    I first thought that I would start off this review stating that reading Amanda Quick is a guilty pleasure of mine. Then, I thought that I'm not at all guilty about it, vice versa to be honest. However, Quick's books are definitely a pleasure to read. THE OTHER LADY VANISHES is the s...

    I've not read anything by this author before and wasn't aware that it's part of a series. It was done quite well as a stand-alone. It was like watching a black and white noir film, Ms. Quick did an excellent job with the dialog and setting for the pre-war era. I look forward to reading...

    Sweet and a bit suspenseful, The Other Lady Vanishes is a fun read with a murder mystery twist. This is a page turner for me as I tried to figure out what was going on. I wanted to figure out Adelaide's story as well as who committed the murder. As the secrets are slowly revealed, I'm ...

    One of the things I most enjoy about Amanda Quick's novels is the formulaic predictability: When I select to spend a Friday evening with one of these books, I know what I'm getting and know I will enjoy it thoroughly. The first book in this new Burning Cove series (The Girl Who Kne...

    The Other Lady Vanishes is a rather enjoyable historical mystery set in 1930s California and the world of Hollywood's rich and famous. This book is the second book in Burning Cove series, which I didn't know when I started reading it, but it can be read as a stand-alone. I didn't feel ...

    The whole escape from the insane asylum thing was interesting but I found the romance a bit underwhelming which is a bad sign when it comes to Amanda's books, her characters usually manage to grip me from the very start. On the other hand, Raina and Luther make a big appearance and ...

    The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick created a "book hangover" for me. So as soon as I finished it, I immediately went to the first page and read it again. I've been reading Ms. Krentz's books for over 30 years under all of her names and am rarely disappointed. This book was no exce...

    The story begins as Adelaide Blake escapes a private sanitarium. Her time there was dark and Quick shared a chilling story while shedding light on experimentaldrugs and the practice of sending unwanted family members off to mental hospitals. Both threads were chillingand led to mur...

    *The 3rd star is a "benefit of the doubt" star.* I won a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. I have to start out by saying that I am not the type of person who should be reading uncorrected proofs (which is what my copy is). I discovered how much misspellings, missing word...

    I would have liked a little more romance in the romance vs plot ratio, but I found this pretty enjoyable. And the cover is absolutely striking. **Read for the Happily Ever After square in Ripped Bodice Bingo (and because the library coughed up my hold at the right time)** ...

    The Other Lady Vanishes by Amanda Quick is the 2nd book in her Burning Cove series. This story takes place during the 1930?s in the small town of Burning Cove, California. Some of the characters we met in the first book have secondary roles, as we return to Burning Cove. We meet ...

    4 stars. Quite an interesting plot with AQ's typical male and female leads. Didn't have as much of the glitz and glamour of the golden age of Hollywood as I would've liked, but the "technology" of the day such as payphone booths, long distance operators and open-top automobiles prov...

    As satisfying as many of this author?s novels: romantic suspense at its best. I truly enjoyed reading it. The protagonists Adelaide and Jake are both people with a past. Both are mature and cautious, both battle their own demons. Neither trusts easily. Eventually, both find succor in...

    3.5 stars It opens with murder and a daring escape. A promising start. Adelaide has a lot on her plate - reinvention, hiding, building a new life and taking control. Jake Truett was supposed to be mysterious but came off as bland. The murder methods were interesting and varied. ...

    Thank you Berkley Publishing for this ARC. This is a fun, quick read. A good mix of suspense, romance and a wonderful historical setting. This is book two in a series, but can easily be read as a stand alone. Adelaide is a tearoom waitress with a very big secret. She meets Jake who has...

    Reading Adelaide and Jake's story reminded me that Amanda Quick/Jayne Anne Krentz/Jayne Castle always manages to include story lines that highlight power imbalances and injustices in society based on gender, social class, and sexual orientation. Set in the era of the Hollywood stud...

    Amanda Quick's second foray into the world of the 1930s is even better than the first. I was caught up the mystery from the beginning, and even when I thought all was told there was yet a little more to getting the whole story. There were twists and turns, and each time I thought "what...

    This one was just okay. It moved at a steady but very slow pace and I never really felt the passion between the main characters. It was also strangely written, with bafflingly stilted dialogue between people who refused to speak in contractions, and a ton of repetition. We must have be...
