Book Review And Preview: Missing You By Kylie Kaden

This is a book review and preview of Missing You by Kylie Kaden that is due to be published by Random House Australia on 1 April 2015.

Kylie Kaden was raised in Queensland and now lives in Brisbane with her husband and three young sons. This is Kylie's second novel and she also writes a regular column in My Child magazine.

This is the story told in the voice of three characters - Aisha, Ryan and Patrick, Aisha's Dad. It tells the story of the couple Aisha and Ryan and their relationship as it grows from a young passionate romance to being married and parents for a child with high needs.

When both Aisha and Ryan go missing and leave their son in the care of their grandfather Patrick, the story unfolds chapter by chapter from the start of their relationship to where they are today, and leads you on this fast paced journey to discover where they are and why they've gone missing.

I really liked the way the book was written and seeing the different perspectives of the characters, I especially liked Ryan and being inside his head he is a passionate, happy, soul and sounds like a bit of a spunk! I was really interested in the chapters told by the grandfather as he got to know his grandson with Aspergers.

If I'm honest I struggled with the ending, I felt it was a bit unrealistic that Aisha and Ryan wouldn't want to speak the whole truth of what happened when they were missing, their lack of honesty with each other on this didn't sit with the way the rest of the story was told.

But regardless of that, I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down, I sat under the patio last weekend from morning until afternoon completely entranced and indulged myself in reading this from cover to cover in just one day.

I recommend this book to suspense and thriller enthusiasts who like a bit of romance thrown in.

I give this book 4 stars out of  5

Jarrah Jungle's Star Rating:
1 Bad - I'd rather eat brussel sprouts topped with anchovies than read this again
2 Not Good - I'd rather watch paint dry than read this again
3 Ok - I'm sitting on the fence - its not great but not terrible either
4 Good - I'd pass up the last tim tam for this read
5 Great - I'd pass up a date with Johnny Depp for this read
