Lisa Jewell is a brilliant storyteller, creating suspenseful plots with complex characters and compelling stories. She keeps getting better and hits a new high with new novel, I FOUND YOU (Atria).
Present day: Alice Lake is a lonely single mother in England, who finds a man with amnesia outside her beach house. He doesn’t have any identification or idea of why he’s there. She does what one is never supposed do, invite him inside her home. In London, Ukrainian bride, twenty-one year-old, Lily Monrose’s new husband has gone missing and she’s left stranded. She turns to police for help only to learn “Carl Monrose” has never existed.
Twenty-three years earlier: Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on holiday with their parents. Their seaside vacation is uneventful until a young man shows up and proceeds to show too much attention to Kirsty. It makes Gray more uncomfortable that just being an overly protective brother.
Two decades of secrets, a young bride and a man with amnesia are at the heart of I FOUND YOU. In addition to Jewell’s lovely prose, steady pacing and interesting characters keep readers engrossed, while the tension gradually builds to a satisfying conclusion. I FOUND YOU is a beach read with a murky film over it. You can’t help but feel as if something sinister is going to happen on the next page, or perhaps, the next sentence. I’m already looking forward to Lisa Jewell’s next novel.
Lisa Jewell was born and raised in north London, where she lives with her husband and two daughters. She is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA TODAY bestselling author of twelve novels, including The House We Grew Up In and The Third Wife.
