In Mantequero book 1, June Blacker went to Spain on holiday, and found the love of her life. He was a man with a unique taste in women. He loved big women, it’s another matter that his love drained them.
Book 2, Disappeared, starts with Allison, June’s colleague at the school who’s worried when the term starts and the dedicated June is a no-show. With the help of Heather, an overweight and attractive friend of June’s, she investigates the disappearance of the missing teacher. The search leads the

I loved this sequel to Mantequero - I didn't read the blurb before I bought it (so impressed was I with Mantequero that I just bought it straight away), and at first didn't understand that it really was a sequel - ie, what happened directly afterwards.....

Really good, well worth an hour or so of anyone's time (but read the first one first!). Loved the atmosphere created about rural Spain; it sounds wonderful. Best of all - a brilliant twist I never saw coming in THE LAST LINE! Don't you just lov

I was delighted to receive a copy of this story for review because I have long been a fan of this particular writer and I thoroughly enjoyed the first story in the same series. I've waited impatiently since last summer for Mantequero 2, but the wait was well worth it. This author never disappoints.
Back in England, the school term has started but without June. No one seems to know anything about her non-appearance, and nor does anyone particularly care, except for her young colleague, Alison, who

When I first read Montequero I thought it was truly unique and chilling. Just imagine a sexy and handsome man who loves big women to death. Boy, what a way to go! Anyway, when I learned "Disappeared" (Montequero 2) was coming out, I just had to read it. Once again, I loved the concept and how the new characters tied in so well with the one from the previous book.

Alison is a teacher at Greystone School. When her colleague and mentor, June Blacker, did not report back to school after the Christmas

Okay, so the first book was good but the second was better. The first one was really short and left me wanting more. I think I was kind of Ignacio (except I didn't want anyone's fat I've got my own)....(creepy) anyways.. :)
I believe it was amazing. I was introduced to more characters and their feelings. This time the one in Ignacio's eyesight was the travel agent from the previous book. (sorry I really suck at remembering names so please don't hate my forgetfulness). So in this book, the travel

"Disappeared: Mantequero 2" stands by itself, but it is a sequel. So if you haven't read the author's shorter story, "Mantequero," I'd suggest you do that first.

A teacher has disappeared. School's in session again after the winter holiday, but Miss Blacker didn't come back and didn't let anyone know she wouldn't be there. The administration is annoyed, but no one seems to be worried about her. Only her young colleague, Alison, is concerned. Her concern leads her to investigate, and she discovers

After reading Mantequero, which explained the legend of the fat-sucking vampiric stranger of legend that haunts a remote mountain range in southern Spain, I couldn't wait for the sequel - and I was not disappointed! After her teaching colleague, June, mysteriously does not return from holiday, Alison worries something terrible has happened to a woman she likes and admires. With lots of initiative, and the help of a friendly travel agent, Alison travels to Spain, to Las Alpujarras, where June was ...more

I started reading this while at the hairdresser's, and as soon as I got home, I had to finish it right away. It is really well done -- shades of the Twilight Zone, Fright Night, and Frankenstein, a chilling mystery that put me in mind of The Woman in Black as well. If I am ever fortunate enough to visit the mountains of Spain, this is what I will think of. It would be amazing to see this story put into film. I loved the unconventional vampire, the village, and the characters' quest to find the ...more

Disappeared (Mantequero,# 2) by Jenny Twist

Miss Blacker never returned from her Christmas vacation. Allison is convinced something really bad has happened to her. Allison and her friend Heather take off to Spain to see if they can find her. Once there they hear of a legend of the Mantequero, a vampire type creature in Spain. Will the ladies find their friend?

A fantastic take on vampire stories. Allison and Heather are very likable. I also enjoyed the setting in Spain, and hearing the story of th

This sequel to Mantequero begins with Alison, a friend of June Blacker—the Mantequero’s victim of Book #1—discovering that her friend has disappeared. She enlists the help of another friend of June’s, Heather, the overweight travel agent who booked June's vacation in Spain from which she never returned. Alison and Heather both travel to Spain in an attempt to discover what happened to June, where the latter immediately draws the interest of the Mantequero, a fat-eating vampire (a real Spanish ...more

Very interesting short read. I think readers are going to love Alison and enjoy following her on her search for the missing Miss Blacker. Their are a few twists and turns and a legend that will keep readers spellbound as they follow along to uncover a mystery. The author did a great job with this compelling novel. Although I didn't read book one I don't think readers have to in order to follow the story, but I also have to say I think it will be as interesting as book two and will have readers ...more

Finally a character who loves big women. Unfortunately, he has a voracious appetite and no woman can enjoy his love for too long. Isn’t that always the way, though? I believe the best horror comes from folklore and this novel is proof. This sequel to Mantequero is chilling and seductive. Jenny delivers the frights without gory excesses. The Disappeared was a quick and delicious (no pun intended)read. Bravo.

This was a great follow up to MANTEQUERO by Jenny Twist. I actually enjoyed this story much more than the first book. Jenny writes a wonderful story putting the reader in a place where the whispered tales are real. No, I would not want to venture into the mountains for fear of MANTEQUERO, but would love to meet the people and visit the village. I highly recommend you read MANTEQUERO prior to DISAPPEARED, and read them consecutively for the full reading pleasure.

I absolutely loved this sequel to Mantequero; the story just flowed and I couldn't put it down. I have never visited Spain and Jenny's writing had me wishing that I had. This was a really excellent interpretation of a folk tale within a modern context. Bravo!

Great sequel. Really enjoyed this tying up of events in the first story. I liked that this was much longer and went into a bit more back story, as well as being long enough to get to know the new characters.
Genuinely creepy idea for a story.

My grandmother was a matriarch whom we all adored and she ran the world from her one-up and one-down house in the centre of the town. All the rest of my cousins stayed in Heckmondwike, but we moved about a lot because my father kept changing his job on account of he ...more
