Vanished by Barbara Derksen
"Their lives are changed forever when murder and kidnapping take Brian Strait and Andrea Wilton to Haiti, the land of voodoo and street children. Vanished tells the story of their search for their friends, Trent and Diane Michner, but before they ever get started, a neighbor is murdered on Andrea’s doorstep and then her house is burned to the ground. Two men in a black Mustang shadow the couple."
All they had to say in the description was that this book was considered a mystery and I was hooked. It was an easy quick read and the story kept my attention fairly well. There were a few plot twists and surprises but it wasn't one of those "Oh My Goodness, I didn't see that coming" type of books.
There is some easy banter between friends with a blossoming relationship that you know is coming. The two main characters decide to save their friends and have many obstacles to face including their house being burned down. There is a great side story that will really warm your heart as they show compassion to a little girl in Haiti. I enjoyed the fact that Andrea came into her own and became an independent and strong woman by the end of the story.
This is a great weekend of vacation read, the type of book that you don't have to think to much about as you go along. It is the first part in a series and I have the second book so stay tuned for that review.
