Missing You is a tantalising love story and a seductive suspense novel: 'Our lives were built around the strength of a kiss between strangers. Yet seven years on, look where it led us . . .'
When Aisha met Ryan she fell hard for his good looks and easy charm. Why worry that he didn't want children or a 9 to 5 job? Nothing and no one would come between them. But with the birth of their high-needs son, Eli, their extraordinary love is shackled into an ordinary life, their passion blunted by responsibility. Until Ryan can't take it anymore.
Then, following a mysterious phone call late one night, Aisha leaves four-year-old Eli in the care of her elderly father Patrick - and doesn't come back.
As Patrick struggles with the grandson he barely knows or understands, his frustration with his missing daughter and absent son-in-law quickly turns to fear. Particularly when blood is found in Aisha's abandoned car . . .

Comments about Missing You:
I was really looking forward to reading the latest offering by Brisbane writer Kylie Kaden and I was not disappointed.
Told through the experiences of three main characters this book is well-written, engaging (I read it in one night) and a definite page turner.
Having grow up in Brisbane the local feel added an extra dimension but don't worry if you're not familiar with the area - the writer's descriptive style will fill in any gaps for you.
At first I thought the style of jumping back and forth from one character to another, from one time to another would be confusing but it's not - it completely works for the telling of this fantastic story.
Kylie treats the underlying theme of Autism in an respectful way that helps you to really understand how raising a special needs child affects each person differently.
If you're looking for a great Easter break read then get a copy now.
