No one, not even Jeri Satch herself, could explain exactly why she had taken a job hundreds of miles away from her family, friends, and Warren, her perfect boyfriend. It was just something she had to do...because it felt right.

Assigned to work with the bookkeeping staff at a minimum security prison, Jeri was invited to tour the facilities. There she saw a strong young man

I thought the whole plot was very clever...and all and all a great book!
I didn't like jerry's boy friend.
I thought he was a jerk...but other than that it was good.

LDS fiction. The plot was very preditable, the romance(s) were expected, and the ending was over-the-top happy. And yet I have to admit that I rather enjoyed reading this one.

I liked this book. It is definitely an LDS read. Others LDS authors I have read only hint at some LDS topics this has a lot of prayer, testimony, gospel and more to it. It was definitely not written by an English major making it an easy read, but intriguingly entertaining none the less! It is fairly predictable if you read a lot of suspense but you can't help but want to read it anyway. He has a fun sense of humor to his writing that I enjoy, and can't help but want to be defensive against some ...more

Quick read, good plot, clean. I like to read Poulson because he is a former cop but as a writer he is a bit of a cheese. I know people get offended by that.
Plot....two young friends playing, one gets kidnapped, the other can't let go that they saw their friend kidnapped and she spends her life trying to find him.......or thinking about him. Not top literature but a good clean read. As usual I am thrown off by the names of the characters..........I have name issues.

I love his books. They are so good. There's action and a love story in one. His books are tasteful and captivating.

I do find it odd that I just bought this book and another one from the library book sale at the city's summer event and both were about kidnaps.

This is a fun quick read. There are a few parts that were a little annoying or cheesey, but overall I enjoyed reading this book.

Pretty good story. Not because of the writing style or because he's an exceptional author, but just because of the plot. Especially if ya'll like LDS (chick-flickY) novels.

I love I'll find you, By Clair Poulson, It is great that I can find clean books about so many different things, I never thought i would find a good book about suspense.

This novel is infuriating. The plotting is okay, I guess, if you don't mind chains of events that are too unbelievable to ever happen that way. The editing is terrible—over and over again there are sentences that someone should have caught, such as: "Would you be agreeable to signing an agreement?"

But this author cannot write women. The protagonist is a female who, every time she is on the page in a scene, dissolves into tears. There is no event or situation that does not create a waterfall casc

My dad always buys me a book for Christmas and this was the one this year. It was an entertaining book even though it was quite obvious it was written by an LDS author. I'm not sure what it is about so many of the LDS fiction writers, but they all seem to have that same... something. I can't quite put my finger on it. Naivete? It just had a little bit of that cheesy quality, but still a fun read.

Aizlyn needed to read a mystery for school and I had no idea what to suggest since I only read teen paranormal romances. My sister in law recommended this lds fiction mystery and I actually loved it! Thanks Kaley!

This book was a fast reader. It was a good suspense book without the filth that usually fill this type of book-LDS author. Lots of mormon references-some made it a little too churchy for me. Otherwise, a great read.
Jul 18, 2010 John rated it really liked it
I really enjoyed this book, probably because of the child abduction angle. So many of the real stories end tragically, that it's nice to fantasize about one that isn't so tragic.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as some of his others. The heroin was a bit of a wimp.

Intense Story

What an intense book that kept me anxious for each chapter - hard to put down because of the struggles each character played. I love this author's writing and because of his law enforcement career I can't help but think that his stories come from his experiences. We truly learn from this story how ones life and parents can determine the outcome of a child. We also learn about commitment of a friend to keep a promise. We learn that if we take things to the Lord we will be guided and

I'll Find You: A Novel of Suspense Boyfriend Drama and Jeri Crying Her Eyes Out Every 2 Pages

I wanted to like this book. I read the synopsis on the back, and decided that it sounded quite intriguing. Intriguing enough that I dismissed the fact that it was LDS Fiction, which are normally books that I hate. I never expected it to be a thought-provoking novel or anything, but it at least sounded like a fun, suspenseful, short read.

Unfortunately, this reminded me why I stay away from LDS Fiction. I

"a terrifying scream from outside penetrated the house. Mindy whirled, and tore through the door across the hall, and to the window of Rusty's room. Jeri was screaming, Rusty was nowhere to be seen, and an old green car was leaving a trail of blue smoke as it hurtled away from the curb.
"'I'll find you!' Jeri screamed as Rusty's head popped up in the front seat of the old sedan and then was shoved roughly back down by the driver." This is sample of the book "I'll Find You!" it is a very interesti

I liked the over all message of the book but the romance was a bit cheesy and then ending wasn't too climactic and very predictable.
May 03, 2011 Annalisa rated it really liked it
I've never read an LDS fiction book that is a bit of a thriller before. I enjoyed the mild suspense that this book gave you and thought the romance was great. I like that the author himself has so much experience with law enforcement to really give facts for a situation like this. If you like LDS fiction you will really like this book.

Recently I read the book, “I’ll find you” by Clair M. Poulson. Jeri Satch is haunted by her long lost friend Rusty who was kidnapped by a man. Rusty was kidnapped when they were playing outside one day and Jeri promised she would find him. This book was very well made. The author made it very interesting by putting something always next to interfere with Jeri finding Rusty. I will be honest though at times it would get tedious to read. It seemed to get boring after she went through this emotion ...more

Why does so much LDS fiction have to be bland? This one would fall into the bland category. There were two things that really bothered me. First, does the main character have to cry every danged second! Really, Poulson? Couldn't you have a stronger female character. Honestly, she cried when her boyfriend asked her a question, she cried at the thought of having to talk to Rusty, she cried on the phone, she cried at her job, she just plain cried constantly. As you can tell, I am not a fan of her c ...more

This was the first book of Poulson's that I read, and it's what got me hooked. The leading lady, Jeri, watched her best friend get kidnapped when they were kids. She shouted "I'll find you" to the back of the car that drove away with him. Years later she is prompted to take a job at a prison far away from friends and family. One particular inmate makes an unforgettable impression on Jeri. His resemblance to her childhood friend is uncanny, and she can tell he doesn't quite fit the typical inmate ...more
