My first book by TK Leigh and I. Was. Hooked !
It's a fairly controversial subject, considering the presently unstable political environment. So I'd think it is a very brave attempt by her. But she's done an excellent job !
Every parents' absolute Worst nightmare - when their darling child goes missing . Olivia and Alexander Burnham go through this torturous scenario when their 8 year old Melanie i ...more

I have been looking forward to this book since it was announced and it did not disappoint.
I don't know how to begin reviewing this book. I had the privilege to read it early and I'm so grateful that I'm beyond words... Reuniting with my man again was the highlight of my year, and doing that through T.K.'s words - do I need to say more???
Vanished is not a romantic love story. It's a ...more
I don't know if I have the words to explain how much I loved this book. It was sad, exciting and so much more. This book was so true to what women deal with in Islamic culture. This book is the story of the people that sacrifice their lives to help them and the sometimes brutal consequences they endure. I don't want to give any spoilers. This is a must read for everyone!
For those of you who ha ...more
I have to disclose, I haven’t read any of the other books in the Beautiful Mess series. (However, I did download the first one immediately after I finished Vanished.) So, I wasn’t familiar with the characters or any of their backstories when I dove into this.
To say I loved this book would be a gross understatement. This story was phenomenal! T.K. Leigh grabbed my attention with merely a few paragraphs, and held me captive right up unti ...more
This story was intensely suspenseful and kept me guessing with the turn of every page. There were so many players and I honestly couldn't guess who was behind it all. So many suspects. But through it all, the love that Alex and Olivia shared was just as strong as ever and it was what propelled them to move forward and keep fighting until their little girl ...more
Wow. Just wow. I am in awe at how incredible this book is. The writing is flawless and the book seamlessly flows. There is so much going on in the book and yet it all intertwines together and before you know it the story is over and you want more. This is one engrossing book.
TK Leigh has once again written one amazing story. There is darkness to the tale. We get a very real look at some very serious topics. We are enlightened by some of the issues in our ...more
Alexander Burnham is back. And it's not under the best circumstances. His daughter is missing and he sees himself going down the same road his father did. We see a different side to his and Olivia's relationship in Vanished and I loved it. This story itself only takes place over a few days, but through some flashbacks we are able to get the whole picture and completely understand the situation.
Rayne has hit rock bottom. H ...more

So have you read The Beautiful Mess? Well this is later on in years with Olivia and Alex. You hope for happily ever after … this one is going to kind of rip your heart out. I know right??!?!
This is obviously not a love story like maybe we are used to but its more of a suspense, bring you into partial reality of events and things concerning in our society using two characters that we loved in a previous series. Now .. this deals with a kidnapping of a child. So having said ...more
Let me start by saying I'm only giving this book 3.5 stars. It wasn't a bad book but it was borderline boring. Before anyone starts yelling at me for this, remember, this is MY honest review.
The story was long and drawn out, containing a great deal of fluff. It also had me confused but not in a way that I was happy about. I had to reread a few sections because it didn't make sense to me the first time.
Being a mom, I hope to never to have to face ...more
**Carla's Four Star Review

Doesn't surprise me as TK Leigh always delivers a winning read. But Vanished stands apart from all the others!
Intense, thrilling and exciting,I was totally captivated by this suspenseful read!
Alexander and Olivia are back ten years later.
Settled with his family, richer and still madly in love with Olivia, it was supposed to be their time to celebrate, but money can't guarantee safety and protection. Investigating a serial murderer leads to the unthinkable.

I have to say that I enjoyed this book. I didn't really love or hate it. With that being said if you love a good suspenseful, mystery that will have you guessing until the end , then this your book.
I must confess that I haven't read The Beautiful Mess Series but I felt like I could still connect to the story and the characters. I felt that Ms. Leigh wrote a truly gripping and suspense story that others would truly enjoy.

This book was exhilarating. We dive back in the Burnham world ten years later and nothing has slowed down. Alex has the life he has worked for, everything as it should be, until now. An old colleagues sister is found murdered and his daughter has been kidnapped. She has vanished.
from that moment forward this book is non stop. We jump POV for the first half between the kidnappers and the Burnhams. In doing that T.K. gives the book so much more depth than if it was a single POV....more
Landon and Alexander go way back to their days in the military. Alexander runs a security business and that entails much more than just typical security. There's Landon overseas doing humanitarian work for Alex. W ...more
