LoveReading View on The Missing Husband

Would Jo's husband David really walk out on her – leaving no message – no trace of his whereabouts. She's pregnant and although their relationship had rocked when she told him, they loved each other – so how could he do it. Amanda Brooke's twisting thriller is an ideal summer read. Enough twists and turns to keep you dizzy as you follow Jo's search for her missing husband, a read that keeps the surprises coming, a good old-fashioned page-turner. ~ Sue Baker
