Move on with your life, they said.
Forget her, they said.
But how could Ben Edwards forget the woman who was supposed to be his forever? When Grace Stevens disappeared—without a word, without a trace—she took half his soul with her.
Despite the heartbreak, Ben tried. He tried to take their advice by pursuing his career. He tried to find fulfillment in his work. He tried to find peace.
Grace had been the love of his life. Her fingerprints were on every surface of his existence. He had success and wealth. He had everything, except her.
Then fate stepped in one serendipitous night. The hope he’d held on to for three long, agonizing years appeared before him in the form of a picturesque beauty.
Was she real, or an apparition returning to haunt him? He wasn’t sure, but he wouldn’t stop until he found his missing love. Every minute mattered, and he wouldn’t waste a second chance.
I’m a die hard SL Scott fan so when I got the chance to early read Missing Grace I was thrilled. I’ll admit I’m a little obsessed with “missing” stories and all the mystery that goes with them. Intrigued I dove in and can proudly say this is another fine contribution from Scott. We are immediately dropped into the drama and Ben Edwards heartache as he reflects on the last time he saw Grace.
The story is well paced and we pick up with Ben three years later. From here on out we are taken through the despair that envelops Ben’s life as he struggles to come to terms with the loss of the love of his life. While the big development in the plot is a bit predictable, Scott keeps it interesting as the mystery is what happened to Grace unfolds. The story is told from multiple points of view which I always enjoy if done well – and it is. It’s also told through past and present as things are pieced together.
The drama is high and heartbreaking as two people find a second chance in each other and learn to love forward. This is a great mystery romance that will make you wonder just how far people go to get what they want. It’s a quick read as you’ll want to see Ben get to the bottom of things and get his life back on track. 4 Stars and recommendation.
