Book Description:

What if your life wasn’t exactly as you thought it was? What if there were secrets you kept—from yourself?

Becca Campbell has no idea her world is about to be turned upside down when she and Grayson return to New Hampshire.

Pieces start flying into place, answering the questions of the puzzle she calls her life. Things finally add up—it all makes sense. All that was lost is now found.

But will she be able to move forward, knowing the truth?


My Book Review:

Just when I thought that author Jacquelyn Ayres couldn't twist my emotions into any more knots after reading Goodbye Caution, the first book in The Lost & Found Series, she goes above and beyond what I expected in the second book, Goodbye Secrets!

In the second installment of the series, we catch up with Becca Campbell and her two suitors, bad boy Grayson James and the boy next door Ray McNeil. Oh what a tangled web we weave when all kinds of secrets come to the surface in this intense and emotional love triangle. Strap yourself in tight because the author once again takes the reader on one hell of a bumpy roller coaster ride, no one is safe from experiencing the full gamut of emotions!

If you haven't read the first book in the series STOP right now and go get that book and read it! I can't stress enough that this is NOT a stand alone read! Okay, back to my abbreviated review (I promised the author that I wouldn't divulge any spoilers) ... this is going to be so hard ... *face palm*.

In Goodbye Caution we met Becca, Grayson and Ray:

Becca Campbell is a war widow (her husband was abusive) who is raising a ten year old daughter and running a B&B in New England. She meets Grayson James, who is from England, when he comes to visit his Aunt Hazel, a housekeeper at the B&B. There is an instant attraction between Becca and Grayson ... holy hotness ... oh my goodness ... but their tumultuous relationship has its issues and ups & downs, which sends Becca reaching out for the comforting arms of Ray McNeil, the guy next door who has always wanted her. Caught in the middle of a love triangle, Becca had to say goodbye to caution and choose which guy would win her heart! But alas, the reader was left wondering who would she choose!

Now in Goodbye Secrets, the love triangle heats up with a lot more drama and hidden secrets coming to the surface ... lives are going to be turned upside down ...  and once again the reader is left wondering who will win Becca's heart!

With a cast of complex characters who are realistic, flawed and easy to relate to, the author weaves a great mixture of emotion, humor, drama, and sexiness that easily draws the reader back into the characters' intense and passionate world. The love triangle is interwoven with more personal issues and steamy romance, add in unexpected twist and turns that will keep you captivated and in suspense, with a mind blowing cliffhanger conclusion that once again leaves the reader wanting more while impatiently waiting for the outcome in the third book, Goodbye Uncertainty, that will be published in April 2014. Goodbye Secrets will simply leave you breathless ... *sigh*


About The Author

Author Jacquelyn Ayres

I am a Domestic Engineer (born and raised in NJ) whose sole responsibility is to guide three young impressionable kids into becoming phenomenal adults. This challenging, yet rewarding work requires a lot of love (coffee), patience (wine) and determination (periodic exorcisms). I work all of this magic in the beautiful state of New Hampshire.

Before becoming a Domestic Goddess (not really), I spent over a decade working in the medical field where I wore more hats than the Queen.

I have had a love for the written word and the great escape it provides since I was a little girl. When I wasn't reading about people and the places they lived, I was creating my own characters and adventures. Finally, I have been putting a pen to paper allowing my characters to come to life. When I don't have a pen and paper in hand,you can often find me laughing at the conversations my characters are having in my head.
