    2. 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, m [...]

    3. 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.This was a nice little mystery. The characters were not as developed as I like and feel that if they had more of a back story, it would have connected the reader with story.The story flowed fairly well from scene to scene and it was one of those rare times when I was not sure who done it until close to the end.The ending was a bit weak, but all in all, [...]

    4. 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 amb [...]

    5. This was an enjoyable book, though it took a while to really get going -- practically to Chapter 10, which is like 1/3 of the way, before it got "exciting". There was a lot of background that had to be covered. Although the story didn't go where I thought it might when I started, it did keep me interested enough to continue reading, and I didn't figure out whodunnit until it was revealed. I rather liked the protagonist, Dana, and was also kind of hoping the romantic angle went further, but there [...]

    6. The Vanished Ladyopens with a theme dear to my heart, saving a historic mansion from the wrecking ball. A dilapidated Victorian house, formerly an inn, has been purchased by 24-year old Dana with her last dime. It is located in gold mining territory in Colorado and comes with small town secrets attached. Two additional stories unwind, about two ladies who abruptly vanished from the premises, one in the 1800's and one more recently, on the same day as a jewelry store heist. The treasure has not b [...]

    7. I won't summarize the book since so many others already have. Rather, I will say that the plot is a really good one and I enjoyed that part of the story. One of the things I didn't enjoy was the fast pacing and compressed action. It should have been 100 pages longer in order to do justice to the tension and play out the romance. There was also a problem with the lack of time anchors throughout. It's hard to tell the amount of time that's passed at any point, so it comes across as if all the work [...]

    8. When Dana Lawrence sees The Vanished Lady Inn knows that she must buy this place and return it to it's former glory. Everyone Dana meets tells her about mystery surrounding The Vanished Lady that not only happened once but twice. The original Vanished Lady Leila Glenn and Amy Walden. Dana's intriguing neighbor Logan Rand is an artist and likes that Dana is going to be restoring The Vanished Lady Inn. Another mystery in Glenndale is the robbery at Garrity Gallery two years prior. As Dana moves th [...]

    9. The Vanished Lady is a woman-in-jeopardy story reminiscent of the Victoria Holt novels I used to devour. A strong woman puts herself in danger because she is determined to solve the mystery associated with her new home, an old Victorian mansion fallen into disrepair. Although some of her actions are foolhardy, they are in keeping with her desperate financial situation and her determination to succeed. She is surrounded by men she's afraid to trust, but in spite of her fear, she can't resist bein [...]

    10. It seems to me when the two sisters who wrote this book and so many others get together, something magical happens and a great story is born. In this tale they take a part of the past and bring it into a present mystery. When Dan Lawrence buys a beautiful old house it comes with a dark legacy. In the 1800's Leila Glenn vanished from the house and just two years ago Amy Walden also vanished, are the two disappearances related and what will that mean to Dana? Grab this book and find out. Readers a [...]

    11. I was surprised to find this little gem of a story. The characters could have used a bit more background so the reader would know them better but overall, the mystery part kept me wondering. I suspected, but wasn't sure until the end. A couple times I had to go back to see who someone was for sure because there seemed to be a lot of different characters.Will look for further work from this author. One thing: It's Cavalry, not Calvary. A proofreader should have caught that one.

    12. I really enjoyed "The Vanished Lady" and didn't figure out who did it until the end when it was revealed. It was so spooky at times and the book made me feel at times that their was someone standing behind me! Great story

    13. Very enjoyable easy read. Nothing too special when it comes to surprise the reader. Nice mystery and characters but also some typing errors that could have been avoided. However, I liked it and was eager to read it and finish the story to find out more about the mystery.

    14. I did not enjoy the writing of this book. I would place it one step above a Harlequin in quality of writing. I would not recommend this novel.

    15. IntriguingAs always the two sisters have done it again. They never disappoint. There is suspense and intrigue. Keep up the great work
