This is the fifth book in the Bone Secrets series and it was just as good as the previous books, in some ways it was even better.

When 11yr old Henley gets abducted on her way to school it brings her slightly unusual family together as they aide in the search. Secrets come to light and tempers rise as they all must face the skeletons in their closets in order to get to bottom of why this is happening, in the hopes that they can bring Henley safely home. Mason is confronted by his own perceived failures as he tries to be there for his son and his new family, he is on the outskirts looking in but he is determined to step up and be the father his son needs. Unfortunately, Mason has issues of his own, someone is attacking him professionally and he is under scrutiny from all sides, he finds an ally in Ava McLane as they band together to get the family through each day with their sanity intact.

Emotions are running high in this psychological thriller and I was glued to my kindle screen from start to finish. Kids in romantic suspense novels are one of my favourite tropes, but as a Mum reading about abductions or missing children can be tough, Kendra handled it beautifully. I was fully invested in the tale and emotionally, she put me through the ringer! I loved the Criminal Minds-esque feel to this one, it was a definite winner for me!

Vanished has a different feel from the other books in the series. I can't quite put my finger on what it is exactly that makes it stand out for me, and believe me I have tried. It can be read as a stand alone but if you enjoy mystery thrillers or romantic suspense then you should definitely give them a try and I recommend reading them all.

ARC received in exchange for honest review.

Mason Callahan, a Detective with the Oregon State police, is working with the FBI’s Special Agent Ava McLane in a chilling case of child abduction. The child in question is the step daughter of Mason’s ex wife. It was very interesting to learn how the FBI react to and treat child abduction. It’s given top priority and their CARD (Child Abduction Rapid Deployment) Team are immediately sent out to assist the local police force with their expertise in this most emotional and terrifying crime.

Running alongside and interwoven is the brutal murder of Josie, Mason’s confidential informant. Those two combined factors make this mystery/thriller lean more towards the psychological and as Mason’s life quickly spirals out of control he realises someone has it in for him…but he doesn’t know who or why.

Mason and Ava are both dedicated and committed to their respective jobs and I like that their personal story doesn’t overshadow and take over the main focus of the story. There’s quite a large cast of characters who are all given enough consideration to make them real and substantial. Mason and Ava have depth and the character development is so good, it’s impossible not to like, and be drawn to, them. Mason intrigued me with his cowboy hat and boots and the emotions he kept in well in check.

'Under that ‘by the book’ cowboy was a gentleman with a big heart'

The suspense and tensions are played out skillfully, an intricate, involved and very conceivable storyline kept me absorbed and entertained throughout. The writing expresses perfectly the drama, sadness and feelings of utter helplessness and the emotional content is powerful. The past and present are interwoven culminating in a tense and moving finale. I couldn’t help but be a little sorry for the culprit and his sad life.

A solid, well researched story. I look forward to Mason Callahan #2

Format: Paperback
Mason’s life is getting complicated: one of his CI is brutally murdered and the proofs will point to Mason being the murderer; his ex-wife new husband’s daughter is kidnapped and Mason will offer his help to act as spokeman for the family.

Amidst all of this difficult situation, Mason meets Ava, the FBI’s agent working the case and more feeling, of a different kind, appear.

The investigation into what happened to little Henley as well as the impact her disappearance has in the family, took me in a journey of powerful emotions.

I’m highly impressed with the FBI’s procedures in cases of missing children.

As with the previous books, it was a delight to read this one. Kendra Elliot’s writing captures the attention since the beginning. I’ll wait impatiently for the next novel, also featured by Mason and Ava.

I'm afraid I didn't find this book riveting. I kept stopping reading and playing word, solitaire and Mahjong games on my Kindle instead. The pace did increase towards the end; the last quarter of the book was better than the rest.

Why do authors of thrillers seem compelled to include graphic sex scenes? I buy thrillers to read thrillers, not love stories and I just am not comfortable with this. I tended to skim-read it. At least there was only one occasion.

I doubt I will buy another book by Kendra Elliot. There are many more books out there to buy, or even get free, and hopefully some will be more exciting and fast-paced than this one. I'm afraid that I will not be recommending it to anyone.
