Item description for If Only You Knew: A Novel by Mags Storey...
Overview Perhaps I should have read something into the fact that when I first laid eyes on Sam some girl was yelling at him, and when I first met Kevin he nearly killed me. Jo's summer is off to a good start when she meets Kevin, an amazingly attractive guy, and Sam, her soon- to-be best friend, on the same day. Now all she needs is a summer job, college or career plans, life goals . . . She'd also like to know why no one talks about Nate's horrible accident. Last summer, she saw someone hit Nate with a sports car outside a church and leave him to die. If she hadn't called 911, he might have done just that. Soon after she and Sam look into the incident, a couple of creepy guys start stalking her and someone threatens her life. In the midst of this craziness, Jo finds herself turning to an intriguing group of friends who believe in the God she thinks has forgotten her. With the help of her friends and a renewed trust in God, Jo tries to unravel the mystery and piece together her life.
Publishers Description A summer to live for... or a summer to die for?
Jo's summer vacation is off to a good start when she meets Kevin, an amazingly attractive guy, and Sam, her soon-to-be best friend, on the same day. Now she only needs a job, future plans, and a few goals for her life. No big deal, right?
As if that's not enough, Jo would also like to know why no one talks about the horrible accident she witnessed last summer. But as much as she wants to know the truth, someone else wants to keep it a secret. Can she handle creepy stalkers, death threats, and her crazy love-life without losing control?
For Jo, unraveling the mystery and piecing her life together will mean discovering if God really listens--and if he cares enough to answer.

Reviews - What do customers think about If Only You Knew: A Novel?
Entertaining Read Aug 9, 2009
As a woman who came to faith late in life, I found I understood the characters and their struggles with Christianity in the novel If Only You Knew. I could relate to Jo's desire to be understood, believed and loved. With honesty and vulnerability, each multi-dimensional character relates to the stuff of life - sharing conflicting emotions, confusion, and pain.
I picked up If Only You Knew expecting a "light" read. But Storey delivered an entertaining novel full of vibrant life lessons and depth. Storey's characters are believably drawn and her writing is refreshing. A great mix of suspense, romance and humour. This novel is unpreditable, with twists that had me guessing until the end.
If Only You Knew is for young women who struggle with faith issues. However, that said, I myself, a 40-something mother of two, loved it! I plan to share it with my daughter and her girlfriends.
