    As Sheriff John Weber would attest, the deadliest predators to date in his tiny hamlet were the alligators lurking in the nearby swamps. But that was before someone abducted and murdered a runaway teenage girl...and before the disappearance of popular and pretty Liana Martin. The pattern is chilling to Sandy Crosbie, the town's new high school English teacher who wishes she'd never come to the seemingly quiet town with shocking depths of scandal, sex, and brutality roiling beneath its surface.

    Overall

    I like Joy Fielding books and this was no exception. It was great and I was very surprised to find out who the killer was. I read so many mysteries, I've gotten pretty good at guessing, but this one was a real surprise.

    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 her - though it is stressful - and her daughter, Megan, is a happily overscheduled thirteen-year-old juggling homework and the swim team. But Jill’s life is turned upside down when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up on her doorstep late one night 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.

    What would have made Come Home better?

    I wish I had read this book rather than listened to it. Lisa Scottoline's books are wonderful, but if you are listening to this one, the reader was disappointing.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the mystery surrounding this story.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    In every way. The narrator whined throughout the book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    My reaction was disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm going to pay better attention to the reviews before I purchase another book.

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Overall

    I have enjoyed Nora Roberts' books. I especially enjoyed the narrator of this one. She was excellent. The book was enjoyable and kept my interest.

    Story

    Peter Sommars is 15, and what he needs is a little more independence - which is why he'd like his mom, Carol, to start dating. He even knows the perfect man - Alex Preston, his best friend's dad. As it turns out, Alex is interested, but Carol's doing everything she can to sidestep his pursuit. Which only makes Alex - and the boys - more determined!

    What made this book even better was the reader. No matter how good a book is, if the reader isn't good, it spoils the book a bit.
