Every once in a while a book is recommended to me through Goodreads or Kindle and while I usually enjoy the books sometimes I’m skeptical. Three Days Missing was one of the books I kept seeing pop up that was recommended to me but I didn’t buy it, not yet. I put it on my Kindle wishlist and moved on. So when there was a sale on the book I got that lovely notification and finally clicked “Buy”.
Once I started reading I was so mad at myself for waiting so long. This story is about how two mothers, Kat and Stef, are pulled into each other’s worlds as their kids are on a field trip together and a child is reported missing. The question is–whose child is missing? Then, as the adults in this town continually screw up the hunt for the missing kid (I’m talking everyone screws it up, police, teachers, parents) the fear goes up a notch and you really wonder as a reader who will make it out of this scenario alive. I was on the edge of my seat as I read this, searching for answers as frantically as Kat and Stef were and I was so attached to Ethan, although I hadn’t had much time with him, that I literally could not sleep until I found out the truth.
Also, let me just say it takes an amazing author to make me despise characters so much that I call one a very impolite word, rather loudly, in the middle of the night. The amount of foul language I muttered as I read this book (mostly directed at one character in particular) was astounding and even my Kindle notes show a much more colorful side of my language.
As a way of introducing me to Kimberly Belle the suggestion couldn’t have been handled better. While looking at her catalog of other works I can see many that would appeal to me but I wonder if any would have gripped me quite like this story.
If you’re looking for an edge-of-your-seat thriller, this is it.
