I’ve always loved Lisa Jewell’s books (my all-time-favourite is The Truth About Melody Browne), with this book she is on cracking form!! I was planning to save this for my holiday but just couldn’t wait — and I’m so glad I didn’t
I Found You weaves the tale of then and now, with Alice who is running away from unsuitable men, Gray and Kirsty who are on a family holiday, the abandoned Lily and the amnesiac Frank.
The threads come together to weave a dark and intricate tale, which draws you in and turns the book into a CPID (Can’t.Put.It.Down). A truly darker book than I was expecting, this will cause several sharp intakes of breath and even moved me to tears.
Highly recommended – you could read this in one sitting if you were lucky enough to be left in peace!

About this book
‘How long have you been sitting out here?’
‘I got here yesterday.’
‘Where did you come from?’
‘I have no idea.’
East Yorkshire: Single mum Alice Lake finds a man on the beach outside her house. He has no name, no jacket, no idea what he is doing there. Against her better judgement she invites him in to her home.
Surrey: Twenty-one-year-old Lily Monrose has only been married for three weeks. When her new husband fails to come home from work one night she is left stranded in a new country where she knows no one. Then the police tell her that her husband never existed.
Two women, twenty years of secrets and a man who can’t remember lie at the heart of Lisa Jewell’s brilliant new novel.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via THE Book Club #TBConFB, in exchange for a fair and honest review. I Found You is published by Cornerstone, an imprint of Penguin Random House, on 14th July and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.
