UNTIL I FIND YOU follows Rebecca, a young mother with a degenerative eye disease that has left her nearly completely blind. Following the death of her husband early in her pregnancy, Bec has been raising her baby boy all on her own. She has her routines down, not letting her lack of vision slow her down. She knows how many steps it is to the nursery upstairs and how far it is to the park. She has supportive friends and a grief group that help her manage, but she is an independent enough woman to do this all on her own.

Though she has never seen his face, Bec knows every contour of her son’s face, the sound of his voice and everything else about him. So when she goes to pick him up one day, she knows the baby boy is not her own. The problem is no one else is so sure and Bec finds herself facing obstacles that no sighted mother would face. And if the boy is not hers, where is her son and where did this child come from?

I really loved UNTIL I FIND YOU! Having a blind protagonist was such a different perspective in the thriller world and it added a unique twist on the genre. Bec has had a lot to deal with between her husband’s death and the loss of her sight, but she is a strong and fiercely confident woman who knows her own mind and won’t take no for an answer.

The mystery is an interesting one. Though Bec is convinced the baby is not her own, how was a switch made, where did this baby come from, and is her son okay? Knowing that her son is out there somewhere makes the time it takes to search for him critical. Supporting Bec are her close friends and an ex who step up to help her even when they aren’t entirely sure if she is right. The author managed to surprise me with some of the twists along the way!

UNTIL I FIND YOU is out on 8/11/2020 and I suggest you add it to your TBR! This was my first book by Rea Frey, but it absolutely won’t be my last!
