Losing Kate

Synopsis

This mesmerising debut is part love story, part mystery, telling the captivating story of two lovers torn apart by tragedy and the secrets they kept of one devastating night.I'm the most authentic version of myself when I'm around Jack. We've known each other since we were kids, and our relationship was always one of mudpies and mocking.Then everything changed.Beautiful Kate, my best friend, disappeared on a moonlit beach after Jack dumped her for me. Jack was a suspect and, sure of his innocence, I lied to protect him. I know Jack didn't kill her. Our betrayal did.Thirteen years later, I am thirty, childless and single, attempting to renovate my life rescuing a rundown worker's cottage. All is as it should be in my safe little world – until Jack buys the vacant lot behind my house… and the feelings that we buried all those years ago – the guilt, the love and the pain - resurface.We can't keep running away from the past – and to move forward we have to know what really happened to Kate. "I’m on board the Kylie Kaden fanclub and highly recommend all readers to high tail out and get yourself a copy of this book. Australian author and setting. Very proud fellow Aussie."  Australian Romance Readers Association"A rich, evocative read that kept me riveted to the end . . . A stunning debut."  Helene Young"A tale that explores mystery, friendship and love, written in a beautiful and flowing style."  Gold Coast Bulletin"From the first few pages, I was absolutely hooked. For anyone searching for the next can’t-put-down, recommend-to-all-your-friends book, look no further than Losing Kate.”  My Child Magazine Australia “An absorbing contemporary story of secrets, betrayal, love and redemption… a gripping novel of suspense, drama and romance. An impressive debut, I really enjoyed Losing Kate.”  Book’d Out“If you like your mysteries and sexual tension sultry and well crafted, Losing Kate is a book you should read.”  Samstillreading“Kylie Kaden has rightfully gained a place on my bookshelf with this knock-out debut interweaving love and jealousy, loss and redemption, while also exploring those carefree, hazy, lazy summer days of our childhood. Five out of five.”  Book Muster Down Under
