Publisher's Summary

Lisa Scottoline has delivered taut thrillers with a powerful emotional wallop in her New York Times best-sellers Save Me, Think Twice, and Look Again. Now, with her new novel, Come Home, she ratchets up the suspense with the riveting story of a mother who sacrifices her future for a child from her past.

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. Jill reluctantly agrees to make a few inquiries and discovers that things don’t add up. As she digs deeper, her actions threaten to rip apart her new family, destroy their hardearned happiness, and even endanger her own life. Yet Jill can’t turn her back on a child she loves and once called her own.Come Home reads with the breakneck pacing of a thriller while also exploring the definition of motherhood, asking the questions: Do you ever stop being a mother? Can you ever have an exchild? What are the limits to love of family?

    A great mystery with Scottolines tone and cadence that keeps you glued to the book. Scottoline is a master story teller!

    Story
    "I can't finish this."
    What disappointed you about Come Home?

    I don't like the story, and as another reader has said the whiny, crying narration. I purchased this book back in September but am just now listening to it. Unfortunately even though I am a platinum member who has renewed twice this year, Audible won't let me return this book. As a matter of fact I can no longer return any books. I thought they meant what they said if you don't like it you can return it. Well, I didn't like several books from the beginning of reading them and returned them. It's not like I'm reading it from start to finish and returning them. They have in small print that you can return a reasonable number of books. What that number is they don't say. I am sorry I will be stuck with this book I will never listen to now. Unfair! I wrote them about this matter and they didn't even bother to reply. I just would like my credit back. Does anyone else have this problem?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Pretending to Dance by Diane Chamberlain


    Did Maggi-Meg Reed do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I think the narration was extremely over acted in the part of this book I listened to until I couldn't stand it anymore.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked all the other Lisa Scottoline books I have read/listened to.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I'm sure this review won't be posted.

    Children's voices were irritataing


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Come Home?

    Nothing particular....just cut down the length of expalnations...book moved too slowly

    "Surprised I made it past the first chapter"

    Horrid whining, crying and screeching narration for the first chapter. I don't know where the narrator got the idea that they had to do what they did to convey emotion- there are great narrators who emote without all that. The story was ok- just ok- I certainly wouldn't listen to it again. If you are interested I this kind of story I suggest you buy the book.

    "Terrible Story"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Scottoline and/or Maggi-Meg Reed?

    Maggi-Meg Reed's reading was fine, but the plot of this book was awful.


    What was most disappointing about Lisa Scottoline’s story?

    The plot was unbelievable and the characters broad pastiche.

    Story
    "A stand-alone thriller."

    Jill Farrow is a pediatrician involved in a thriving practice. She is involved in a new relationship with Sam, a medical researcher, and her daughter, Megan is happily tied to her 13-year-old school life and the swim team. Then one day, Abby shows up, says her father, (Jill’s ex-husband) is dead, and she insists it is murder. Jill’s ex-husband told Abby and her sister, Victoria, that Jill had abandoned them when she divorced him, which was a lie, but they believed it and Victoria was particularly hostile. Abby seemed very needy, and Sam began to worry about how much time she was taking of Jill’s very limited extra time and felt that he and Megan would both miss out. Jill finally agreed to do just a little checking for Abby and when she could show Abby that the police were correct, that her father’s death was a natural death caused by a heart attack, she can then let everything go. But the little bit of digging she started with turned up some strange things, and she went on digging to find out what had happened. Soon, she and her entire family were in danger, and Sam, who wanted her to stop the digging, was alienated. This is a thriller which proceeds at breakneck speed until its conclusion. The narrator was almost too good, doing the crying, particularly of Abby, to a point where I wanted to kill Abby, but it turned out to be good acting for what was going on. This is a stand-alone and very good.

    Sure, I liked the middle/end of the story.

    "the narrator's voice was very annoying..."

    I usually enjoy Lisa Scottoline's book's but the narrator's performance took away from my enjoying this book. The whining was especially annoying. I would definetly think twice before purchasing another book read by Maggi-Meg Reed.

    "Liked the story - the reader not so much"
    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.
