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 generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…
Since I can’t really tell you about this amazingly original story without giving away some super crucial and surprising details, this is just going to be a review filled with some heavy FANGIRL-ing moments. So please bare with me because once I am finished, you’ll all be jumping at the chance to one-click this one!
First off can I just say how awesome it would be if Amazon and Goodreads would allow us to rate a phenomenal story like Missing Grace with more than five stars. Its like come on get with the program, as a book lover (and reviewer) I sometimes come across stories like this one where I feel like a five star rating just isn’t enough. With that being said, I am giving this book a THOUSAND star rating because yes S.L. Scott truly deserves that high of a praise for writing this breathtakingly captivating story.
I must regrettably admit that this is the first book I’ve read from this author, but I have to say that I am glad that Missing Grace was the story that popped my S.L. Scott book “cherry” (haha – pun fully intended) because it is by far one of my top 2017 favorite reads! So I kinda wish that I counted the number of times that this book had me in tears and left me on the edge of my seat, but I couldn’t because I did not want to take my eyes off of my kindle for a single second. This extraordinary story literally captured my full attention and as much as I didn’t want to, I totally fell asleep mid-read (when your kindle smacks you in the face you know it’s time to go to bed, even when all you want to do is finish it).
Overall, this book will take you on a whirlwind of emotions along with some twists and turns. This is without a doubt one of those stories that will have you anticipating the end, while not wanting to let it go at the same time. S.L. Scott you are officially on my list of favorite authors and I cannot wait to see what you come up with next (and of course checking out some of your previous releases when I get a spare moment in my overwhelmingly hectic life)!
