When Susan is left orphaned, she begins a harrowing journey through the care system. Left with both mental and physical scars, Susan approaches adulthood with a self-destructive impulse. However, there is hope in the figure of her childhood friend, Max; the first boy she ever kissed.
Now a grown woman, Susan returns to her childhood home of Winchelsea, where she hopes she will find the answer to the gap in her heart that she’s carried with her since she left. With Max by her side, she attempts to find the path her life should have taken, to build a home, to heal old wounds, and to finally create a family that will stop the terrible feeling of something missing.
But Max has a secret, one that risks destroying all hope of a happy ever after, unless they can find a way to heal one another.
His touch was so gentle yet Susan felt it burning deep under her skin. As he caressed her stomach, she couldn’t stop herself wanting him. He had completely taken over her body. The only thing she could see was the pure blue sparkle in his eyes; it was like staring at the ocean. She needed to give herself into him. She ran her hands over his shoulders and down his back, pulling him close. There was no more pain and no sorrow. He set her free.
B & N:
I loved this story. It is a beautiful, heart wrenching story of love and survival. Susan is 10 years old and is all alone, she has no family. The one friend she had, Max, tries to save her, but he can’t. After Susan is taken into custody by the state and sent to foster homes, her childhood is hell. But, she has the will to survive. As an adult she goes back to her hometown, her happy place, which was her grandmother’s home where she lived until her grandmother died. There she reunites with Max, he never forgot her and always hoped to be with her again. Their love story begins and her healing continues. Max is a wonderful man, but he also has his ugly past that shows up to create havoc just when they thought they had surpassed all obstacles. There are some very sad and hard moments, but they work through it. In the end, love claims all and shows that family isn’t always blood. Truly enjoyed reading and I am glad to have had the opportunity. I look forward to the continuation of this series.
I’ve always had a passion for reading but over the last several years it has become an obsession, a few months ago I decided to put fingers to keys to keyboard (or pen to paper!) and write Something Missing,a story I’ve had hidden away in the back of my mind for a long time.
Hazel lives in the small town of Rishton in Lancashire. England, with her husband, three children, two cats, dog, rabbit and lizard. She fills her days dashing between school runs, pets and housework and at night she comes to life either writing or watching her favorite program ‘Supernatural’ (yes she is Supernatural obsessed)
Her road to writing started with a love for paranormal romance novels, and after finding a passion for tragic romance she set out on the mission to share her own story. After long nights writing and a lot of ‘Supernatural’ episodes she is finally ready to share ‘Something Missing’. Hazel loves nothing better than sitting with a cup of tea, a chocolate biscuit and a good book.
