Remember I was crazy excited about this book?
I thought I was definitely going to love this book.

Turns out I was absolutely and 100% right. Well, kind of. I l don't think I imagined I was going to love it this much.
I read it four days ago and I still think about it and smile, but let's get down to business, here's the review:

Wow! This book was so much more than I was expecting. The cover makes you think it's going to be a light romance, and the synopsis doesn't really tell you how serious the subject matter is or how much truth is spoken in the words of this story.

At its core, There You'll Find Me is about healing from past wounds. Hotel heiress Finley (love her name, by the way!) goes to Ireland two years after the death of her brother hoping to escape her home and party-girl reputation. She's been through therapy,
This book was really hard for me to rate.. I did liked it a lot (I simply LOVED some of the characters in this story), and it could have been a 5 stars book, but all that talk about God and prayers was definitely not for me.

Let me get this strait, it's not that I don't believe in God (truth being told I don't know how much I do either), but I don't like reading about this subject and I had to skip entire paragraphs.

Except for this little discomfort, the book was amazing, that's why the high rati

I thought this was going to be a heart-warming story, but I wasn't crazy about it at all.

First of all, I could not stand Finley. The book description said she was "witty, tough and driven," but I thought she was snobby and bitchy. She had this "been there, done that" attitude, and she was so quick to judge people by stereotypes and label them as a certain type. She did that with Beckett. She did that with Beatrice. She did that with Taylor and the actress types. And she did that with Mrs. Sweene

Wow. Yeah. So.
How do I say this. I unladylike fell head over heels in love with this book.
You know that happy place everyone has? Well this book took me to mine in a smooth long and laughable journey.
Mrs Sweeney had me choked up, I had so much sympathy and admiration for her as a person and if her sister hadn't shown and offered her the forgiveness she seeked I would have had some serious ass kicking to do.
When she went, a piece of my heart went with her. I was so sad until I imagined her ha

Hani bazı kitaplar vardır, eline aldın mı ve daha okumaya başlamadan "İşte bu." dersin. "Beni Orada Bulacaksın" da o kitaplardan.. Nasıl anlatsam bilmiyorum ama çok hoştu, çok güzeldi. Dün gece kitabı bitirdiğim de, durup düşünmeden edemedim. Kitabın bölümlerini, en önemlisi "bir şeylere olan inancımı" tekrar gözden geçirdim. Yani bir kitap gibi değildi, okurken resmen uyarladım hayata. :)

Zaten İrlanda'ya olan müthiş bir hayranlığım var ve bu kitabı almamdaki en önemli etkenlerden biri de oydu.

When I was younger, I used to write stories about a group of friends who lived in Ireland. It was just a random country I picked out in the world atlas, and I thought I liked the sound of Ireland as a setting. Of course, I really knew nothing of the country then, and it wasn't until later on that I read and watched some stuff about Ireland on TV that I realized none of what I wrote was even the least bit realistic. But my recent trip to Europe got me to meet a YFC m

This is such a beautiful book.

I can't really find the words to describe my feelings after reading, but I can say this: There You'll Find Me is heart wrenching and emotional. It's a wonderful story about loss and love and one girl's struggle to put back the pieces of her life shattered by a tragedy.

I had to pause for a while and gather my bearings after I finished reading this. I was a bit misty eyed when I leafed through the last page.

Normally, Christian Fiction? Not my thing. And yet, THERE YOU'LL FIND ME has me feeling a bit different. A good portion of it is Finley's struggling to find her center again, her faith. I cannot say that I could connect to her while reading about her struggle but I did believe it. As an MC she's quite different. I liked that she's stand-offish and that she had a goal in mind in everything she did. I enjoyed her trying to find her place... with her family, in her academics, with the new boy she'd ...more

Wow!! The charm of Ireland, the angst of young adulthood, and the beautiful craziness of life come together to make this an engaging, moving read! Jenny B. Jones has a winning and creative writing style that somehow combines humor and sincerity in a way that keeps the pages turning and the journey going. And this is one journey that I'm so very glad I took!

There You'll Find Me features quite a cast of quirky characters, many of whom charm the reader's heart despite their unique first impressions
I loved this book. This is my favorite book now that I have read! I was really encouraged by this. If you are going through a hard time in your life, hopefully this will help you like it helped me.

When her brother Will was killed in a terrorist bombing, Finley Sinclair's carefully ordered life came undone. Consumed by grief and anger, she lashed out at those closest to her, alienating her family and becoming an infamous party girl whose tabloid-worthy exploits masked a depression that threatened to consume her. The God who once seemed as close as her beloved brother fell silent. Following a family intervention and a stint in therapy, Finley -- further guilt-ridden over what her rebellious ...more

This was my first experience with both NetGalley and Jenny B. Jones (thank you, Thomas Nelson!). I'm happy to report it was a positive one. I don't have a lot of experience reading Christian fiction, so I was a little surprised that There You'll Find Me felt very contemporary. In fact, in the early pages, I was looking for differences to set it apart from similar mainstream releases like Anna and the French Kiss. On the surface, these two titles seemed sim

I liked the overall message of the story. I think the intentions behind the story are applaudable; and are relatable to some extent: having doubts, feeling alone, lost, angry, questioning ones' faith, and so on. Also, I liked the meaning behind Finley's name, and I liked reading about her journey; YET I somehow still felt like there was something missing. The story, when it came full circle, didn't deliver the emotionally powerful punch I was craving.

I wanted to read this book so when I saw this book up on netgalley, I couldn’t deny the temptation. I requested it in a heartbeat. And I’m so glad I was approved.

I do admit that it didn’t entirely meet my expectations, needless to say it was still a good and refreshing story. I kinda like Caleb + Kate (a Christian fiction too) better but the plot of There You’ll Find Me is charming with a tinge of realism. Some may have an impression that books like these tend to be preachy, which is not. Regard
I can’t believe that I waited so long to get to this book. It absolutely blew me away.

Finley was such a real character; she grieved in more ways than one and with no one to really turn to (especially in a foreign country), she looked for her faith in the landscape of Ireland, where her murdered brother, Will, felt closest to his own faith. She struggled to understand the beauty that Will saw while he studied abroad, and my heart ached for her as she missed the importance and beauty of life in th

I’m not a big fan of contemporary fiction. I’m more of an escapist reader who prefers fantasy, paranormal romance and science fiction but my friend KM from One Page at a Time raved about this book and recommended that I read it, and since she has never given me a bad recommendation, I thought I would give it a try. I loved There You’ll Find Me so much. It made me laugh, made me cry, made me think about all the things in my own life that I try to control when I should really just let go and let G ...more

A brilliant, upbeat story about a teen's search for peace and answers after losing a close sibling, and I enjoyed it enough to name it a favorite. First YA listed among my favorite books. Finley was witty, sassy, and fun. I enjoyed her even more than the hero (which is rare), and easily related to her need for control. As Finley realized her destructive patterns, I saw parallels in my own life. Books don't usually minister to me on such a level, and it was a huge surprise, coming from a YA.

Yes,I admit I was expecting a good old contemporary romance. But it was so much more than that. I was enjoying it so much I didn't even think about the romance.

Do you remember this scene from Pride and Prejudice?

This is my third Jenny B. Jones novel and by far my favorite. She manages to take a somewhat implausible story line and create something genuine and moving. I was kind of expecting another "teen" book with some extra fluff thrown in for good measure, but this was so much more. Finley was so believable to me - somewhat prickly and sarcastic, but underneath that harboring a lot pain. Between her brother's death, battered reputation and high-pressure audition for the NY Conservatory of Music, she h ...more

When Finley Sinclair leaves home to study abroad in Ireland, her goal is to follow in her brother Will’s footsteps, using his journal as a guide. She wants to see the places Will saw, feel what he felt when he traveled through Ireland before he died. She’s hoping for closure, and an ending to the song she is composing.

But she meets Hollywood heartthrob Beckett Rush on the airplane—the last thing she needs, another guy who’s full of himself and drawn to trouble. But her lack of interest intrigues

I really liked the way this book starts, and how they first meet. I also like how not only is he famous, but she is also rich and well known, and it is hinted that she had a party girl past until her brother's death. I think that it sets this book apart from others like it. Finley is pretty awesome because she is driven, but she has her quirks and her rough past. I also love Beckett, because he isn't just a bad boy but he fits into the B and B atmosphere. I do truly like them. I also like all th ...more
I LOVED THIS BOOK and I think that Jenny B. Jones is Exceptional! This is the first book that I've read by her, but wow oh wow, it did wonders for me. I first learned of this book from Goodreads and simply put it on my wish list, not thinking too much about it, but when I received it for my birthday, I finished it within a two day span. (Probably faster if I would have read it straight through, but I knew it would be terrific so I spaced it out for as long as I could.) At first, I just thought t ...more

This is sweet. Its a great setting and Finley is pretty quirky to read. Its not a bad book to end up with. Jenny B. Jones really got the setting of the book in Ireland. The array of characters all have a voice + are written really well. The story line has some unbelievable elements to it. Some of the movie set stuff, and Beckett conveniently staying at the same hotel when all the other actors aren't is a little far fetched. However, the story flows and looking past that helps. It will definitely ...more

Grief is perhaps the most unpredictable of emotions. It changes from situation to situation, from person to person. Finley Sinclair is stuck in a deep black place following the death of her older brother Will. He was a humanitarian and CNN reporter, with a passion for building schools in Afghanistan. Islamic terrorists blew up one of his schools, taking him, a host of kids and parents along with Finley's faith and happiness from this world. She reacted by going wild, then falling into a serious ...more
