about book: (summary from Goodreads)

"Yates packs an emotional punch with this masterful, multilayered contemporary…pitch-perfect plotting and carefully crafted characters make for a story that’s sure to linger in readers’ minds.” —Publishers Weekly

New York Times bestselling author Maisey Yates dazzles with this powerful novel of sisterhood, secrets and how far you’d go to protect someone you love…

Ruby McKee is a miracle. Found abandoned on a bridge as a newborn baby by the McKee sisters, she’s become the unofficial mascot of Pear Blossom, Oregon, a symbol of hope in the wake of a devastating loss. Ruby has lived a charmed life, and when she returns home after traveling abroad, she’s expecting to settle into that charm. But an encounter with the town’s black sheep makes her question the truth about her mysterious past.

Dahlia McKee knows it’s not right to resent Ruby for being special. But uncovering the truth about Ruby’s origins could allow Dahlia to carve her own place in Pear Blossom history.

Recently widowed Lydia McKee has enough on her plate without taking on Ruby’s quest for answers. Especially when her husband’s best friend, Chase, is beginning to become a complication she doesn’t want or need.

Marianne Martin is glad her youngest sister is back in town, but it’s hard to support Ruby’s crusade when her own life is imploding.

When the quest for the truth about Ruby’s origins uncovers a devastating secret, will the McKee sisters fall apart or band together?

my thoughts:

Wow! What a story! Talk about emotional and compelling read. The Lost and Found Girl by Maisey Yates packs quite the punch. 

Ruby is back home and ready to settle into a charmed life in the town of Pear Blossom.  She has her sisters and her town supporting her. The future is bright. Except, a blight settles in and won't leave Ruby alone. Who is she? Where did she come from? What happened to her parents? Ruby was found abandoned and taken in by the McKee family as a newborn baby. Her past stayed in the past and no one ever questioned it. However, now, Ruby is finally questioning it all. The only problem is that her sisters have their own complicated lives to deal with and helping Ruby uncover the story of her origins is not at the top of their list of priorities. 

Yates has written a thoughtful and emotional story that pulls you in right from the start. She writes both sisterhood, family, relationships, and so much more with such clarity and understanding - it all makes for quite a heartwarming.  Of course there are moments that will break your heart to pieces. This is one book that will have you feeling all the feels. I absolutely LOVED it to bits.

I'd happily recommend The Lost and Found Girl to anyone and everyone looking for their next great read - check it out ASAP!
