Everyone in the small town of Denton is searching for Isabelle Coleman, a missing 17-year-old girl. All they've found so far is her phone and another girl they didn't even know was missing. Mute and completely unresponsive to the world around her, it's clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Detective Josie Quinn can get from her is a name: Ramona. Currently suspended from the force for misconduct, Josie takes matters into her own hands as the name leads her to evidence linking the two girls.

So, I am new to Lisa Regan. I listened to Finding Claire Fletcher and fell in love. I love Lisa’s writing and as important, I loved the narrator Amy Landon...she did an excellent job! I normally don’t really care for female narrators but she was great!!! I then listened to Losing Leah Holloway which was also fantastic. I wanted more. So I used a credit to buy Vanishing Girls.....this narrator is horrific. Truly bad. I could barely get through the entire book. The story is great but I’m so disappointed in this audio version. And then to find out that this isn’t the only Lisa Regan book that she narrates. She makes every single character sound like a snotty teenager and I can’t even get past all of the mispronounced words. At first I thought I was just not listening close enough....nope, maybe she was trying to do some sort of accent? I don’t know but why???? I want Amy Landon back. She is amazing!! Such a bummer. Ruined perfectly good writing.

When Claire sees a car full of children careen into a river, she rushes to the rescue. But the driver, a mother named Leah Holloway, prefers to drown. For Claire and her ex, Detective Connor Parks, it doesn't add up. What would motivate a woman with a beautiful family and a successful career to resort to such unspeakable extremes? What Connor finds out confirms Claire's suspicions of something dreadful behind Holloway's picture-perfect facade: a link between the terrified mother and a serial strangler targeting Sacramento soccer moms.

Second book in this two book series was just as good as the first. I really enjoyed it. Lisa’s writing is just up my alley! Not overly complicated but not so simple that I was bored. It kept my attention and a twist is always great! I will be reading all of her books.

Newly divorced and with his career in jeopardy, Detective Connor Parks takes solace in the arms of a beautiful woman he meets at a bar. The next morning, Claire Fletcher is gone, leaving nothing behind but an address and a decade-old mystery.

Buddhism is all about training the mind, and boot camp is an ideal training method for this generation's short attention span. The chapters in this audiobook can be listened in any order, and are simple and easy to understand. Each story, inspirational quote, and teaching offers mindfulness-enhancing techniques that anyone can relate to. You don't need to be a Buddhist to find the Buddha's teachings motivational. As the Dalai Lama says, "Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are."

This is the first book in my quest for inner peace and Boy has it gotten me started. I cannot wait to listen to it again a couple more times....then onto the next in his series. I’m so grateful to my sister for suggesting this.
