Review: The Other Lady Vanishes

The Other Lady Vanishes The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Other Lady Vanishes is the second book in Quick's Burning Cove series. The series itself deals with a small resort town in California where the height of Hollywood glamour like to hang out and relax from their grueling careers. In this novel, a female patient from an insane asylum named Adelaide becomes the center of attention when she pairs up with mysterious import/export professional, Jake Truett. It's a classic whodunit story with all of the gritty details.

Although I like this book just as much as the first one, like the first one it goes on a little too long. If every character would stop repeating details and explaining the whole story to each other, it could easily be fifty pages shorter. Other than that, it is a fun story that is reminiscent of classic Hollywood noir, only without the production code getting in the way of a good story.
