Disappearance: A Premonitions Mystery

Gracie from PREMONITIONS has returned with her visions. This time, though, she sees a murder from the murderer's eyes. If that isn't creepy enough, Gracie's father comes back into her life after 13 years of not seeing or hearing from him. She's still struggling with grief from her mother's death two years ago, and adjusting to living with her aunt Shay and cousin Diego.

With all this going on, Gracie is determined to solve the murder plaguing her senses. She tries going where the victim went to catch a vision from things he touched, with startling success. But each time she uncovers a clue, the danger moves closer to her --- and she accidentally unearths secrets about her father, her aunt, and her past. Visions do not solve all these issues, but she learns to let them lead her in the right direction.

Diego and Shay are supportive of Gracie's efforts, even as she considers going to live with her father. But who is he? Gracie's dad becomes another mystery to solve. 

DISAPPEARANCE is a definite page-turner. Readers will be drawn into the mysteries around Gracie and her community as they follow her unexpected visions. This is a rare case of the sequel being even better than the original. The series is gaining momentum and hopefully will continue.
