Janie Johnson's two families appear to have made peace. But then Janie's father in Connecticut suffers a sudden stroke, which leaves her mother reeling. Janie must step in to manage family finances and support her mother emotionally. While handling her father's business matters, Janie discovers an undeniable fact that could destroy both of her beloved families. And she alone must decide what to do.

At the end of The Voice on the Radio Reeve’s lawyer sister Lizzie divulges that Hannah died five years ago.  So really, I’d like to know who is receiving these checks.  Anyway, why wouldn’t Reeve just tell Janie this and save them all the trouble.  I know why, because a) Janie wouldn’t listen and b) because after his fuck up last year wanted to cozy into her good side again.  Because of this I continued to hear Stupid, Stupid Stupid circulate in my head.  Stephan, did have an annoying girlfriend who together with her retired FBI daddy couldn’t get  enough of the Janie sideshow.  But this was the book’s only redeeming factor.  As cliche as it sounds, What Janie Found does wrap up all ends nicely with both families becoming one, but at the end of the day, I could have gone without this installment.
