Successful career gal Kendall Haynes is tired of wishing on stars for a home and a family. Can God’s dreams for her be even better than her own?
What does a girl do when life doesn’t go according to her plan? At thirty-six, 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 are Kendall’s dreams of having it all—a career, a husband, children—nothing more than a childhood fantasy? 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 he get his life back on track…or has there been a divine plan all along?
I loved Beth's first book Wish You Were Here, and I knew she wasn't going any where, and this book just proved she will continue to write great stories with great characters.
Griffin and Kendall are two very strong characters who are not going to bend. They like things their way. Yet as the story continues to develop, which is superb, they begin to bend, and toward one another. I absolutely loved the dialog, it was great! You know those people who can come back with one liners, on a dime, well these two can do it faster than you can say "lickety-split." The quick dialog was great.
This book kept me up way past midnight reading, and while that was me. I have to say that this book would be a perfect Beach read. Grab a copy and head to your favorite beach spot and settle in for a great read. Highly recommended!!!!
