Review: Just GONE by Renata W. Müller

Just GONE Just GONE by Renata W. Müller
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Written in traditional English phrasing, JUST GONE was a departure from anything I've read lately. The classic language used and how the author clearly articulated each sequence was, at first, difficult to follow. However, once I became familiar with this style of writing, it didn't take me long to become completely enamored with this tale of second chance romance.

Seven years ago, Hayden and Lana fell in love while away at university. Their relationship was near perfect until the day that Hayden was about to propose... and Lana disappeared without a trace. Now a chance meeting, in what seemed like fate, at a charity gala has put these two erstwhile lovers back on a collision course and Hayden demands answers. Answers that could break a broken man.

The plot was intricate and interesting while the characters were enjoyable. Lana was clever, confident, likable, kind, considerate and sensible. Hayden was intelligent, brooding, emotional yet practical, and sincere. Their love affair was consuming and it was a struggle to watch such a great man succumb to the negative qualities of his personality, such as jealousy and distrust. Yet, I still admired his honesty about it and really couldn't blame him. If I were to pinpoint one thing I didn't like about the plot, it would be Lana's reticence, how long it lasted, and how quick she was to give up when the going got tough.

I'm definitely interested in reading the second book, The Trouble with Love. I need to know if these two finally get their acts together or if they'll continue to waste their precious time as "just friends".
