A Ripple Effect Romance Novella
Lydia was supposed to have an adventurous and exciting summer. Instead she’s done nothing more than read and eat takeout. Now it’s time to go home, and what does she have to show for it? A big fat nothing. Unless, of course, her trip to the airport somehow turns into something more than just a flight home.
Blake feels like he’s been sent on a wild goose chase. While work is piling up back in Denver, he’s on the other side of the country, hunting for some mysterious box that his grandfather left him. Well, no more. Nothing inside that box could possibly be more important than the opportunity to make it as the youngest partner at his firm. So he’s going home, and that’s that. But that’s before he discovers his flight has been cancelled.
When these two strangers meet at the airport, they make a split-second decision to search for the box together. Maybe with both of them on the hunt, Lydia can have her adventure and Blake can find the box. And maybe, if they’re lucky, they’ll even find some romance.

Lost & Found is another clean romance novella in this lovely series of books with amazing authors. This story is cute and the kind that you hear of more and more as travel becomes more mainstream. People meeting in airports or on the plane and finding out they had just met the person they would one day marry or be best friends with.
I love this story because it gives a sense of hope. Especially if you are single, because it shows you that you really never know something is going to happen until it does. Most people don’t board a plane in hopes of finding their soul mate, its just one of those things that God has preplanned for our lives and I love how this book shows us that coincidence can be a great thing if we allow it into our otherwise structured life.
I recommend everyone read this series. It’s just too sweet to pass up!
About the Author
A little about me.
I am the oldest of eleven children, born to parents who were either saints or crazy, maybe both. They thought we were all capable of being professional athletes or broadway stars. They weren’t right, of course, but they did help us have self-confidence.
I have the greatest family. A patient husband who makes me laugh and four clever, good-looking children–two boys and two girls. I adore them all.
Through the years I’ve been a student, a teacher, a secretary, a clothing designer and seamstress, a wedding cake maker, a crafter, a scrapbooker, a cook, a homework helper (until they pass me in math, somewhere around the third grade), and a fan at my children’s sporting events. Before I die, I’d either like to be a great housekeeper or have the money to hire a maid.
I’ve been writing since Jr. High, when I was hired by a county newspaper to do a Happenings column about our little town of about 300 people. I got paid by the word so every week I called every family in town and got their news. It wasn’t high-brow journalism but the column earned me a little spending money.
On our way to Aspen, CO, my sister, my two oldest kids and I were hit head-on by a drunk driver in a stolen car. Although we suffered serious injuries, we all survived.
Candy isn’t worth eating unless it’s chocolate. (See’s are the best.)
When I was seven years old, I fell and broke my arm . . . on a dirtclod.
When I was a child, my family bought and renovated an old school-house. It was a wonderful place to live in spite of the bats that flew over our heads at night.
I’ve been told that my naturally curly hair doesn’t get longer, it gets bigger.
I’ve always liked game shows. Everything from Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy to the reality-style game shows like Amazing Race, Survivor, and Top Chef.
Nothing makes me happier than being with family and friends eating good food, sharing good conversation and a few laughs. That might be why Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
