Release day: Missing You

1 April 2015

Today is the official release of Missing You by Kylie Kaden (paperback, Random House). Here’s the blurb:

Missing You Cover‘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.

Now, 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 …

Missing You is a tantalising love story and a seductive suspense novel from the author of Losing Kate.

Kylie dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Missing You tells the tale of an extraordinary love shackled in an ordinary life. Parts are heart-warming—as you watch Aisha and Ryan fall in love—others heart-wrenching, as they face the realities of marriage, family conflict, parenthood. Their love never seems to waver, until, in the dark of night, Aisha leaves their four-year-old son with her dad, and doesn’t come back. So, as with Losing Kate, it has a mystery element hovering in the wing, but is a love story at heart. For me, romantic love isn’t about fleeting gestures. It’s about carving out a place in your life for someone long term; considering their needs, working as a team to make life together richer and happier. I wanted the story to be firmly grounded in reality, and be honest about the struggles life throws at us—it’s not a book for those who want to escape to a wondrous land of perfection, but I think it conveys a message that true love can withstand the realities of life, and grow stronger for the experience.

You can find out more about this book at Kylie’s website or buy it from Booktopia.
