Review: Vanishing Point by Lisa Harris

3.5 Stars!
This is the seventh of Lisa Harris's novels that I've read. I have been hooked on the Nikki Boyd Files series since the start of book one and have been eagerly awaiting the revelation of what really happened to Nikki's sister Sarah! So needless to say Vanishing Point was one of the books I was most anticipating in 2017. 
Unfortunately, I'm sorry to say that Vanishing Point just fell flat for me and left me feeling quite disappointed. I liked the main characters Garrett and Jordan, I felt for them and all the tough things they faced in life, but I never really connected to them and I don't really know why. The story was good, definitely a page turner and I read it in less than two days, but it seemed that up until the last fifty or seventy five pages or so this book seemed to be lacking the edge-of-your-seat suspense and action that usually fills this author's books. I really liked the unique way this story was told, meaning all the large jumps forward in time, I had been wondering how that would work and I think the author pulled it off beautifully! 
The writing often felt flat and a tad bit disjointed and unfinished to me, which made the book somewhat difficult to read at times and made me a bit sad because I know the amazing writing this author is capable of, as a writer myself I know firsthand that "All writing is rewriting"  and I kind of wish this book had gone through a few more edits to really make it shine! 
I love that we got to see Nikki and Tyler and got updated on their lives, but at the same time as that made me really happy I was also very disappointed and a bit let down by the ending.
I highly recommend the three previous books in the Nikki Boyd series. And I do recommend Vanishing Point, even though it didn't become a favorite for me I am sure lots of people will absolutely love it and review it so please don't judge it just on my review. 
I am looking forward to reading more of Lisa Harris's books and I am hoping to reread the first three Nikki Boyd books sometime in the future! 

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. No review required. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
