Lisa Scottoline has delivered taut thrillers with a powerful
emotional wallop in her New York Times bestsellers Save Me,
Think Twice, and Look Again. Now, with her new novel, Come
Home, she ratchets up the suspense with the riveting story
of a mother who sacrifices her future for a child from her past.
Jill Farrow is a typical suburban mom who has finally gotten
her and her daughter's lives back on track after a divorce.
She is about to remarry, her job as a pediatrician fulfills
herâ€”-though it is stressfulâ€”-and her daughter, Megan, is a
happily over-scheduled thirteen-year-old juggling homework
and the swim team.
But Jillâ€™s life is turned upside down when her
ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up on her doorstep late one
night and delivers shocking news: Jillâ€™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 discovers that things donâ€™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 Jill canâ€™t turn her back on a
child she loves and once called her own.
Come Home reads with the breakneck pacing of a thriller
while also exploring the definition of motherhood, asking
the questions: Do you ever stop being a mother? Can you ever
have an ex-child? What are the limits to love of family?
