A Ripple Effect Romance Novella

Lydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she's done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it's time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home.

Blake feels like he's been sent on a

So sweet!! This was such a heartwarming romance that made me feel all sappy and happy 😊 I would recommend this book to anyone that likes no angst, no ow/om drama and is ok with no real mystery. It was a simple romance, but still had what I call, the feels. Loved it!

I really liked this one. It was just a sweet, cute read. We met Lydia in Righting a Wrong, she is Jace's sister and is longing for some adventure in her otherwise clam life. She goes to North Carolina for the summer and ends up reading the whole time (sounds like a lovely vacation to me) and on her final day there she meets a handsome man at the airport. Blake is on his way home after a failed attempt at tracking down a mysterious box his grandfather wanted him to find.

Super cute and just what I was looking for in a book. I wanted a sweet, non angsty book to help me escape the post election doldrums and ensuing ugliness for a while. This delivered exactly what I needed. It's a quick, easy read.

Clean, sweet romance between young workaholic attorney and young elementary teacher. They meet in an airport and end up on a quest together. I liked the way they worked together and got to know each other. I also appreciated that as they spent time together they got to s

Lost and Found is the story I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into the most. Being a huge fan of Karey White I knew her story would be endearing and extremely romantic. One of the main things I have enjoyed about the Ripple Effect Romance series is getting to the end and finding out who the next book will be about. I make it a point not to read any of the synopsis' because I love the surprise of watching the characters being set up and trying to guess who the next one will feature.

This was such a fun, fast read! I don't generally have enough time to read a book straight through, but I just couldn't put this one down. Cambri offered Lydia her condo in North Carolina for the summer so she could go somewhere new and have adventures and excitement! However, Lydia wound up staying inside and reading and eating instead of getting out. While at the airport waiting for her flight home, she meets Blake, who's also from Colorado. He's a workaholic trying to make partner in his law ...more

We left Lydia in the previous book, ready to embark on an adventurous summer in North Carolina. This story picked up at the end of the summer, which was fine, since she didn't do much besides reading and eating. I know how that feels--sometimes I'm all talk and not brave enough to follow through with my big plans. A chance meeting with Blake and a canceled flight led to an exciting couple of days and the fun was crammed in.

Like I said, I could relate to Lydia. I live a lot through books, just li

This is the fourth novella in the Ripple Effect series and this might be my favorite so far. So heartwarming and romantic, this one really touched my heart.

Karey White does such a great job with the characterization. I love how Lydia wanted to experience adventure, but didn't quite have the courage to do more than plan adventures for herself. She lives a lot through books and, though she has friends, she seems quite lonely. Then she meets Blake at the airport, a Ryan Gosling lookalike that tell

A fun escape

Reading this novella was fun for me as it was short and sweet and was the perfect way to escape into a book for an evening.

Super cute story about two people who couldn't be more different but somehow find a common ground in their shared desire to solve the same mystery. I really liked Lydia and how she had a thirst for adventure but not enough courage to go out and find it. In a last-stitch effort to say she did more over the summer than read, she takes a chance on a handsome stranger, Blake. I really liked the way they got to know each other while looking for the message Blake's grandfather wanted him to have. Both ...more

I thought that this book was cute, fun, and has a super sweet romance. Lydia is the kind of person who is afraid to step out of her comfort zone. She’s living in Cambri’s apartment (from Righting a Wrong) and is supposed to have an adventurous summer, but instead spent the entire time reading about other people’s adventures. Then she meets Blake, who is searching for a box left to him by his grandfather. When their flight is cancelled, they decide to extend their trip and find Blake’s mysterious ...more

I absolutely loved this book. I laughed out loud in the first chapter then continued to smile, laugh, and sigh the rest of the way through. Karey White is an awesome writer and did a beautiful job telling Lydia's story. This novella is fun, touching, and romantic. I adored the characters and love that she brought Cambri back in for a cameo appearance. Read it! You'll love it. :)

This was a sweet one, especially given the limited space given for the completion of the story. (As I've said before, a real drawback of novellas over novels.)

This one told a simple story in a simple fashion, and it was sweet and believable. It mainly deals with the very beginning of a relationship, the forming of an attraction and possibility, which is more appropriate for a novella. You did, of course, learn the end result of everything, but the bulk of the novella was taken up with the tender

Even though Lydia enjoyed my kind of vacation... reading and eating takeout... she was supposed to have a more adventurous Summer vacation and it wasn't until she was heading home that it finally turned into that. Blake met Lydia when their flight was cancelled and together they decided to find the box he came to find before heading home. I loved their connection they built and how they were there for each other to accomplish what they were sent out to do. This was well written and I loved their ...more

This story grabbed me from the beginning and kept me engaged all the way through. It left me with a feel-good smile at the end. I liked the characters and their story was just right.

My Musings

An enjoyable read with engaging characters and a great plot. The writing style flows smoothly and the pacing is steady, no sagging middle. There is a bit of a mystery to solve. Happy reading 📚!

Cute short story

This was definitely short and sweet. It just felt a little too rushed for my tastes. Cute idea, but the delivery was just okay.

Happy reading!!

What a wonderful example of how a little bit of courage can bring about wonderfully unexpected rewards! While you can live life in the slow lane and be content and happy, is it worth missing out on surprise blessings that are ours if we would just reach out and grab them? Sometimes doing what we should do is even better than doing what we want to do. Who really knows what treasures are hidden just behind the door that we fear to open?

Lydia Sutton is the sister of Jace from book three in this series and I was excited to read her story. In book three Lydia was a laid back, easy going character and she was very reserved. She had no idea what the definition of the word fun was so she agreed to spend three months in Charlotte in Cambri's condo and report back to Cambri about her adventures. This book picks up at the airport where Lydia is waiting for her flight back home to Denver. She meets Blake Knowles, an attorney struggling ...more

I’m pretty sure I say this every time I review one of these books, but I can’t help it. I love them. I love the concept of “the ripple effect” where a character from a previous book has their story told. In this book it’s Lydia’s turn. Yeah!

Lydia decided to take the summer and do something for herself; something adventurous and out of her comfort zone. It took bravery and courage to travel to an unknown city and live by herself for the whole summer. She was supposed to have adventures and live i

I have finished reading all the six books of this Novella Series, and this is my absolute favourite of them all.

When Lydia moved into her sister-in-laws condo for the summer, she was supposed to have an exciting time and an adventurous time. But she spent it reading and on the day of her return, she felt rather disappointed with herself for not taking the chances. Blake has been working hard at becoming a partner at his firm. When he had taken a break to g

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

Lost and Found is the third novella in The Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series. I am really enjoying this series. I have never looked forward to getting my oil changed, but with this book in hand I was content to just sit and read. This novella is sweet and whimsical. Only once did I tear up, but I was able to keep them at bay.

Lost & Found by Karey White is the 4th book in the ‘Ripple Effect Romance Novella Series’. In Lost & Found we get to read Lydia’s story, and if you remember from book 3, Lydia is Jace’s sister.

Lydia is an elementary school teacher, she is very smart, pretty, and has never done anything adventurous. Cambri (from book 3 Righting A Wrong) offers Lydia her condo in North Carolina during for the Summer. There are a few stipulations for her though. The first one is to get out, meet people and

this was a sweet light fun read that teaches you something at the same time. For Lydia, she goes to the Carolina's to gain an adventure and bravery but spends her days reading too scared to try. For Blake he is there to get some perspective from something in a box his grandfather asks him to retrieve. Both fail but fate steps in.

Book Three, Righting a Wrong, ends with Lydia being given an opportunity for a summer vacation (and maybe a fling). Lost & Found picks up at the end of summer, where Lydia has finished her summer vacation and hasn't had the grand adventure that she had hoped. When her plane home gets cancelled and she meets Blake the opportunity for some excitement opens up for her again.

Lydia was a great character, she was awkward and shy, not sure how to handle the social scene sometimes. Blake is an over

I love a good book that puts a smile on my face and see the good in love.


Lydia is the sister of one of the main characters, Jace, from book three in this series. I liked her in that book, but I really liked her in this one. She is finishing her summer staying in her sister-in-law's condo. She was supposed to be brave and daring, maybe even have a summer fling. Instead, she did what I would have done and stayed home reading books and getting take-out.

At the airport she meets Blake, he is also on
