Description

Janelle Marshall's life is finally going according to plan. Her perfect, upscale career—and her perfect, successful boyfriend—will make her future as secure and predictable as her childhood never was. And with luck, Little Bill, the grandfather who raised her, will someday understand why she'd rather play it safe than be impulsive. But just when she should be happiest, she gets a distressing call: Little Bill has gone missing. Now Janelle must go to the one place she's long avoided—the tiny mountain town of Mammoth Falls, South Dakota.
 
Tracking down her eccentric grandfather is easier said than done, and Janelle has no choice but to stay as long as it takes. Yet little by little, she's drawn in by the unique town, the helpful locals, and their distinctly straightforward ways. Before long, she realizes that those who also care about Little Bill are struggling with their own vulnerabilities—and secrets as deep as the mistakes they try to set right. As Janelle learns to draw on their support and hard-won experience, she'll challenge her past, come to terms with her present—and chart her own surprising course forward.
 
Vibrant, heartfelt, and uplifting, Between Lost and Found is about gaining the courage to take chances, learning to let go, and rediscovering the family—and the self—you thought you knew...

        June 15, 2017
        When a Washington, D.C., executive hears her grandfather has disappeared in South Dakota, she hops on a plane, risking her relationship and her job, only to discover it was a ruse--but now he's disappeared for real.Mark and Janelle are the perfect African-American Washington couple: "They looked good together; she looked like the black Ann Coulter next to his black Tucker Carlson." But on the night of the housewarming party for the new place they've just bought together, she receives a mysterious phone call from a woman she doesn't know telling her that her grandfather has "gone missing in Mammoth Falls." Frightened and distracted, she barely registers that Mark is proposing to her, and when she gets on a plane to South Dakota, Mark is disapproving rather than supportive. After she lands, she learns that Pops' girlfriend, Connie, made the call at his request to lure Janelle away from Mark, since Pops doesn't think he's worthy of her. But now that she's in town, no one knows what's happened to him and whether he's in trouble or hiding out to keep Janelle around. Yet as the days tick by, past and present wounds and tensions rise up--for Janelle and in the town--and as she tries to juggle her job and her relationship from a distance, she begins to question what truly matters, especially when she must confront an unexpected attraction to the local blond, blue-eyed police chief. Deftly drawn characters populate a quirky town and enhance an already creative, engaging plot. A touching, nuanced, adult coming-of-age novel that includes an interracial romance and keen studies of guilt, bias, and small-town America.
