Now That I’ve Found You
Eighteen-year-old Evie Jones's entire career—or at least what's left of it—is at the mercy of her reclusive grandma, Gigi. Blacklisted from Hollywood for badmouthing a famous director, only a public appearance with America’s most beloved actress (one who’s been out of the limelight for nearly thirty years) can save Evie’s career. So, of course, the week Evie is meant to present her grandma with a Lifetime Achievement award, Gigi does the unthinkable: She disappears.
No warning, no note, and no forwarding address. Gigi is gone. With time running out and the comeback of a lifetime on the line, Evie enlists the help of the last person who saw her grandmother: Miles, the cute boy who delivers Gigi's groceries.
Along the way, romance blossoms, adventure abounds, and Evie makes some new discoveries about why her grandmother has been hiding from the spotlight.
