Come Home

Finished May 28
Come Home by Lisa Scottoline, read by Maggi-Meg Reed

Another great thriller with an everyday mom at the centre. Jill Farrow is a pediatrician, engaged to be married, and proud mom of her 13-year-old precocious swim team leader daughter, Megan. But when her ex-stepdaughter Abby shows up drunk and distraught to tell her that her ex-husband is dead, she finds that she still has unfinished business from that marriage. As we discover, the marriage ended abruptly, with her ex cutting her off from contact with Abby and her sister, Victoria. She finds that she still feels like they are her children and wants to figure out what really happened with her ex's death and what really happened between the two of them. She can't move forward until she figures out what went wrong in this previous relationship.
As she delves deeper into things, she finds that things look suspicious and lead her into danger and threaten her new family.
With twists and turns and thrilling moments, this fast-paced novel takes us on a whirlwind journey of discovery by a woman who learns more about herself as she figures out this mystery.
Scottoline always raises interesting questions, about relationships, about feelings, and about women.


  1. yet another great review, and sounds like a good choice. MY list of your books is ever growing, I'll have to live a long time to catch up.

  2. I'll have to live a long time to get through my TBR list (not to mention the book piles already around my house!) too Irene.
    Happy reading.
