There You'll Find Me by Jenny B. Jones
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? ~GoodReads~~~
Rain's ReviewsI was waiting to read this book for over a year. I got kind of stuck in a I'll buy this one next cycle and never really got out of it until I went on a major Library book haul. And omageeze I am astounded at how spectacular this book was.
I expected it to be a Romance with some traveling and her finding her happiness in her famous boyfriend that she finally started dating after an entire book of fighting with this guy.
BUT, it was positively 100% better. I probably would have realized that if I had done my usual research and realized that the author was a Christian Fiction author. I was so happy with this book. The writing style was phenomenal. The story line was edge-of-your-seat fantastic. The characters were all a joy (well you know, they were constructed well), Only one or two of the characters seemed under developed in their roles but it was easily over looked.
Finley has gone through the past few years in devastation and personal failure. She has everything riding on her audition and she thinks that God has stopped caring about her. She is lost and hurt and angry and completely losing control of everything in her life. She tries to do everything she can to fix it and she honestly thinks she is doing the right thing. I connected with her so well and could really put myself in her shoes. I have never personally gone through every single thing she has but I still felt a connection.
Beckett Rush is misunderstood. Plain and simple. Everyone thinks he is someone he isn't and even Finley is surprised by who he is after she thinks she has it all figured out. I am not going to say to much about him but he was a joy to read and though romance was definitely not the sole purpose of this book it still had some great elements.
Finley's host family in Ireland is funny, loving, and fun and I absolutely fell in love with them all.
Finley meets some challenging people and they all get under her skin in different way's but she treats each situation exactly how she knows is best I am proud of how she did it.
This book made me want to read every single book Jenny B. Jones has written and makes me want to visit Ireland tomorrow. I am definitely going to buy this to put on my permanent shelf and I hope you enjoy it as much as me.
