I Found You – Lisa Jewell

“I Found You is a 5 star book full of believable characters, a gripping storyline and lots of dark secrets.  I couldn’t put this down.”

A young bride, a lonely single mother, and an amnesiac man of dubious origin lie at the heart of New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell’s next suspenseful drama that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty and Paula Hawkins.

In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.

Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, twenty-one-year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.

Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just that he’s playing the role of protective older brother.

Two decades of secrets, a missing husband, and a man with no memory are at the heart of this brilliant new novel, filled with the “beautiful writing, believable characters, pacey narrative, and dark secrets” (London Daily Mail) that make Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

My Review:  I love Lisa Jewell!  Reading books written by Lisa is always a pleasure.  I find all of her books so easy to read, instantly gripping and throughly engrossing.  Personally I know when I pick up anything written by this author, I’m in for a treat!

Full of fascinating and believable characters, a clever and twisty plotline I Found You is another 5 star from me.  I literally couldn’t put this book down.

The wonderful Alice was a breath of fresh air, “Frank” had me guessing and doubting myself throughout and the back story of Gray and Kirsty had my heart pounding with a side order of dread and foreboding.

If you like your stories with intriguing plot lines, mysteries, secrets, thrills and great characters then read one this next.
