I have been given the opportunity to do some reviews on some books from a few different publishers. Some of them do not quite fit into the focus I have for Living Infuzion, but obviously have some good information. Here are some of my perspectives on some pretty good books! Enjoy!

Vanished - Irene Hannon

"A tenacious reporter. A skeptical PI. And a secret that will shatter lives.  Reporter Moira Harrison is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a lone figure suddenly appears in the beam of her headlights, Moira slams on her brakes-but it’s too late. She feels the solid thump against the side of her car before crashing into a tree on the far side of the road.  A man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then the world fades to black. When she comes to, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person. But she can’t forget the look of terror she saw on that face in the instant before her headlights swung away. And she can’t get anyone to believe her story-except maybe a handsome ex–homicide detective turned private eye, who reluctantly agrees to take on the case.  As clues begin to surface, it becomes obvious that someone doesn’t want this mystery solved-and will stop at nothing to protect a shocking secret."

I have previously enjoyed Irene Hannon's Guardians of Justice and Heroes of Quantico series; so when the opportunity came in my email to review the first book in her new series I jumped at the chance.  Just when I thought Mrs. Hannon couldn't get any better, she goes and proves this fan wrong.  Vanished grabs you right from the very first chapter and keeps you guessing right until the very end.  It is a fast paced, page turner that kept me on the edge of my seat.  (I found myself staying up rather late one night saying one more chapter and it ended up being five more chapters!)  Moira and Cal's journey is fraught with danger and intrigue.  The development of their relationship is very natural and not forced.  They each carry a big amount of hurt and baggage that the other helps them to see through the eyes of God.   I look ever so much forward to exploring the other two men that make up the Phoenix Inc. detective agency in future books.  I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspense filled page turner.  (Also highly recommend the other series as well!!!)
