Shake-up + Review: Something Missing by Hazel Robinson




When Susan is left orphaned, she begins a harrowing journey through the care system. Left with both mental and physical scars, Susan approaches adulthood with a self-destructive impulse. However, there is hope in the figure of her childhood friend, Max; the first boy she ever kissed.


Now a grown woman, Susan returns to her childhood home of Winchelsea, where she hopes she will find the answer to the gap in her heart that she’s carried with her since she left. With Max by her side, she attempts to find the path her life should have taken, to build a home, to heal old wounds, and to finally create a family that will stop the terrible feeling of something missing.


But Max has a secret, one that risks destroying all hope of a happy ever after, unless they can find a way to heal one another.

Susan breathed in deeply; even now the emotions were raw. “A long time ago he was my best friend; we were inseparable. From the age of like, two, we never went anywhere without each other. When my grandmother died he protected me from the pain. But after the funeral they came to take me away. Max wanted me to run away with him but I said no. We were just children. There was no way that we could have made it on our own.”
4-Stars Review

It's good, a little on the emotional side. Something missing is a story about two people who are whole together but when they are apart they feel as if something is missing from their lives. They complete each other. And they belong with each other. It doesn't mean that they won't face hardships in life but it means that they can overcome anything as long as they believe in being together. I loved Max and Susan's heart-breaking-and heart-warming-at-the-same-time story.


P.S. I recieved a complimentary copy in exchange for honest review. I had read it before (didn't realised it until I started reading) but still enjoyed reading it again. :) 




Hazel lives in the small town of Rishton in Lancashire. England, with her husband, three children, two cats, dog, rabbit and lizard. She fills her days dashing between school runs, pets and housework and at night she comes to life either writing or watching her favorite program ‘Supernatural’ (yes she is Supernatural obsessed)

Her road to writing started with a love for paranormal romance novels, and after finding a passion for tragic romance she set out on the mission to share her own story. After long nights writing and a lot of ‘Supernatural’ episodes she is finally ready to share ‘Something Missing’. Hazel loves nothing better than sitting with a cup of tea, a chocolate biscuit and a good book.
Keep an eye out on her social media sites for more work coming 2015 including her Anthology!
