The Other Side of Disappearing
Comforting & cathartic
Following the heroine’s journey to healing and stability, this novel was a quietly powerful read. The tender romance threaded through felt like a much-need... READ MORE


'Poignant, observant, tender, and deeply romantic. This book is everything' CHRISTINA LAUREN

From the acclaimed author of Georgie, All Along and Love Lettering, a pitch-perfect, radiantly transporting love story about an unexpected road trip, true crime obsessions, and hard won vulnerability . . .

Hairstylist Jess Greene has spent the last decade raising her younger half-sister, Tegan - and keeping a shocking secret. The boyfriend her reckless mother ran away with is actually an accomplished con man and subject of a wildly popular podcast, The Last Con of Lynton Baltimore.

Now thirty-one, Jess didn't bargain on Tegan eventually piecing together the connection for herself. But Tegan plans to do exactly what Jess has always feared - leave their safe, stable home to search for their mother - and she'll be accompanied by the prying podcast host and her watchful, handsome producer, Adam. Unwilling to let the sister she's spent so much of her life protecting go it alone, Jess reluctantly joins them.

Together, the four make their way across the country, unravelling the mystery of where the couple disappeared to and why. But soon Jess is discovering other things too. Like a renewed sense of vulnerability and curiosity, and a willingness to expand beyond the walls she's so carefully built. And in Adam, she finds an unexpected connection she didn't even know was missing, if only she can let go and let him in . . .

Romantic, tender, and vulnerable!
There’s something about Kate’s books that just makes me ache. Her slow burns and luscious romances always hit the spot. Also, the way she writes such achi... READ MORE
