This book should find its way on to your summer reading list!
If you're looking to kick off your summer reading list, I have the perfect book for you. I Found You by LIsa Jewell has everything you want in a smart, savvy, summer page-turner.
The set up of the story is the kind of thing that grabs you by the collar and compels you to start reading:
Single mom Alice Lake looks out her window one day to find a man sitting on the beach just beyond her front door. She approaches the man to find out if he needs help, and soon discovers the man has no recollection of who he is or how he got there. Despite everything inside her that is screaming to the contrary, Alice invites the man into her house.
Miles away, in a suburb of London, newlywed Lily Monrose's is thrown into a fit of worry when her husband doesn't come home after work one night. She finds herself stranded in a new country in which she knows no one. She calls the police and things get stranger by the minute...
The police tell her her husband, the man she met and married, has never existed.
Then the story rewinds twenty-three years into the past. There, we meet Kirsty and Gray, who are on vacation with their parents, just as they have always done. Everything is as it always was until a strange young man starts paying a little too much attention to Kirsty. Something about him rubs Gray the wrong way.
The way the author weaves these three stories together will leave you unable to stop turning the pages. This novel is thrilling, intense, and it will keep you guessing. This is summer reading at its very best. One warning, however: Don't start reading this the night before you have a big presentation at work. Otherwise, you're going to need a major jolt of caffeine because I guarantee you won't have had much sleep. You will, however, have spent the night immersed in one of the best books I've read in a long time.
If I Found You isn't already on your summer reading list, it needs to be. You'll thank me later.
