I have long enjoyed Irene Hannon's romantic suspense -- so I preordered this one, and with each new book I wonder if she'll be able to recapture that perfect mix of engaging story and characters I enjoy getting to know. Vanished does both of those. The heroine, Moira Harrison, gets lost in a thunderstorm and loses control of her car when someone appears in front of it. After the accident she tries to find the person she hit, but that person had vanished. As an investigative reporter, she can't let the matter go, even when the police can't find evidence she hit anyone. So she turns to a private investigator for help.

Thus launches a story. Relatively early on, we know who the bad guy is, so it seems a forgone conclusion that they'll get him. But the bad guy is a powerful figure with so much good you wonder if he could really be it. But there's plenty of bad mixed in to make me want him to get caught. Then there's the romance. The book is heavy on that ala Dee Henderson, and it's a very satisfying part of the book. 

Those who love romantic suspense that's heavier on the romance will enjoy this read. I can't wait to read the stories of the other investigators -- they are great heroes in waiting.

Every 'review' is a plot spoiler by these rude ppl bragging how they got they book for free for 'unbiased' review. That right away tells me its a biased review, then its a mile long which tells me it reveals the entire story. I do not read these uber long plot reveals, but having to scroll thru them i always see something that ruins the book. We have the overview which tells us enough detail to catch our interest. We do not need your cliff note dissertations telling us what else happens, rewriting the book in your words. Please, be considerate of other readers. Let us read the book for ourselves. Do not spoil the book for us. You read the book, let us have that same enjoyment.

    Vanished is correct

    When I tried to open this it opened to the front page and then there was nothing. This also happened with Gone. I think it is unfair that I pay for these books and they don't down load. Other than this I love my Nook and reading books on it. Barbara Levering

    No try, do...This novel didn't even try

    I don't know why I read this. Characters were trite, really disliked the "church/God" stuff. Plot was predictable and the authors lack of really getting what it is like to be on the shooting end of a gun was pathetic. She needs to take some lessons from Michael Connelly.

    Warning: Christian Novel

    A warning in the description would have been appreciated that is a Christan Novel. Book is very boring.
