Review: Vanishing Act by Jennifer AlLee & Lisa Karon Richardson


Vanishing Act by Jennifer AlLee & Lisa Karon Richardson
Charm and Deceit series: Book two
Find on: Amazon, Goodreads

About the book:

Juliet Button doesn't even believe in ghosts, but she believes in supporting her makeshift family of misfits. Having spent years as assistant to her uncle, an illusionist, she now has all of the skills and know–how she needs to make an audience believe the impossible. So, she begins a career as a medium by the name of Miss Avila. She wants nothing to do with a detective with the power to destroy the life she's built, but when President Lincoln's youngest son is kidnapped, and the first lady comes to her for help, she can't refuse, even if it means facing Pinkerton agent Carter Forbes, who knows far too much about her already—and possibly falling in love.

My thoughts:

There's something about books with Pinkerton Agents that I just love! So when I saw this book and read the description, I knew I had to read it.

The story was interesting and I liked that it was possible for the reader to guess who the kidnapper was, but it wasn't a given who he/she was.

Vanishing Act was a slower read for me. I liked the story throughout, but I could easily stop reading and not feel like I needed to rush back to it.

Overall, a good suspense/historical novel. I enjoyed it and am glad I read it. I look forward to reading future books in this series.

*I received a complimentary ARC copy of this book for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. As always, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
