Review: There You'll Find Me

There You'll Find Me

There You'll Find Me
Jennie B. Jones
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Release Date: October 4, 2011

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.

This book was a nice surprise for me. I loved it. Before I read it, I thought it looked good, but I didn't think I'd enjoy it this much. 

I really liked the characters in this book. Finley was heartbroken and trying to figure out her life. The only think was that in the past, Finley was supposed to be a party girl, but I just can't see it. She's way too high strung. And I liked Beckett. There was so much to him.

I loved the setting in this book. Ireland is a close second to Top Places in the World I Want to Visit, right behind Italy. I only wish the book had a bigger focus on the setting, because it would have been beautiful. 

This book does not have much buzz behind it, but that definitely does not mean it's not as good. 

This book brought up a lot of emotions. There were times I laughed. There were also times I teared up a little. 

I really liked this book, more than I thought I would. It's one of the better books I've read in a while. I'm looking forward to more by Jenny.
