About the book:
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?

My thoughts:

This is a slow romance with little pockets full of action, a little mystery and a bad guy that fools you into thinking he just might be the good guy. (Or at least he starts to fool Kendall until things start to fall apart.) Griffin is our new Christian being forced to accept what he doesn't want to accept and as a Christian he is struggling with accepting that God has forgiven us and that it's time he forgives himself.

I really liked the strength of Kendall's faith. Her prayers are rich and show a depth that only a strong, faithful Christian will have. She is obviously NOT a "baby" Christian. I loved how in moments of need she stopped and turned to her God to support her and encourage her. This part of the book is beautifully written and designed to teach without preaching and ideal for drawing someone who is questioning who God is to believers.

If you would like a book that isn't 'deep' or perhaps need a gift for someone pick up this book. It's ideal for a rainy afternoon or even a day at the beach.
You can purchase it on Amazon as a paperback for $11.91 or for your Kindle for $8.39.
