How To Fix Downloaded Audiobooks Not Showing up on iPhone or iPad

Listening to audio books is great and fun. Instead of reading e-books or pdf files once in a while you would spend good time  listening to the audio of the books instead of putting my eyes for a long, rigorous task.
Earlier Audiobooks section was part of the stock Music app on iPhone and iPad. However, with the release of iOS 8.4, it got incorporated into the iBooks app. Honestly speaking, I didn’t find this change quite straightforward initially as I would often, forgetfully, run into the Music app and begin to search the audiobooks. I’m sure many of you may have faced the same problem.
A few days back, I found downloaded audiobooks missing in the iBooks app. At first, I couldn’t figure out why they had disappeared. Luckily, a few tricks resolved the issue, and I was able to bring them back successfully.
