REVIEW: WHERE ARE YOU NOW?, BY MARY HIGGINS CLARK

81ZJj78NV9L._SL1500_
Ten years ago, Charles MacKenzie, Jr., (Mack) disappeared suddenly, and for no apparent reason. But every year on Mother’s Day, he calls to report that he is all right.

Except in this last call, his sister Carolyn, a young lawyer, takes the phone and says that she is determined to find him.

The next day, a note, supposedly from Mack, is placed in the offering basket at the neighborhood church, urging Carolyn not to look for him.

As Carolyn begins searching in earnest, a young woman goes missing after leaving a club in the Village called The Woodshed, owned by Nick DeMarco, who was one of Mack’s college roommates.

Suddenly police are starting to look more closely at other disappearances, and soon both Nick, and possibly even Mack, are under suspicion.

Where Are You Now?: A Novel is a page-turning mystery that had me guessing all the way through. I had my suspicions about some of the characters, but it wasn’t until nearly the end that I realized who was behind everything that had happened.

Carolyn was a likeable character, and I even warmed up to her friend Nick, despite the suspicions of the police. At one point, they were even suspicious of Carolyn. I enjoy books that surprise me with twists and turns, and this one did that. There were a few predictable elements, but I enjoyed the book enough to award 4.0 stars.
