On the Loose {Jenny B Jones}

I'm continuing my way through this "older" series to lead up to some newer books that have been published.

On the Loose by Jenny B Jones
Life is looking up for Katie. After being placed in a new home, she’s finally adjusting to her foster family. But tragedy shakes her fragile world as a tornado rips through town and her foster mother is diagnosed with cancer.

My Thoughts:
This book opened with a tornado ripping through town. Seeing how Katie and her new family interacted with each other through the storm really showed how comfortable Katie has gotten with her new life in In Between.

This book had its share of tragedy from the tornado to Millie being diagnosed with cancer. But the real story here was watching Katie learn to trust God completely. Through each trial and with every event in Katie's life, we see her question if she can really trust God the way everyone around her seems to trust him. She sees the examples of her foster parents and her friends, and she wonders if she can have that same level of trust.

It is at the end that Katie finally realizes that God is there for her, no matter what. He's there in the good and he's there in the bad. I had a smile on my face as Katie finally released herself to this truth.

And then another obstacle lands right in front of her. I can't wait to get into the third book of this series to see how Katie deals with life that includes her mother again.

Four-time Carol Award winner Jenny B. Jones writes contemporary romance with wit, sass, and Southern charm. Since writing for both women and teens leaves her with very little free time, she believes in spending her spare hours in meaningful, intellectual pursuits, such as watching E!, going to the movies and inhaling large buckets of popcorn, and writing her name in the dust on her furniture.
