If someone had asked me to describe this book by using 12 adjectives within its own title, this is how I would've described it...

Fabulous..Impressive..Nifty..Delightful..Intriguing..Nice..Gripping___ Likeable..Upbeat..Charismatic..Awesome..Superb

This debut romantic-comedy by Samantha Stroh Bailey is a wonderful read. I was totally engrossed by each and every written word. Jamie, the main character, is starting to re-evaluate her relationship with Derek; her boyfriend of 5 years. Derek has turned, from a fun loving, care free guy, to a complete and utter snob. And Jamie is feeling miserable. He doesn't like her family and he puts their lifestyle, and Jamie down at every given opportunity - to be honest, I don't know how she lasted so long with him, I would've pushed him over a cliff long before! Yes, Derek got under my skin.
Jamie works on a TV day time talk show as an associate producer and they're planning a broadcast on reuniting `long lost loves' This gets Jamie thinking about her long lost teenage love, Lucas. And, whilst she's researching for the show, she is also making it her mission to find Lucas too. Does she find him? Does she fall in love again? You'll find out. There are lots of loveable characters in this book and they're so real. I especially liked Andrew. I laughed my way through each chapter - in particular, chapter 21 - it just had me in stitches, it was so funny - it conjured up some great images for me!!
This is a brilliantly written book. Samantha has a terrific style of writing and she draws you in from the very first line. I highly recommended it! Finding Lucas is only one click away from your Kindle - go for it!! I would've rated this book 6 of those gold stars if it could've given me the option to do so! Thanks for a wonderful read Samantha Stroh Bailey!! I am so looking forward to reading your second book and eagerly await its release!!!

I cannot believe how many fantastic books I am reading lately - Finding Lucas is no exception!

Jaime leaves her long-term boyfriend and decides to find her teenage love Lucas. The search is not straightforward and presents itself as challenging (both physically and emotionally).

Finding Lucas is Samantha's debut novel (and what a debut this is!). I loved every page of the book. All characters are extremely well created and developed. By the end of the book, I had an exact picture in my head of what these characters could look like.

I really enjoyed Samantha's very descriptive writing style. She uses a lot of brackets to include further information. In my opinion this adds to making the story come alive - I loved it.

Jaime's character really grew on me throughout the whole book. She comes across as being such a passionate person! I really felt for her, when things didn't go as planned and her insecurities showed. In fact, all the characters in the book are amazingly well portrayed. Jaime's patchwork family (there is her gay mother and her partner, her sister and her father plus his new partner) are so endearing!! The "funniest" character for me was Derek's mother. Can people really be that deceiving and manipulative? I guess so - she certainly adds humour and laughter to the story!

The TV show for which Jamie is an associate producer, reminds me very much of "Jerry Springer" - I had to smirk (and cringe) several times whilst reading about the topics and candidates brought onto the show :-).

I can highly recommend this heart-felt, funny and entertaining read! I absolutely loved the ending (without giving too much away but Jamie's character development is amazing and inspiring).

Jamie knows that her relationship with Derek isn't working any more. In five years he's changed from a loving, carefree guy into an uptight, critical grouch. He's scornful of every aspect of Jamie's life, from her choice in clothes to her eccentric family to her job as associate producer on a daytime talk show. The show is planning an episode about reuniting people with their lost loves, which gets Jamie wondering whatever happened to her first love, Lucas. Will she find him? Will they still have that incredible connection?

What a delicious book. Each character - lead, supporting or incidental - is totally believable and thoroughly entertaining. Somehow the author brings each of them to life by giving them real dilemmas but also a quirk or something to make them an individual. For example, Sue, Jamie's one-time boss, has problems at home and a habit of mumbling so Jamie has to 'translate' her mumble to everyone else. (Sorry, I've killed the joke here, but the author nails it effortlessly.) And Hanna, Jamie's close friend, is drop-dead gorgeous but has her insecurities and foibles. I won't take you through all the other captivating characters we meet - the whole of Jamie's family, her friend Lucy, her new boss Andrew - but be assured that they are warm, lovely and engaging. In case you think this is too saccharine, there are the 'baddies' - the dreadful Derek, his equally dreadful mother, and Jamie's colleague, Eva - who add a little grit and a lot more comedy to the mix.

The unquestionable 'star of the show' is the lead character, Jamie. I took to her from the very start. She's warm-hearted, genuine, flawed and funny, and not supermodel perfect. She simply wants to love and be loved.
