Reporter Moira Harrisons is lost. In the dark. In a thunderstorm. When a confusing detour places her on a rural, wooded road, she's startled by the sudden appearance of a lone figure caught in the beam of her headlights. Though Moira jams on her brakes, the car careens across the wet pavement--and the solid thump against the side of the vehicle tells her she hit the person before she crashes into a tree on the far side of the road.
A dazed Moira is relieved when a man opens her door, tells her he saw everything, and promises to call 911. Then everything fades to black. When she comes to an hour later, she is alone. No man. No 911. No injured person lying on the side of the road. But she can't forget the look of terror she saw on the person's face in the instant before her headlights swung away. The person she hit had been in trouble. She's sure of it. But she can't get anyone to believe her story--except a handsome former police detective, now a private eye, who agrees to take on the case.
From the very first page, readers will be hooked into this fast-paced story full of shocking secrets from fan-favorite Irene Hannon. "Vanished" is the exciting first book in the Private Justice series: Three justice seekers who got burned playing by the rules now have a second chance to make things right.
I loved this book. Moria is a reporter on the way home from a job interview when she has to take a detour. The rain and storm make her nervous but she never expects to see someone panicked in the middle of the road. Trying to avoid hitting the person, she feels sick when she feels a thud as her car careens out of control. A series of bizzar events leads her to hire a PI, but not just any PI....a former police officer who captures her attention from the very start.
I loved Moria. She was a down to earth, tenatious reporter who needs to know the truth and strives for it. I liked Phoenix and all three partners, each brings their own flavor to the story. Cal is just right for Moria and she is just right for him...if the past hadn't happened it would be so simple. I like watching how both struggle through the relationship that both obviously want but each have their own issues.
I rate this 5/5. Great start to a new series and I cannot wait to read the rest.
