The incredibly charming Lisa Scottoline is back with COME HOME, a stand-alone thriller about a mother who sacrifices her future for a child from her past.
Jill Farrow has finally gotten her and her daughter's lives back on track after a divorce. But Jill’s life is turned upside down when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up one night and delivers shocking news: Jill’s ex-husband is dead. Abby insists that he was murdered. Jill reluctantly agrees to make a few inquiries. 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 can’t turn her back on a child she loves and once called her own.
Library Journal gave COME HOME a starred review and said, "This thrilling testament to a mother’s relentless love may well be Scottoline’s best novel to date. Her many fans and other mystery/thriller aficionados will want to read it."
And Booklist said, "Scottoline has been stretching her wings a bit with two stand-alones heavy on domestic drama, but loyal fans of her legal thrillers signed on for SAVE ME and are likely to do the same this time."
COME HOME will be available in April from St. Martin's Press.
