From the Publisher’s site:

Her psychic gift drove away the man she loved— and years later has drawn him back to her…As a teenager, Taige Branch hated her psychic gift. No one could understand—except for Cullen Morgan, the boy who stole her heart. He did his best to accept her, until his mother was brutally murdered—and he couldn’t forgive Taige for not preventing it.

Now a widowed father, Cullen Morgan has never forgotten Taige. But what brings her back into his life is another tragedy. His beloved little girl has been kidnapped, and Taige is his only hope of finding her. Working together against the clock, Cullen and Taige can’t help but wonder whether—if they find his daughter in time—it isn’t too late for the overpowering love that still burns between them…

 

 

 

My Review:

The Missing is tragically beautiful from page one until the end.  Shiloh pulled me into another one of her novels and I couldn’t put it down; The Missing is just that good.  I had to know what happened.  Bravo Ms. Walker for yet another wonderful story.

 

Shiloh writes with such emotions.  She knows how to break your heart and have you in tears.  She takes rough situations that most writers wouldn’t touch and turns them around, making you feel so strongly for her characters you just want to be there for them.  You feel like you are a part of their story and need to know more.  Shiloh put me through an emotional ringer.  If I wasn’t crying sad tears I was crying happy ones. 

 

If you are looking for a light read, The Missing is not for you.  BUT…if you enjoy a story with grit, determination and true love thrown in, The Missing is for you.

 

Shiloh’s characters are tortured, but strong.  Take Taige, she has been through so much, more than even the blurb can begin to describe.  Cullen starts off as a great anchor for Taige, but in the end she is his everything.  These two were meant for each other.  They need each other.  It is shown through this lovely tale Shiloh has woven together.

 

I can’t wait to see where Shiloh takes me next.
