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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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

A wonderful read with twists and turns I did not see coming. The end was a …what the heck Just happened to the ending I was ready for?!?
Abby is your average wife and mom sending her husband and daughter off on a camping trip one day and then wondering would she ever see them alive the next.
Abby and her husband Nick live in the Texas Hill country and with reports of flash flooding coming in before Nick and Lindsey even leave for the camping trip starts the tension building, you know something is going to happen…but what?
Her family is feared lost in the flood, with help from friends, family and law enforcement Abby starts to put together a picture that is not exactly what she was thinking. Does she really know her husband or her friends, or even herself for that matter? This book had one of the creepiest characters, or I should say siblings I have read about in a while, really had me going into “nail biting territory.” A fun page turner that kept me up late into the night.
