    1930s California with a Touch of Gothic!

    When I picked up this book, I expected to be transported back to the interesting times of the 1930s California, specifically Hollywood and its “retreat” up the coast, Burning Cove. I never expected to find myself in an insane asylum with our heroine escaping for her life! That heart-pounding opening chapter sets the stage for Adelaide Blake’s story in The Other Lady Vanishes, a great mix of mystery, a tinge of gothic horror (those asylum scenes beckon for me to add that) and a very satisfying romance! Once again, Ms. Quick immerses us in 1930s Burning Cove, where the Hollywood stars retreat for some well-scripted “privacy” in plain sight. Brilliantly layering mystery upon mystery, I found that there was a lot of riveting threads of this story that I was not entirely sure would come together to reveal a satisfactory conclusion. But I needed to have more faith in the author, as this book may be my new favorite from the historical-writing side of Jayne Ann Krentz. You get the jist of the story from the blurb, so I will not belabor the plot. Be assured that there was just enough of the trademark character quirkiness and wit that I love, especially between Adelaide and Jack. Our Burning Cove regulars were in attendance as well, with Oliver Ward mentioned, Irene Glasson Ward making some cameos and the mysterious Luther Pell entering a number of scenes. And I loved seeing that Raina Kirk found her way to Burning Cove - I wondered what was to come of her after The Girl Who Knew Too Much. I do not blame Jack for falling in love with Adelaide and Adelaide with him - I would have fallen for him too. All in all, a fun, fabulous read!

    Take me back to the 1930's

    Take me back to the 1930’s… that is exactly what Amanda Quick has done. There is a drug called Daydream being made that causes hallucinations. Patient B, Adelaide, is forced to take these drugs when her husband(?) forces her into a sanitarium for the mentally ill so that he can take control of her inheritance. The amazing part? Adelaide escapes that sanitarium. She escapes and makes a life for herself in the small town of Burning Cove, California and meets Jake Truett. I love the town of Burning Cove. I questioned every person who lived or visited the town. It seemed everyone had a secret. They had a reason to be in Burning Cove besides just visiting for the fun of it. It was interesting to try to guess what was going to happen, who was going to do what next, and who was guilty of what. Everyone is guilty of something, just some things are worse than others. The characters in this book are great. There are so many quirks, so many background stories, and so interesting. I cheered for some, booed others, while trying to guess who is who within the story. I wanted to figure out how they fit together, how their stories would intertwine, and how it would all end. Amanda Quick is a talented author. She is now on my must-read list and I am excited to read more from her. I definitely recommend picking up The Other Lady Vanishes and falling into the exciting world of Adelaide Black

    Another interesting story.

    Such interesting plots, charaters and twists. As usual the story flows, the charaters surprise and then the whole thing twists and you're sitting there saying "did not see that coming" and then it's over.
