I Found You by Lisa Jewel is a 2017 Atria Books publication Tantalizing Compelling and very suspensefulThree seemingly unrelated people see their lives converge in the most horrific an unimaginable way Alice is a harried single mom in her forties trying to keep her head on straight after committing a few horrendous parenting mistakes When she sees a man out on the cold damp windy beach she feels sorry for him and brings him an old coat to wear In the process she discovers the man has amnesia and despite the possible dangers she is determined to help him Lily has only been married a few weeks when her husband simply vanishes into thin air Being in a new country having never met her husband’s family face to face having no friends to call Lily’s search for the truth is daunting Finally able to enlist some help Lily is baffled by what she discovers about her new husband ‘I Found You’ is a tense psychological thriller very cleverly plotted beginning with a somewhat lighter tone that slowly develops into something truly dark and sinister This book played tricks with my head from the beginning and kept me guessing tense and on edge all the way to end I never knew who to trust who to believe who was in danger or what to make of the situation especially when ‘Frank’ begins to have a few memory jogs The twists are deep well timed and surprising the suspense is taut but there is an emotional element at play as well At the end of the day there is a sense of long overdue justice and I experienced palpable relief when I was finally able to exhale again Despite the darker tones and subject matter the book has a deeply satisfying uality to it which can be attributed to the characterizations and the way the author adeptly and realistically drew the book to a close Overall this is another stellar effort by Lisa Jewell who is now becoming one of my ‘go to’ authors 4 stars

“Readers of Liane Moriarty Paula Hawkins and Ruth Ware will love” Library Journal starred review “Jewell’s novel explores the space between going missing and being losthow the plots intersect and finally collide is one of the great thrills of reading Jewell’s book She ratchets up the tension masterfully and her writing is lively” The New York Times In the windswept British seaside town of Ridinghouse Bay single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on a beach outside her house He has no name no jacket and no idea how he got there Again. Lisa Jewell is a fairly new to me author; I've only read one of her other books as they are just making their way into the US publication system While I enjoyed reading The Girls in the Garden I don't think it holds a candle to how intriguing suspenseful and complex of a story I Found You is The entire plot from every angle was compelling and I could hardly put it down as I just had to find out what would happen next The plot was broken up into multiple POVs from past and present; as you come toward the end of the novel you begin discovering that some of the voices overlap and lead to various exciting twists The characterization alongside the general increase in suspense and plot uality shows the tremendous amount of growth she seemingly achieves between each book; this is one of the most important ualities I search for when adding to my must read author databaseI wasn't uite sure what to expect from this story Is it a mystery Yes Does it touch on some pretty dark topics Also Yes But does it somehow maintain a light and breezy feel amongst it's characters Yes This is where my reviewing gets tricky; I'm not entirely sure where to place this book The pacing is definitely on the slow burner side at least near the beginning; I seem to be leaning heavily toward books right now that deeply explore it's characters in lieu of heavy action moving the plot forward I found myself lost in the detailed backstories of these damaged folks; I can't think of a single voice in the book that hadn't suffered some sort of trauma leading to their being who they were in the present tense Alongside the characters my attention was completely rapt in the ever changing voices; I kept wondering which parts I had figured out correctly and which I hadn't pieced together just so Turns out I had it about 5050; I was satisfied in the sense of working out some of the pieces but delighted that the book wasn't fully predictableThe most difficult piece to categorize is this whimsical feel that the book holds; the content is very serious and there are even some scenes containing disturbing violence How did Jewell manage to keep this book from feeling so heavy and dark Is it the dry humor infused into the narrative from feisty characters like Alice and Lily Could it be the lack of action yet instead focus on character development Do British authors just naturally sound polite and well spoken ; I guess I'll never know for sure but if you are a reader who would like to branch out into something a little darker without losing a literary feel I would highly recommend picking up Lisa Jewell's I Found You I enjoyed this one so much that I feel I may have to order her next book off of Book Depository as I simply can't wait for it to make it's way over to the statesMany thanks to Lisa at Atria Books for providing my copy; it was a delight to share my honest thoughts here on the blog
