Kurzbeschreibung

Dana Lawrence doesn’t imagine when she buys the quaint Victorian house in the remote mountains of Colorado that her life will soon be in danger. She has heard the legend of Lelia Glenn and how she vanished in the 1800’s, but no one told her about the more recent disappearance of Amy Walden two years ago.
On the night of her arrival, Dana spies someone digging on her land. The sheriff tells her that on the day Amy disappeared Glenndale’s jewelry store was robbed. Amy’s boyfriend, Donnie Thorpe, is still on the run, and his accomplice, Jed Hoyt, has just been released from prison. Bennett believes a third party masterminded the robbery--her handsome neighbor, Logan Rand.
While Dana tries to beat the thieves to the stolen goods, she uncovers a grave. Threats and attempts on her life follow in rapid succession. Dana must identify the killer before she becomes the next vanished lady.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What happened to Amy?? 23. Februar 2013
Von C. Biby - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It has been awhile since I've read an "everyone's a suspect" type of mystery. Lately, I've been gravitating towards suspense novels where there is one bad guy and it is fairly obvious who that person is. I love both types and I really need to get back into the genre. That is why I jumped at the chance to read and review The Vanished Lady.

When I first started reading The Vanished Lady, I had to keep notes to help me keep track of the characters and their connections to each other. Dana is an ambitious woman from an artistic background. She sees this beautiful house and instantly knows that she can restore it. On there other hand, I kept thinking she was whacked out of her gorge for buying a creepy house with an equally creeped out abandoned mine. There is no way on Earth I would do the things she does in the book. I would be packed and in my car in 10 seconds flat. :) After buying the house, she meets just about everyone that lives in the town. First, there are her neighbors Logan Rand and Verla Glenn-Darlington (and her grandson Arley). While trying to solve the mystery, Dana meets most of the important people in town. They aren't important solely for the story, but they are prominent town people.

You really get two mysteries for the price of one with this book, but the story of Amy is the plot that drives the characters. While Lelia is important to the town, she is really the motive behind the robbery of Garrity's Gallery and the disappearance of Amy. What I loved about the story was that everyone had a motive and I thought that everyone was guilty at one point in the story. When the person was revealed, I went back to see if there were little clues pointing at them. Yes! They were very small, but the clues where there. Its best if you don't cheat (like I almost did) and skip to the ending. :)

I loved The Vanished Lady. It reminded me a lot of a classic "whodunit" where there is one person you know for certain is innocent and everyone else is guilty of something. You feel compassion with Amy and Dana, suspicious of just about everyone else, and confusion with Logan. This may sound weird, but I also felt like the ending was given ample time to tie up all the loose ends. It wasn't rushed and it wasn't too long, but I would have liked to see how the person apprehended. Is that mean? :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Read 18. April 2013
Von Gene Keiser - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This was the absolutely best book I've read in a long time. It was absolutely riveting from the beginning to the very end. I could not put it down. In most mysteries I can usually guess who did it within the first mention of the person. In this book I did guess correctly who the mastermind criminal was but I did not guess as soon as I usually do which was a very nice surprise. The story weaves some past legend with a current event and there are enough people who are suspicious that you are guessing both what happened to the past vanished lady and the current vanished lady and why as well as how they connect. I can't say enough good things about this book and I've already recommended it to many people I know because I enjoyed it so much. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves mysteries and books that you just can't put down because they are so interesting and well written. I can't think of anything I didn't like about this book. It is simply a great book and I am so glad I got to read it.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Story but Grammatical Errors Too Distracting 18. Januar 2014
Von Teddy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The story line of this book is pretty well developed. I did enjoy the cast of characters and the "whodunit" nature of the book. My complaint is that there are so many grammatical errors and other errors that any editor should have caught and corrected. These errors became very distracting to me and caused me to deal in my mind with the errors instead of the story line. It almost seemed as though the authors were working with a deadline and the errors became more and more prevalent as they raced to the story's conclusion.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Good Old Fashioned Whodunit 7. Juli 2013
Von gpangel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
My rating:4 of 5 stars
The Vanished Lady is January 2013 release. This book was provided to me by the authors for an honest review.Dana purchases an old Victorian home that had once been an Inn. The place is supposed to be a show place for her to start her business with a focus on restoring and interior decoration of Victorian homes. The house evidently comes with a little history. Years ago a lady with strong ties to the area disappeared. It was rumored she had her husband killed so she could be with her lover. But, more recently the previous occupant of the house, a young lady named Amy, also vanished. Her disappearance coincided with a robbery and the disappearance of a young man she was rumored to have a relationship with even though she was engaged to someone else. Two years have gone by and no word from Amy. Dana gets sucked into the mystery when one of the men tied to the robbery is released from prison. The assumption is that the "booty" is hidden somewhere on Dana's property. The more Dana learns about the history of the Vanished Lady and Amy, she feels more and more compelled to find out the truth. It seems everyone in town has a theory as to what happened to Amy. Some people thinks she ran away with her lover, some people think a local artist killed her. Some are convinced she is alive, and others are convinced she is dead. What was her role in the robbery? Was she having an affair? If so who was it she was really in love with? Where is the money and the jewelry from the robbery? Do some people in town know what happened to Amy? As Dana begins to ask more questions about Amy and the robbery, someone seems determined to scare Dana away. Not only that, a body surfaces and it looks like murder. This was a very absorbing "whodunit". I love the small town secrets and politics and history. A love triangle, a robbery, a murder and a whole slew of suspects, will keep you guessing all the way to the end. An excellent mystery. For those of you that enjoy a good mystery without a lot of forensics and graphic violence and SC, this one will appeal to you. I'm a fan for now on. I will be looking into more books by these authors. Overall an A.
