“Jewell’s novel explores the space between going missing and being lost….how 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.” —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. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.
Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, newlywed Lily Monrose grows anxious when her husband fails to return home from work one night. Soon, she receives even worse news: according to the police, the man she married never even existed.
Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty Ross are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. The annual trip to Ridinghouse Bay is uneventful, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just because he’s a protective older brother.
Who is the man on the beach? Where is Lily’s missing husband? And what ever happened to the man who made such a lasting and disturbing impression on Gray?
“A mystery with substance” (Kirkus Reviews), I Found You is a delicious collision course of a novel, filled with the believable characters, stunning writing, and “surprising revelations all the way up to the ending” (Booklist) that make the New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

· “I’m always anxious about reading books by friends, as it is a nightmare if you don’t like them and have to find a way to evade saying so. But, I’ve never read a book by Lisa that I didn’t love. In this case, I ended up reading the whole thing in a day which is always a pleasure, and makes you feel as if you’ve had a little holiday from your own life.”- JoJo Moyes, author of ME BEFORE YOU, in US Weekly

What an absolutely fantastic read!!! Whatever book genre your in the mood for, this is the book for you! Lisa Jewell has combined mystery/suspense, women's fiction and romance together to create an epic masterpiece! If you haven't gotten a chance to read the synopsis for I Found You- go read it now!! Trust me when I say you'll be hooked from the synopsis alone, but the brilliant storyline will keep you captivated until the very last page!! As in true Lisa Jewell fashion, the layers of the plot are slowly and methodically pealed away and what is at the center completely blew me away!! I typically can figure out the mystery in a book early on, but I can honestly say I had no clue. With every twist and turn I got good and truly lost in the epic web Ms. Jewell has spun--love that!! I Found You is a 5+++++ star novel and most definitely a 2017 favorite and will be going on the top of my "must read" list!! I can't recommend this book enough- GO 1-CLICK IT NOW!! I can promise you won't regret it!!!
