The Case Of The Missing Boyfriend was my first big kindle hit, reaching number #1 in Amazon's kindle chart, and remaining in the top ten for over six weeks. It was the 27th best selling ebook in the UK for the whole of 2011.

If, like me, you read and enjoyed The Half Life of Hannah and wondered what happened next after that fateful summer holiday in France, then this is a must-read. We follow Hannah and Cliff through the aftermath of that holiday and once again I was totally hooked and immersed in their world. The story is narrated alternately by Hannah and Cliff, so we get both sides of the story. I particularly loved Hannah's chapters. I loved the way that, even if she was behaving like a bitch then she was still honest with herself as to why she was behaving that way. She has a very natural voice, is very believable and likeable. She is the kind of woman I would be friends with and I really felt that I was sitting listening to someone talking to me rather than just reading words on a page. I felt also that I came to understand Cliff more. I can't say that I found him to be 100% truthful with himself 100% of the time, but I felt kinder to him than I did at the end of the first book. He is confused for a lot of this read, but I felt he was a warmer, more generous person and less remote than in the first book.

Once again the book is character led, and these are characters who feel real, whose lives you really get involved in. During Half Life of Hannah I felt like the holidaymaker in the next French villa watching over the fence, in Other Halves I am most definitely the next door neighbour, watching what is going on. This is a really enjoyable read that concludes the story nicely which in some ways is a shame, because I could really read more and more of Hannah.

When you enjoy an authors work there is always that slight fear that, when you start a new book of theirs, you might not enjoy it as much as previous ones. As yet this has never been the case with Nick's books.

Other Halves was a joy to read from the opening words to a slightly teary (for me as well as the characters sometimes) end. As with all good books I was torn between the desire to read it all as fast as possible so that I could see what happened and yet take my time and make it last... the former won out in the end as I just couldn't resist the "one more chapter" urge.

This book is a wonderful sequel to The Half Life of Hannah and I think you benefit from having read that book first, although I'm sure it would be an enjoyable read without trying the first book why miss out on that part of this great story?

I think one of the strengths of Other Halves is how the narration is split between the two main characters - giving a balanced view of each makes you sympathise with them equally whereas if it was just from one POV the other character could have ended up coming off badly - after all they do both make some major errors in judgement along the way.

A great book with laughter and tears and love... my only real complaint would be that I WANT MORE!!!

I am a big fan of Nick Alexander and in my opinion his books never disappoint. This book is no different and already I am long awaiting the next release!

'Other Halves' follows on from the book 'The Half Life of Hannah' which was one of my favourite books of the year. The book continues exactly where I wanted it to giving further insight into the lives of Cliff and Hannah. Hannah & Cliff's marriage is no more, as readers of 'The Half Life of Hannah' would expect, and Hannah finds herself torn between creating a new life for herself and trying to find the right balance to keep everyone happy. Cliff finds himself suffering with a lack of confidence about who he is and his sexuality and both characters give an interesting and creative read while being believable all the way through.

Overall this book has been an absolute delight to read so much so that I neglected my other half for an evening while I read through the whole e-book. I firmly recommend this book, whether you are a long standing fan of Nick Alexander books or just have your eye caught by seeing it on the bestsellers list, which is firmly where it belongs! I would strongly recommend reading 'The Half Life of Hannah' beforehand as it adds to just how interesting and enjoyable this read is.

5/5 from me, another very well deserved rating for Nick! A fantastic e-book that I couldn't put down and wouldn't have wanted to anyway.

Thank you to my lovely friend Janne at Black and White for kindly sending me an early review copy.

The narrative opens very well. For those who haven’t read The Half-Life Of Hannah, it catches you up and gives you pieces of information which readers discovered in the first book. For those who have read it, it was refreshing to recall what had happened. For me, that’s quite important in series. Especially if the publication dates are months apart.

I really wish I enjoyed these two books more but as a book blogger, I have to be one hundred per cent honest. They just didn’t grab me. I found that the dramatic elements were my favourite parts and they were the scenes I looked forward to the most. Nick is a fantastic author, but I’m not a lover of long winded sentences and that was a dislike for me in terms of the books.

Readers know that Cliff is a liar but in this narrative, Nick painted him as a sad, lonely puppy and I really did feel sorry for him. But I knew I was wrong to do so because there was nobody else to blame other than him. We’re given the chance to read from Hannah and Cliff’s viewpoint which was very interesting. There are two sides to every relationship. I like when authors show both sides.

The ending was quite emotional and I felt a little lump build up in my throat. At the end of the day, Hannah and Cliff needed to focus on their son despite their marriage falling apart. I genuinely did enjoy that part.

Just because I didn’t enjoy these two books as much as I had hoped, that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy them. Please understand that this is just my opinion and it’s nothing personal against Nick – we get on quite well :)
