Vanished in the Mountains Celebration Tour Stop# 29 – Review

Hi Readers, It’s finally the weekend!!

Hopefully you are all staying safe and enjoying your weekend, but if you need a new book to read while waiting for the storms to pass, I have a definite “must read” for you. So I have the pleasure of being part of another Celebration Tour with Celebrate Lit and this time it’s for one of my favorite types of books — A Love Inspired Suspense! So without further ado, let me show you Vanished in the Mountains by Tanya Stowe.

The Bookish Details

Book: Vanished in the Mountains

Author: Tanya Stowe

Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense

Release date: February 3, 2021

From The Back Cover

A search for missing women leads to a deadly pursuit.

When domestic violence counselor Dulcie Parker uncovers evidence of a human trafficking ring in the Four Corners area, she’s determined to stop it or die trying. With corruption all around her and killers on her trail, Deputy Sheriff Austin Turner’s the only one she can trust. But can they work together to expose the crime ring before she becomes the next victim?

What Did I Think?

This book was so hard to put down! From the moment I read about someone sending Dulcie a threatening note, I was hooked. I really love Dulcie’s personality because she just seemed very human. She was freaked out about her situation and struggled with freezing in the face of danger (because of a rough childhood), but you could also see her grow as a character. I also loved how strong her faith was, and how she was so passionate about fighting for those who wouldn’t fight for themselves.

So while I was reading the book, I thought that I had reached the end because there’s this one part that seems like the climatic ending and I was very disappointed, because for such a great book, the resolution seemed too easy… but then you actually get to the the end and WOW! Oh, I really want to tell you about the end, but I don’t want to mess it up for you, so I will leave you with this – it is the perfect ending to the book. Overall, I’ve never read a Love Inspired Suspense book that I didn’t like, and this one was great. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to anyone who wants a shorter book that is filled with suspense, action and even a bit or romance.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

More from Tanya

When my children were very young, my husband and I took a trip to Colorado for a family reunion. After the reunion we traveled through Colorado to see the sights. We stopped in Silverton and my sister and I took my young son and daughter down the narrow-gauge railroad to Durango. Riding the swaying train down slopes covered in pine trees with the rushing white water of the Animas River below, I knew I’d write about the area someday. Many years later my husband and I took our first “kid-less” vacation in our motorhome. We stayed in a campground on the Navajo Nation next to Canyon de Chelly. We had no running water or electricity and that night, a storm blew in from the west. We watched the sky change to hues of purple and pink and then sat mesmerized as lightning strikes crossed the magnificent valley. Once again, I planted the scenes in my mind, determined to write about them one day. Little did I know both vacations would combine into one story. I hope you find my memories of the Four Corners area as unforgettable as I did! Blessings!

  1. thank you so much for your thoughts. I love to read romance and now cozies. I have yet to start suspense thinking it is a little more intense and that I dont handle well. But everything I have read about this book makes me want to give it a try. I will try with this book. Thank you Tanya for sharing about bit about yourself and how you got the inspiration for this book. I do love to learn how authors get their inspiration. quilting dash lady at comcast dot net
