About the Book:
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.

I really enjoyed having 'older' characters in this story. There aren't a lot of books with middle aged, single main characters. And better yet, for Kendall to still have her moral compass right on! Loved that. Griffin and Kendall start out on a very rough foot when he unknowingly gives his brother avocado which he is highly allergic too. Griffin knows absolutely nothing about his adopted brother Ian and feels very incompetent to care for him, let alone have a relationship with him. It is a blessing that they happen upon Kendall and she cares for Ian and his situation. The dynamics between Kendall and Griffin are well written for their ages. I think being older that they would not be all wooing over each other, and be kind of set in their ways. Neither one really looking for a relationship that seems to have smacked up against them. Love the dialogs about Jeeps, as that is the car I want some day!
