    2. 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 t [...]

    3. Incredibly slow moving and rife with oddball characters, I Found You explores what can happen when rash decisions are made in the name of love Lisa Jewell s strength definitely lies in her ability to deliver character driven novels This story, along with the few others of hers I ve read, rely heavily on the development of her characters and in turn, as a reader, my enjoyment hinges almost solely on whether I connect with them and find their actions believable in some capacity I have to admit the [...]

    7. I Found You is my first book by Lisa Jewell and she is now on my radar and I will be looking at of her books to read I Found You is an intriguing, clever and interesting mystery with secrets, lies and plenty of suspense that starts off a little slow and on the lighter side and then turns darker as we learn about the intriguing and likeable characters and their stories It is well paced and well written with two stories told in the present day and are interwoven with a third story from the past [...]

    8. A mystery of twenty years Three lives that will become entwined, two in a horrible way, one may be the start of a new beginning Some very fine writing here Can one recognize the face of Evil This outstanding and suspenseful novel uses some amazing sleights of hand to keep the reader totally engrossed A few graphic scenes, none too gory, but it is the descriptions, the atmosphere Jewell creates that gave me the shivers The kind where you find yourself holding your breath, butterflies in my stomac [...]

    16. 3.75 starsI m a bit conflicted on how to rate this book I enjoyed reading it, no problems there, it s just that I had to suspend belief in how the whole story came together in order to enjoy ite my quandary What I liked Alice, one of the main female characters She is flawed and has made a lot of poor choices in her life but she is also strong and made sure she landed on her feet The best part about her She curses a lot It amazes me how many authors omit this simple character trait when it is som [...]

    17. I waited a long time to write the review on I Found You because I was pretty conflicted about how I should rate it On one hand, I could not put it down, and the book had a lot of twist and turns that I did not see coming the big one I did figure out but not for a while on the other hand, the female protagonist drove me a little nutty and was fairly unlikable, and several characters did things that no person I know would do In the end, the fact that I could not put it down and there were some goo [...]

    18. I often find that with mystery novels I need to have a really strong plot, and either great writing or great characters If it lacks 2 of these things then I probably won t enjoy it With Lisa Jewell s latest though my first foray into the author s works she handles all three adequately, making for a gripping story that had me turning pages Most of the fun of this story came from me knowing basically nothing about it before starting It was sent to me by the publisher unsolicited and of course all [...]

    23. This book has been heating up my newsfeed lately and I liked the idea that this was being toted as adark beach read Let s face it psychological suspense thriller are the blockbuster words of any publishing company these days It certainly was a book that kept me turning the pages, but I was moving faster than the plot Readers are presented with three storylines that I just knew would eventually merge onto one another First of all, we have single mom of three, Alice, who finds a man on her local b [...]
