Three Days Missing by Kimberly Belle
Ok! Let’s get caught back up on reviewing some recent reads that I loved! 😁
Three Days Missing was a spectacular roller coaster of a read that I could not put down!
Following the three days after Kat's son Ethan has gone missing from a school camping trip, this story unwinds at rapid fire pace, with twists coming at you left and right. 🔥
I loved, more than anything else, the fact that this story felt rooted in a very real place of what a response for a missing child would look like, and more specifically, how absolutely stuck a parent would be in panic, terror and inability to do anything more than wait. There is something remarkably satisfying in reading a story where the responses of the characters resonate in reality - in this case, the fact that while Kat was panicked and desperate to find her son, there was very little for her to actually physically DO except stay out from under the police search and not get herself in the way. This to me, is far more interesting to read than a story where a parent of a missing child suddenly develops FBI level abilities to track and save their own kid, outsmarting the villain and the cops in the process.
That is all to say that @kimberlysbellewrites wonderfully human characters - even her most devious and dark characters have redeeming human traits to them, that let you understand why they might have done what they have done.
Overall this is an absolute must read for those who love a good whodunit mystery that will keep you on your toes late into the night.
