The Saints of the Lost and Found by T.M. Causey is her first full-length dark mystery-suspense novel. Publisher: The RoadRunner Press, March 2016
Avery Broussard has the curse of seeing lost things (and make no mistake about it, it is a curse). Missing belongings and beloved pets, lost love and loved ones—she sees it all. Long ago, that curse destroyed her own chance at true love, causing her to flee her Louisiana home, vowing never to return. She’s kept that promise too, until a phone call from her estranged grifter father forces her hand. Her big brother is dying, and she may be his last remaining hope.
Avery wants nothing more than to rescue her brother, but doing so pulls her into a labyrinth of lies and deceit rooted in her own lost love and her family’s twisted history. It doesn’t help that a little girl has gone missing, and the abduction is tied to a killer Avery failed to help the FBI catch. With no time to spare, Avery realizes her curse might well be the only thing she can trust. Is it too much to hope that she might save her brother and find the missing girl before she becomes the killer’s next victim?
OMG! I love this book. This intense, riveting, suspenseful and frenetic paced drama gripped my soul and held my heart tightly woven in this tale that kept me mesmerized by the narrative of the author. From the beginning to the finale, I was absorbed in all aspects of this novel where anything that could happened, happened illustrating the strength of our heroine. The life and times are well explored in the pages of this well-written story and this is definitely one of the best darn books I’ve read this year.
