I definitely enjoyed Lost and Found. It was short, sweet and satisfying, a perfect read for this Valentine's Day (which happens to be tomorrow..which is also the date this novella and other accompanying novellas will be released!!)
The story focuses on Aisha, a young woman who tries to move on from the death of her husband and only love in her life. A few years later, she meets her husband's best friend again: Liam, lady charmer. The three of them had always been as thick as thieves when John, Aisha's husband was alive, but when he died, it must have been too painful for both Aisha and Liam to face each other when the only thing they had in common was John. So when she meets Liam again on the anniversary of John's death, she thought it'd just be the same: mourning. Plot twist: Liam has been in love with her ever since they met. Will Aisha give another chance at love and can she? Or will she be a lost soul forever?
Gah. This story was so satisfying. It's not too long and could give hope to the single people on Valentine's Day (true love is somewhere) or could just be a cozy read for those with partners (i'm so glad I have *significant other*). It made me, lonely girl dating her books, very happy, for one. The story was delightfully well-written and thoroughly enjoyed some of the authors descriptions of love and pain and loss. Take these three sentences for example: "Everyone meant well because they hadn't been through it. And the ones who had, they lied, because it didn't get better. What got better was your heart's ability to bury the pain deep inside and face the day, acting normal." I mean, look at that!! Does it not pierce right through your heart?
It shot through mine.
I would say that the book is more for young adults, adults and a more mature audience (as opposed to tweens or anyone younger than the age of 15) as there are certain parts that are *steamy*, so keep this novella away from your kids or anyone you wouldn't want to show a horror film to. (It's definitely not a horror book, but you get the idea.)
Lost & Found, along with 5 other romantic novellas (for Valentine's Day) is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be officially released tomorrow! :)
I received a copy of Lost & Found in exchange for an honest review :) (also, Shilpa, you rock!!)
~ Hearts must be broken was a dark story. But very enjoyable. A ghost is hunting Anaias it wants revenge on her and she needs helps. So she turns to Damon. I really liked Damon and was rooting for them the whole way through this story. Things were complicated between them but she didn’t want a realtionship. Sometimes I wanted to smack Anais but a very good read.
~ Lost and Found I thought was a cute read. I felt sorry for Aisha at times beacuse of her ex-boyfriend at times. I was also rooting for her and Liam. I thought he was a very sweet guy and was good for Aisha. A very sweet read.
~ Avalanche I wasn’t to found of this story didn’t really care for it but it was a very intense read. I usually don’t find a story that I usually don’t like.
~ What’s Better Than A Book Boyfriend was a cute read. I really enjoyed this. A cute story for sure.
~Not Today is another good story to read. Sad sweet and romance.
Definitely check these out if you like romance novels. These are cute stories.
I received a eARC of this book to give a honest review.
“Lola Flannigan” by Abigail Drake was exceptional. The short storyline had obstacles, suspense, twists and turns that Lola, Morgan, and all of the characters had to face. I felt a part of the story through each and every page. After the story had completed, I found myself wanting more, a desire to know what happened after that final page.
“What’s Better Than A Book Boyfriend?” by Sarah Vance-Tompkins was a novella that definitely drew the reader in. I found myself wanting to continue reading about Charlie, Hank, and the story of the library, after the novella had concluded. Ms. Vance-Tompkins created a storyline that had you feeling what the main characters were feeling.
The remaining 4 novellas were great reads, as well. “Hearts Must Be Broken” by Birdie Hall, with characters Anais and Damon, “Not Today” by Lisa Hahn, with characters Emily and Ezra, “Avalanche” by Kim Briggs, with characters Lexi and Gabe, “Lost & Found” by Shilpa Mudiganti, with characters Aisha and Liam, all drew you into the characters, the storylines, and left me wanting to find out what happened.
Each author did an exquisite job at presenting, laying out, and find a wonderful conclusion to each of their novellas, with the limited space a novella allows. Definitely recommend this book of novellas.
