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.
Very good reading and hard to put down. A mother confronts her worst nightmares. Seven years ago her five year old daughter vanished and was never found.
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 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 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.
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.
First book that I have read from this author. Plan to read more. Excellant story. Goes right to the heart. A little romance and mystery. Couldn't put the book down. Read it in one night!!!!
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.
Thriller fans don't miss this one. A Mother's worse nightmare.
Great book, it keeps you interested and wondering what will happen next.
An excellent book! It kept my interest throughout. I am going to order more of Karen Robards books.
I love Karen Robards books, this one was very good ... and just heartbreaking
Great book. You have to keep reading to find out what is going to happen next. First time I have read a book by this author and it won't be my last. I highly recommend this book.
One of the best books I've read in a long time. Very surprising ending - didn't see it coming at all! Would definitely recommend this book!
This book was a can't put down book. The book kept you on your toes and was full of suspense. Definitely a must read.
A little romance, a lot of mystery, keeps you guessing until the end.
Another good one by Robards.
A mother confronts her worst nightmare
This book is great and I have it on my keeper shelf.
Great story. Left me hanging till the end
this was a book that you can not puy down,alittle bit of romance and thriller enough to keep you on edge of your seat
Great mystery/suspense with some romance thrown in.
Nothing real suspenseful happens in this book until towards the end but it's a good story. I like the way it was written. Very enjoyable.
Started out a little slow for me but definitely worth reading. VERY suprising twist at the end.
Typical Robards story, not my favorite, but a best-seller. Many people loved it!
THIS WAS ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE READ,GOOD ENDING!!
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.
