There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones

_225_350_Book.505.cover (1) Grief brought Finley to Ireland. LOVE WILL LEAD HER HOME.

Finley Sinclair is not your typical eighteen-year-old. She’s witty, tough, and driven. With an upcoming interview at the Manhattan music conservatory, Finley needs to compose her audition piece. But her creativity disappeared with the death of her older brother, Will.

She decides to study abroad in Ireland so she can follow Will’s travel journal. It’s the place he felt closest to God, and she’s hopeful being there will help her make peace over losing him. So she agrees to an exchange program and boards the plane.

Beckett Rush, teen heartthrob and Hollywood bad boy, is flying to Ireland to finish filming his latest vampire movie. On the flight, he meets Finley. She’s the one girl who seems immune to his charm. Undeterred, Beckett convinces her to be his assistant in exchange for his help as a tour guide.

Once in Ireland, Finley starts to break down. The loss of her brother and the pressure of school, her audition, and whatever it is that is happening between her and Beckett, leads her to a new and dangerous vice. When is God going to show up for her in this emerald paradise?

Then she experiences something that radically changes her perspective on life. Could it be God convincing her that everything she’s been looking for has been with her all along?

2bf851c88da0d0bbe155d110.L._V192670573_SL290_ Jenny B. Jones writes Christian Fiction with equal parts wit, sass, and untamed hilarity. When she’s not writing, she’s living it up as a high school teacher in Arkansas. Since she has very little free time, she believes in spending her spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuit such as watching E!, going to the movies and inhaling large buckets of popcorn, and writing her name in the dust on her furniture.

Ashley’s Two Cents . . . I LOVE Jenny B. Jones. She is one of my favorite authors, and I have her full collection of books. I recommend any of them.

This particular story was a little different from any other teen book she’s ever written. I found it deeper  – and it had such a great underlying story – about her brother dying and her wanting to find peace in it. . Oh – it also connected a little bit with Save the Date (Finley is Alex’s little sister, and of course, if you read Save the Date, you know that Will was killed in that book).

Jenny makes the characters come to life in all her stories. I really love this one! Finley, Beckett and the rest of the characters were real, and the story was even more real. She has such a great way of bringing a story to life, and I hope someday that I can learn to be even half of what she is as an author.

If she keeps writing books like this one and the ones that she’s written in the past, I will keep buying her books!
