Suspenseful Listen

Finished June 11
No Place Like Home by Mary Higgins Clark, read by Jan Maxwell
When Liza was a child of eleven, she woke to hear her mother yelling and found her stepfather holding her mother against the wall. She went for the gun she knew was in her mother's beside table and held it on her stepfather demanding that he release her mother. He threw her mother at her and the gun went off. Her mother was dead and she raised the gun and kept shooting at her stepfather. She was adopted by distant cousins and raised under another name.
Now as Celia, she finds to her horror that her new husband has bought a house for her as a birthday present, the same house where she and her mother lived. Her husband Alex doesn't know of her history, and she doesn't know how to tell him that she doesn't want to live there.
When they arrive to move into the house, someone has defaced the house with red paint and carvings, referring to Liza as a killer. Celia collapses from the stress.
As the police try to find out what happened, people start dying and the deaths all lead in some way back to Liza and the death of her mother.
Lots of suspense, plot twists and surprises to keep you reading.
