I have not read the Christy Miller series or any other books by Robin Jones Gunn, but wow I am glad I found this book! It was amazing! I love how real Katie is and the God moments she has! Alot of the God moments she had made me think about my faith such as the hot on his heels theology and the peculiar treasures! Can't wait to finish the series and I definitely plan to read the Christy Miller series after this one!
Jane Morris5 Stars Out Of 5March 24, 2010Jane MorrisI love, love, love the Katie Weldon book series. I am currently reading the third book of this series and thoroughly enjoy it. I have read all of the Christy Miller and Sierra Jensen series that Robin Jones Gunn has written. This book is great, you will have to buy the whole series to get all the details going on with Katie. I love these books!!!
Jan5 Stars Out Of 5December 28, 2009JanNo, I'm serious about giving this book 5 stars and here's why:One word: KATIE. This series brings to life a flat charater from the Christy Miller series and transforms her into a dynamic, passionate girl that we all can relate to. Katie Weldon is deep--she has real problems, a busy life, and real questions. She's down to earth, and as her almost-boyfriend calls her, "an open book."Yet, that is one of the reason why I love this book so much! Katie isn't afraid to speak her thoughts--she's REAL. She's especially honest with Rick. I love how the two of them can argue one moment, and sincerly make up the next. Rick is also a dynamic character. Yes, he's the reformed flirt, but that's the past. Now, he's a successful buisness man and is crazy about Katie. He might take their relationship awefully slow at times, but I think that's sweet! :) He respects Katie by keeping their relationship on a friendship level. One serious topic in this book is TRUST: complete trust. Katie has a hard time trusting Rick and it allowed me to evaluate how I trust the people around me.If you were a big fan of the Christy Miller series, you will love the Katie Weldon series! In my humble opinion, they are WAY better than Christy's or Sierra's. And the book leaves you very happy! A nice, satisfying read!
Rachel Brodsky4 Stars Out Of 5April 15, 2009Rachel BrodskyI am a HUGE fan of the Christy Miller series, and I've also read the Sierra Jensen series, so I was excited when I found out that Robin Jones Gunn was starting this series. It's a great book, with a positive influence, making you question yourself as you learn from the characters. I would recommend it to other fans.
Chelsea Davis5 Stars Out Of 5March 11, 2009Chelsea DavisI have read the Christy Miller Series, the Sierra Jensen series, and now the Katie Weldon series. I am in love with the books Robin Jones Gunn creates. I feel as if I'm a close friend of all the characters. My mother laughs at me when i talk about them, because i talk as if they are my own friend. The Katie books are one of favorites, because i love peculiar treasures. Me and my friends have begun calling ourselves that and crack up whenever someone hears and looks at us like we're nuts. Thank you Robin for all the amazing encouragements through your book. Your books are a true God-thing for me. Thank you again for all you do.
