Publisher's Summary

Delia Hopkins has led a charmed life. Raised in rural New Hampshire by her widowed father, Andrew, she now has a young daughter, a handsome fiancé, and her own search-and-rescue bloodhound, which she uses to find missing persons. But as Delia plans her wedding, she is plagued by flashbacks of a life she can't recall. And then a policeman knocks on her door, revealing a secret that changes the world as she knows it.

What happens when you learn you are not who you thought you were? When the people you've loved and trusted suddenly change before your eyes? When getting your deepest wish means giving up what you've always taken for granted? Vanishing Acts explores how life as we know it might not turn out the way we imagined; how doing the right thing could mean doing the wrong thing; and how the memory we thought had vanished could return as a threat.

    "Hated all the characters."

    This was one of the worst books I've ever read. Kept reading hoping the ending would be good. Nope.

    "Predictable"

    Story
    "Love Jodi Picoult"

    As always Jodi Picoult keeps you guessing until the very end. This book skated the fine line of right and wrong.

    The only thing that bothered me was the pronouncing of some words. I live in Arizona and quite a few of the things they pronounced were wrong. I had to focus to overlook it.

    Story
    "Dragged at times"

    Storyline was good but Dragged at times. Too much detail at times. Didn't enjoy the detailed description of life in jail for Andrew and ultimately towards the end of that section had to fast forward though it. Narration was not the best quality performance- there were many times could hear several narrators take a breath or swallow.

    "Just okay story"

    The story was somewhat of a letdown for me after seeing the other reviews. It was predictable and boring. The readers/narrators did a good job, but still it fell flat.

    Story
    "Too many voices"

    Plot was strong but it lacked flow by switching characters and was written first person. Disappointed as I love the author's work. I don't know if it felt so disjointed because it was an audio book.

    "Once Again?"

    I understand this book is a new release, but I really think I have heard this story before, down to the pharmacist in prison with his new profession. I find that part hard to believe.

    I listen to a lot of this authors books . I think this book was pieces of other books snipped and pasted.
    I felt robbed so I returned it.
    Post a note if u think it's a remake please.😼

    Story
    "Painfully slow"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I would not recommend it to anyone.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Some true crime.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    The female voice was nasal and annoying.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The premise and the mystery was interesting, but not enough to listen past the 6 hour mark.


    Any additional comments?

    Very disappointing story, weak characterization, and far-fetched story telling. What 6th grade boy falls in love for life or thinks romantically like an adult?

    "enjoyable"

    I really enjoyed the story but a couple of the men's voices ruined the character for me.
