Our mystery/thriller reviewer , Lindsey, is back today. Here’s Lindsey:
Come Home is an exciting, emotional thriller from Lisa Scottoline, a New York Times best selling author.
Jill, our heroine, is a pediatrician on her third try at a family. Her ex-stepdaughter shows up one night drunk, claiming that her father has been murdered.
What follows is a twofold storyline. Jill tries to find a way to fit all three families into one. Her daughter, her two stepdaughters, her fiancée, her soon to be stepson, and her possibly murdered ex-husband all while caring deeply for her patients. It is complicated though as tensions run high and misunderstandings about the past rise to the surface.
She also becomes Dr. Watson as she tries to find out if her ex-husband William was murdered. If he was, why? She is pushed away at every turn because she isn’t a relative. Anymore. She still has his computer, her suspicions, and two stepdaughters she is determined to help discover the truth.
This is a great thriller with twists and turns you won’t expect as well as a heartwarming story about what family really is. A perfect poolside read.
