Skip-tracer Renee Stratford-Knight's life is becoming stable again. Eighteen months prior, the murder of her sister and the soon-to-follow collapse of her marriage left her reeling. She made it through those dark days with the help of family, embracing faith and starting her own skip-tracing business, New Beginnings, which specializes in relocating abused women. Now, her ex-husband -- and former business partner -- Jonas Knight shows up asking about her most vulnerable client.
Jonas knows his ex-wife helped embezzler Gina Howard elude the authorities and plans to bring the young woman to justice. When Renee is threatened, Jonas grows suspicious of his client's reason for finding his niece. In order to uncover the secrets their clients hold, Jonas and Renee must struggle through distrust and the pain of their pasts to work together to save the life of a teenage girl -- and their own.
Lost Then Found by Christina Freeburn is the first book in the inspirational romantic suspense series New Beginnings. Renee and her ex-husband Jonas have issues in their relationship and unresolved problems that surface throughout the story. They are both stubborn and have a difficult time forgiving and letting themselves move forward and work together. They have to work together in order to save Glory, a young girl who is being targeted by her uncle for stealing a check worth half a million dollars.
There was definitely a lot of suspense in the story. I enjoyed the character and family dynamics in this one. It presented an interesting backdrop and continued to play a role in how all the characters interacted with each other. This is an inspirational romantic suspense book, so there is a lot of focus on faith and definitely no inappropriate romance happening. The characters are also on a journey of faith as well, and we see that develop throughout the story.
Overall, I think the author did a nice job of building suspense and creating a believable story. While I don’t usually read inspirational books, it was nice to read and feel the characters’ struggles and joys with their faith. I liked the characters and the setting. I would be interested in reading more in this series.
