The Missing by C.L. Taylor
Today is my stop on the Blog Tour for The Missing by C.L. Taylor. I was thrilled to be asked by Helena Sheffield from Avon Books to take part along with some other fab book bloggers. You can find out who else is taking part in this fabulous Blog Tour at the end of my review.
You love your family. They make you feel safe. You trust them. Or do you…?
When fifteen-year-old Billy Wilkinson goes missing in the middle of the night, his mother, Claire Wilkinson, blames herself but she's not the only one. There isn't a single member of Billy's family that doesn't feel guilty. But the Wilkinson’s are so used to keeping secrets from each another and after an appeal for information six months later goes horribly wrong, that the truth begins to surface. But Claire is sure of two things, she believes that Billy is still alive and that her friends and family had nothing to do with his disappearance. A mother's instinct can never wrong or can it???
I didn't just like it, I LOVED it and it definitely didn't disappoint. I would definitely recommend this book and I CAN'T recommend this book enough. I had it read in just a few days as I couldn't put it down. There were some great twists and turns too which I loved and I didn't know who to trust at times. It's a very face paced story and I even had to slow down reading it as I didn't want it to end. There were parts in the book I could feel my heart thumping so it's definitely not for the fainthearted. I actually found myself thinking about the ending upto a few days after I'd turned the last page, it wasn't what I'd expected at all, I think I was gobsmacked.
This is C.L. Taylor's third novel, her first been The Accident which I haven't read just yet but I will definitely be picking it up really soon, her second book was the Lie which I really enjoyed too and I'm really looking forward to C.L. Taylor's next book already (no pressure).
The Accident, The Lie and The Missing are all available on Kindle and from all good bookstores. At the time of this review been published The Accident and The Lie are only £2.99 and The Missing is only 99p on kindle so grab it while you can, you won't be disappointed so don't say I never told you so!!!
