Vanish in Plain Sight by Marta Perry Reviewed By happyruby

Link Morgan has returned to his home and family in Lancaster County. Link has inherited his uncle’s old farmhouse and is in the process of preparing the property for sale. Link is planning to sell the farm and move. Link is knocking down the paneling in a later addition to the farmhouse and discovers an old stained and battered suitcase concealed in the wall. The suitcase contains women’s clothing, including an Amish woman’s black apron and a white prayer kapp. The suitcase also included a photograph of a woman and child. The child is about four or five years old. Link contacts the Spring Township police. The police arrive and take possession of the suitcase.

One of the officers recognizes the woman as Barbara Angelo. Barbara was an Amish woman who came to town to visit relatives. Barbara met and fell in love with Russ Angelo. The couple married and had a daughter, Marisa. The town gossip spread around that Barbara could no longer live in peace away from her Amish family and had gone home to them leaving her husband and her daughter.

Marisa Angelo had grown into a beautiful woman and is very successful as an illustrator of children’s books. When Marisa was contacted by the police, she returned to claim her mother’s suitcase and try to find out what had really happened to her mother. The Amish in the area were not willing to discuss the matter with her. It is only with the help of Link’s mother and Link’s family that she finally began to piece together what really happened so many years ago when she had lost her mother.

The main flaw that I found in the book was the fact that Barbara found herself in danger when she overheard a meeting that was taking place at Link’s Uncle’s home but the purpose of that meeting was never revealed in the book. Overall, the book was an enjoyable read.

About happyruby

HappyRuby is a combination of the names of two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels that I owned - Happy Talk and Karri's Ruby, both deceased now but I do have a dog and cat. I live in the Midwest so enjoy a change of seasons. I am an office manager for two plants that process pet food ingredients. I worked a number of years as an office manager for a law office. I only work part-time now which gives me more time to read. My daughter lives in W. VA and is a huge fan of mystery - the darker the better. My other daughter is into reading romance and my granddaughter loves fantasy. I very much enjoy reading mystery, hard-boiled or cozy.
