Missing: A totally addictive psychological thriller with a shocking twist
About this deal
The premise of this book was good, it just failed to grab me. I would read more of this Author in the future.
Missing by K.L. Slater | Goodreads
Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture and KL Slater for an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. The main character, Josie, is a mom of a 7 year old girl and is recently divorced. She owns her own business, a bakery in town, and works very hard to keep the business growing. Her ex-husband is lax with his visitation of their daughter, Ivy, due to his gambling addiction. When Josie was a teenager, her younger brother Jimmy went missing and was found dead.a few days later. Jimmy was the same age that Ivy is now. The murder was charged to Josie's neighbor, Samuel Barlow. Samuel served 25 years in prison for the murder and was released 5 years shy of his 30 year term. I’m usually really intrigued and invested when I start a KL Slater book but I’m disappointed with this one.Yet another fabulous title to add to my Bookouture beauties! I have recently come to associate Bookouture with a love of books and probably the most consistent crime thriller collection out there today. That is why each time I get to read an ARC of one of their killer thrillers, I just can't say no! Clear the calendar.... Here comes K.L. Slater's new title, THE MISTAKE! Rose visits her elderly neighbour on a regular basis, but one time she discovers her brothers red blanket in his house unexpectedly. I've tried to be a good person all my life. I made one mistake, many years ago, but it wasn't my fault. Truly, I would never wish to harm another person.
