Vanished by Kendra Elliot
(Bones Secrets Novel #5)
Publication Date: June 24, 2014
When eleven-year-old Henley Fairbanks is abducted on her way to school, the FBI doesn’t waste a moment, sending agents to scour the area and embedding Special Agent Ava McLane with the distraught family. In the eye of the storm is local detective Mason Callahan, who also happens to be related to Henley. To make matters worse for Mason, the kidnapping comes on the heels of the murder of his longtime confidential informant, and he’s been sidelined from the investigation. Now both he and Agent McLane are holed up in the Fairbanks’ home, along with Callahan’s ex-wife, Robin. Every second counts in a kidnapping case, and the stakes keep rising the longer Henley stays missing. As Ava and Mason struggle to hold the Fairbanks family together in their darkest hour, the two investigators find themselves more and more drawn to each other.
Ok, so before you give me crap about not reviewing book #4 before I start lusting over #5…there is a method to my madness. It just so happens that I just finished Alone. (Which I will shamefully admit I’ve had since December. Yes…I suck.) And plan to review it next week. Which is why I went hunting for the release date for the next novel. Truth be told, I have a bit of a girl crush on Kendra. (Shhh…don’t tell her.) There is just something about her ability to create a suspensefully angsty thriller that gets my blood a pumping. So, it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise to see Vanished as today’s WoW.
But, let’s actually take a look at the synopsis so I can convince you further. 1) Missing Kid. Check. 2) FBI involvement. Check. Check. 3) Local detective sticking his nose into everyone’s beezwax. (Hmmm…should that be hyphenated?) You put them all together and you turn yourself around…that’s what it’s all about. Hey! (Just kidding.) (Kinda.) (Maybe.) Anywho, this is a fun ride just waiting for me to get my little fingers on it, AND, I can safely say there will be no 5 month delay. THIS is what I am waiting for.
What are YOU waiting for?
