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

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 09, 2012 – Complex family dynamics and carefully concealed secrets drive this gripping stand-alone from Edgar-winner Scottoline (Save Me). Jill Farrow, a Philadelphia pediatrician, and her teenage daughter, Megan, live with Jill s calm and forbearing fianc , Sam Becker. When Jill s estranged 19-year-old ex-stepdaughter, Abby Skyler, rushes into Jill s home late one rainy night to tell her that her ex-husband, William, is dead, apparently of a drug overdose, Jill can summon little sympathy for the unscrupulous William. When the distraught Abby insists that her father was murdered and that Jill must help her find his killer, Jill is reluctant to get involved, particularly since the police can find no evidence of a crime. As Jill tries to juggle her duties as doctor, mother, and sleuth, her delving into William s murky past puts emotional strain on Megan and jeopardizes her relationship with Sam. A surfeit of melodrama and some anemic subplots are unlikely to deter the author s many loyal fans. Author tour.

If this book was any slower it would be going backwards. Halfway through and putting it down. I don't care what happens. The characters are pretty much all boring. Waste of time.

Awesome book!!

I have read a few of her novels,and this is the best one! I like the family interactions.All of the characters seem real to me-I found my self immersed in this new family and even learned about finances! Keep writing like this..You have a new fan!

Book Worm

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! 👎 I loved her book "Keep Quite" now that's an amazing book!! 👍👍 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 😔
