Being the apple of Hollywood’s eye is great for an action/adventure hero, but millionaire Rex Ronin knows he needs to break out of his typecast roles if he hopes to have any longevity on the silver screen. A fresh new role by a new director, filmed on the deserted Hawaiian Island of Koho’olawe, will grant Rex decades of acting opportunities and maybe even make him feel like a true hero, like his father. But a tropical storm strands him at sea, and when he makes land, Rex is saved by a woman running a wildlife preserve—on the very land Rex’s agent is turning into a mega-resort, one that will ensure Rex’s fame and fortune for the next hundred years.
Taking care of living things is what Tori Jackson does best; after all, she knows what it’s like to be broken and discarded. A car accident has scarred her, both physically and emotionally, so living among nature and protecting everything on her reserve is all that matters to her. So when a scruffy, shipwrecked vagabond shows up on her doorstep, Tori has no compunction against helping him. The only problem is that her reserve didn’t get the land renewal in time, and now her beloved property is at risk of turning into a concrete tourist destination. With no money, no power, and a coalition intending to steal the land out from underneath her, Tori needs something extraordinary to save everything she holds dear.
Rex craves fame and fortune, while Tori nurtures her flora and fauna. Was their shipwrecked encounter a disaster, or simply their destiny?

In To Catch a Star, Dorothy Callahan, breathes life into her heroine and hero while featuring societal plights. Here we see how greed and environmental responsibility guide the characters into uncharted waters. Delve into this story and enjoy! I strongly recommend any of Dorothy Callahan's book. Why? First, she's an outstanding and gifted author whose characters are strong, relatable, interesting, and intelligent. Second, Ms. Callahan participates in the Read and Rescue movement. This is a group compromised of published authors who have pledged a portion of books proceeds to animal rescues, while also highlighting the need for foster parents and forever homes for the numerous and well deserving pets waiting in shelters.
Great story. Fast read. Dorothy Callahan is a great writer.
