Product description

Product Description

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 . . .

I was blown away by this, Brisbane-based author Kylie Kaden’s second novel. After reading her debut novel, Losing Kate, last year (my review here), I didn’t think she could get any better. Boy was I in for a surprise! As most of you that follow my blog know, I’ve never really enjoyed novels from the first-person perspective but, thankfully, our Aussie authors are showing me that they can get this point of view right and I’ve begun to embrace this manner of narrative with its sense of immediacy and intimacy.

In Missing You, I was taken on a suspenseful and alluring journey into the lives of Aisha and Ryan along with their high-needs son Eli and thoroughly enjoyed her exploration of human complexity and darkness.

When Aisha met Ryan at Uni, it was instant love, consummated by a mind-blowing kiss. Seven years later, even though Ryan didn’t want the classic suburban life with one point five children (or however much it is these days), they are married with one son, four-year old Eli, who is on the spectrum – and life has changed for them.

Ryan, in a management position feels that Aisha, a lawyer, is no longer the girl he met and Aisha feels much the same, preferring to see to the needs of their son first and foremost. After an argument that sees Ryan fleeing their home and Aisha seeking the comfort of her family, she goes missing after receiving a telephone call and telling her father that she is going to see a friend in need. When she doesn’t return home, the family is catapulted into turmoil – this is not like Aisha at all – she would never leave her son!

Kylie ratchets up the suspense when the police discover Aisha’s car with blood in it and her family begin to fear the worst. However, it is the events that follow that will have your stomach churning.

"At what point did this become my fate? Did I ever control it? And if I'd chosen differently, would all the good parts dissolve along with the bad? Even if this is the end, I have no regrets. For giving into that magnetic pull we had, despite wanting different things....I didn't think it was possible to love another human more..."

Aisha and Ryan fell in love the moment they met, and were certain would make it work, despite the differences between them. Five years later, struggling with the reality of their compromises and the relentless demands of parenting their autistic spectrum son, they fight and Ryan walks away.
A day later, Aisha receives a late night phone call, and promising to return in an hour or so, leaves her son, Eli, in her father's care. Three days later Aisha has still not come home, Ryan can't be reached, and while the police seem inclined to dismiss Patrick's fears, he is certain something is wrong.

From the first page the reader is aware that wherever Aisha is, she is in trouble. The tension builds as the reader wonders why she is missing, has Aisha simply had enough, snapping under the strain, or is there a more sinister reason for her absence?

"I calmly wonder is this is how it feels to die: This strange lightness, drifting in zero gravity. I feel no pain, but I have no control. I command my brain to charge my limbs, to pry open my eyes, but it's no use."

Missing You unfolds through the perspectives of Aisha, Ryan and Patrick, shifting from the present, through the past, until the two timelines merge.

Over a period of seven days, Patrick worries about his missing daughter while caring for his grandson.

The first thing you must know: I loved Missing You so much I read it in a night.

I have to admit, the back cover blurb didn't jump out at me: Young couple meet, fall in love and get married—though he's a bit of a louse. Their son is autistic, putting a strain on their marriage. The hubby leaves. The wife then disappears one night leaving the child with her father.

I imagined protracted scenes about their great (albeit mismatched) romance, then a lot of medical stuff and overwhelm relating to their son and so forth before then diving into the 'has she run away or did someone make her disappear?' scenario. But it wasn't like that at all. Thank god for the unexpected!

Other than a quick teaser the book dives straight into it, and we're in the head of Patrick, who's been left with his four-year old grandson Eli.

The novel predominantly alternates between Patrick in the present; and Aisha and Ryan's relationship over a five-six year timespan. Through shared snippets we learn of their meeting, romance, marriage and pregnancy.

Interestingly I enjoyed being in Patrick's head and his time with Eli as much, or even more than, I enjoyed the unfolding story of Aisha and Ryan.

I felt the unveiling of the final mystery was a teensy bit anticlimactic (and frustratingly unfulfilling for this lover of closure!), however it's not a mystery / suspense which relies solely on a big 'reveal' at the end.

Kaden's structuring of the book—allowing us to learn a little at a time—is what kept me turning page after page.

Missing You is a fabulous second novel from Kaden and I cannot wait to see what she does next.

I’m participating in a blog tour in conjunction with the release of the novel, so you can <b>read my full review from 10 April 2015: </b>
