Today I’m featuring a review book that I am currently reading – Evidence of Life by Barbara Taylor Sissel.

On the last ordinary day of her life before her family went off for the weekend, Abby made a real breakfast – French toast with maple syrup and bacon. It was penance, the least she could do, given how utterly delighted she was at the prospect of being left on her own for two whole days to do as she pleased. It would sicken her late, in the aftermath of what happened, that she could so covet the prospect of solitude, but in that last handful or ordinary hours, she was full of herself, her silly plans.

I started this book a few days ago and was immediately hooked from the first page. As I read more and more into the book I realize that things are not at all like they seem – and I am DYING to find out what exactly is going on with this family!

Based on this opening – would you keep reading? It sure caught my interest quickly 🙂
