My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What She Lost and Found by M. L. Garcia is a four star novel. I really enjoyed digging into the life of Daniela. At first, it is a big secret about what happened to Daniela before she started college. Some of the information that comes out and in the amount of detail it is in, could be triggering for some readers. Please be advised of this. When the situations surrounding Daniela’s trauma emerges, we begin to understand why she acts the way she does and surrounds herself with very few people. She changed her major to make her life not as out in the open. She doesn’t even know how she might be able to move on or heal from the tragedies. Maybe finding someone to fill her love life will lead her to healing. But she isn’t sure she can open herself up to love.

WHAT SHE LOST AND FOUND by M.L. Garcia is a book I went into blind. I didn’t look at the cover or know what the story was about.

From the very beginning of the story, I was invested in the female protagonist and her journey. What a journey it is.

The story is told mainly in present time in a single POV. There is quite a lot going on and at times it was so over the top that I rolled my eyes.

I did enjoy the friendships that developed throughout the story. The honesty of several of the characters is refreshing and the fact that it is not overly sexual means I could recommend it to my younger cousins as a cautionary tale.

This story is amazing. It send you on such a rollercoaster of emotions.

Daniela is a young woman with a troubled past. Its her story about how her past impacts her present and the twists and turns she takes.

While reading this book i have laughed, I have sobbed and i have felt such happiness it was as if it was happening to me.

The writing is amazing at building the story and making you feel the emotions of the characters. The books also takes some extremely delicate subjects and presents them in a respectful way giving the reader an insight into that experience

What She Lost and Found by M.L Garcia was a story that was hard to read at times only due to the subject matter. Ms. Garcia did a good job writing about a horrible and traumatic subject. This is one of the things about the book that actually left me without words. There is just no way to describe the agony Daniela dealt with for those years.

Daniela, a Senior at The University of Texas at Austin (Hook’em) hasn’t really lived her life until now. She slowly comes out of her shell and acts like someone her age inspite of all of the pain from her past.

So much happened in this book, most of it was great but there are also some very sad, tragic moments too. I loved seeing Daniela discover who she is and to find her happily ever after.

What She Lost and Found by M.L. Garcia is a very emotional story. Daniela has had her life torn apart and now she has to try to fight through it.

Daniela has experienced trauma that no one should ever have to deal with. She thinks that starting over in a new city and getting a fresh start may help. However, she realizes her past is holding her back. She doesn’t get close to people, she doesn’t trust anyone, especially men, and she doesn’t feel safe.

Due to some scenes being depicted fairly detailed, this book may not be suitable for some readers but the author does a good job balancing the “dark” parts of the book with more cheerful, light parts as well. I truly couldn’t put this book down. My heart ached for Daniela but I was glad to see her working through her issues and gaining meaningful relationships in her life. I absolutely recommend this book.

This is my second book by this author and I loved it as much as I did the first.

The storyline was unique and this author has a way of hooking you at page 1 and not letting go even after the last page. Daniela’s story was heartbreaking and watching her close off and live her life trying to deal with her past was something that was written in a way I actually was feeling all the emotions that she dealt with on a daily basis, which gave me the understanding of where she was at in her life.

Walking with her on this journey and meeting new people and trying to find a way to trust again was just one of the reasons this is such a beautiful story. I found myself seeing both sides of some of her predicament and I wanted to crawl through my kindle a few times so that I could scream at her and nudge her in certain directions. I was so very proud of her though as things started happening and the story started really unfolding, the strength she had gained along the way kept her from crawling back into the dark, which is what I was afraid would happen. She still made some decisions that ticked me off, but somehow this author wrote from inside of Daniela’s head making it all make sense.

I loved almost all of the characters in this story, and even the ones I didn’t, I loved disliking them.

I love this authors writing style, I love how she can keep my interest and thought about the story every minute even when I had to do things in my real life like adulting 🙂 I will read anything this author writes and can’t wait for more, I loved loved loved the extended epilogues as well.

Awesome story!

What She Lost and Found by M.L. Garcia is an emotional journey that is both heartbreaking and heartwarming. It is a story where my emotions were all over the place as I meandered along this journey. There are many characters and a lot going on with this story but it is easy to follow along and the story is well written. There are a lot of twist and turns and a lot of mystery as to what is really going on in the lives of these young people. I did find myself frustrated a lot of times with the main character Daniela but at other times I wanted to wrap her up in cotton wool.

Daniela has had to adapt her life just to survive. She has survived one of the most tragic and horrific situations in her life only to find out two days later it only gets worse. She now has a stalker, one who is hell bent on getting her and doesn’t care who gets in their way. When the secrets and lies are finally unraveled she can finally move forward with her life and the one person who has always loved her.

What She Lost and Found was a great 5 star read.

Daniela had everything going for her, she and her best friend were in college having a great time. Until a couple of tragic nights happen that send everything spiraling out of control for Daniela.

We jump ahead to Dani at a different college. She is struggling with trusting others, especially men. She has a set schedule for work and school that she follows exactly. When a hot guy comes into the coffee shop where she works, he causes her to feel things she hasn’t felt in a very long time. She ends up growing very close to Nathan, so close that she sees him as a best friend but he wants more. Then she meets Alex, which throws even more of a wrench into things.

We learn even more about Alex and Nathan. Nathan had me at hello, I really loved him and Dani would frustrate me with the choices she would make. Alex was ok but not my first choice. We get even more of a twist when someone starts to stalk Dani, bringing up feelings from the past. My emotions were all over the place with the twist and turns. The secondary characters were great, I loved Bridget. M.L. Garcia has done a great job of pulling me right in with her writing. I loved this book and I can’t wait to read more from her.
