Description

In a windswept British seaside town, single mum Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the beach outside her house. He has no name and no idea how he got there. Against her better judgment, she invites him inside.

Meanwhile, in a suburb of London, 21-year-old Lily Monrose has been married for only three weeks. When her husband fails to come home from work one night, she is left alone in a place where she knows no one and with the police telling her that her husband never existed.

In this suspenseful drama, both women must sort through the secrets surrounding men neither of them knows if they can trust.

Very intriguing story!

I'm a big fan of Lisa Jewell and her style of in-depth character development and rich background stories, so I knew I would enjoy this book before starting. I Found You is an addicting story that includes all the elements of a great suspense novel. I particularly enjoyed the fast-paced chapters told from different points of view. I loved when they started to blend into each other to answer questions and fill holes that each of the characters had originally started on their own. I wasn't shocked by any of the 'plot twists', as I was more concerned with finding out HOW they happened and WHY. This wasn't a book about twists; it was about unfolding a story that happened 20 years ago, bit by bit. If you're into that kind of book, then I definitely recommend. As always, loved the narration by Helen Duff. Her voice is very warm and enthusiastic. The different accents always throw me off but she does them well!

An easy listen

An easy listen to pass the time while working on a project. The story line had me guessing for a bit but I figured it out and enjoyed the ending.

Excellent and entertaining book

This was a well narrated and enjoyable story. Moved well back and forth in time and created interest in the characters and the story line. Overall, a definite recommendation.

Poor production quality

I found the poor production quality distracting. The narrator’s recording was tinny and was often poorly spliced mid sentence with updates/corrections in the recording with a recording of a different sound quality.

Really enjoyed this story!

I believe this is my first Lisa Jewell novel I have read. I really liked this book and see I already have another one of her books in my library. Think that will be my next read.

Helen Duff did a really good job of narrating. She brought the characters to life and gave them dimension that would would not have been there had I read it myself!

I was so eager to see how this story ended that I finished this book quite quickly. The characters were really great and I quickly was attached to their stories which made the book hard to put down! Worth a credit in my opinion.

breathtaking

The story was amazing. I loved the way it was written. I was up late many nights falling into this world that was created, not wanting to leave. It was gripping and kept me on my toes. love, love, love!

Characters, good and bad, are well portrayed

For some reason, I think this started out slowly, but I can't remember why. I was so taken by this book that I listened to it and backed up the parts that were delivered to me as I slept. I do not enjoy telling plots or in any way destroying your pleasure. Just listen and expect it to gather you up at about the 3rd chapter. You won't be able to stop listening.

I have a new favorite author!

This is the second book I have listened to by Lisa Jewell, and they have both been excellent! Great stories, great narration, not slow at any point. I get distracted easily and will stop listening to a book if it starts to drag. Ms. Jewell has kept me thoroughly entertained. I'm about to spend yet another credit on my new favorite author!

Loved It! Pleasant surprise...

Just started reading Lisa Jewell & she has a 'cozy' way of writing. Immediately, I feel easily drawn into the setting, the dialogue and the circumstances. Very engaging without high drama or unbelievable circumstances/story lines. Lisa Jewell slips me into her world, without losing my interest, and regardless of the rabbit hole she's taking me down this time, I'm a willing participant!!

Story was good but..

The story line was good but the narration needed a lot of help, there was many many times in the book where it sounds like a recording over the original. It wasn’t spliced together well at all. It was sometimes distracting. The story line was good though and kept me guessing who the man on the beach was.

Great psychological suspense

Any additional comments?

Dark and moody, this is a great psychological-suspense mystery with a lot of substance. The writing is excellent, the pacing is great, and the characters are very well developed and believable.

1. In a British seaside town, a bewildered man sits on the beach in the pouring rain with no recollection of who he is or how he got there.

2. In a London suburb, a 21-year-old woman from the Ukraine is thrown into a panic when her husband never returns home from work and police inform his passport is fake and he never existed.

3. The third mystery takes place 20 years earlier, in 1993, when a family's annual beach vacation to spirals into a terrifying nightmare.

Another great book by Lisa Jewell!

Really loved the book— I knocked a star because Helen Duff’s narration was off for this book— there are quite a few places where you can hear that she has had to redo audio and it’s really disconnected from the rest of the audio. Sounds quite “tinny”. As someone who has edited audiobooks, it really jumped out at me and I actually stopped listening after only 30 mins or so... put it aside for a week and then tried again. I’m so glad I did. The story is really good— I loved the twists and not knowing who Frank really was until almost the end. I like how Lisa tied up all the loose ends, as well. I hate being left hanging.
As others have noted, Helen’s voices for the men seem better than for the women, especially Jasmine and Lily— their voices were quite irritating.
Great suspense, good narration. Recommend.

Better than her other works

I much prefer this title compared to other works by Jewell. I listened to this book virtually non stop. If you like mysteries like Gone Girl or Girl on The Train, you’ll likely like this book. Well paced, interesting characters.
