Mia Found is the third book in the Starting Fire series by Makenzie Smith but it can be read as a stand-alone novel. I haven’t read the previous books in the series and I don’t think it made a difference to my enjoyment of this book but I will probably go and read them so I can understand some of the secondary characters a little better. I enjoyed this story, I just found myself getting a little frustrated at times with the characters, especially Paul.
The story is about Mia and Paul. They meet when Mia is in her last year at college and they are clearly attracted to each other but Paul is wary. This is because firstly he is nursing a broken heart after his girlfriend leaves him for his brother and secondly he is 8 years older than Mia. They see each other at social events over the next 12 months before they eventually find themselves ready to give a relationship a go. This is where I got a little frustrated – one minute he wants her and the next he’s backing away. I think as the story progresses you can see that his holding back is purely for Mia’s sake and her feelings but it did get a little annoying at times.
I liked Mia – I thought she was a very mature character and nothing like some of the 22 year olds I’ve read about in other books. She dealt with Paul’s job and subsequent lifestyle well – I imagine it would have been pretty easy for the author to make Mia’s character whiny and complaining all the time but I’m so glad she didn’t.
I’m not sure I was that keen on the relationship between Mia and her roommate – I just didn’t get it, she was pretty nasty to Mia and she kind of just let her. I really wanted Mia to stand up for herself a little during these scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think Mia's story is my favorite. It's a beautiful tale 29 Sept. 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have followed Makenzie Smith's work from the beginning and while Wally still has my heart, I think Mia's story is my favorite.
It's a beautiful tale, full of wit and humor, but also heartbreak and bravery. What tips this story over the edge and makes it a lasting favorite is the strength Mia found within herself. Paul's heart is just as big as Mia's and throughout the book, I found myself smiling at him and the things he said.
Definite top 5 for 2016.

Overall I thought it was a well written story that shows you that for some people working all the hours you can to provide a luxurious lifestyle and being able to buy material things doesn’t always make you happy when you don’t have the love of your life to share it with.
I give Mia Found 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true culmination of talent and wit- 5 stars 29 Sept. 2016
By Daniel Lee Hotard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
'Mia Found' for me was the third novel of Makenzie Smith's I have had the pleasure of embarking on, and it is nothing more than a testament to her extreme natural talents as a novelist and writer that I owe the fact that I've read all of them. They are for sure good enough to leave you wanting the others.

That said, I would consider this one a true culmination of her vision and efforts to put something together that sits together movingly complete. One of the universal themes I believe this world deals with aplenty is the sort of tension between the creative life and the modern American working world. 'Mia Found' manages to paint a storyline which explores the way that the fledgling need to find one's artistic light meets head-on with the regimented manifest destiny of betterment through high end job workhorse mentality. It works truly, because she doesn't just pen one against the other. She gives you characters who both have an appreciatory spot somewhere along that spectrum, and thus gives a deep tale with realistic and profound characters, and believable struggle.

That said, that is surely not the only fertile ground explored in this funny, engaging, and romantic tale of two people both trying to find themselves while finding one another. There are many realistic human dynamics that interplay here, and Makenzie seems adept at tapping into how how people communicate subtley. You see why both her protagonist and her counterparts do what they do, and while she manages to pull your heart, she gives you elements of trial and misunderstanding that feel close, that the reader knows. There is a beautiful interlacing of the more stoic type personality against the more visceral, and the trappings of not enough said, the dealings of grief, the unfortunate interplays of baggage, the catty carelessness of unyieldy women-to-women dynamics, at which Makenzie is pretty darn fantastic.

All the while, the read maintains an air of sweet, supple, enjoyably propulsion that makes one's heart remember and want, understand and pull for, and flip with curiosity and intimacy. And speaking of, the wound-up wrought scenes are well worth the tension that builds them there and done with class, warmth, and brilliance.

A final note is that this is a standalone read. One does not have to have read the other two to dive into this one. These books simply contain characters who are supplementary to the other ones, so whichever you attack first, you'll simply want to dive into the others thereafter. Brilliant effort in the catalogue of an ongoing rare talent. Brava!
4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 Stars 2 Oct. 2016
By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Mia is young, a college senior hoping to make it in the art world after graduation. Paul is a late-20's successful accountant working his way through life following the end of a relationship. It takes a while for them to come together, but when they do it is so sweet, you can't help but cheer for them and hope they make it.

I got annoyed at both main characters, however, because she seemed incredibly immature (likely due to age and inexperience) and he was just oblivious and unable to go after what he wants (likely due to being burned in the past.) The FL storyline fell flat. I wanted there to be something else major going on with Paul, but he really was just an oblivious guy without much of a backbone.

Overall, I enjoyed this book and found it well-written and edited. This is my first Makenzie Smith book but I will definitely read more of her work!
