Review: There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones

My Rating: 5 Stars
Date Read: October 2011


Date Published: October 4, 2011 by Thomas Nelson
Paperback, 320 pages
   
Summary From Goodreads:    
In a small cottage house in rural Ireland, Finley discovers she can no longer outrun the past.
When Finley travels to Ireland as a foreign exchange student, she hopes to create a new identity and get some answers from the God who took her brother away and seems to have left her high and dry.
But from the moment she boards the plane and sits by Beckett Rush, teen star of the hottest vampire flicks, nothing goes according to Finley's plan.
When she gets too close to Beckett, a classmate goes on a mission to make sure Finley packs her bags, departs Ireland-and leaves Beckett alone.
Finley feels the pressure all around. As things start to fall apart, she begins to rely on a not-so-healthy method of taking control of her life.
Finley tries to balance it all-disasters on the set of Beckett's new movie, the demands of school, and her growing romance with one actor who is not what he seems. Yet Finley is also not who she portrays to Beckett and her friends.
For the first time in her life, Finley must get honest with herself to get right with God.



My Review:
Oh. Wow. I loved This book. It had me hooked from the very first page. I kept wondering what was going to happen next,
and I was so sad when it was finished. I wasn't ready for it to end!

This book was not light and fluffy, but it wasn't depressing as heck either. It was the perfect balance of both.  It's a Christian novel, but it didn't come off as sounding too preachy and pushy. It reminded me a lot like Caleb + Kate (Another
Christian book that I loved.)


Beckett Rush was extremely funny and entertaining. I loved how he was always "forgetting" Finley's name
and instead calling her every other name that started with the letter "F". My personal favorite was Flossie. For
some reason though, when reading about Beckett, I pictured Zac Efron. :)

Finley was such a sweet main character. She has to deal with many problems in the book but they're problems
that a lot of people go through, and she comes out stronger in the end.

This book will have you laughing and crying, and then laughing again. The romance between Beckett and Finley
was so sweet to watch, especially since they were both so determined to not  to like each other, and you just know that they
are perfect together. They both had their own issues, but seemed to balance each other out perfectly.

I really really liked this book (I know, now I'm being repetitive) This is my first book written by Jenny B. Jones,
but most definitely not my last. And the cover is absolutely GORGEOUS! Okay, that was random but I had to
throw that out there.

**I received this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review**
