The Vanishing Type (2022) Ellery Adams (Secret, Book, & Scone Society)

The Vanishing TypeOne of the things I particularly like about this story is the variety of the characters within. And that those traits don’t define the characters: Sheldon is ace but also Hispanic and Jewish and someone who suffers from chronic pain, and also someone who tries to bring those around him joy.

“My anxiety is through the roof. Can you call them?” Sheldon pleaded. “If they forgot about our order, or the kitchen caught on fire, or the desserts fell out of the truck and are now scattered all over Main Street, I need to know. Argh!”

And although Nora is slowly becoming far more than her own past (as are all her friends) she continues to own that past and her own mistakes–redemption is a large part of the story.

The mystery was decent, and took multiple swerves to keep you guessing.

I will say that although most of the characters get redemption arcs, the bad guy here is rather flat and one note. But that’s possibly because much of the story is dedicated to the healing of another of the main characters.
