Blurb:

They say life can change in an instant…

After losing her sister in a devastating car accident, chef Quinn Weller is finally getting her life back on track. She appears to have it all: a loving family, a dream job in one of L.A.'s hottest eateries, and a gorgeous boyfriend dying to slip an engagement ring on her finger. So why does she feel so empty, like she's looking for a missing piece she can't find?

The answer comes when a lawyer tracks down Quinn and reveals a bombshell secret and a mysterious inheritance that only she can claim. This shocking revelation washes over Quinn like a tidal wave. Her whole life has been a lie.

On impulse, Quinn gives up her job, home, and boyfriend. She heads up the coast to the small hometown of Wildstone, California, which is just a few hours north, but feels worlds apart from Los Angeles. Though she doesn't quite fit in right away, she can't help but be drawn to the town’s simple pleasures…and the handsome, dark-haired stranger who offers friendship with no questions asked.

As Quinn settles into Wildstone, she discovers there's another surprise in store for her. The inheritance isn't a house or money, but rather something earthshattering, something that will make her question everything she thought she knew about herself, about her family. Now with a world of possibilities opening up to Quinn, she must decide if this new life is the one she was always meant to have—and the one that could finally give her the fulfillment she's searched so long for.

ARC Romance smart and funny

Lost and Found Sisters was everything that I was hoping for and more. I love the focus on family, new friendships, and characters that need growth and healing.

 

This story made me laugh, cry, and it gave me all the feels in between. There was a great balance between the sad and entertaining. Quinn is a character that definitely needed the most growth. With her losing her feels and becoming numb to the world around her because of the loss of her sister, made reading her story more poignant. Thrown into the mix was humor and a little romance. I appreciated the fact that it wasn’t focused too much on the romance. Mick does help Quinn along the way, but it was all about Quinn figuring things out for herself.

 

“She watched him stride off. Maybe she couldn’t find her feels, but apparently she could still appreciate a nice ass.”

 

Thank goodness for snippets like this. It really endears you to the story.

Okay so I’m not one to give away spoilers but as the title of the book suggests, Quinn does find a certain something that changes her world. I loved that added aspect to the storyline; it made for more drama and tested her character for sure.

There was a point towards the end where I thought it was bit rushed. It was an interesting aspect to Mick’s life which we do get a glimpse of, especially his point of view. Although, I thought it was wrapped up to quick. Some might argue that the main story belonged to Quinn, so I can accept that.

 

Overall, if you like small town settings, family dramas, tearjerkers, and laugh out loud moments, then this is definitely the book for you. It also has the feel of a woman’s fiction story. I’m totally excited that this is a series, because there are characters in this story that I would love to read about.

Luckily for him, he shut the door immediately after saying this,  so she didn’t get the chance to kill him.
