Katie Weldon catches more than just the bouquet at the wedding of her best friend, Christy Miller. She also snags a job offer that launches her into an adventure she never imagined. Katie eagerly accepts the job as resident assistant at Rancho Corona University only to find herself in a community of conflict. She thought this was where God wanted her, but how can God use her—love her—when everything is falling apart? Especially with her boyfriend, Rick. Katie turns to the women in her life for solace. In the safety of their love and encouragement she finally allows herself to spill her heart about her relationship with Rick. But even their advice can’t postpone the decision Katie must face, a decision that will define who she is and the woman she’s becoming. The first book in the Katie Weldon Series, Peculiar Treasures follows Katie as she struggles to believe that God can love her, faults and all.

    " I am REALLY excited to read this. I have been waiting for this to come out! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 2/17/2014

    " This book was pretty good I guess, but definitely more suited to the younger crowd. I'm certain I would have enjoyed it much more had I read it when I was 19. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marnie | 2/13/2014

    " I really liked this book. It turns out that back in the 80s the author wrote the Christy Miller series, & this story happens after that. After reading this book I wanted to find out what happens before so I checked out the 1st Christy Miller book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/30/2014

    " I was a big fan of the Christy Miller series and love everything Robin Jones Gunn writes. So when I heard she was writing a series about Katie I got very excited. This book did not disappoint. It was fun to read about her in a different way and hear more from her point of view. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 1/26/2014

    " i just don't connect with the writing or the characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jo | 1/24/2014

    " Written for a young adult audience but some great ideas... I loved the idea that if you want to truly know Christ stay "hot on his heels" pg. 57 "That's my theory - you stay close to Christ. Remind yourself that being one of his disciples will feel like an unscripted adventure most of the time. The journey is definitely not a one size fits all. But he has a plan. He is fulfilling his objectives in your life." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 1/21/2014

    " It was really good, I liked all the Bible verses in it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 1/19/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alana | 12/8/2013

    " I loved the verses used in here. I used to think I wouldn't like any of Robin Jones Gunn's characters except for Christy, but I learned that I could relate to Katie too. Great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebekah | 11/30/2013

    " This was funny and inspiring! Robin sure knows how to write a good book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Missy | 10/7/2013

    " This is a cute Christian based romance(ish) that is a series. Unfortunately it is a long series, and so it feels like very little happened in this first book, and I don't think I liked it enought to commit to the 8 or so books to get closure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Camille 11-12 | 10/3/2013

    " It was a really good book that I thought was good for girls to because it helps a lot.On a scale from 1-10 in would give it a 8 1/2. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kto | 9/2/2013

    " What a suprise to discover Gunn started writing again! I seriously picked this book up last week and teared up because I was so thrilled! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maura | 6/26/2013

    " This book was AMAZING!!! Thats really all i can say. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/14/2012

    " This is meant for a younger audience (translation: college age kids), but I still enjoyed it. Took me back to my college days and the "angst" of finding Mr. Right. Fortunately for me, I found him! :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lindsey | 10/2/2012

    " This book is awesome I recomend it to everyone who has read the christy miller books and the sierra jensen books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsy | 8/2/2012

    " Not too bad. I suppose, as it's in a series, she doesn't fell the need to conclude things too much. I'm not sure the characters are terribly realistic, but isn't that true of lots of christian fiction? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Noelle | 4/30/2012

    " It's easy to read through and set in California. That's about all it's got going for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keri | 4/15/2012

    " Fabulous book! I love that Robin Jones Gunn has created another series. Reading this book was like returning to old friendships. I loved hearing how previous characters were doing and it should be interesting to see her further develop the character of Katie. I can't wait to read more! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kimberly White | 12/23/2011

    " Sappy, and silly. A predictable no brainer. I would classify this as juvenile/young adult fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christena :) | 10/13/2011

    " So I didn't love this as much as the Christy or Sierra Jensen series but I still did love it!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 9/6/2011

    " A delightful series to follow. The book is certainly part of a series, because the end leaves you wondering, and you have to move on to the next book to find out. As I am reading the series, I hope the last book has a clear ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krystal | 9/13/2010

    " Confession - I started reading the Christy Miller series by Robin Jones Gunn back in Jr. High/High School and I still love them! So when I found out she had continued the series with new books about one of the characters, I had to read it, even though the target audience is really college girls! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 8/6/2010

    " It was great to read more about Katie, Christy & the gang. Not as good as the college years books but still very enjoyable. "
