Coming Attractions

Coming Attractions (#3 Katie Weldon Series) by Robin Jones Gunn

288 Pages
As graduation approaches, Katie Weldon is pretty sure she's ready for the word "engaged" to describe her relationship with Rick. But Eli seems to always be right there when she needs support. Rick is everything Katie's ever dreamed of, offering her stability and love. Eli, on the other hand, brings adventure, spontaneity, and a wild love of God.
Katie wonders if she's ready to be serious with any guy. Maybe God wants her to seriously commit to him first, whether her future is all planned out or as spontaneous as her impromptu life has been so far. On thing she knows for sure: With God alongside her, the coming attractions are bound to be a surprise.
The third book in the Katie Weldon series reunites the Christy Miller gang as Katie learns to trust God with her coming attractions.

Ramblings: The best and worst feeling in the world: When you read the last sentence of the last book in a series that you absolutely love and the two characters not supposed to be together originally are and they are setting off on a new adventure and you are just dying and praying and hoping and wishing for the author to write more books. This book? This feelings times 10!

Characters: I really don't want to give anything away for other people interested in or currently reading the Christy Miller/Katie Weldon books, so I'm not quite sure what to say. Katie is still just as amazing, but my feelings for Rick drop in this book. On the other hand, my feelings for Eli rise A LOT. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Eli!!! :) And you will all love him too.

Plot: Senior year in college is probably tough (I wouldn't know!). Katie does a fabulous job juggling her overboard life. Spontaneity is pretty huge in this book (especially the end!) and really big in Katie's life in general.  It's something I'm trying to work on, and I'm trying to let do and let God lead my through everything. These books have really opened my eyes!

Overall: *Spoiler* To: Robin Jones Gunn. Please make a new series of Katie & Eli's adventures in Africa!!!! I love your books and they are soo inspirational, thanks a bunch!

Overall Rating: 5 Stars
Cover Love: 2 Hearts
