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.
Ireland. Vampire movies. Music. Hot boys. Eek! A lovely combination, right? Finley’s brother died and since then her life has been a mess. So she goes to the one place her brother loved – Ireland for answers. Then there’s Beckett, a cocky, yet charming movie star.
I would like to say that I haven’t read Save the Date, the companion novel in which Finley is in. I definitely intend to, but wasn’t aware of it until after I had finished There You’ll Find Me. You may want to consider reading it first. Just keep in mind this review includes none of the background information that may be in the first book.
I love these characters so much! Finley is complex and focused (and a bit too intense). She’s hurting and I was able to feel it from the pages. Beckett is a bit more laid back, but is a bit frustrated with his life. Finley’s host family is amazing, as well. They run a bed and breakfast that keeps them busy, but you can tell they really care about Finley.
Finley explores much of Ireland and has a bit of an investigation going on, in which she meets various people in the area. I cannot stress enough how much I want to visit Ireland, reading about the places the characters visited made me want to even more.
Warning time: While There You’ll Find Me is Christian fiction, it never comes across as preachy. There are mentions of “God” and faith, there are Bible passages quoted. I personally do not think it’s enough to scare anyone off, but it’s my “job” to mention it.
