A--Library Journal 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. Two decades of secrets, a missing husband, and a man with no memory are at the heart of this brilliant new novel, filled with the "beautiful writing, believable characters, pacey narrative, and dark secrets ("Daily Mail, London) that make Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.

Great story. Interesting, highly believable characters and unpredictable plotline, though the plot leaned toward depressing at times (which is why I gave 4 not 5 stars). I will be checking out more by this author.

I got this book from the Book Bingo at our library and was really hoping to have found a good gem. This book is just ok. It was very predictable to me and even with the parts that were not, I found that they were written very simplistically. Very simply written.

A lot of twists and turns in this story - some predictable and some not.
Reminded me of Flowers in the Attic. As a thriller, this was very good

I really enjoyed I Found You. The use of flashbacks was effective and kept me guessing as to the identify of "who dunnit." Very fast-paced with some great characterisation.

A British mystery surrounding a very tragic event and how that event ripples in time and the people it affects. A good read, a bit creepy, and very sad.

Edge of your seat psychological thriller.

Alice Lake is unconventional, rescuing an amnesiac man her children name Frank creates conflicting emotions.

As Frank begins to recover bits of his past in Ridinghouse Bay, a newlywed recent immigrant, Lily Monrose, is worried when her husband Carl fails to return from his job in London. The more Lily delves into Carl's life the more questions she has.

The novel switches between three main individuals and the years 2015 and 1993.

The story wraps up all the various characters and plots leaving the reader feeling at peace after a very intense 352 pages.

I enjoyed this much more than Girl On The Train. British terminology is used but is easily identifiable at to it's North American name.

A fast paced and suspenseful read with enigmatic characters and intermingling storylines – a favorite by this author!

Three independent storylines - interesting in their own right- merge together in a satisfying if not a bit predicatable ending. A solid read and my favourite so far by Lisa Jewell.

4.5 stars. I couldn't stop reading this ultra-atmospheric, twisty, un-putdownable thriller of a book. I was hooked from the very first page and it never let up. I loved the character-driven plot and the way that the story was told using three different threads that eventually converged. Sooo good!

A great summer read. The author takes us through two story lines that eventually meet to solve a mystery that spans over two decades.
