Starred Review for Come Home

Starred Review for Come Home

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."
