This story is a provocative tearjerker that I couldn’t put down Alexis is forced to deal with losing her family at a young age and even worse she has to deal with a mystery that could get her killed. I liked how much this character grew in the story she was really brave and went through things that no one should ever have to experience, but she came out of it a better person. There was so much emotion evoked from this book and I could really relate to the character’s need for independence in the beginning. So when she found her family missing after so much time apart I almost began to cry myself. It is a horrible thing to lose one’s family and this book really captures the heart of a family and how precious they are. Gabriel was a solid character with a lot of depth to him. It was nice to learn about him along with Alexis and come to understand him and his situation a bit more. I was really angry with him toward the end, but overall he was a great character. The story itself was beautiful and heart wrenching at times with somewhat of a bittersweet ending. There was some happiness for Alexis whom I was glad for and I believe the story really makes you stop and think about the ones you love and to maybe not take them for granted because one day they may not be there. I highly recommend this story to anyone who loves a great provocative story with a bit of romance and I also recommend keeping a box of tissues close by because this will definitely bring some tears.
After spending the past year in a remote Peru village, Alexis Mission returns home to New Mexico. Neither her parents nor her four-year-old brother knows she is coming because she fears rejection from father, who told her never to come back. However, no one is home yet it looks like her family left abruptly. Government agent Gabriel O¿Roarke tells her that her family was murdered and she is unsafe so he forces her to vanish. Gabriel feels bad that he lied because her family still lives under a new name for their protection. Ten years later, Alex realizes that someone has entered her Austin home stealing a sketch she made of her family. Using the drop number Gabriel left her she gets in touch with him. He arrives and soon they fall in love, but he vows to adhere to his pledge to her father to keep her safe while knowing what will happen to their relationship if she learns the truth. DISAPPEAR is an exhilarating romantic suspense that engages the audience from the moment no one is at the Mission home (yet the stove is on) until the female protagonist struggles to figure out what happened to her family. Gabriel is a martyr doing what ever his country needs while keeping the Missions safe though he somewhat fails at the latter. The exhilarating novel clearly showcases Kay David¿s talent, but one must wonder how incredible the tale could have been if the plot followed up with a stunned Alex seeking closure from the moment Gabriel enters her life instead of the decade gap.
