Book Review and Giveaway: Lost and Found

Lost and found tour

This is the fourth novella in the Ripple Effect series and this might be my favorite so far.  So heartwarming and romantic, this one really touched my heart.  

Karey White does such a great job with the characterization. I love how Lydia wanted to experience adventure, but didn't quite have the courage to do more than plan adventures for herself.  She lives a lot through books and, though she has friends, she seems quite lonely.  Then she meets Blake at the airport, a Ryan Gosling lookalike that tells her he's trying to find a mysterious box his grandfather left for him.  When their flight is delayed she makes the last second decision to help him find the box and her adventure finally begins. 

Blake is a motivated guy who wants to make partner at his firm.  At first he just seems like every other good looking guy with an eye for a high flying career and no life, but we soon see his kind heart and when we finally find out what was in the box? Oh, get the Kleenex!  I loved the romance between Blake and Lydia, it's the type that makes your heart go pitty pat as you read.  *le sigh*

The other thing I really liked about this book was the attention to detail in the location.  The author did a really great job with the setting. Made me want to go visit.  

Don't miss this one!  

Read on for the back copy and information about the giveaway!

Lost and Found by Karey White Lydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she's done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it's time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home. 

Blake feels like he's been sent on a wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he's on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he's going home, and that's that. But that's before he discovers his flight has been cancelled. When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.
