Val’s review convinced me to get this book a try (as her reviews often do) and wow, I’m so happy it did. This well written novel is stunning and it tackles some very interesting questions. Often in fiction readers, and authors, struggle with the idea of authenticity and whether a character or action is “realistic.” Even though it’s fiction, readers want a story that’s believable. Here the author offers characters that are completely believable and infused with such honesty you can’t help but kno ...more

This is another book that I was sucked in by the blurb and it really had me on the fence about deciding if it was my own personal pet peeve that stops me from seeing what a wonderful book this was.

LOST AND FOUND is a fairly short read but I would not say it is an easy read. Almost the entire story takes place in an isolated beach house that is being renovated by Mark Connor and as such everything feels more intense.

Mark operates as a sole building contractor where possible and he does well at th
Lost and Found is a story of two men from two era of conflict, society’s reaction to their sexual orientations, as well as their own acceptance of it, and how they’ve emerged wounded and damaged into the present. It’s a short story but an extremely touching one, with immense emotion packed into its few pages. There’s surprising little actual sex in the story, characterization and plot here appearing more important. Mark’s disillusionment and desire to keep his memories alive are well contrasted ...more

A surprising book. I expected to struggle a lot more with this story. I haven't served in the military or had any experience with the physical danger and the resulting psychological trauma that results from that. Mark is a Vietnam vet so damaged from the lost of many friends and his lover in the war, he barely is alive inside. Josh comes to help with the remodeling of a home. While there he sees the pain in Mark. He recognizes it for what it is because he has dealt with violence while in the mil ...more
this was uh an okay read. nothing that was great but it wasnt all bad. sadly this wasnt something that kept me interested. the characters were kind of flat for me both as individuals and with the attraction. but it had its moments where I felt it was enjoyable. so with that ill rate it a 3 ...more
Wow this story was full of emotions, humor and sarcasm. I loved this couple. Both were damaged from wars but still they clicked instantly. They both were on same wave line, even being so different. This story was definitely hard if you consider the topic of this story, but even so, it was really well written book. Definitely recommended story!!

Overall, a pretty good read. Had problems not snickering out loud at the sometimes awful dialog, but otherwise the characters were likable and entertaining. Read this in one afternoon, so it was good enough for me to keep turning pages.
