Lost & Found by Karey White Blog Tour, Review, and Giveaway

Lost and found tour 

Lost and Found by Karey White 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 wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he's on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he's going home, and that's that. But that's before he discovers his flight has been cancelled. When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.

My Review: 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 like she did. I loved the reoccurring theme and the pep talk she gave herself over and over again--be brave. Sometimes, it's hard to break out of the box, but Lydia realized that sometimes a person has to do that and the satisfaction that comes from doing so is very fulfilling.

Blake was awesome! His grandfather knew him well and the lesson he learned was really important. I loved how aware and thoughtful he was, not only towards Lydia, but towards Frankie, too. He was very chivalrous and thoughtful. I loved all the little things he planned to help Lydia out.

I've mentioned before how much I enjoy seeing the way this stories connect to one another. They're all so cute, different, and romantic. There were quite a few parts that had me smiling.
