Download ´ The Other Lady Vanishes ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The New York Times bestselling author of The Girl Who Knew Too Much sweeps readers back to 1930s California where the most dazzling of illusions can't hide the darkest secretsAfter escaping from a private sanitarium Adelaide Blake arrives in Burning Cove California desperate to start over Working at an herbal tea shop puts her on the radar of those who freuent the seaside resort town Hollywood m. The strength of this one was much the romance than the mystery and suspense elements of the plot I didn t like this one as much as I did the first novel in the series but I am interested in reading the third book These are pretty light easy reads and I do like the whole 1930s town near Hollywood setting This is the second book in the Burning Cove series but can easily be read as a standalone However some characters from the first book make appearances in this one so your reading experience is enhanced a bit if you start at the beginning Adelaide Blake is working at an herbal tea shop in the seaside resort town of Burning Cove She came to town a few months ago having just escaped from a mental institution She doesn t want to be found which is why she is going by a different name Given she witnessed something horrific right before she escaped starting over seems like her best option But some people have different plans for Adelaide and she s going to have to figure out a way to outsmart the ones who want to silence her Maybe the handsome widower Jake Truett who is a customer at the tea shop can help Adelaide wink winkI was way invested in the AdelaideJake storyline rather than her past and everything related to the sanatorium It was too far fetched for me although to be fair a book like this isn t really meant to be analysed to death I do wish though it would have been of a cheesy but fun read rather than veering into cheesy bad territory Even though I didn t care for this one as much as the first book I still like the concept of the series and how Burning Cove is this place where women go to escape their pasts and hopefully move on to a brighter future Will definitely check out the third book as the series has a little bit of everything I enjoy including mystery romance and Old Hollywood glitz and glam

Download ´ The Other Lady Vanishes ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Overs and shakers always in need of hangover cures and tonics One such customer is Jake Truett a recently widowed businessman in town for a therapeutic rest But unbeknownst to Adelaide his exhaustion is just a coverIn Burning Cove no one is who they seem Behind facades of glamour and power hide drug dealers gangsters and grifters Into this make believe world comes psychic to the stars Madame Zol. This is second in a series but you can comfortably start here if you like Further starting here probably won t spoil the first one much I still recommend reading them in order but that s a personal preference for going in orderThis is much like the first as the setting and many characters are carried over The mystery plot isn t uite as good It centers around a remarkable fictional drug that has some real world analogs but only barely Since nothing like it exists in reality the story closely resembles some of uick s paranormal novels Arcane Society for example and that disappointed me a bit The plot holds together just fine if you give it the existence of the drug but I still resent the need to do soAnd I took a bit to warm to Adelaide mostly because she was so desperate in the beginning that I feared a damselly heroine than we had in the first story She turned out much better than those expectations however so it didn t take long for me to fully engage in the story Plus Jake is really awesome but then with a name like thatI also liked the side semi romance with Raina and Luther going on through this story I figured they d star in this one and am surprised they aren t the next either It makes me wonder what uick is up to with those two It s handled well enough that I wouldn t mind if they just feature as side characters throughout the series But I kinda want a story of their own even soAnyway another strong showing in what is uickly heh becoming my favorite series by the author Two really strong stories so far and I really hope she can keep up the pace I m going to call this one 4 stars mostly because the plot relied so heavily on an unlikely drug I m rounding up though because everything else was just about perfectA note about Steamy There were two explicit sex scenes but they were both pretty short so this is still the lower end of my steam tolerance Plus bonus points for bringing in condoms this time I ve never heard of a tin of condoms before but that sounds like it might have actually been a thing Truth told I m a little scared to search the internets for details
