My Thoughts

Vanished without a Trace is written by Sarah Hamaker. This book starts off with action and does not let up through the whole story. This is a Love Inspired Suspense story. You can count on heart pounding action, minimal descriptions of violence and suspense so tense you can cut it with a knife.

Henderson Parker has never given up hope that his sister was still out there somewhere. He sees a picture in a Twin Oaks newspaper and heads to Virginia to check it out. Elle Updike is the host of Gone without a Trace podcast. The podcast focuses on finding missing people. Their first meeting does not go the way that Elle had planned, but they both realize they need each other.... to stay alive.

Someone does NOT want Henderson exploring leads and will stop at nothing to stop them. It seemed like every way they turned someone was trying to make sure they were eliminated. There are a lot of twists and turns in this story. There is not a lot of times where your heart can return to normal rhythm.

The book is well written. The characters are well developed. The storyline is engaging, action packed and unique. I absolutely love the Love Inspired Suspense books.
