I thought I was going to really like this one, but as I got further into it I found it to only be so so. It had some good parts, but the heroine just became too much to take...too brave, too wonderful, and the storyline lost it's real-ness and became unnecessarily long.

Really enjoyed this book. Storyline was excellent and characters were real. Have read other books by this author and would recommend if you like romantic mystery stories.

Thanks to Barnes & Noble's Nook free Friday for introducing me to Joyce Lamb via Found Wanting. I enjoyed reading this book. I was hooked from the very start of the story. I have read three more of her books and just bought four more! Great reading - great author!

In Colorado, her mom arrives to see her vanished daughter Alaina Chancellor for the first time in nine years. Not long afterward, Alaina's former lover and now brother-in-law shows up and tries to rape her, but her mother intercedes. As Alaina flees again with her son Jonah (from her 'interlude a decade ago with her former lover), her mother dies in a car crash.......................... Five years later in Chicago, private detective Mitch Kane, retained by Alina, easily finds Alaina, who he believes is a nasty piece of work for running off with his employer's son. However, he begins to change his mind as he observes the love between mother and child and when incidents occur to innocent people. He realizes that his cilent played him for a fool using his own feelings towards his ex-wife as a tool. As Mitch falls in love with Alaina, he vows to keep her and her son safe from a killier wolf in lamb's clothing........................ This is an exhilarating romantic suspense starring a wonderful female protagonist and a born again admirer of the courage of women. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action especially as Addison's thugs do their assignment. Though how no one could see past Addison's outer shell to the ambitious violent killer inside seems stretched even for a clever sociopath villain, fans of taut thrillers will want to read FOUND WANTING.....................
