About the Author

Yessi Smith lives in South Florida with her husband, seven year old son and newborn baby. She is also owned by a neurotic Border Collie and "ferocious" Rottweiler. She has a Bachelor's degree in Business Management and a Master's in Human Resource Management and has held several jobs, from picking up dog poop to upper management positions. And now she hopes to leave the business world behind so she can live full time in a world that does not exist until she places her fingers on a keyboard and brings them to fruition.

At the start of Life Interrupted by Yessi Smith, Holly isn't even sure that her name is Holly. That's what the kindly old man calls her, but what does he know?

In the midst of an avalanche of questions for which she has too few answers within her grasp, she struggles to hold on to her sanity, to her grip on reality, meanwhile, the man who held her prisoner for the last six months, and evidently tortured her over the duration is still out there somewhere. Possibly running for the hills, possibly waiting around the next corner to snatch her back again, the only thing anyone knows for sure is that he's some kind of monster. Something in him has broken in such a way that he could do such a thing in the first place.

I simply can't say too much about the storyline without giving away significant spoilers, so I'll stop there. What I will say is that this book provides a fascinating glimpse of the line people sometimes walk between being sane and insane, between being human and being what we reassuringly label an inhuman monster.

Participating in Holly's journey as she navigates her way from complete ignorance through to a growing awareness of who she is as a person and who she's prepared to try and be, we see her grow, even if the new Holly has no conscious memory of being the old Holly.

The path of her journey has her interacting with a wide range of fascinating characters, from that old man at her bedside to the two BFFs who can't stop expecting Holly to be just plain old Holly, to the two men who enter her life with no expectations from the old Holly, simply accepting the new Holly at face value.

There's love that plays a major role in how Holly's recovery progresses, and love that forces a show down as everything comes together.

This book is so appropriately titled it is shocking. I started reading it.....life became interrupted. I didn't want to stop. THIS BOOK! It has so many different elements that the author, Yessi Smith, blended effortlessly together. There is suspense, mystery, horror, and romance. Strong character development...right down to the dog, Leeloo, who all animal lovers will love.

The prologue takes us through a terrifying run in the woods. It is spine chilling. Even though it is only two pages, it completely drew me in to this story. I had to know what was happening and why.

Who, what, why, and where? These are questions that Holly cannot answer. She doesn't even remember her own name. She has to rely on the kind old man who tells her that he is her Poppa. He makes her feel safe. He takes care of her until she is stronger. However, she isn't convinced she will ever be the person she use to be.
"I’m back in their lives, but I’m a different version of who they remember. They remember a vibrant, fearless, spontaneous girl. They’re left with me."

It is hard to describe the story without giving away parts of the plot. I can tell you it is a must read. A read that will run you through all the emotions. You will feel like you are right there with Holly, as she tries to remember life and what interrupted hers.

Thank you, Yessi Smith, for interrupting life with this fabulous story. I can't wait for more.

I broke my cardinal rule with this one and bought a book because of the cover (which, I gotta say, is stunning). Well, that, and I saw the tons of 5-star reviews, which, after having read the book, I just don’t understand! This book confused and frustrated me to no end. Props to the author for a fluid style and lovely prose, but when it comes to the actual story, I was sorely disappointed. Time and again. I kept reading (skimming, later on) just to see it end, to see if it would get better. But it didn’t.

Let me break some of this down (possible vague spoilers in the last section):

For the first third of the book, I thought I was reading a YA story. The characters sounded, thought, were treated as and referred to in a way that suggested the heroine and her friends were teenagers, and I was okay with that. I was intrigued by this horrible thing having happened to her, and this young girl dealing with it to get her life back together. The only clue that this wasn’t so was literally the references to her age, like the author was trying to remind me that, wait, she’s 24! I didn’t buy it.

Then the heroine changed location, and suddenly the book turned VERY adult. From one chapter to the next, the character suddenly became an adult and started acting that way. To be honest, it was jarring, and it completely threw me off. It’s like part way through an amazing Young Adult story, the author decided to change genres into adult suspense, did the barest minimum to alter what was already there (as in, added age references to the previous chapters) and left me wondering… what the heck??

It kind of went downhill from there. This book presented a town and people totally inept in coping with a crime. The whole time I was reading I kept asking myself, Why?

Unlike most dark books have read, Life Interrupted provided me with a story that took me in a direction I was not expecting. While other dark stories tend to focus on the breaking and destruction of the characters, this author has that embedded into the character. I felt the story was more character focused and emotion driven. While the story itself is dark and can be very brutal at times, for me at least this was not where I felt the author put all of her focus. She provided enough background for the reader to understand the horror the characters have experienced but I did not see that as the story itself. For me at least, the story’s main focus was more about how the character emerged and molded herself. How the fear, torture and desperation allowed her to gain her future and life. The author shared not only the devastation of destruction, the helplessness of the workings of a person’s mind, the efforts to survive and the will to die. There were many surprises. Shocking and what some may find offensive abuse of one’s mind, body and soul. It was also heartwarming. It encompassed the compassion and discomfort of family and friends. It showcased two very different views into the definition of family. The author spins a dark tale in a very unique way.
