“The connection between Frankie and Jack is electric. The more that I read of Losing Kate, the harder it was to believe that this is Kylie’s debut release.

A great story to acquaint yourself with and one I have no hesitation in recommending.” Mick Gillies
“What a great story! A debut from Aussie author Kylie Kaden, I feel confident in saying she is here to stay. The mystery was well done with an authentic twist at the end, also the moving from past to current day worked really well. I have no hesitation in recommending this novel highly.” Brenda1
