I have often heard mass market romance such as those published by Harlequin criticized as inferior. I have subscribed to the Love Inspired Suspense series for several years now and have found most of the books in that series to be very well written and interesting. Yes, they are quick reads and may not contain the depth of trade paperbacks but there are times when what I want is a quick read that is also a good story and a pleasant escape. Current Love Inspired Suspense authors such as Liz Johnson fulfill that requirement perfectly.

Vanishing Act is a fast moving story about a young woman who relocated and changed her identity after witnessing her father’s murder and the FBI agent who is looking for her. The plot takes several interesting twists as it evolves and the reader will have a chuckle or two at how long it takes Nate to realize that the person he is looking for has been right under his nose the entire time. Filled with action, suspense, and romance, Vanishing Act never fails to point the reader toward the Lord. It is the perfect companion to curl up with for an evening’s relaxation.


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.
