I had the pleasure of getting to know Barry when he did a guest post on my blog about his award winning travel book, I Guess We Missed the Boat. Impressed by his writing and personality, I jumped at the chance to review his latest book, The Vanishing Wife. Although I am a bit late in posting this review, I loved reading the book and here are my thoughts on it.
The Vanishing Wife had me intrigued because of its blurb. The cover is nothing very special but th ...more
What I enjoyed about this story was the interesting plot. This is a mystery suspense thriller that will bring a reader in and make them want to finish the book as soon as possible.
There are some aspects of the story that I think could have been stronger. There was not a lot of dialogue between many of the characters. The story is told from first and third person which was confusing at times because one character would go from first then t ...more
*Received for an honest review*
For some reason I also lent the next few books (with the third being from the title "Remote Access" my main interest), but will probably skim reviews and blurb and might return them back to KU unread.
Currently at 9% percent and since the beginning it looks like DNF to me.
No action, little suspense, a lot of information I do not care about.
From here on I will FF, only skim passages.
Does not get more interesting, at 25%, most skimmed, I think is book is ...more

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a great mystery! Started reading last night until the wee hours OF the morning and got up today and finished it! It kept your attention all the way through the book trying to figure out what was going on! Great book!!
A man wakes up and his wife is no longer in bed with him. No note, nothing, she's gone. He doesn't have any idea as to where to start looking for her and above all he can't imagine why she left him.
An excellent thriller to keep you up late reading, to find out how it ends
