Synopsis: Avery Broussard has the curse of seeing lost things (and make no mistake about it, it is a curse). Missing belongings and beloved pets, lost love and loved ones—she sees it all. Long ago, that curse destroyed her own chance at true love, causing her to flee her Louisiana home, vowing never to return. She’s kept that promise too, until a phone call from her estranged grifter father forces her hand. Her big brother is dying, and she may be his last remaining hope.
Avery wants nothing more than to rescue her brother, but doing so pulls her into a labyrinth of lies and deceit rooted in her own lost love and her family’s twisted history. It doesn’t help that a little girl has gone missing, and the abduction is tied to a killer Avery failed to help the FBI catch. With no time to spare, Avery realizes her curse might well be the only thing she can trust. Is it too much to hope that she might save her brother and find the missing girl before she becomes the killer’s next victim?
Review: Avery Broussard sees lost things, which isn’t a blessing, but a curse. Lost pets, lost hopes and dreams, and lost souls. Growing up in a grifter family, Avery has had to think on her feet but her time with the FBI had reinforced her skittish nature. Her curse has cost her a lot, including her home, but now she’s forced to return in order to potentially save he brother’s life. THE SAINTS OF THE LOST AND FOUND is a Southern Gothic novel which speaks to the heart of family, love, and hidden secrets. Avery’s present is viciously tied to her past, which is unknown to her due to a horrific car accident as a child. Suspenseful and heart-breaking, THE SAINTS OF THE LOST AND FOUND will touch the deepest recesses of your soul.
