Description

"This thrilling testament to a mother's relentless love may well be Scottoline's best novel to date."-Library Journal (starred review)

Jill Farrow is a suburban mom who has finally gotten her and her daughter's lives back on track after a divorce. She loves being a pediatrician and is about to remarry, while her daughter, Megan, is a happily over-scheduled thirteen-year-old. But Jill's life is turned upside down when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up and delivers shocking news: Jill's ex-husband is dead. Abby insists that he was murdered-and pleads with Jill to help find his killer. Jill reluctantly agrees to make a few inquiries, and soon discovers that the story doesn't add up...As she digs deeper, her actions threaten to rip apart her new family, destroy their hard-earned happiness, and even endanger her own life. Yet how can Jill turn her back on a child she loves and once called her own? What are the limits of love, loss, and family?

"Relentless...jaw-dropping."-David Baldacci

    Okay so I was on the fence about this book. I made the purchase anyways & boy am I upset that I did! This book was NOT what I expected it to be! πŸ‘Ž I loved her book "Keep Quite" now that's an amazing book!! πŸ‘πŸ‘ but this one here NOT SO MUCH, being the same author as "Keep Quite" I was hopeful that this "Come Home" would meet my expectations as the other book but it wasn't! Bad purchase on my part πŸ˜”

    The first book I read by Lisa was "look again" and ever since I haven't been able to stop reading her work. Maybe the fact that I'm a mother and these books hit that truth of how much we worry and care for our children I don't know, regardless her work is done beautifully and this book is no different. Her trademark of finishing each chapter in a way that makes you NEED to keep going, kept me on this book and I finished it in 2days. I couldn't put it down as all her other books. Wonderful read and as always shows how strong a woman can be and is! Definitely a must read as all her books. My next one, Think Twice. Awesome read!

    I really didn't like this book at all. The characters were pathetic, the story line was totally unbelievable & I barely could finish it because I didn't care what happened to anyone by the end. The main character, Jill, was a joke & not believable or likable at all. I have read some of this author's other books, but this one was terrible. Don't waste your money or time.

    Very overwrought, way too much dumb dialogue. Limited plot, limited characters. I had to flip through pages to even finish. Her worst yet.

    The writing drove me a little crazy. She repeats things over and over and the female characters are spineless and emotional wrecks. The story line was good but I had a hard time getting through the amateur feeling writing.
