Missing You by Harlan Coben

18114060

I have to say I have found another author I am really enjoying. This is the third book I have read by Harlan Coben and I loved it. This and Six Years were really impressive and I am so glad I tried to win these on Goodreads. Had I not seen them listed as a giveaway and read the description I don;t think I would have ever read these. I have a lot to catch up when it comes to Coben's books. I thing I will give his Myron Bolitar series. 

This book is about a woman who has lost the love of her life and now 18 years later she finds him on a dating site. Trying to find a way to rekindle this friendship at least some strange things begin to happen. Several woman have gone missing and their linked to the profile of Kat's ex boyfriend's profile. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book at first. The beginning of this book was very much a romance story or the plot to a Chick Flick. Not that there is anything wrong with Chick Flicks there are a few I enjoy but I was not expecting how this book opened up. 

I stuck with it and the story just kept getting deeper and darker and I was hooked. I may have struggled for the first few chapters to keep focused on the story but by the end of this book I couldn't stop talking about how much I loved this book. I am one of those readers who figures things out early on and then just sit back and see how things play out. It kind of takes the fun out of the big reveal at the end. Only 1 author has surprised me book after book but Coben surprised me with the ending of this one. I wont get into any details that might spoil this ending because it was a shocker that I for some reason didn't see coming when there were signs through out. 

One thing that I wasn't so sure about is that there are two different stories going on at the same time. I didn't know if one was to throw the reader off the trail on purpose and had no meaning, or if there was a larger picture that I was missing. This was a great story and I will give this 4.5 out of 5 stars and I will be rounding it up to 5. I am still blown away by how much I enjoyed this book and I look forward to catching up on all of Coben's books that I have missed.
