“Readers of Liane Moriarty, Paula Hawkins, and Ruth Ware will love." —Library Journal (starred review)

“Jewell’s novel explores the space between going missing and being lost….how the plots intersect and finally collide is one of the great thrills of reading Jewell’s book. She ratchets up the tension masterfully, and her writing is lively.” —New York Times

In the windswept British seaside town of Ridinghouse Bay, single mom Alice Lake finds a man sitting on a 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, newlywed Lily Monrose grows anxious when her husband fails to return home from work one night. Soon, she receives even worse news: according to the police, the man she married never even existed.

Twenty-three years earlier, Gray and Kirsty Ross are teenagers on a summer holiday with their parents. The annual trip to Ridinghouse Bay is uneventful, until an enigmatic young man starts paying extra attention to Kirsty. Something about him makes Gray uncomfortable—and it’s not just because he’s a protective older brother.

Who is the man on the beach? Where is Lily’s missing husband? And what ever happened to the man who made such a lasting and disturbing impression on Gray?

“A mystery with substance” (Kirkus Reviews), I Found You is a delicious collision course of a novel, filled with the believable characters, stunning writing, and “surprising revelations all the way up to the ending” (Booklist) that make the New York Times bestselling author of Then She Was Gone Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
Lisa Jewell lives in London with her husband and their cat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I could not put this book down. It is told from a few different perspectives and story lines, however it was not hard keeping up with each character. I have not been able to get into a book like this in awhile! I would highly recommend if you like the genre of thrillers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! This is the second book I have read written by Lisa Jewell and I'm completely sold on her. She is a fantastic writer. Real characters you can identify with, great twists, super plots. I've already started my third novel of hers and ordered two more. Don't know how I have not picked up one of her books before but I'm so happy I've found her!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 and a half stars Kept me in suspense and dread with what might happen. Deducted half star for aggravating character; she often behaved in such dumb ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great read, good twists! I worried while reading this novel that I had figured it all out too quickly but I was genuinely surprised by the end. Fantastic work by the author tying the three stories into one at the end. Read through this very quickly once i got hooked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good This was a good read. Dragged on a little for me as in I didn't devour it as I usually would a good book. Three stories/perspectives going on at the same time. It did leave me guessing for a while, until I managed to guess who was who and ended up being right
