My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great read about disappearing. Renowned country musician Hunt Masterston mysteriousky disappeared eighteen years ago. On the search for his father, Clay Masterston heads to Angel Beach to follow up a lead of a sighting. As his nsw next door neighbour, Harlie is soon drawn into his world and wants to help him. But it seems more than one person wants to find Hunt and as events unfold more secrets are revealed. Can you truly disappear forever?
a great read. Well developed plot with twists and furnx. Well developed characters like Harlie standing up for herself but caring underneath or Clay as a cocky musicisn but kind underneath. Great cast of supporting characters like supportive brother Tom or the optimistic Buck. The use of suspense was drawn out to perfection as details were revealed slowly to make you wnat to keep reading to find Hunt and discover why he went missing.
i loved the visual detail throughout the novel in the sense of the wild coast withthe cliffs and the sea and sand and the storms and seagulls to vibidly paint the picture for the reader and give a love to the wild nature that is psrt of home. Or the description of the bakery with its gentle and homely soft colours and chairs, with scents and display cases of cakes so vivid it was as if you were actually there.Or the feel of a little town with its small shops where everyone knows eachother.
i also adored the portrayal of the homeless people treated with kindness as people to be respected and helped when they are just down on their luck was emotive and beautifully written as they added character and a sweet tone to the novel. And also how they were encouraged fo pursue their passions like Buck with his music or Lisa with her paintings was a lovely touch.Overall, a great read and i would give it five stars.
