Welcome to the Aliso Creek Novella series
Liz, Gemma, Arie, Jess, and Drew have been best friends since creating “the Five” at Aliso Creek High School. But that was over ten years ago, and each is still trying to find that perfect someone... if perfect is even possible.
Arie, at the top of her career as VP of an established real estate company, discovers that her success has led to a less-than-successful dating life. But she may have just met the ideal man in work-a-holic film producer, Dustin Jacobs. Seeing each other once a week, or even once a month, is no big deal since they are both ambitious… until Arie realizes she wants much, much more.
As always with Heather's book, I was immediately taken into the story in Lost then Found. Arie is an instantly likable character. I also enjoyed that we were able to get to know Valentina a bit in this book, as well. Valentina is an ex-girlfriend of Drew's that I have been curious about. I really like the novellas in this series and I have become a huge fan of short stories. Arie has a lot happen to her in this "short" story and she handles herself well. Dustin is a high-powered producer who seems taken with her from the start. Their relationship hits a few snags at the beginning, and one at the end that I didn't see coming, but enjoyed. Each of these novellas are unique and are fun, fast reads. They do not need to be read in order, either.
4 out of 5 stars. Heather is the author of many fabulous books and short stories. Read more about her awesomeness here. The last Aliso Creek novella, One Chance, comes out June 1st, 2013.
