Now That I've Found You: 11/09/20

Now That I've Found You

Now That I've Found You by Kristina Forest is centered on the relationship between grand-daughter and grandmother. One is an up and coming star and the other has retired after a life time on the silver screen.

Evie Jones, named for her famous grandmother, was betrayed by her so-called best friend shortly after landing the role that would have launched her career. Now she's off the project and in New York to spend time with her grandmother. She's expecting an easy summer to get her head back on straight but nothing is the same. Gigi's driver is retired and there's a young musician, Milo, living part time with her.

And weirder yet, Gigi goes missing on Evie's first full day in New York. Which leaves the bulk of the book being about Evie and Milo's search for Gigi. Except sometimes it's also about getting to Milo's gigs and going to events that Gigi should have attended but stuck Evie with.

I realize this novel is supposed to be a romance but I didn't feel any chemistry between Evie and Milo. If anything, I'd rather have read more about Gigi's career and her on again off again marriage to her co-star. She was interesting. Evie was just too young and too busy feeling entitled to be interesting.

Three stars
