I Found You: A Novel
By Lisa Jewell

Alice, a single mom, finds a man outside her house she doesn't know. He has no name, no jacket, and no memory. 

At the same time Lilly, a newlywed, realizes her husband is missing. He leaves for work at the same time each day and comes home at the same time each night. He never came home from work yesterday and she is beginning to worry. 

Twenty- three years ago, the Ross family went on their yearly summer holiday to the beach. Everything about this summer trip is uneventful until they meet a young man. Something seems off about him. Should they be worried? 

I Found You is full of twists and turns. The characters are fresh and relatable. The story is strong without being overly violent. This is one of my favorite mystery books of the year so far!


“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 New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jewell so beloved by audiences on both sides of the Atlantic.
