There is something about an unexpected call and being told your parent, sibling or grandparent is missing. The air leaves your lungs while nerves are on edge. This is how Janelle Marshall felt when she received a similar call about her grandfather in, Between Lost and Found by Shelly Stratton. Little Bill’s girlfriend, Connie calls Janelle with the news even though she knows there is a hidden meaning. It is funny reading, what our family members will do when they feel the mate you have picked is not right for you. Little Bill knows there will be consequences for the event he puts in motion, but to him he has to in order to save his granddaughter from hurt and pain.
Janelle puts her career and wedding plans on hold to rush to search for her grandfather. After settling in Mammoth Fall, Connie shows her around and introduces her to some of the townsfolk. She starts to feel comfortable seeming the small town has friendly people especially Sam. Sam is the local sheriff and the man who is heading the search for Little Bill. Janelle reminds him of someone from his past, which draws him to her. As the search continues, Janelle starts to learn a lot about her grandfather, her fiancé and her attraction to Sam.
Between Lost and Found was a moving story about a grandfather’s determination to protect his granddaughter from marrying the wrong man even though his strategies may have been over the top. It was also about a woman recognizing were she belonged instead of the make believe world she was existing in. This book had a hint of drama mixed with suspense and mystery, which I love in a book. The anticipating of finding Little Bill and the affect his absence had on everyone in town was unbelievable as well as seeing if Sam and Janelle would let their attraction grow into something more. I definitely recommend this book to others and look forward to reading more of this author’s work.
