Missing and Replaced by Faith Byrd is a straightforward, no frills, well written story. Chuck and Kate are happily married with two sons - Jason, a Deputy U.S. Marshal, and Levi, a married man with two little girls. Chuck and Levi leave on a hunting trip, hoping to shoot some turkey and have some fun. Kate and her daughter-in-law are at home doing girl things. Chuck and Levi separate to surround a field of turkeys to get a better chance at bringing one home. Chuck takes a bad fall; he aimlessly staggers about, reaches the road, and is lucky to have Keith pass by and offer to drive him back to the campsite. Levi waits a very long time and when Chuck does not return, he notifies the local police and his brother Jason. As the search begins, the family bonds together in searching, not knowing if Chuck is alive or dead.

Faith Byrd has written a story that is clear-cut and uncomplicated. The reader knows from the start what has happened to Chuck, so there is no mystery, but lots and lots of emotion and concern are present in Missing and Replaced. I could not help but feel Kate’s fear, anxiety, pain and joy on each and every page. Missing and Replaced is a quick and easy read but a very, very good one. Missing and Replaced has a different spin than the everyday mystery, but instead goes straight to the drama of the situation. I highly recommend Missing and Replaced and look forward to reading more by Faith Byrd.
