Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

So full of twists, great read! – Missing by K.L. Slater – #BooksOnTour

Today it is my turn to post as part of the blog tour for this chilling psychological thriller – read on to discover what I thought of this book which is set in many locations I know and some not that far from where I live!

My Review:

Jimmy runs to hide......Dashing inside ....
Someone closes the door......Jimmy dies ....

Years later, Jimmy's sister, Josie,  is making a fresh start.
She and her husband have divorced and grown apart
Now she's running her own café and bakery
The role of which is somewhat key!

The news that the boy's killer, Samuel, is to be set free
Has Josie Barlow anxious and in misery.
Samuel was the boy who lived next door
But Josie doesn't want to see him any more.

Get ready for a twisted psychological thriller
With a child kidnapped it is a total chiller.
There are insights from the present and before
Leaving you wondering and wanting to know more.

Who took this young child - and why?
Is it something Samuel would now try?
Why does his Mum think she can help find her now?
Should Josie learn to trust her somehow?

A page turner read that keeps you enthralled
Making you feel totally appalled
Hoping this time the child will soon be found 
Both safe and sound....

A story so full of unexpected twists
With shocking revelations not to be missed.
A family drama where so many are flawed
And so many lies can't be ignored!

For my complementary copy, I say thank you,
A fascinating read and this is my honest review.

Book Description:

I’ve known him all my life. I know he has taken my daughter. His mother says she can help me. But she’s the last person I can trust…

Samuel lived next door when we were children. We were inseparable. But he didn’t like sharing me with my adored little brother. And one terrible night, he got rid of my brother forever…

Now, years later, he’s free. And my daughter is missing.

I turn on my baby girl’s unicorn nightlight and bury my face in her pillow, my heart breaking. I know Samuel has her – he blames me for ruining his life, and even after all this time, he still doesn’t like to share.

As darkness falls, there’s a knock at my door and I open it to see Samuel’s mother. She says she can help me.

I know I can’t trust her, but I don’t have a choice. With each step I take, my fear grows stronger. Can she help me find my daughter? Or does she know something about what really happened all those years ago? Something that could stop me from saving my baby girl…
