(23)Evidence of Life by Barbara Taylor Sissel

Evidence of Life

Publication Date: March 26, 2013
Pages: 320

As far as Abby Bennett is concerned her life is near perfect. She is married to a very successful attorney, Nick.  They have two wonderful kids, teenager, Lindsey and Jake, their son, is pre-law.  It is a warm Spring day and Nick and Lindsey are heading off to the Hill Country for a camping trip, just like many other Spring days before.

What Abby and Nick did not count on was the freak Spring storm that caused the worst flooding in decades.  When Nick and Lindsey never make it to their campsite everyone assumes the worst, that they were swept away in the floods.  But what about that call from a crying Lindsey that disconnected before Abby could get any information out of her.  And what about the matchbook with another woman's name and number written on the cover that she found in Nick's things? And what about the strange things happening at their house in the months after the flood?  Even when all of Abby's family and friends start to get concerned with her belief that they are still alive, she still believes.  Will she ever find out the truth about what happened to her husband and daughter, and more importantly, are they still alive?

Evidence of Life was a unique kind of mystery. You heart aches for Abby because she just can't seem to come to terms with the loss of her husband and daughter, yet as the story goes on, you also start to question what really happened to Nick and Lindsey.  I liked how her friends rallied around her, but it annoyed me a bit, too, when they were really questioning her sanity.

Bottom line, Evidence of Life is a bit of a page turner. Easy to read and well written it goes by pretty fast.  If you are looking for a good mystery, pick up Evidence of Life and let me know what you think!

Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
