We rated this book:


A Christmas Vanishing is the next installment in Author Anne Perry’s Christmas novella series. In this book, a woman named Mariah goes to St. Helena to visit her friend Sadie whom she has not seen for almost twenty years after a quarrel they had. Sadie has invited Mariah to stay with her and her husband Barton, however when Mariah arrives, Sadie is nowhere to be found. Furthermore, Barton slams the door in her face and Mariah goes to stay with a woman named Gwendolyn. From there, Mariah and several people in the village help figure out where Sadie could have gone. Did she leave of her own fruition or was she kidnapped? But the more people Mariah talks to, the more she is convinced that Sadie is not so innocent. In fact, she may have brought all of this on herself.

Although the books in this series are quite short, there is a hefty story with wonderful characters jam-packed into it. This holiday mystery is the perfect read on a cozy winter night and will have readers guessing whodunnit. The book is written in a way that readers will not want to put in down in order to find out where Sadie could have gone and what really happened to her.
