinions expressed are my own.

    Kinda bittersweetthis is the last of Vogt s novels I hadn t read since I discovered her writing a few short months ago Now I have to wait for the next one to come out My niece s name is Kendall, and she reminded me of her, with her short stature, spunk, high heels, and macho vehicle I bonded with this character right away and loved every minute of the ride.Griffin Walkerwell, not so much But I liked him well enough I was willing to watch him wake up and give him a chance to grow And he took it The other guy seemed a phony right away to mebut I ve known too many of his typeI think I d have thrown the book across the room if the two of them had ended up together Loved this If you like contemporary romance, military guys, cute doctors, or Colorado, you will too.

    It takes quite a bit for a contemporary fiction novel to catch my interest, as it is not a favorite genre of mine Catch a Falling Star has a good story, good characters, and a good message A big load of just good , that needed to be great Kendall is a 36 year old professional, choosing to focus her life on her doctoring career Kendall quickly realizes that she desires a family and someone special to share her life with Griffin, a man with a hard exterior, detests the idea of having something with someone and pushes everyone away at all costs At 38, he is unsure of his future and career as he currently is unfit to fly and continue his piloting career It was refreshing to read a story with mature characters dealing with serious topics including adoption The side story with Evie Logan was probably the most interesting aspect to the novel for me I also enjoyed the character development of Griffin and Ian, but Kendall s character remained flat and un interesting Without divulging the ending, let s just say it was not for me The ending was something out of a cookie cutter cheesy romance scene, and I couldn t help but make gagging noises out loud as I was reading it For sure one of the main reasons I was not able to give Catch a Falling Star a 4 star review I may pick up another novel from Vogt in the future, as I feel that with another novel I could potentially like this author s work.

    What an absolutely fun read I liked how Kendall was sassy, yet vulnerable at times, and wanted to follow God s lead in her life I liked how Griffin learned what Ian really needed from him, and how Ian was willing to use his own story of heartache to be a blessing to Evie I think the way all the characters wove into each others lives was really cool.This was my first Beth K Vogt book, but it certain will not be my last

    A sweet romance with a convoluted plot.

    Catch a Falling Star is my kind of contemporary romance There wasn t anything I disliked about it Even the subplot about the other doctor didn t need to come to a final conclusion since it wasn t key to the love developing between the heroine and the hero I loved watching their relationship transform him over time I was thrilled that Kendall finally found a relationship that made sense, but also filled her heart with the completion she desired She wasn t pining away for a man, but it did bother her that her life wasn t as complete as she hoped it would be by the time she was in her late thirties The cool thing was I didn t feel like I was reading about older people falling in love I m in my late forties, so I can still enjoy an almost forty couple in a romance and still feel like they are young Older couples, like in their sixties, are not something I enjoy reading yet.The subplot with Evie, Kendall s employee, was heart felt as well It moved me to tears when she and Ian, Griffin s brother, talked about his childhood before adoption Having done many adoptions myself, I saw exactly what kills many adoptive families before they get very far The author did a great job showing that it wouldn t be easy and that rejection is part of the deal as the child heals over time There is a way to get beyond that if everyone sticks it out and reacts the way the child needs Anyway, that was beautifully done.What I liked best about the story was probably how the faith element was present, but not overpowering to the point it was the entire focus of the story Kendall and Griffin seemed realistic as characters because they had realistic thoughts I liked that they were both believers Kendall s relationship with the other doctor showed that saying you are a Christian doesn t keep you from using others for your own gain Her heart knew Griffin was the one for her I m glad she finally listened to him Oh, and that dog Sully was a sweetie I think her relationship with her dog made the story better because it added a side to her you might not otherwise see.
