    1. The Missing Hours by Emma Kavanagh is a thriller read that is told from multiple points of view throughout the story. There is also bit of reports, mails etc between the chapters that pertain to what is going on in the story at any given time.The book starts off with a little girl at a playground who has wandered off from her mother and younger sibling but when she returns her mother is nowhere to be found. This opens up an investigation introducing one of the detectives in the story.Now after a [...]


    2. THE MISSING HOURS by Emma Kavanagh is a mystery novel dealing with a missing mother, Dr. Selena Cole, a widow and mother of two young girls, who disappears in a playground, leaving her daughters, 3-year-old Tara and seven-year-old Heather-ALONE! She just vanished in thin air!“The little one, Tara was on the swing. Mother was pushing her. Heather the seven-year-old, had gone down to the stream. When the girl came back, her mother was gone, sister was alone.”I have to admit, in the beginning o [...]


    3. I think the book started off really good with the older daughter Heather discovering her little sister Tara all alone and their mom has vanished. It was a thrilling and brilliant way to capture the reader's attention. What happened to Selena, did she just leave the children or was she taken? DC Leah Mackay is assigned the case and she has to deal with the little girl and Selena's sisters-in-law. Meanwhile, her brother DS Finn Hale is investigating the murder of a lawyer and it turns out that it' [...]


    4. So when an author you’ve admired from their very first book hits the sweet spot in the writing and storytelling stakes it is a real moment of reading joy, such as has just happened with Emma Kavanagh and “The Missing Hours”. I was a huge fan of the previous two novels but this was a pretty much one sitting completely immersed practically inhaled read that actually I’ve just put down. And had to write about straight away.I could just leave it at that but I like to talk so I won’t.The Mi [...]


    5. Its not my week this week. Yet another author I love and get so engrossed in her stories and I had a hard job keeping up. I thought it was my painkillers affecting my brain being whoozy until I read a few other peoples reviews.It took me half the book to really grow into this one. It was worth it in the end, but boy oh boy I had to plough. There were so many things in this material that really waffled on and didn't really need to be thereIS AUTHOR IS A FANTASTIC author, I look forward to each of [...]


    6. I've read all of Emma Kavanagh's books so was intrigued to read this one too.The book starts off really well and hooked me in pretty much straightaway. Selena Cole, a doctor, is on a playground near her home with her children playing. One moment all is well and the children are playing happily. Next it cuts to the mother going missing and then turning up again a few hours later with no idea what had happened in those missing hours. What plays out is a slow fed unfolding of a series of events lea [...]


    7. “We rarely know the people around us, only what they show us of themselves.”When Dr. Selena Cole mysteriously vanishes from a playground leaving her daughters stranded, DC Leah Mackay takes the case but struggles to find any clues to help solve it. Twenty hours later, Selena is found alive but has no memory of where she was or how she got back home.That same day, Leah’s brother, DS Finley Hale, is assigned the murder case of an associate who has been dumped unceremoniously on a mountain la [...]


    8. One minute Selena Cole is at the park with her daughters, the next she is gone. A neighbour finds the girls and takes them home before calling the police. Not too far away a body is discovered by the side of the road. For a town where nothing really happens this is a lot for one day.20 hours later Selena returns home but claims to have no memory of where she has been. The body is identified could there be a connection?This was a page turner that I read in 2 sittings this weekend. I loved the bro [...]


    9. First and foremost, a large thank you to NetGalley, Emma Kavanagh, UK Random House, and Century for providing me with a copy of this book, which allows me to provide you with this review.Kavanagh offers an interesting perspective in this mystery novel, pulling the reader in from the opening vignette. After the mysterious disappearance of Selena Cole from a park while out with her young daughters, the case is assigned to DC Leah Mackay, still working out the wrinkles of the position and processin [...]


    10. My thanks to Random House UK, Cornerstone for the opportunity to read and review The Missing Hours by Emma KavanaghDr Selena Cole goes missing one day from the playground she is in with her two young children. Twenty four hours later Selena reappears with no memory of her disappearance or of what happened in those twenty four hours.This was an interesting mystery and not the type that I was expecting. The mystery is told from multiple viewpoints and this worked very well. The characters were int [...]




    11. "You do not go looking for kidnap and ransom. It comes looking for you."Incredibly tense police procedural and complicated mystery involving a woman's disappearance and a man's murder -- that just may be connected. Dr. Selena Cole vanishes from the playground near her house, just leaving behind her young daughters. When she reappears over 20 hours later, she can't remember anything of the missing hours. Or is she lying?Defense solicitor Dominic Newell is found dead on the side of a mountain road [...]


    12. Brilliant!My View:Unique. Compelling. Surprising. This book has just so much going for it! A wonderfully engaging character driven narrative, multiple points of views adding depth and perspectives to the narrative and to the main characters. What great characters there were! Everyone had something to offer or something they were holding back, some little piece of themselves and the mystery they didn’t want to let go of or share that when revealed kept changing the direction of the plot or the [...]


    13. The Missing Hours was my first Emma Kavanagh read, and I’m not entirely sure what I think. For me, it was a case of up and down. I never really got into the story as much as I’d hoped to, yet at the same time I found it to be a decent read.The story is made up of two mysteries: a missing person who returns quickly and a murder. From the get-go it is obvious that the two crimes are related in some way, yet you are not sure how. Whilst I love interconnected crimes, I prefer it when it is less [...]


    14. This is a cracking thriller written from the POV of various characters. It is also unusual in that it features a brother and sister police officers working on separate cases discovering there are connections between the cases. They have a great relationship with each other.Psychologist Selena goes missing after taking her girls to a playground. Having lost her husband recently she is not in a good place. She returns a few hours later appearing to be suffering from amnesia. But is she? The police [...]


    15. This is a 2.5 rating for me.The first thing that drew me to this book was the eye-catching cover. When I read the blurb I thought it sounded fantastic. A mother vanishes, leaving her kids in a playground on their own. What would make a mother leave her kids? I was eager to find out and the story itself was interesting enough. However I felt there was too much information I didn’t need to know, and this stopped the flow of the story. It has got a 2.5 rating as the ending was a surprise. Despite [...]



    16. This was one of those books that I got to the end of and thought 'WHERE ARE THE REST OF THE PAGES?!' I honestly thought there was a misprint or something. The ending was just SO abrupt and didn't answer the thousand and one questions I still had. I have to admit I am one of those people who likes a nicely sewn up ending that leaves nothing to the imagination which is probably why I was so distraught by lack of tidy ending in this one! Up until the end it was all going particularly well with grea [...]


    17. 5 shiny stars. This book is a fine example how you can create unique, compelling characters and a breathtaking edge of your seat story, do something different and not get lost in it.I can't say much because I don't want to spoil anything but there are some points and aspects I want to highlight.First of all, this book is mostly told in the first person with multiple narrators. I confess I found it a bit overwhelming at first but as the narrative progressed it didn't stand in the way or bothered [...]


    18. Reviewed on snazzybooks The Missing Hours tells the story of missing person Selena Cole from various points of view, as detectives and her family try to work out what happened to her in the ‘missing hours’ when she disappeared.It soon becomes unclear whether Selena disappeared off her own accord or whether there were darker forces at place, and the Police’s investigations dig deeper into the murky world of hostage negotiations, which I found really interesting to read about! Though the rep [...]

    20. I would like to thank NetGalley, the Publisher and the Author for the free copy of this book.This was really unexpected!!!!Dr Selena Cole goes missing, after less than 24 hours she is back.Where did she go? What happened to her?? Is it real she doesn't remember anything or she is just lying?Well, this book was very interesting and captivating.The story is told from the point of view of different characters, with a collection of Dr Cole's cases, and as the story went on, i found myself in a very [...]


    21. Imagine staying in a playground your children then the next vanishing without a trace. Twenty hours later, you are found safe and well, but with no memory of where you have been?! this is what happens to Selena Cole. This story starts off so gripping and exciting the author certainly knows hows to get the readers attention. But then when Selena is found I felt like I was reading an episode of Eastenders with the whole story-line of she is lying or isn't she. It felt like to more soap opera going [...]


    22. Dr Selena Cole goes missing from the playground she was in with her children.Twenty four hours later she returns with no memory of what has occurred in the missing hours.This has a gripping storyline with believable characters of which I found hard to put down.I would like to thank Net Galley, Random House uk Cornerstone and the author Emma Kavanagh for my ARC in exchange for an honest review


    23. Really enjoyed this one. Not only did it introduce me to a world of Kidnap and Ransom, which I only had a vague idea existed, but it also introduces some innovations to the police procedural: a brother and sister team of detectives, who are therefore not suspicious of each other but supportive.


    24. I expected a tense, suspenseful story, but what I got instead was more of a drama-filled police procedural. It all had a bit of a soap opera feel, actually. The opening scene is written from seven-year-old Heather's perspective, as she realizes her mother is missing. This short scene sets up what feels like a powerful story to come. Heather doesn't have another narrating part in the story, at least not that I remember. Most of the narration alternates between the brother and sister cops, both wr [...]


    25. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed Emma Kavanagh's first two novels I have been impressed with her original take on crime fiction and the astute psychological insights and nuanced characters contained within. Having read the short story entitled Case 48: The Kidnapping of Isaiah Rae which introduced Dr Selena Cole, her husband, Ed and offered a glimpse into the high stakes world of kidnap and ransom negotiations, I was intrigued to see what new spin on these existing characters Kavanagh would pr [...]


    26. This is the first Emma Kavanagh book I've read and I'm pretty certain it won't be the last. A very unusual and gripping thriller which delves into the murky world of kidnapping for ransom. Sibling police officers Leah Mackay and Finlay Hale discover that the cases they are working on: the disappearance of a psychologist from her children's playground and the murder of a respected solicitor respectively, are linked to a company of hostage negotiators called the Cole Group.The book is well researc [...]


    27. This had such s unique writing style. Different characters & old case files helped unravel a mystery with a who dunit that I didn't see coming at all!
