    1. It took me a little while to get into this book so many Czech words with unfamiliar accent marks but once I grew accustomed to those details, I couldn t put Lost and Found in Prague down This book has not one main character but three Dana, Dal, and Father Borelli each have distinct personal issues to work through as they work together mostly to solve the mystery of the missing Infant of Prague Their stories mingle together comfortably, and I found myself cheering each of them along on the person [...]


    2. I wanted to love it I tried to love it I failed to love it You would think that as a Prague lover and a mystery lover I would have adored this but alas, we just had a lukewarm first date then called it quits I won t discourage anyone from reading this it is nicely written with a LOT of rather cumbersome and long drawn out descriptions and I never warmed up to the characters but each reader has her or his own tastes and this might be something you would love I respect the book though I didn t fal [...]


    3. I happened upon this at the library when over in the mystery aisles, and thought it sounded promising, as it involved a character returning to Prague twenty years after an initial visit around the time of the Velvet Revolution Unfortunately, I found it disappointing.Previous commentators seem divided between those who loved it and those who found it thin stuff The book s fans find it rich and subtle, with three appealing protagonists, while those who didn t care for it complain that it s pedestr [...]


    4. I received this book as an ARC at the ALA Midwinter meeting.I always appreciate a sense of place in a book and this book has a wonderful sense of place The cast of characters includes a police detective, a Vatican official and an American tourist Unlike a Dan Brown thriller, no one is chased down by an evil mastermind planning the destruction of the planet, no one falls in love and no one performs superhuman feats This is a mystery with three detectives working toward the same goal with differen [...]


    5. LOST AND FOUND IN PRAGUE is a complex, multi layered mystery involving a politician s recent murder that has possible ties to a priceless holy relic and events that took place during the Velvet Revolution Dana, an American journalist, last visited Prague in 1989 during the protests of Communist rule Her cousin Caroline stayed in the city, but she has called Dana back to help investigate a suspicious death at Our Lady Victorious church She then gets pulled into an even bigger mystery involving th [...]


    6. Being that it was set in an exotic East European locale involving an American journalist, a Czech detective, and an Italian priest, I was expecting a lot from this mystery Unfortunately, I never really felt intrigued while reading it, and was totally disappointed with the ending and then even so with the epilogue Both of them easy, complete, and total copouts


    7. I did not like this book and I think it might just be me The issue I had with this book is that from the moment I started to read it, I could not get into it Nothing in the beginning captured me enough to engage me, and it ended up being of a hassle to read than a pleasure.Thanks Edelweiss1.5 stars.


    8. It was fun to read about walking around in Prague and learning about the Infant Jesus of Prague which I first came across while looking for vintage Japanese planters on ebay and never did see when I was in Prague


    9. I find it interesting how so many people can read the same book and come to different conclusions I do not understand how others did not like this one The book is well written with a plot that flows with little confusion I am a sucker for historical fiction I loved learning about the city of Prague and the velvet revolution The story involves 3 strong characters A priest, an American journalist and a Czech investigator The trio works together to solve the recent string of murders and the involve [...]


    10. This book was great It was a little slow in the beginning and I am always wary of books that go back and forth in time However this was definitely worth the read You really get to know the characters and feel for their struggles This book intricately weaves together 3 characters with different backgrounds and different ages into a moving story of forgiveness, change, and revolution I will definitely be reading by this author


    11. Finally I have a new author.This book held my attention throughout The characters were three dimensional and I could relate to their humanity The three main characters had actual weaknesses and pain I liked that the ending was atypical as well The author walked a fine line between religion and mysticism and carried it off.The locale was one I had visited and now revisted via the story.


    12. The premise of this novel had so much potential, but it ended up delivering a read with some flat and tedious characters and a plot that wrapped up too succinctly If less time was spent on repeating plot points in a brief novel, there may have been room for character development to make readers actually care about the protagonist, Dana Pierson, and the mystery she finds herself involved in on a visit to Prague.


    13. It is easily a 3.5 with a very interesting plot and a mystery that encompasses Prague, the Catholic Church, a murder I enjoyed the story being set in Prague and I certainly have found Kelly Jones books very readable She mixes a historic setting with some kind of mystery I do recommend this book.


    14. Wanted to like this one because I fell in love with Prague this summer This book didn t give me much of a feel of the atmosphere of the city, or much depth to its history, or even life in Prague today The story lines were forced to come together in the last few pages, but I didn t really care too much by then as I couldn t get invested in the characters.



    15. This book has many layers of mystery and intrigue Chief Investigator Damek of the Czech National Police Force is investigating the murder of a prominent politician Dana Pierson, an American reporter, is returning to Prague after a twenty year absence to visit her cousin Caroline, who is now Sister Agnes On the flight to Prague, she meets Father Borelli who has been called to Prague by his friend Father Ruffino Sister Agnes does not show up for her set appointment with Dana as there has been a de [...]


    16. Sexual Content Rating SubtleLanguage Profanity Slang Content Rating MildViolent Content Rating MinimalThis is an somewhat unusual historical novel or historical mystery because the storyline takes us to Prague in the recent history, but goes back to the Velvet Revolution when the Berlin wall fell The setting and time are not too distant that most of us still remember where we were when the wall came down, but as is often, not all problems are taken care of because the wall came down Some issues [...]


    17. I loved the premise of this book It takes place in Prague twenty years after the Velvet Revolution This is a place that I would love to one day visit and the setting immediately drew me in.The characters were great also Dal is a detective going through marriage struggles and find the murderer of a senator He has his own struggles that he s trying to deal with and balance out Dana is on vacation, and stumbles into a mystery concerning the Infant of Prague Her cousin wants her to help figure out w [...]


    18. Prague is the location in the setting of this novel The two time periods are the present and the Velvet Revolution with the fall of communism.Two cousins come to Prague together during the exciting time of student, artists, literary figures and other youth are celebrating Havel, a poet, is the new President of the democracy When it is time to return home one of the cousins decides to remain behind and joins a convent.Only later do we find out the reason for this sudden religious decision The cou [...]

    20. Enjoyed this than expected Got a general thumbs up from the book club I seemed to enjoy it the most enough to seek out another by the same author sometime which I don t think happens than twice a year with a monthly club We had mixed impressions of the ending and a good discussion about many of the characters The longest point of discussion was about the role of religion spirituality in the book for the author so than for the characters and there was quite a range of perspectives.


    21. This is an exciting mystery filled with some rich history My how our world has changed Dana is a person I would love to know she has her faults, yet fights for what her conscience believes is right Great dialogue that keeps the story flowing is just what you will find in the pages of Lost And Found In Prague.MatildaReviewer for Coffee Time Romance MoreOfficial Review Coffee Time Romance More


    22. Lost and Found in Prague was a very dynamic thriller I was lucky enough to win this book through First Reads Giveaway The three main characters Dana, Dal, and Giovanni all were well developed characters and by the end of the book you feel as if they are old friends I liked how the author switched back and forth between the three and their adventure in Prague Will recommend to friends and my book club.


    23. This book was not nearly as exciting as it could have been The tedious prose and lackluster description of such a unique city left me bored Several interesting characters and plot points were introduced, but Jones failed to develop any memorable dialogue or action And what was up with the conclusion I felt like I was reading the end of a different novel.


    24. I read this book because we plan to go to Prague next Fall It was not worth it The book was Schmaltzy A little too religious and goody goody for my taste It did not give me much local color for Prague which was my reason for picking it up Not much of a mystery Too many priests and nuns who were obviously not going to do a dirty deed Bah


    25. I really enjoyed this cast of characters The solving of the mystery kept me reading with anticipation until the end I loved the way all the intricate pieces fell together at the conclusion A well written, well researched, intriguing novel.


    26. Readers are giving this fewer stars than I would I wish we could give fractions , but I thought that the mystery deserves because it does a nice job developing the atmosphere of Prague and dealing with an unusual topic the disappearance of the Infant of Prague.


    27. It s a bit tedious to read, but the parts about Prague kept me going The character development and plot are a bit weak This is a novel where place wins out It was a book group selection, and we had a good discussion as most of us had been to Prague.


    28. Loved this book The story line was believable and the prose is crisp The descriptions of Prague brought back memories It was an easy read not because the sentences were simple but because they just flowed.


    29. This book was actually a gift And to be honest, I wasn t sure I would like it I was pleasantly surprised It has a multiple, well developed characters and a great plot It s complex enough to be interesting but no so much that it s a pain to follow Loved it
