Title: Catch a Falling Star: A Novel

Author: Beth K. Vogt

My Review: 

Catch A Falling Star: A Novel by Beth K. Vogt is a contemporary Christian romance which is not usually my favorite genre. I am so glad that I took a chance on this book because I really enjoyed it. The story features a strong female character, Dr. Kendall Haynes who has a successful medical practice but longs to also have a husband and family. She is 36 years old and worries that she will never “have it all” because she is still single while her younger sister is getting married.

Griffin Walker is a military pilot that gets grounded and unexpectedly becomes the legal guardian of his teenage brother. It seems as though these challenges in his life have become overwhelming and he isn’t sure how to make it all right.

Kendall and Griffin are brought together during a medical emergency but it doesn’t look like love (or even friendship) is in the cards for this duo. Will God bring them together so that these two people will have a shot at love and a life together?

The author weaves a very interesting, plausible story that kept me wanting to read more so that I would ultimately know the ending. I love that the characters are successful, smart and “good” people yet like many of us they are also flawed. As the mother of a severe asthmatic, I appreciate that the main character has a specialty practice and part of the storyline focused on this debilitating, chronic illness.

I found it interesting that the author, Beth K. Vogt primarily writes fiction and had no plans to ever write fiction. I am delighted that she changed her mind because this was a wonderful book and I look forward to reading more of her novels in the near future.

Catch A Falling Star has a SRP of $14.99 U.S./$16.99 Canada for the trade paperback.

    She’s a real woman giving advice to women…a national speaker and writer…who learned that “Never” shouldn’t be said. Loved reading her bio. It was informative and entertaining.

  3. Jennifer Ryder says

    Ha Ha! She said she’d never marry a doctor or someone in the military or have kids but she ended up doing all three. Guess that’s why they say to never say never!!

  4. Dorothy Teel says

    I learned that Beth said she would never do alot of things and she ended up doing them from writing fiction, marrying a military man (US Air Force and having kids, I like that “. Beth has discovered that God’s best often waits behind the doors marked “Never.”,

    I like her sense of humor..Beth met her husband Rob when he knocked her down at a karate studio. They’ve been married for 34 years. They have four children, ranging in ages from 30, 27, 25 and – thanks to a funny thing happening on their way to the empty nest—a 12-year-old. :-)

  7. Stephanie Larison says

    I learned: She’s the wife of an Air Force physician (now in solo practice) who said she’d never marry a doctor—or anyone in the military.

  8. Catherine says

    non-fiction author and editor who said she’d never write fiction. She said she’d never do a lot of things she is currently living.

  9. Brenda Elsner says

    I learned that the phrase Never say Never can be true. Beth said she would never marry a doctor or military man, never have kids, and never write a fiction novel. She did all 3. It is why I always tell people to never say never, because you never know.
