"Time will only fuel doubts, not eliminate them"
She had me at the first sentence of this book. Nothing like an attention getter to have you engrossed immediately. And I stayed that way until the very last page. Vanishing Act was like a mini-vacation for me. It took me away from my endless To-Do-List, allowing me to relax and enjoy myself as I enacted my own
with my 'Do Not Disturb' swag hanging on the door of my reading room.
Landon decided to escape the pressure of his frantic and overwhelming public life by hiding out for a while, keeping his destination and his identity a secret. Determined to take the time to wind down and to pursue something that he'd been wanting to do for a long time, in privacy. He was enjoying his anonymity, and the freedom of an existence without technology. He wasn't tempted to see what the media was saying about him, he didn't care. He didn't have to listen to his phone ringing, he left it back home. He didn't have to smile, or answer questions, or pretend he cared. He didn't have to do anytning he didn't want to. It was wonderful,
for a while.
Surprisingly he eventually became bored with his own company. And like a wish come true, a visitor showed up unexpectedly.
That was a day that he would never forget...
You're assuming it was the woman that would eventually be his, right? Well, you would be wrong. Nope, it was much more interesting than that. But that's all your getting from me. You need to enjoy the process. Have your own mini-stay-cation. Forget the laundry and the dishes. Grab a snack, maybe some
Sit back and get lost with Landon. Trust me, it won't be hard. Well,
might be hard, but I was talking about getting lost. Get your mind out of the gutter!
Vanishing Act was sexy and sweet, fun and flirty, and sometimes sad and suspenseful. It was exciting to wait for certain revelations to occur, making every page turn a possibility, but not a guarantee. I fell in love with some of the support characters, especially that
that set things in motion. It was a very satisfying read that left me with a smile on my face.
