A Pages Review...

Vanishing Act by Liz Johnson

“Eighteen months ago, Nora James watched as her father was shot in an alley –and then she fled. She changed her name, her appearance and her job, hoping to keep her father’s shooter at bay. For months, it worked…but now her luck has run out. A ruthless assassin is on her trail, and soon Nora, now known as Danielle, will be found. But this time, she has FBI agent Nate Andersen by her side –right? The handsome agent would give his life to protect Danielle, but he’s wary of giving his heart…until a deadly confrontation leaves him with both on the line.”

So that is mainly the synopsis of the book (without giving away ANY information at all!) After all the book labeled as a “Love Inspired Suspense” I believe that Liz did a great job writing this book. It was very “readable” meaning to me I easily picked it up and got into the book right away. I found myself reading this book early into the morning (or very late at night) trying to figure out who was really after Danielle or Nora as well as will Nate finally decide to give his heart away and not be afraid of living in the past.

Liz put some discussion questions in the back of the book…so I thought I would answer a couple for my review.

Who is my favorite character and why? I believe that I would have to say the character that I ended up always trying to find out more about was Nate. He seemed to be living life as he thinks he should. He ended up looking “good” on the outside but deep inside there was a great storm about to happen. He was wearing a mask that hid who he really ought to be.

While we don’t see too much of Andy, we know he’s played a big role in Danielle’s life. Who has been a caretaker, encourager, mentor, and/or friend like that to you? Well just to fill you in Andy is Danielle’s boss at the car repair place. He has helped Danielle get a “new” life without asking questions. For me there have been many people that have been encouragers, mentors and friends that I wouldn’t be myself without them. My parents have always encouraged me to be the woman they new God wanted me to be. My husband is truly my best friend and has helped me out a lot recently. My dear friend Allison helped me out wonderfully when I moved away from my family to Colorado. My dear friend Heather has prayed over me when I struggling. And there are also many friends out there that I can’t mention them all. As well as my blog readers who give me such WONDERFUL comments and share their friendship with me that way.

Again this book Vanishing Act by Liz Johnson is a readable book, that had me guessing every step of the way. It has romance, suspense, mystery, restoration, and God’s heart at the matter which makes it a very pleasing book to read. For more information about Liz Johnson please go to
