Coming Attractions by Robin Jones Gunn



I thought it would be fun to read another Robin Gunn book. I loved her Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas last year so I hopped on the band wagon when I read about needing bloggers to do this tour in Robin's newsletter. I love Robin's newsletter it comes right to my e-mail box and I can stay up-to-date on her happenings. I have teenage daughters that are always looking for good books to read so that was another reason for this tour because Robin does a good job in the young adult Christian lit. field. It is clean and not all smutty. With no further ado Here's the tour.



In this third book in the Katie Weldon Series, Katie is rolling into her final semester at Rancho Corona with one major question for her boyfriend: “Are you serious?” She’s come to the conclusion that she really, truly loves Rick and it’s time for him to make a declaration about his future intentions. The biggest obstacle to such a conversation is the craziness of their schedules. Katie’s close friend, Nicole, is spending more time with Rick than Katie is, and the once mysterious Eli is now the person to whom Katie is opening her heart. What is happening to her should-be-predictable world?

Soon Katie finds she’s the one who is asking herself, “Are you serious?” Katie ponders what that means in her life-from her relationship with Rick to what she plans to do after graduation. Could it be that God is asking her the same question about her relationship with Him?



Robin Jones Gunn is the much-loved author of Peculiar Treasures, On a Whim, and the Christy Miller, Sierra Jensen, College Years, Glenbrooke, and Sisterchicks® series, with over 4 million books sold worldwide. Robin loves to travel and often speaks locally and internationally. She and her husband live near Portland, Oregon, where the view outside her window is green all year round.

My Review:

From beginning to end Coming Attractions was just that ~ it kept me coming back for more. I didn't want to put the book down to do my other chores. You learn to love each character for who they are. This book is about making choices and right ones at that. Letting the Lord have His way in all you do. Katie who has a free spirit and loves adventure learns that sometimes you can really love someone and not end up spending your life with him because God has other plans for your life. He learns that Love is mysterious and an unconditional commitment to an imperfect person. Katie is courageous and ready to survive real love, but it hurts tuning it over to God. You can't plan real love it comes on it's own schedule, it's spontaneous and organic. God may keep us in suspense as to what lies ahead in life for us but He never abandons His children completely. I know you'll hardly be able to wait and see what the next coming attraction awaits Katie as you turn the pages of this book. It is all a mystery but you won't be disappointed I'm sure of that.
