Plus a Visa Cash Card Giveaway!
Okay, just one more page.
Fine, I’ll put this book down at the end of this chapter.
None of these things ended up happening. I was about halfway through Catch a Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt, and I desperately needed my rest. Miracle of miracles, both my kids were asleep and I should have been too.
But I just couldn’t bring myself to put the book down, I was getting to the good part, and I wanted to know what was going to happen.
So I realize I am doing this review a bit backwards. Let’s backtrack shall we?
In beautiful Colorado Springs, Dr. Kendall Haynes has a life she’s settled for. Great patients, a rooftop pool, and a loveable Goldendoodle who makes her days interesting. It’s the life she knows, the life she’s fine with.
And then her sister asks for her grandmother’s ring. The one Kendall’s Mina left to her and her specifically. Will she ever have a man she loves enough so she can finally put that ring on her finger?
Griffin Walker is an Air Force pilot. There’s just one problem—he’s been grounded due to a severe case of Vertigo. To top it off, Griffin is stuck raising his teenage brother, Ian. When Griffin and Kendall meet, it’s under less than ideal circumstances. The two would like nothing more than to part ways and be done with it. Griffin is silent and guarded. Kendall is outspoken and career-driven. And yet, the two keep running into each other thanks to their love for one thing, and it isn’t Kendall’s Goldendodle.
Sparks will fly and plans will change as Kendall and Griffin realize what a falling star really looks like, and that, sometimes, dreams can come true in the way you least expect.
What I liked…
So obviously I LOVED this book. I read somewhere that there are two types of stories: character driven and conflict driven. I was pleased to find that Catch a Falling Star was both. Beth’s characters are real and flawed and oh so relatable. On top of that, she spices things up with conflict after conflict. I don’t want to give the story away, of course, but I will say that I wanted to slap Kendall’s spoiled rotten sister. Oooh, she made me mad!
Yes. When a book is this good that’s all I can say. Read it. You’ll love it!
