The Lovely and the Lost
The Lovely and the Lost | Jennifer Lynn Barnes
9 posts | 7 read | 4 to read
Kira Bennett's earliest memories are of living alone and wild in the woods. She has no idea how long she was on her own or what she had to do to survive, but she remembers the moment that Cady Bennett and one of her search-and-rescue dogs found her. Adopted into the Bennett family, Kira still struggles with human interaction years later, but she excels at the family business: search-and-rescue. Along with Cady's son, Jude, and their neighbor, Free, Kira works alongside Cady to train the world's most elite search-and-rescue dogs. Someday, all three teenagers hope to put their skills to use, finding the lost and bringing them home. But when Cady's estranged father, the enigmatic Bales Bennett, tracks his daughter down and asks for her help in locating a missing childone of several visitors who has disappeared in the Sierra Glades National Park in the past twelve monthsthe teens find themselves on the frontlines sooner than they could have ever expected. As the search through 750,000 acres of unbridled wilderness intensifies, Kira becomes obsessed with finding the missing child. She knows all too well what it's like to be lost in the wilderness, fighting for survival, alone. But this case isn't simple. There is more afoot than a single, missing girl, and Kira's memories threaten to overwhelm her at every turn. As the danger mounts and long-held family secrets come to light, Kira is forced to question everything she thought she knew about her adopted family, her true nature, and her past.

Jennifer Lynn Barnes is one of my favorite writers. Went on hold for the print copy of this one at my work library so was delighted when I discovered it was available via hoopla from my home library. I'm already a third of the way through and can't wait to read more.

I read this months ago via #netgalley and now it‘s out in the wild! Here‘s part of my original review:

“As usual, I was immediately sucked right in. JLB knows how to start a book...For me, it slowed a bit in the middle. The conclusion, while satisfying, was a bit rushed and there are some unanswered questions and under-explored resolutions that leave room for a series. I love her writing but this wasn‘t her strongest.”

A great mystery with search-and-rescue dogs and pasts that the characters don‘t want to remember. For my full review https://www.instagram.com/p/BxJHtT2n8FN/?igshid=12bt0ssurhxn8

This was a #netgalley title I‘ve been reading on my kindle at the kids‘ bedtime all week. It was a super quick read and some of it was a little far fetched, but I didn‘t see the surprise twist at the end and generally enjoyed the story. I‘ll definitely pick up the sequel.

I finished my first #readathon book! I was so excited to receive an advanced copy of Jennifer Lynn Barnes‘ new book. I am a huge fan. This book does not disappoint. I loved Kira and her family including the dogs! Jude was absolutely delightful. I like how Barnes always writes about broken people. They are never perfect and often struggling with some really hard stuff. I am hoping this book will turn into a series!

I didn‘t get the little congratulations page when I hit my goal (😢) maybe because GR knew I had revised it down twice. I had originally set my goal for 125 but I was in a bit of a reading funk for a large part of the year. I am very happy with my 97 books and the great books I read toward the end of the year to get me there but I‘m setting it to 125 again for 2019 and hoping I can avoid the book blahs this year!

ElishaLovesBooks That‘s a fabulous number especially with a book funk! 🎉 (edited) 11mo

Kodak2057 I did the same thing except I didn‘t reach my goal and it wasn‘t nearly as many as yours lol hoping to shake it off for the new year! 11mo
MarriedtoMrT @Kodak2057 Some years are better than others and I‘m hoping for a good year. (Thankfully I was just in a funk not a total slump or that number would‘ve been way lower!) Cheers to you on a new year of reading!🥂 (edited) 11mo
Bookwormjillk I was in a reading funk for part of this year too. Here‘s hoping for better reading in 2019. 11mo

As usual, I was immediately sucked right in. JLB knows how to start a book. You instantly get a sense of who the characters are and the tone of the story. For me, it slowed a bit in the middle. The conclusion, while satisfying, was a bit rushed and there are some unanswered questions and under-explored resolutions that leave room for a series. I love her writing but this wasn‘t her strongest.

Early Christmas present to me when I was approved for this one on Netgalley! I just love JLB‘s writing. I‘m already sucked in. Now to carve out some reading time. Napping has been trumping reading over the last few days.
