"Elliot's best work to date. The author's talent is evident in the character's wit and smart dialogue...One wouldn't necessarily think a psychological thriller and romance would mesh together well, but Elliot knows what she's doing when she turns readers' minds inside out and then softens the blow with an unforgettable love story." —RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 Stars, Top Pick

By: Kendra Elliott
When 11-year-old Henley is kidnapped on her way to school, it takes the combined efforts of Police Detective Mason Callahan and FBI special agent Ava McLane to find her and each other.
I am not usually a “detective” story kind of girl. I prefer historical fiction, science fiction and the occasional fantasy. However, when I came across this book by Kendra Elliott it intrigued me. I am incredibly glad that I gave it a chance.
I did not realize until I was ready to write this review that VANISHED is the 5th book in a series. That’s a pretty good statement to the skills of the author. It’s a wonderful standalone book. However, now that I know it’s part of series I’ll have to read them all.
I appreciated the depth to which Ms. Elliott plumbed to develop ALL of her characters, not just Mason and Ava. From the secondary players such as Mason’s son to the almost unimportant bystanders each seemed as real as you and I.
The plotting was steady. I wish it had been a LITTLE bit faster-paced, however that’s a very minor complaint for me personally.
At its heart, VANISHED is a romance between Mason and Ava. Yet, the growing relationship between the two was kept to the background. The little girl, Henley, and her kidnapping was more important and the characters DO realize that. Had the romance between the two been the focus of the book, I think I as a reader would have been turned off. As it was, it was handled with class and I appreciated that.
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone.

Why do authors of thrillers seem compelled to include graphic sex scenes? I buy thrillers to read thrillers, not love stories and I just am not comfortable with this. I tended to skim-read it. At least there was only one occasion.
I doubt I will buy another book by Kendra Elliot. There are many more books out there to buy, or even get free, and hopefully some will be more exciting and fast-paced than this one. I'm afraid that I will not be recommending it to anyone.
The characters were easy to like and as the story unfolded, I couldn't put it down.
Highly recommend this book and love Kendra Elliot books.
The story line, although interesting, wasnt to me that important. What I really enjoyed was how the main characters were gradually introduced and revealed to the reader, I started to care about them and have real empathy - and then wham the horrible situation they found themselves in starting to be revealed and I was totally hooked to the end and I was left wanting more.
I look forward to reading more from this author
