Book Review: Giselle Green: Finding You

Finding You

Author: Giselle Green
Title: Finding You 
Genre: Contemporary Fiction, Chick Lit, Women's Fiction, Fiction, Women's, Contemporary.

Where I got this book: my sister bought it me off amazon as l had the first book little miracles and l said l needed the this book to complete the storyline so she  surprised  me with the money to buy it. 

I would tell people that you should step outside your comfort zone with books because it is good to add more authors and genres to your reading portfolio even if you do not read books like this. I normally read books of this genre but l also stepped outside my comfort zone with authors and genres l am so glad l did because l have read so many great books and come across some great authors.

This book has 410 pages.

I would also tell people to have the first book little miracles so you can read the full story not just half.

I highly recommend this book to anybody.

Synopsis: Julia and Charlie are ecstatic to be reunited with their stolen child, Haydn. A year after he was snatched from a beach in Spain during a family holiday. They had feared that he would never be found alive. Now the couple are eager for their lives to return to normal – but something is very wrong. Haydn is still in many ways a 'lost' child. He seems to have been badly affected by the abduction, making it impossible for the family to simple pick up the pieces and move on. In their efforts to unravel exactly what happened to their son and to find a cure, Julia and Charlie clash as to the best way forward. As their own insecurities surface, Their relationship comes under threat – a situation not helped by the appearance of a former lover who is only too happy to rock the boat. As dark secrets are uncovered, the couple's love for each other is tested to its very limits, and they begin to doubt that they will ever be able to help their troubled little boy... Until, as last, They stumble across an unexpected truth. A truth that might be the only thing left that could save their family. They try to found out what is wrong with their little miracle but he is a precious little boy who is loved by all his family. Julia thought Haydn was missing the woman who had Haydn for a year. Illusion helps Julia with Haydn with him being a fussy eater and him being a hard child to get to sleep through the night and not liking contact with people. They think Haydn has autism but they had Haydn seen by two different doctors, one doctor wanted to send Haydn away but Julia did not want that for her son and Charlie was stuck with the right choice for their son. But when his dad passes away Charlie changed his mind not to send Haydn away like he was sent away. Charlie's dad told Charlie to look after his heart and the family was reunited. Both Julia and Charlie wanted what was best for their son and that meant not spending Haydn away and him being around his family and surrounded by love and his favorite elephant teddy. Julia and Charlie finally got married on New Year's eve two years after Haydn got kidnapped and announced they are having another baby in July.

Review: I really liked the first book and really wanted to read the follow on to little miracles and so happy to have read both books and it is a really happy ending and they was reunited with their stolen child which l was really happy to read. They do not want to send Haydn away and they finally find out what is wrong with him and they work together on getting Haydn sorted out and illusion helped Julia with getting Haydn to eat and glad he  got his favorite elephant teddy back and it was a book l really got in to l could not put it down once l started to read it. I love little miracles and finding you, I like Giselle green books. Julia bought Haydn a sandpit but Charlie thought it would bring back memories of him being kidnapped but he was not pinning for illusion he had autism and a mother asked Charlie if Haydn had autism and Charlie said no and the woman told Charlie some of the things that her son did and he did not like contact with people and he was a fussy eater and Charlie said Haydn had all the same symptoms as her son. I was happy to read that they did not send Haydn away when he needed his parents more then ever. I was sad to read that Charlie's dad and grandmother and mother passed away. I was glad Charlie and Julia got married and was going to have another baby. I wish they was another book of this storyline so l could read what happened as Haydn got older and he become a big brother. I can not put in to words how great the storyline and book was l would tell people to read it for themselves to know how great it is. I wish l could rate this book more then five stars because it is worth more then five stars.

About The Author: I was born in Chiswick in 1960. When I was 7, the family moved to Gibraltar where in the summer it got so hot we had ‘half-days’ at school. I was one of those rare creatures who loved school but there were beaches to go to. I wasn’t complaining.  Gibraltar is near the tip of North Africa. In the winter it still gets cold though, so like everyone else we watched telly.As a kid, I loved Star Trek and Kung Fu (valiant-but-arrogant Kirk vs Valiant-but-humble Kwai Chang Caine). I wrote fan fiction, putting the crew of The Enterprise through such humorous exploits it made me fall right off my chair. I wrote time slip tales about kids who traveled back to Ancient Egypt. I wrote about a dragon whose best friend was a toad called Groadhop. I wrote and wrote and sent manuscripts off to publishers and – even at 11 – got encouraging feedback and wrote some more.I read voraciously. The best gift I ever got as a kid was my camera. Those days, you had to wait to the end of the roll to develop the photos. You had to be patient and trust. You had to learn the art of delayed gratification. All good qualities for a some-day novelist to develop.At fourteen, I met my soul-mate who I married at eighteen and we’re still together. I appreciate the good people in my life. I am loyal to those who matter. I am a Scorpio. I am interested in astrology and how everything we say and do, says something about what we are, and what we might become. If you ask me what I love (family aside): I love being out in the sunshine, listening to birds singing; I love being by the sea and places where there is a big sky – especially the Med.; I love atmospheric places like castles or walks that lead to old forgotten meadows. I love it when seeds I plant, come up; when birds in the garden visit my bird-feeder. I love being around young people and kids and I am lucky enough to have had six of my own. I love books and films and people that make me feel/think/laugh. I love that I don’t have to commute anywhere to do my job and I can set out my own work-space and I have the freedom to come and go as I like. I am also very happy getting feedback from readers who’ve stayed up till the  wee, small hours to finish one of my books – so if you are one of those, please stop by here some time.Now, that’s enough about me, I have some fictional characters calling!

About the book: I love the cover and font and l love the front cover because it has a beautiful beach,blue sky and a beautiful little boy on it. 

Star Rating: 5 Out Of 5 Stars
