About the book:
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.
From the very first page, readers will be hooked into this fast-paced story full of shocking secrets from fan-favorite Irene Hannon. Vanished is the exciting first book in the Private Justice series: Three justice seekers who got burned playing by the rules now have a second chance to make things right.
This is the seventh of Irene Hannon's books I've read and it did not disappoint! Vanished started off with a bang and held my attention throughout! While I did guess a lot of what was going to happen in the story, it was still a great suspense read.
I thought the characters were great and I especially liked Cal and Dev. :) I have to say, though, I couldn't help getting a little frustrated with one of the characters because I found what he/she was doing to be very foolish.
Overall, I enjoyed Vanished very much and can hardly wait to read book two in the Private Justice series when it releases! I recommend it if you enjoy romantic suspense novels.
