Excerpt from I Found You

 

Be sure to check out my deals for Goodreads Mystery & Thriller week!

Campnanowrimo is done, and I finished the first draft of the third book in my new cozy mystery series, and am on to my next project!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am currently reading Lisa Jewell’s I Found You. It is a complex weaving of three different storylines related to a man who shows up on the beach with retrograde amnesia. Unlike The Girl from the Sea and several other popular tales, he hasn’t washed in from the sea, but he does get soaked in the rain. Since this man has amnesia, the reader is left wondering what role he plays in the two other storylines. Who is he and what has he been up to? I Found You has a number of interesting characters; I don’t know if any of them feature in Lisa Jewell’s other books; they have very complex backstories that leave me wanting to know more.

“Where did you come from?”

He turns and looks at her. His eyes are wide and fearful. “I have no idea.”

Lisa Jewell, I Found You

In a windswept British seaside town, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on the 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, 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.

Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. Their annual trip to the quaint seaside town is passing by uneventfully, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just that he’s playing the role of protective older brother.
