About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Catch a Falling Star by Beth K. Vogt

My Thoughts:

Beth K. Vogt knows that everyone deserves a happy ending.  In Catch a Falling Star she tells the story of Dr. Kendall Haynes, an attractive 36 year old physician who ponders life and what God has planned for her.  She adores her Goldendoodle "Sully", has a knack for fixing Jeeps (this turns out the be quite important!) and has a no nonsense approach to relationships.  Kendall also longs to discover her happily ever after as she watches all her friends walk down the aisle.  Griffin Walker, a 38 year old (hunky!) Air Force pilot who has found himself to be the guardian to his 16 year old adopted brother, Ian, is lonely and unsure of what God has in store for him. Vertigo has grounded him from flying and the frustration is almost too much for him to take.  Kendall and Griffin appear to be complete opposites and that's what makes them so great together!  Of course, there's the matter of Dr. Heath Parker...

I adored Kendall Haynes.  She's smart, independent and not afraid to speak her mind.  She cares deeply for her patients, coworkers, friends and God.  I loved reading her reflections on the past- memories of rebuilding her Jeep with her Dad and fairy tales and memories shared with her precious Mina.  I admired the spunk Kendall displayed when she refused to give up Mina's ring!  Beth K. Vogt has a gift for creating characters with unique story lines that touch your heart.  Wish You Were Here (about a runaway bride) and now Catch a Falling Star- a physician who fears she may have sacrificed love for a career.  Please keep your fabulous stories coming, Beth K. Vogt!:)

What 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.

Beth K. Vogt believes happy endings aren't limited to novels. She provides her readers with a happily ever after woven through with humor, reality, and God's lavish grace. Married to her husband Rob for 31 years, as the mom of three adult children and one 10-year-old, Beth embraces her less-than-perfect life. Her degree in journalism helped establish her as a nonfiction writer. Beth was the editor of Connections, the leadership magazine for Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) International, for four years and continues to be a consulting editor, as well as a bimonthly columnist for MOMSnext, their ezine for moms of school-age children. After focusing on magazine writing and her book Baby Changes Everything: Embracing and Preparing for Motherhood after 35 (thanks to a surprise pregnancy at 41), Beth turned a season of burnout into her debut novel, Wish You Were Here.
