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.

Book Three: Righting a Wrong - Review

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-worked lawyer that doesn't realize he's been spending so much time at work that he's been missing his life.  When Lydia joins him on his quest to find a box from his grandfather that was left with a long lost friend - everything seems to go right for them.  Lydia comes out of her shell and Blake takes a break from the stress of work and actually enjoys himself.

This was a cute addition to the Ripple Effect series with lots of really great moments.  It was more syrupy than the others and I wish there had been a little less internal worrying from both characters.  I'm still very excited to see what the next book has in store.  This is going to end up being one of my favorite novella series I think.
