Publisher's Description

The only thing scarier than living on the edge is stepping off it.

Maggie Montgomery lives a life of adventure. Her job as a cinematographer takes her from one exotic locale to the next. When Maggie’s not working, she loves to rappel off cliffs or go skydiving. Nothing frightens her.

Nothing, that is, except Ivy, Texas, where a family emergency pulls her back home to a town full of bad memories, painful secrets, and people Maggie left far behind . . . for a reason.

Forced to stay longer than she intended, Maggie finds her family a complete mess, including the niece her sister has abandoned. Ten-year-old Riley is struggling in school and out of control at home. The only person who can really handle the pint-sized troublemaker is Conner, the local vet and Ivy’s most eligible bachelor. But Conner and Maggie keep butting heads--he’s suspicious of her and, well, she doesn’t rely on anyone but herself.

As Maggie humorously fumbles her way from one mishap to another, she realizes she’s going to need to ask for help from the one person who scares her the most.

To save one little girl--and herself--can Maggie let go of her fears and just trust God?

According to its front cover, Just Between You and Me by Jenny B. Jones is “a novel of losing fear and finding God,” and a good theme passage for it would be Isaiah 43. Maggie Montgomery is a driven young woman who has it made in TV-land, but her stormy past is suddenly dredged up by a phone call from her estranged father. He asks her to return to her childhood home to help him care for her niece, Riley, because Maggie’s drug-addicted sister Allison has abandoned the ten-year-old girl. Maggie returns home and is confronted by Connor Blake, a handsome veterinarian who challenges her to face her past and her fears.

The author has mastered the portrayal of partial-application of faith to life. The plot continuously takes unexpected twists and turns, keeping the reader’s attention effortlessly. It is not a typical Christian romance; it is primarily a story of growth and healing. The relationships between the characters are realistic and intense, and they draw in the reader. The entire book is an unforgettable experience.

Maggie Montgomery has been running from her past for years and making a successful living in the world of television, but failing in the world of love. Out of the blue comes a phone call from the father who, she is convinced, has never loved her. He begs her to help him care for young Riley. Maggie agrees and finds herself on the road to healing for Riley, for her father, and for herself.

Maggie is wild, headstrong, and fearful. She is the personification of many “strong women” of today who overcame (or, rather, shoved down) bad childhood experiences and became financially successful. She has the partial-application faith that so many of us have, and she deals with her problems the same way that many of us would. The other characters are also unique, intense, and very realistic. Their relationships with each other and with Maggie are believable, and it is easy to empathize with them.

Overall, I was very impressed with the book. Its depth and accuracy were pleasantly surprising, and its characters were relatable and loveable. It is an excellent novel, especially for female readers. – Becky Blomenberg, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Oh, Jenny, first off, you've got so much talent in what you do! *Sigh* Seriously.

    I remember the first time I picked up a novel by this author. Everyone was mentioning how funny it was so I was thinking it'd be a chick-lit type of story.

    Boy, oh boy was I wrong.

    And even now, three books later I can truly say that Jenny's talent doesn't fail to amaze me. Once again.

    There's no doubt about it, this book is funny or more like hilarious! But Jenny also knows how to involve (in one work) very profound lessons, relatable characters, an admirable style of writing and overall a very-well thought conception behind the story.

    The romance in this is the white-hot kind that will have readers fanning themselves if they read in the middle of the night. The hero Connor is a tall, tender-hearted, funny guy who almost never loses his cool. Maggie has the heart of lioness (she's a very lovely character) and I have no doubt that you'll enjoy witnessing the depth of her beauty unravel in the story as she learns to step out in faith.

    What an adventure! What a writer!

    I was left wanting nothing more and nothing less. And even now I am recalling passages in the story I'd like to re-read.

    I highly recommend her!

    Jeeny B. Jones is an awesome writer! She has the ability to write a book that the reader feels like they are a part of. I felt like I could relate to everyone of the characters and I felt like I was right there beside them going through things just as they were.

    This book deal with lots of issues that sometimes we as Christians tend to take a backseat approach to. That is not what God wants us to do and this book shows how one woman was able to deal with her life issues and became closer to God.

    Awsome book!

    I think I found a new favorite author! This book is quite funny with subtle wit and really deals with the issues that we all have with fear in one way or another. The author keeps the book very interesting and I looked forward to my time when I got to sit down and read it! Not every book is like that, by the way, so the author did a great job. You'll enjoy it!

    The cover of Just Between You and Me notes that it is "A novel of losing fear and finding God." That statement tidily sums up the main premise of the story, which teaches readers important lessons about life and faith, while maintaining a refreshing since of realism and humor. I generally gravitate to the historical Christian fiction genre because I often find modern fiction unrelatable and at times too heavy on sarcasm and too light on inspiration. Although Just Between You and Me contains sarcastic banter between the characters, I found it enjoyable and engaging. I immediately connected with the main character Maggie. Since the story is written in first person, I found it easy to understand Maggie's fears, struggles, and personality quirks.

    Siri Mitchell's The Cubicle Next Door is responsible for drawing me into modern Christian fiction, and Jenny B. Jones' novels Just Between You and Me and Save the Date have just earned spots right next door in my book collection. Just Between You and Me is a novel that I highly recommend to fellow readers, and I am adding Jenny B. Jones to my favorite author list right now...

    I really enjoyed this novel as it was not too heavy of a read but was still able to hold my interest. The tense in which it was written took some time to adjust to, however, it was a satisfying read.
