Review: I Found You by Lisa Jewell

I Found You by Lisa Jewell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Publishes 4/25/17

Fans of Liane Moriarty and Paula Hawkins will love this multi-POV psychological thriller set on a coastal town.  

A single mother, known for making bad decisions, takes in an amnesiac man lost on the beach. A young, new bride looks for her husband of three weeks, desperate when he doesn't come home one night. Comes to find out, he never truly existed. Flash back to 1993, two teenagers get caught up in the life of a young man who takes a shine to the innocent 15 year old girl. The shine becomes dulled with his obsession of her.

How do all of these people intertwine? Secrets buried deep within for twenty years, comes back with one fateful day that triggers a memory - causing a domino effect. Lisa Jewell is brilliant. Intertwining these characters and seamlessly bringing them together at the end. Fairly paced, she brings in each character's desperate need for love and how this desperation affects their lives and the ones around them. While some parts may not have seemed entirely plausible, it did not detract from the ominous tone.. that slowly builds to the last two parts of the book, which were the best for me. An intriguing plot, alternating POVs with occasional flashbacks and a need-to-know mystery of who this man is will keep you turning the pages.
