This time it’s personal in Vera Kelly: Lost and Found.
Vera’s girlfriend Max is summoned back to her California family home. Max’s parents are divorcing, and a shady occultist may be stealing some of their ample funds. It’s 1971 and even in California being in love with another woman makes Max unpopular with her family. Then, Max disappears leaving Vera with the difficult job of finding her in the strange California environment.
Vera Kelly: Lost and Found is less a thriller or a mystery but rather a LGBT historical fiction tale. It is an interesting slice of life. However, I didn’t like it as much as the last book in the series, Vera Kelly is Not a Mystery. 3 stars.
Thanks to Tin House and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
