I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Vanished by Elizabeth Heiter
Sometimes the past can haunt you...
Eighteen years ago, FBI profiler Evelyn Baine s best friend, Cassie Byers, disappeared, the third in a series of unsolved abductions. Only a macabre nursery rhyme was left at the scene, a nursery rhyme that claimed Evelyn was also an intended victim. Now, after all these years of silence, another girl has gone missing in South Carolina, and the Nursery Rhyme Killer is taking credit. But is Cassie s abductor really back, or is there a copycat at work?
Sometimes the past is best forgotten...
Evelyn has waited eighteen years for a chance to investigate, but when she returns to Rose Bay, she finds a dark side to the seemingly idyllic town. As the place erupts in violence and the kidnapper strikes again, Evelyn knows this is her last chance. If she doesn t figure out what happened to Cassie eighteen years ago, it may be Evelyn s turn to vanish without a trace.
Let’s forget about that. I love this! Seriously. Who is Elizabeth Heiter and why is it that nobody has told me about her? Where was I when this was released?
Okay, I admit, I was shocked when I knew that this was part of a series because O my gosh, this is illegal, I haven’t read the first book yet. And then I was like, what if I can’t understand the story?! What am I to do?
Soooo, about Vanished, I loved it! I didn’t know what to expect because well, I didn’t read the summary, and so I just dove into it.
At first I was like: Oh look, another book involving the FBI. This should be fun. And it was! I swear. I have always loved mystery, and this pretty much fulfilled it. I loved the thrill, and it was good. I’m not going into details so I’ll just you that the mystery part is fun and thrilling.
And there’s the mix of romance, and it was not exactly romantic but it was romantic. Okay, it was. Not in a very blunt romantic way but it was. It got me fangirling for five minutes after.
One thing, it was not a very quotable quotes everywhere kind of book but there were enough life lessons if you did not take everything word for word.
The writing was fair, and the characters were real. I didn’t have problems with regards to connecting with them. The plot itself was great. Though, I demand an epilogue for the epilogue.
I have high respects for authors who can write good mysteries and Elizabeth was just added to my list, so I suggest this to everyone: Read the series now. Don’t forget to start with the first book. Unlike me…
