Six months later, the family is a shadow of its former self: Melanie blames herself and is acting out and rebellious; Jane is obsessed with finding Max; and Kyle, a lawyer, struggles to cope with his own grief—and a persistent suspicion that one of his cases is connected to Max’s disappearance.With her family in turmoil and her marriage on the rocks, Jane thinks things can’t get any worse. Then when an affair and an unexpected pregnancy threaten to tear the Madisons’ lives apart, an anonymous caller leads to a break in the case. Can a second kidnapping bring their family back together?


    MISSING MAX by Karen Young is an Inspirational Suspense set in Modern Day New Orleans. It is a wonderful suspense with drama, mystery, and faith. It is heartbreaking but rewarding. When their baby is kidnapped the family instead of pulling together falls apart. The Older child blames herself,  decides to help put the family back together by getting pregnant and giving the baby to her parents to replace her baby brother. This story is well written with depth and detail. The characters are strong and charming. The secondary characters carry the story along. This is a great story, it shows how a family can recover from a tragedy if they keep their faith. I would highly recommend the book especially if you enjoy faith, suspense, drama and wonderful caring characters. A must read. A keeper.
