Review #99: I Hope You Find Me- Trish Marie Dawson

Summary: Life for Riley ends when her young children die in her arms…victims of a global viral outbreak that claims the lives of everyone she’s ever known. Left to fend for herself with only a dog as her companion, she sets out on a journey to find others, leaving notes everywhere she goes…hoping that one day someone will come looking for her. When Riley meets the handsome yet mysterious Connor on the streets of Downtown San Diego, they form a bond unlike either has experienced before. When the things that go bump in the night turn out to be more than nightmares, the trio sets off for the mountains in search of an isolated resort where they can hunker down, away from the ominous shadows of the dead city streets. The peace and tranquility of the woods isn’t enough to keep the darkness away for long though and soon Riley and Connor are forced to accept that the World and the few people left alive in it will never be the same. The shadows of their past may haunt them forever…threatening to destroy what little dreams they have left of a future unless they fight to stay in the light and never lose their hope.

Author: Trish Marie Dawson
Pages: 251
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed this book considering I left my YA safe zone to venture into this book. I can honestly say that sometimes I was really freaked out in this book. I was 100% sure that zombies were going to make an appearance, until they didn't lol. I Hope You Find Me defiantly touched on an array of emotions for me such as sadness, anger, happiness and like I mentioned before fear. I found it to be an easy read because the content was amazing. 

I love Riley! She is so strong to have gone through all that she has and not wanted to give up completely. Sometimes I did find her a little slutty (kissing everyone and the dog haha) but ill get over it. She redeemed herself by making the right decision in the end. Connor is my favourite make character, I can just picture his sexy Irish accents when he talks. Plus, he is protective over Riley and you can tel he genuinely cares for her. But my new favourite character is Kris. She is so why and quiet and I really want to know her story. 
This is a great start to what I know will be an awesome series. I can't wait to find out what's in store for these characters. I would recommend this book to post- apocalyptic lovers.

About the Author: 
Trish was born and mostly raised in San Diego, California where she lives now with her family and pets. She's been writing short stories and poetry since high school after an obsession with Stephen King's 'The Stand'. After over fifteen years of crazy dreams and an overactive imagination, Trish began her first book 'I Hope You Find Me' in December of 2011. When Trish isn't writing, she's homeschooling her amazing daughter and mildly autistic son, reading whatever she can get her hands on, or enjoying the Southern California sun. As a strict Vegetarian, Trish holds a special place in her heart for animal rights and dashes into the backyard weekly to rescue lizards and mice from her mini-lab/cocker spaniel mixed dog, Zoey...who is always getting into some sort of trouble.
