Well, what can I say that I did not say two days a go in my review of the previous book in the series?

I can’t say Barbara has outdone herself again, or that it is an emotional rollercoaster. Even though they are both true for this story too.

This is the fourth book in the Lost & Found series. And is my favourite so far (I do hope we get to read Blairs and Mattias’ story).

Though I loved Inbetweeners, this one just has such a danger and thrilling suspense, that will keep you up all night reading.

What starts off as a break in gone wrong, leads its two main characters on different paths that eventually collide back together.

We start with a 15-year-old Tar, who break into a house that was supposed to be empty. When things go wrong Tar takes it upon himself to save Merrick before the house is burned down with him inside.

Their bond starts from there. Realising that there is an old book amongst the items Tar’s father took from Merrick’s home. Tar hides the book in Merrick’s bag, as a precaution in case his father tries to make him abandon Merrick.

After Tar’s father goes missing leaving Tar to look after 8-year-old Merrick who also happens to be deaf. They are brutally forced apart.

Some years later they accidently bump into each other in London, but their reconnection gets off to a frosty start.

Though they don’t know it yet, both their lives are in danger as well as the fate of the world and Fairyland.

Barbara treats us to a thrilling and often suspenseful ride, in this good vs evil mission, that involves betrayals, lies and sinister plans. Merrick and Tar must rebuild their relationship, which develops into romance, even if Tar is hard set against it at first. They soon learn to trust and work together. But can they save themselves and the world as we know it.

The cast is so strong, we have sunshine characters, mouthy characters, grim and gloomy characters, and the silent characters. Each with their unique talents and personalities. Several of the supporting cast are from the previous books, such as Emmitt and Nix from Inbetweeners.

The story world is so well developed, especially the power of the book and Merrick’s magical bag. That can clean and iron your clothes, wow Barbara if you have any spare bags like Merrick’s I’d buy one for the laundry trick alone.

The story is well paced with Barbara’s unique humour and writing style, and yes expect your emotions to be twisted several times.

The amount of effort the characters must endure to keep each other and the world safe, is enough to make you sweat.

I especially like how Merrick shows Tar that he is worth being loved and happy. Until Merrick re-enters Tar’s life, he does not have a life beyond his job.

A fully fledged, well rounded paranormal romance thriller, with a hint of hot sex, cute moments, and a few laughs, as well as some very dark moments for poor Tar.


Barbara Elsborg lives in Kent in the South of England. She always wanted to be a spy, but having confessed to everyone without them even resorting to torture, she decided it was not for her. Volcanology scorched her feet. A morbid fear of sharks put paid to marine biology. So instead, she spent several years successfully selling cyanide.

After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband (who can now stop twisting her arm) she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop.

Her books feature quirky heroines and bad boys, and she hopes they are as much fun to read as they were to write.

Thirteen facts about me

1. I’m blonde, but after having spotted one grey hair - I now dye my locks with mixed results. I know I should read the packet but hey, what can go wrong? My nicknames – badger, skunk (purely the look!!), snowball and pinkie. Yes, that time it really did go wrong.

2. I hate milk. Can’t drink it, smell it or even look at it.

3. Writing. I really do love that. I started by making up episodes of TV series with me as the heroine. You name it, I’ve been in it. My range is from paranormal to suspense to contemporary to erotica but everything I write has a touch of romance and humor. Well, I think I’m funny. My family laugh at me all the time.

4. Former life – a sad cautionary tale. Started off as a government inspector – spying on people trying to cheat on their taxes. A short period as a media planner in an advertising agency. I fled that at dead of night. Several years selling cyanide – mainly to Sweden for the largest chemical company in the UK. Grand title of export manager. There was just me in the department. Had kids. Ughghghg. Then went to work as Government Inspector, spying on teachers. I was so popular, you can’t believe. Thank goodness I married well. (Married for money anyway)

5. No I didn’t, dear. Husband is financial whiz. Met at university when he was bringing a sack of potatoes to my flat mate. Romance is his middle name. Gifts to me include – supermarket vouchers, hedge trimmer and a hammer drill and reduced flowers past their wilt-by date. He spent most of his life in the aerospace industry making missiles. He’s atoning for his sins by doing my shopping.

6. Two children. Daughter a lawyer. Son has escaped to live in Texas. Enough said.

7. Books – I ADORE. I read at least one a day. I have thousands as I can’t stand to part with them. I read at lightning speed. 70-80 pages in 20 minutes. That’s fast? Right?

8. What do I do all day? Write. All day if I can. It’s my world and I love it. Start at 8.00 and finish late. Interspersed with journeys on the internet and satisfying needs of husband. No, not those sorts of needs. Really!! I was thinking of making coffee.

9. Worried about – possible visit from FBI. Research for one of my thrillers did involve some investigation into how a fetus would decay under a boat shed. Research into plastic handcuffs brought a deluge of porn. Well, that was my excuse and I’m sticking to it. I find I need to keep checking dubious sites. I might be addicted.

10. I’m very tall. 5’10 and a bit. I used to be very self-conscious about my height. Now I don’t care. I’m far more worried about other bits of me.

11. I won the prize at school for ‘Good Conduct and Example’ It was the worst day of my life. Well, one of them. I so want to be bad. Sigh.

12. I am incapable of telling right from left at crucial moments. Won’t be flying jets anytime soon.

I’m struggling now. I’m really not interesting.

13. Ohh, I was once kicked by a giraffe.

Phew, made it.
