A while back I talked about a novel I was still in the process of reading, Finding Jeena by Miralee Ferrell. Today, now that the book is released, I'm giving y'all the full review. =)

Finding Jeena
by Miralee Ferrell

Jeena Gregory had it all--the job she'd always dreamed of, a new townhouse in the right part of town, a car to make people drool, the finest clothes a fashionista businesswoman could want . . . she was heading exactly where she wanted to go. Until she wasn't.

In a series of hard hits, some beyond her control and some her own doing, Jeena's life spirals out of control. Everything she had worked so hard for is in jeopardy, and everything she thought she knew she has to doubt.

Jeena isn't a character you necessarily like right away--but she's one that you know is going to grow and whose promised dynamics keep you turning those pages. She pulls emotions out of you. Frustration, frantic hopes, sorrow, and finally a joy from deep within when you get to glimpse with her the light at the end of her tunnel.

This isn't a light, easy read, but for lovers of women's fiction who value a journey from mountain to valley, this is the book for you. A story of growth, realization, and learning lessons the hard way, Finding Jeena is a deep look into the heart of one woman who knows exactly what she wants . . . until it betrays her. Miralee Ferrell delivers a beautifully written book that will invite you to gaze long into your own soul to see if there's a bit of Jeena inside you.
