There You'll Find Me By Jenny B. Jones


Synopsis by Booksneeze.com
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?

My Comment:-
For the moment there I thought this would be just another Young Adult book with the usual Boy-Meets-Girl theme. However, I was dead wrong about it. As the saying goes, "do not judge a book by its cover" and may I expand it to " by it synopsis too".
The author, Jenny B Jones, did not only injected romance in the story but also loaded it with pain, humour and faith in God's will.
It was fun to read how the two of them, Beckett and Finley, met. Amazing to see how their path kept crossing. At first Finley wanted to avoid Beckett due to his Playboy reputation but slowly she discovered that what is reported is not what she sees.
I love Cathleen Sweeney. She is an old woman dying from cancer. She is full of bitterness and her past does not help with that. Nevertheless, she was assigned to Finley as a School Project. Their relationship begins and it gradually helps Finley with her grief.
Overall, this has been a good read. I love the author writing style and I hope to read more of her books.

Waking Hours by Lis Wiehl with Pete Nelson


Synopsis from Booksneeze.com


Welcome to East Salem: A deceptively sleepy town where ancient supernatural forces are being awakened.
A high-school girl is found murdered in a park in Westchester County, New York. The shocking manner of her death confounds the town and intrigues forensic psychiatrist Dani Harris, who is determined to unravel the mystery. All the suspects are teenagers who were at a party with the girl—yet no one remembers what happened. Could one of them be a vicious killer? Or is something more sinister afoot—something tied to an ancient evil?
But it's not just Dani’s waking hours that challenge her. Each night, her eyes open at 2:13 due to troubling dreams—dreams filled with blood, water, and destruction. Is it a clue—or a sign?
Across town, former NFL linebacker Tommy Gunderson finds his security system has been breached by an elderly woman who attacks him with preternatural strength. Before he can process the attack, someone close to him is implicated in the high-school girl's murder. He agrees to help—and finds himself working with Dani, the only girl who could resist his charms when they were in high school.
It will take astute analysis and forensic skills to solve the crime. But Dani and Tommy suspect there's more to the mystery than murder, more to their growing friendship than chance . . . and more to the evil they're facing than a mere human killer.

My Comments : 
This is Book 1 of The East Salem Trilogy, highly recommended to me by a friend who had read this author's work before. 
I was hooked from page one. Love the plot. It's cleverly woven to keep the readers asking "What's next?". It's not only a suspense and thriller type of book but the hint of romance in it makes the book more attractive; at least it was for me. Some may not like it.
Love the way the author throw in some unexpected twist in it.
Another good thing about this book is that it's clean. No four letters words like some others nor violent sex scene. Just a hint of blossoming romance.
The downside of this book that at certain place, I find it a tad long winded. Maybe more editing needed?
Overall, this has been an enjoyable book and I look forward to the next two books. Hope they will be available soon.
