Nate is an undercover FBI agent whose job is to find Nora James before the mob does. Unfortunately Danielle keeps distracting him from his mission. Danielle is a pretty auto mechanic in the college town of Crescent City, Colorado. In Nate’s search for Nora, Danielle keeps turning up, and she’s always in trouble. He knows he should not allow himself to have romantic feelings for anyone. With his family history of broken marriages, Nate thinks it’s best to avoid relationships altogether so that no one gets hurt. Unfortunately, he’s having a hard time remembering that with Danielle. Plus he should be focusing on finding Nora!

Vanishing Act is published by Steeple Hill Books as part of its Love Inspired Suspense collection. The book is considered inspirational romance, but like most of the other books of the genre, I didn’t find it to be overwhelmingly Christian. There are instances of prayer and church attendance by the characters, and the the “good guys” behaved morally. I do appreciate these qualities when they are woven into the story, and I think the Liz Johnson did a good job of that.

I took this book with me on my vacation to the beach. I found the book to be a perfect vacation book. It was entertaining and fun, but not too deep. The suspense was enough to keep me reading, but it was not so scary that I couldn’t put it down. The characters were likable, and I enjoyed both the mystery and romance aspects of the book.
