Publisher's Summary

When Lise Redding's estranged sister, country-pop star Callie Redfern, is killed during a publicity stunt, the small-town music teacher is dragged from her quiet life into the spotlight.

Lise hadn't spoken with Callie in ten years, ever since Callie's betrayal split them apart, so she's shocked to discover that she's inherited her sister's massive estate. Not only that, but Lise is now the guardian of her sixteen-year-old niece, Ariel, to whom she's practically a stranger.

Overwhelmed by grief and her new responsibilities, Lise thinks things couldn't get worse. But overnight she becomes the paparazzi's latest obsession. Suddenly she and her longtime friend Dale are plastered over the front pages of the tabloids. Desperate to escape both the media and her memories, Lise sets off with Ariel on a search for the girl's father. Yet instead of granting Lise a reprieve, the quest brings her face-to-face with long-buried secrets. Only by learning to forgive will she be able to find her way back home.

    Story
    "What a terrific read."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. For a refreshing change-a great story thats not a detective, spy, other thriller or a romance.


    What other book might you compare Closer Home to and why?

    At the moment it stands alone-unique..


    Which character – as performed by Teri Clark Linden – was your favorite?

    Lise-The main character.


    Who was the most memorable character of Closer Home and why?

    The answer is the same as above.


    Any additional comments?

    Audible needs to pair great authors with great narrators more often as in this book. Often great stories are ruined by the narrators.

    "Good summer listen"

    I bought this book on sale for $4.95, so wasn't expecting a great listen just something to get me by til I got my monthly credit. Actually the story was good and did keep me listening. Even though I thought I knew who was Ariel's father, the story getting there was good. The narrator was good with the female voices, but the male voices were pretty bad. Still a pretty good listen.

    "Skip it."

    Awful. Author could have told the story in about an hour. Main character is an insufferable ninny.

    "Good Story and Narrator!"

    I enjoyed the imperfect characters in this unfolding story. I hope there is a sequel to the book. Thanks for a nice read!

    Story
    "Decent characters, but unrealistic."

    While this story focused on the surviving family of a famous singer, I don't find the course of events completely realistic. Nonetheless, it was entertaining and I found the characters well developed and thought through. Did not appreciate the language scattered throughout the book; however, was not frequent.
    The reader was good overall and easy to listen to. There where a time or two I wasn't sure which character was talking, as some of her voices were not very different.

    "Closer Home, close to perfect!"

    Kerry Anne King tells a great story and offers us a very enjoyable read/listen. Finally, a romance/drama with a believable back story, and no unnecessarily graphic sex scenes, and characters we can actually like.

    "Ending"

    Liked the book but I thought the ending was rushed. Half an hour left and I was thinking there was a lot to be covered in the remaining amount of time.
