Vanished by Irene Hannon | Book review by Loraine Nunley #bookreview

What is this book about?

Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she’s startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement–and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the far side of the road.

A dazed Moira is relieved when a man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then everything fades to black. When she comes to an hour later, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person lying on the side of the road. But she can’t forget the look of terror she saw on the person’s face in the instant before her headlights swung away. The person she hit had been in trouble. She’s sure of it. But she can’t get anyone to believe her story–except a handsome former police detective, now a private eye, who agrees to take on the case.

My review:

From the start of this story, I was intrigued by the mystery of Moira’s accident. Who was the woman in the road? Who was the good Samaritan? Being an investigative reporter made her naturally more curious than many people would be which led her to digging into the mystery when others would have just given up.

I liked the chemistry between Moira and Cal. I also liked that they didn’t deny their attraction to each other. There were some obstacles for admitting the attraction, but it was handled in a manner that felt natural to me.

The viewpoint of the villain was sprinkled throughout the book. At first I was intrigued by the third point of view but then it began to feel forced. Like the villain was justifying their evil plan to me. I found myself skimming some of that part just to get to the action.

What I enjoyed most about this book:

The natural chemistry between Moira and Cal.

What I didn’t like about this book:

The villain’s point of view.

Would I recommend this book to others? Yes, it is a nice balance between suspense and romance. There is nice chemistry between Moira and Cal. This is the first book of the series.
