Hey all! A Book Review today! All the Missing Pieces by Julianna Keyes and here is my honest opinion about this book!
Reese Carlisle hates her life.

Two years after her brother’s death, they still think she killed him.
One year later, she’s still hiding.
When the loneliness is too much, she seeks out strangers for one dark night, no questions asked. She makes up a name, puts on a disguise, and tries to forget.
One night she meets a new man. She tells him her name is Denise, she’s a dental assistant, and she loves dogs. He tells her she’s smart, she’s pretty, she’s funny. Things she hasn’t heard in too long.
Things that are too good to be true…

She’s been skydiving, bungee jumping andwhite water rafting, but nothing thrills–or terrifies–her as much as the blank page. She loves Chinese food, foreign languages, baseball andtelevision, though not necessarily in that order, and writes sizzlingstories with strong characters, plenty of conflict, and lots of makingup.
Thank You Netgalley and Julianna Keyes for giving me the unedited version of this book! This review is completely based on my honest opinion.
Reese Carlisle hates her life. Three years ago, her father was arrested for the biggest embezzlement in the history reportedly stealing 220 million dollars. The 200 million dollars have recovered the the 20 million is still missing. The media has tainted Reese’s image, labeling her as a liar, whore and after her brother’s death, murderer and many believe that Reese knew where that 20 million dollars was. But Reese live in a secluded life style, volunteering at the Food Bank and occasionally going on dates, under a different name.
Then on one of those dates, posing as Denise, she meets the stranger. Then comes the climax of the story.
The plot line actually intrigued me–it sounded so interesting. The first few chapters were a bit boring but then eventually it got interesting and I got so hooked into the story that I simply couldn’t put it down!!! The book became more like a cat and mouse chase, the stranger and Reese aka Denise, and we wonder why this stranger is so interested in Reese. The story is completely told from Reese’s perspective so as a reader we wonder if she is actually hiding something, or simply an innocent victim being in the wrong place at the wrong time or perhaps an unreliable character. I also liked the developing friendship between Reese and Rodney at the Food Bank–thought it was cute. There were twists towards the end of the book though to me, the ending was a bit predictable. There was an unexpected twist at the end and the family secrets that came to unravel towards the end of the book. The sex parts in the story is not that of a big deal–usually reading sex parts sometimes made me uncomfortable but in this case, it was OK. The author’s writing style was good, doing a great job of making the reader hooked into the story and join the wild ride with Reese.
This is the first book I have read from this author. Julianna Keyes is known for writing romantic novels and this is her first thriller/romantic book. I must say, she did a good job with this thriller, as I really enjoyed reading this book. Worth four stars!
