Couldn't put it sown. This is a real "edge of your seat" story. Great summer escape reading.

The suspense in this book was absolutely AMAZING! I was biting my nails to see it end, but at the same time, I was afraid for it to end because I didn't want to know what happened just in case it was a sad ending. Be warned, if you pick this book up, you need to have time to devote to it because you won't be able to put it down.

Great audio book. The story made the 1 hour 45 minute commute seem like nothing. At one point I sat in my driveway when I returned home because I just had to hear what was coming next. Is this like not being able to put the book down at 2am because you have to read the next chapter? The content was great. This was my 1st Karen Robards book, either to read or listen to, but I will be looking for more.

This was a good book, kept me in suspense until the end. Although I would have liked it to go into more detail concerning the ending.

This book had an excellent premise, with good characters, although the hero was far more likeable than the heroine, who got on my nerves a bit. A good book, not one of Robards' best, but still good. It could have been quite a bit shorter and been a better book. The plot was dragged out unnecessarily, adding nothing to the story.

This book 'had me' from the first page. Great story, with mystery, suspense, twists, and romance. The ending seemed a bit abrupt, and left me feeling like I wanted at least one more chapter.

Although the plot of VANISHED has been done many times, Karen Robards brings her own unique talents to this tale of a lost child. Not up to her usual standards of plot it does carry her trademark of unconnected events which finally come togather in a very remarkable way. My greatest complaint is the whinny, clingy,unstable heroine. She is a prosecutor who is supposed to be one of the best, she goes after her job fully, yet doesn't eat, falls apart easily, and hasn't seen her best friend, who is a sexy male P I in any way other than a friend in seven years. Give me a break, some I could overlook, but not wanting comfort of food, entertainment, or sex for seven years. NOt likely.

Sarah Mason is 31, seven years ago her 5 year old daughter went missing from a park. Lexie has not been heard from since, but Sarah has been searching for her with the help of Jake Hogan for the whole seven years. She is a prosecutor in the DA's office. Her whole life centers on her job and her search for her child.

Jake Hogan is a former FBI agent who has gone into the private sector. He runs his grandfather's private investigation agency. Jake is a man's man and a woman's too. Strong, giving, and ready to do anything to protect the woman he has come to love while furnishing her with family, hope, and security in her life for the last seven years. Even he has trouble believing her tales of phone calls from her kidnapped daughter after seven years.

Great mystery. I had to finish it because it was to upsetting not knowing how it would end. Anything that has to do with children missing or dead is hard to read.
