There You’ll Find Me

there+you%27ll+find+me

So There You’ll Find Me has finally released! This book, a Romantic Times Top Pick, is one I will never, EVER forget. I only wrote it and rewrote it 100 times. But I think we finally got it right.
Finley, the star of the story, was first introduced in Save the Date. Now she has her own story. Because girl’s got issues. Lots of them.

Thank God for NetGalley and Thomas Nelson’s reviewer program called BookSneeze because on opening day we already had reviews. And they weren’t all from folks with my last name.

I’ll be chatting about the book this Thursday night (9 pm cst) with author Nicole O’Dell on Teen Talk Radio. You should join us!

Want a free copy?
If you have a book club who needs a set, KidsBuzz is giving just that away. You can also win a copy over at Free Book Friday Teens HERE.

And if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, jump on that. I’ll be sending that out soon, filling you in on the version of There You’ll Find Me that I cut two weeks before the book was due. For example, Beckett, the romantic interest, wasn’t originally an actor. He was a poor Irish guy, working to help his mom keep a roof over his family’s head. Wasn’t that so noble?
Yeah. But boring.

But all along, Finley always had the question, the heart cry of, “God, where are you in this?” No matter our age, I think it’s a thought we’ve all thrown up to Heaven.

This book comes with lots of stories of its own, its pages reminding me of different parts of my year. Some good. Some I’d like to give back. For better or worse, a book is always a part of the author. Only months after turning the book in, still completely exhausted, I would relate to Finley’s loss in a way I never saw coming. I see Finley’s other challenges in the lives of some of my students, teens I pray for and keep a watchful eye on. And of course, the book is set in Ireland, a place touched by God unlike any other. A country I visited and fell in love with. And wanted to share with you.

I hope you like the final draft.

    Loved the final draft! I can’t help but keep telling you that! Thank you for writing such a fun and moving story. I hope great things for you and hope great opportunities come your way, Jenny!

    I also loved the final draft. =)

    One of the best things about reading one of your books is that it reminds me of how awesome your other books are, and makes me want to go and reread them again as soon as possible.

    OMG!!!!!! I CANT WAIT TO READ IT!!!!! I am SO entering the contest! :) And my book club will probably want it too, I’ve already told them all about you Jenny, and they loved Charmed Life series! (Some of the girls including me formed a Luke Sullivan fan club :))

    I cannot wait to read it!!!!
    I was wondering about the book contest like last week.
    I never new who the winner was. Did you already pick a winner?

  5. bookwyrm14 October 5th, 2011 5:05 pm

    Yeah actually I was wondering too…

    Thanks for the book encouragement, ladies.
    And as for the contest, that wasn’t a contest. I was looking for what we call influencers, people with blog and review outreach. Those folks have been contacted. Thanks!

    I’ve had the final draft sitting in my room for two weeks now {thank you, Amazon pre-order}, but haven’t yet gotten to reading it! I know, I know. Homework is less of a priority than reading the latest Jenny B. Jones, but I wasn’t sure my professors would appreciate quiz responses that were unrelated to their subject material. Although if they were in the right minds, they would have realized their quiz questions should’ve been about _There You’ll Find Me_ rather than narratives about mining in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and a book on critical theory.

    Congrats on your most recent release! I look forward to reading it :)

    I can’t wait to read it… I have a feeling it’ll be your best yet :)

    I did not make the connection with Finley in Save the Date and the Finley in There You’ll Find Me.I.Am.Ashamed.
    CANT W8 TO READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thought it was fantastic!!!
    And I think that they should create something that makes Beckett come to life :)

    It was a GREAT book. I gave it 5 stars, and I did notice there was not one review under 4 stars… Now that says something…

    THAT YOU’RE AN AMAZING AUTHOR!

    I can’t wait for the next one! I love all your books, so entertaining!

    I only just finished reading ‘Save The Date’ last night and I must say that it was JUST SOOO WONDERFUL. I must say that I fell head over discount heels in love with the story! I’m so excited that Finley now has her own story to tell. Needless to say I’m ready to read ‘There You’ll Find Me!’ I love your storytelling, Jenny. Keep on writing girl because YOU ROCK!!

    I loved Save the Date, and really liked how you gave Finley a story of her own. I read There You’ll Find Me and fell in love with it. I don’t know how to say this without sounding cliche or like a drama queen, but it touched me deeply and I think it was my favorite book of yours.

    You brought not only the characters to life, but also Ireland, and now it is one of my top places I want to go visit someday. Thank you so much for using the gift God gave you, Jenny! :)

    This has to be one of my favorite books EVER. I love it soooooo soooo much. Beckett was amazing. The way you write amazes me every time I read one of your books. Thank you so much for writing.
    Love- Bailey

    I want to read this book over and over and over again. You brought the characters to life, my favorite scene had to be at the grave yard at the end(ahhhhh) or dinner in the castle. LOVE IT SO MUCH.
