    A chilling thriller that will leave you guessing until the end!

    3.5 out of 5 Stars

    Vanished in the Night is an investigative thriller, with a bit of romance woven into the plot. Veronica, an ER nurse, is thrown into her stepbrother's murder investigation after the police begin to question and suspect her father (who you will come to despise). As the story unfolds the reader is introduced to a great deal of characters, one being the love interest of Veronica named Zach. Zach is one of the main investigators on her brother's case when the two are introduced. In fact, he is the one who broke the news to her that her brother's body had been found at a construction site.

    At first Veronica is very apprehensive towards Zach. Being the daughter of a drunk, she does not trust cops and begins to conduct her own investigation into the case. The deeper you travel into the story; you begin to understand the characters motives (even the side characters) and there are clues that keep you guessing about who the killer might turn out to be. This is a story filled with child abuse, a twenty year cover-up, romantic elements, and horrific actions. There is plenty of suspense and heart pounding action that in the end may leave you with palpitations.

    It was a pretty good book and I will read more books from this author! Full review and other details can be found on my blog Mother/Gamer/Writer.

    This story will lead the reader into immediate action. Veronica avoids the police/law enforcement in general due to her father, George. However, she cannot ignore the two officers when they come knocking on her door. She learns that the body of her half-brother, Max, has been found and it is a murder investigation. Zach, one of the officers, garners her attention for more than just his grisly announcement. She and Zach have a strong connection that only gets more powerful throughout the novel.

    The police suspect her father for Max's murder, leading Veronica to attempt an investigation of her own. This leads her into many surprising events that will capture and keep the readers' interest. The novel is fast-paced and the reader will enjoy getting to know Veronica, who is a very likable character. The plot is good, the secondary characters are worth reading about-they round out the story. This novel is recommended for adults who enjoy mystery tinged with romance.
