Publisher's Summary

Single mother Amy Parkens feels trapped by a boring job, low pay, and no time for her young daughter. But that's before $200,000 in cold, hard cash arrives in an unmarked box. Desperately needing the money, Amy fears a setup or a connection to her mother's suicide 20 years earlier. So she sets out to find the source.

A decent, responsible small-town doctor, Ryan Duffy didn't expect to inherit a fortune from his electrician father, who had millions stashed away in the attic. Did it come from extortion, robbery, or some other terrible crime? Painful as it is, Ryan is drawn to his father's dark past, determined to find the truth.

Desperate for answers, Amy and Ryan soon cross paths on a dangerous quest that takes them through a labyrinth of deception and blackmail - leading them to a man of unfathomable power who holds the key to their fortunes...and their lives.

    Story
    "tangled web"

    The book takes a common premise--the abrupt, inexplicable appearance of too much money-and explores the intricate web of cause and effect leading to its arrival. Along the way several overlapping stories get fleshed out in interesting ways. The book relies a bit on the television meme where the audience knows information a character does not, which is an effective way to get the reader engaged with and frustrated by a character's actions . . . nonetheless, a few characters in this book seem to overreact and fail to listen in unrealistic or over-the-top ways that are good for prolonging the narrative tension but bad for verisimilitude.

    Story
    "Expect a gripping tale from Grippando"
    If you could sum up Found Money in three words, what would they be?

    Interesting, well-written, twisty


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Grippando and Mim E. Rivas ? Why or why not?

    I might be willing to read another book from Mr. Grippando. I would have to be in the right mood though.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by George Guidall?

    Mmmm, probably. He wasn't the worst narrator I have ever listened to. Wasn't the best.....he was ok.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Near the end, when the reason for all the trouble the heroine experiences/experienced is explained, it was very twisty.

    Story
    "Captivating but no likable characters."

    I found the book interesting but due to it's continuous nagging sensation that I just did not like any character and because of this there was no strong affinity for the book. I kept forcing myself to keep listening because of the plot but got no enjoyment from reading the book due to not feeling a bond with any of the people in the book. I would not buy the book a second time if given the opportunity. I got no satisfaction from reading the book.

    I love to read, the books need to be fairly complicated or interesting in their own way. I belong to a book club that selects great books.

    Story
    "A real page turner"

    This book took twists and turns that I did not expect. Well written, loved his descriptions, and wished the book had not ended. Tightly written, it did not waste the readers time in rehashing details. I am going to listen to his other books, I read so much, it is nice to find a new writer that I like. Bravo - will recommend this book to my book clubs.

    Story
    "Good - But could be Better !!!"
    Would you try another book from James Grippando and Mim E. Rivas and/or George Guidall?

    Definitely with George Guidell... wish he read the entire series !!! I would buy them all.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I find the courtroom really adverse to the plaintiff. The judge always ruling against the underdog to the point of sheer irritation. Like " get on with it" where is the law? this part of the writing I DO NOT enjoy at all, however, the plot and movement of the storyline are very compelling.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Character, resonance and a depth of personality


    Do you think Found Money needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. It is fine as it is. Thank you
