Finley Sinclair is still grieving the loss of her dear friend and brother, Will, after two years and therapy. She arrives in Abbeyglen, Ireland for her last year of high school as an exchange student and a fresh start. She meets a young, handsome and enigmatic movie star, Beckett Rush, and immediately puts him in his place, which only makes him more determined to get to know the girl who dares to be real with him. Finley is also dealing with being at a new school, making friends, practicing her violin and piano for a conservatory audition in 6 months, and a secret that might be life-changing.
I’ve only read one other book by Jones, Just Between You and Me, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her writing. This Christian Romance is full of real characters and emotions and situations that draw the reader into the world of Finley and Ireland. I want to go visit Ireland after reading this book – the imagery is so beautiful. The message of hope and love in God is beautifully woven into the story as a young girl is forced to confront her control issues. As Finley searches for all of the places her brother visited while in Ireland, the author captures her journey and her heart. I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone who has ever had to deal with pain and loss and to anyone who loves an easy but inspirational read.
I received this book for free from Booksneeze.com with Thomas Nelson but was not required to write a positive review.
