Overall: 4/5

The very wealthy and very sheltered Preston Meadows lives his life protected from even the hint of harm. His world is safe and secure until someone kidnaps his sister, Katie. Against his parents’ wishes, Preston sets out on his own to find her. Preston works hard to blend in with the “regular” people roaming the streets of Dallas – but the real world is zany, insane, full of danger and ruthless criminals. Preston soon begins to learn more about himself and finds he has a knack for foiling certain crimes. In his adventures, during his search for his sister, he makes friends with some of the strangest people he could ever imagine. Along the way, Preston falls in love, comes face-to-face with a self-described Drug Lord, and discovers a side of himself he never knew existed, especially after the Drug Lord kidnaps his girlfriend.

 My Review:

When Preston Meadows’ sister Katie is kidnapped by a drug lord, Delgado, Preston leaves the comfort of his lavish lifestyle and heads to the streets in search for her.
Finding Katie is a story about a young man who has had a privileged life thanks to his wealthy parents and who acts selflessly to bring his kidnapped sister home. He must adapt to new surroundings, living as a common citizen in order to prevent drawing attention to himself. Along the way, Preston finds himself, the man he can be, accepting it with open arms and leaves his old self behind.
The character development was wonderful as I truly admire the person Preston becomes throughout Finding Katie; he is caring of others, selfless, and courageous. Another element that I personally enjoyed was Preston’s journey to finding his sister Katie. He made new friends and enemies along the way, and John J. Smith sprinkled in a little dab of romance in the mix.

I was definitely looking forward to read Finding Katie since I have previously read Delayed Flight by the same author, and once again I was not disappointed! John J. Smith is a wonderful author who incorporates a great balance of humor and romance into each of his novels.
I recommend Finding Katie to anyone who has read Delayed Flight, this is definitely another piece by John J. Smith you won’t want to miss!
An Enjoyable Read, Well Written
