Publisher's Summary

Cady Briggs is very useful to Mack Easton - her expertise in art and antiques helps his shadowy, low-profile company, Lost and Found, find missing treasures for high-paying clients.

But as Cady's beloved Aunt Vesta warns her, being useful to a client is one thing - being used is another. Still, Cady finds it hard to resist the magnetic pull Mack exerts, an attraction she felt from the first time she heard his voice on the phone. And as their work together puts them in an explosive situation, Cady wonders just how much she'd risk for the thrill of being with this man.

When Aunt Vesta dies suddenly, and strange developments affect her family's prestigious gallery, Cady must turn to a man she isn't sure she can trust. And instead of tracking down missing masterpieces, they'll be hunting down a killer.

Wonderful story.

Full of mystery and intrigue. Keeps you guessing to the end. I just wish audible had a rating system like movies. This is full of swearing, I'd say a PG-13 at the least. That's the only reason it didn't get 5 stars. I could have done without all the language.

It was OK

What made the experience of listening to Lost and Found the most enjoyable?

I can't rave over this book. It was neither great nor awful. I enjoyed it. I doubt I'll ever listen to it again though. It just didn't touch me in that way.

Would you recommend Lost and Found to your friends? Why or why not?

Very few of my friends read romantic suspense. If anyone asked me about it and it was a genre they like, I'd say it's a fine book, but not outstanding.

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

She did a very good job keeping the voices separate. I enjoy listening to books she narrates.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Nope.

Straightforward, Classic Romantic Suspense

Lost and Found is a classic Krentz story with characters that are family-centered, but facing a murderer and dangerous challenges.
Cady Briggs is an expert in art and antiquities; she meets Mack Easton when she consults with his business that tracks and retrieves lost or stolen art. They’re attracted and experience combustion; then they’re estranged when there’s a misunderstanding. They’re drawn back together investigating Aunt Vesta’s death and why she blocked her company’s merger. They track and face down the bad guys and live happily ever after.
Burr does a very good job with narration a la Joyce Bean.
Recommend for straightforward entertainment with mystery and romance.

Not a fan of the narrator or the story.

The author while trying to give the reader exposition about the art world undermines the so-called expertise of her heroine. Also the heroine, who is supposed to be in her early to mid thirties reads as too naive and a little bit stupid, which is contrasted by the hero knowing everything and always being right. The depiction of a panic disorder rang as disingenuous and at times felt tacked on to the heroine tomake her seem more interesting.
As to the performance, the performance values, i.e. echo effects when characters are on the phone or speaking through a microphone, these were good. However, the voice for the heroine was too young contrasted with her too old sounding cousin. All of the young adults in this book are voiced in an annoying too young/too stupid manner, which made it hard to sympathize with them.

Excellent

This book is an excellent Jayne Ann Krentz. It has her usual flair, intrigue and happy ending. Excellent villains, heroes and heroines.

Mystery and romance, can't beat it.

If you could sum up Lost and Found in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, twisting and romantic.

What other book might you compare Lost and Found to and why?

Maybe Nora Roberts Blue Smoke. Although not quite as gripping as Nora Roberts work, it has the same kind of elements..... trying to figure out who the real bad guy is even though you know the main characters will end up together. Plenty of chemistry and the female lead is not a screaming sissy.

Have you listened to any of Sandra Burr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to Nora Roberts Three Sisters Trilogy several times and really enjoy this narrator. There is enough difference in the characters so you don't have to guess who is suppose to be speaking.

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

Surprisingly, it was when Katie was talking to Mack's daughter. While there was no great drama, the way she let her know that maybe it was time to let her father have his own life was very gentle and insightful.

Any additional comments?

Nora Roberts work is my favorite and I have most of her audible books, but I've recently started listening to Jayne Krentz and enjoy it enough to now have most of her work as well. I will definitely be on the look out for more of her books.
