4.5 Stars A wonderful job from new author Hazel Robinson on her debut novel The story of Max and Susan was a very turbulent one These two had many ups and downs since they reunited all these years later, and had to overcome such a large amount of obstacles which stood in the way of their happiness Their relationship progressed very quickly which almost made it seem as if they had never been apart in the first place At times it did feel like it was all happening too fast, but in the end you reali [...]

This is an emotional romance book by Hazel Robinson The book was done by being narrated by the author with dialogue between the characters I found this novel very emotional and the characters had been through so much at a very young age The main lady in this book is Susan and her parents had died and her grandmother passed away when she was 10 years old She didn t have any other family so she was forced to go into foster care The family that Susan ended up living with most of her life were abusi [...]

Something Missing By Hazel RobinsonI received this book in exchange for an honest review I was intrigued by just the title of the story and was excited to read it The story is about the problems people face in their past and what it takes to overcome them Susan has had many things in her life happen to her, that she did not have control over She had some fond memories, but they were buried deep, due to such a horrific past She moves back home and runs into her friend that has had a positive impa [...]
Susan and Max last saw each other just after the funeral of her grandmother, when she was 10 She is immediately thrown into a horrible foster care situation Next the story picks up right as she s grown and going back to her grandmother s, having forgotten Max even existed Once she makes it home Max and her are quickly reunited as adults and begin a new phase of their relationship, which does seem to move rather quickly You will fall for these characters, they seem very real and very flawed which [...]
Hazel Robinson is a very talented writer I just finished Something Missing and fell in love with her style and plot twists That being said, in my opinion, she could slow down and allow the story to develop before moving on.I enjoyed getting to know Susan and Max and would love the opportunity to get better acquainted with Polly I have a feeling I will be seeing them all again based on the delicious cliffhanger this book ended on Had this book been split into two and some of the events deeply ex [...]
4.5 starsHazel Robinson s debut novel is well written, has likeable characters you can identify with and struggles that will break your heart Susan and Max were separated when she was ten years old, tossed into foster care after the death of her parents.Grown and back in her grandmothers house she and Max are reintroduced to each other as adults where they try to pick up where they left off years ago.Their relationship does seem to pick up a little quickly but once you finish the story you under [...]
I was gifted this book for an honest reviewI loved this book because in a way I can relate to this story I could feel the emotions in Susan but not so much of Max.Max seemed a mystery Sometimes I felt sorry for him I can understand his back and forth feelings for Susan.Thank you for this awesome story of finding just the right love.I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a good love story.
It was pretty goodr a romance I really shouldn t say anything about this book because it s definitely not my genre I will say that I really liked the characters Sometimes the plot seemed a LITTLE predictable, but it also had some good twists that I did NOT expect So even though it didn t convert me into a romance fan, I think it was a pretty good sample of the genre for a non romance reader I d recommend it to fans of the genre If I may , it is really sweet.
A story of a childhood love torn away to be found again as adults With emotional scars and mystery surrounding them it is a romance that will have you in tears heart broken for a girl, Susan, that lost everything at the tender age of ten and a boy, Max, that never forgot the girl he promised to love and protect I had red puffy eyes from crying and loss of sleep after this one I can t recommend it enough.
I was given the honor of reading and reviewing for this awesome author I can t say anything bad about this book It was amazing how much one person can go through and still be a functioning person And still have the capacity to love anyone or anything.

Review also on my blog reviewedthebook 2014I m a sucker for a sweet and simple romance story and Something Missing felt like that kind of book Susan was reconnecting with Max, the first boy she d ever kissed but of course, things weren t going to be that straightforward Susan was still damaged from the abuse she suffered growing up and Max was being secretive too It all sounded like the makings of a nice romance film to me.The issue I always have with watching romance films is that they move too [...]

Reviewed by Janice Owen, Reviewer for book lover bookblogA Review of Something Missing by Hazel RobinsonPromising Storyline 3 starsThis is the first book that I have had the opportunity to read by Ms Robinson First, I know she is from the UK, so some of the wording will be different than what I am used to here in the US, but there was a LOT of grammatical errors and an unclear delineation of breaks in time All of these added up to a hard read, but I really did love the characters of Susan, Max a [...]

Something Missing was a good read It was not what I excepted For some reason I was expecting a quick fluffy read, Something Missing is not a fluffy read, It s full of emotion It takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.I was drawn right from the beginning It starts with Susan having become and orphan and is being taken away form her best friend Max Years later and after a tough childhood, Susan ends up going back to the house she grew up in She runs into Max The connection between them is [...]
This was the first book that i have read by this author and I enjoyed it Only one criticism I have is that I wanted of the story It kind of jumped from bits of the story too quickly and I wanted to get a deeper picture The end of the book was filled with emotion and the character appeal was stronger, but all in all I enjoyed the story Susan and Max were childhood friends until Susan s gran died and she got taken into care This is when Susan s nightmare started Physical and mental abuse left her [...]
