Lisa Scottoline delivers taut thrillers with a powerful emotional wallop. In Come Home, she ratchets up the suspense with the riveting story of a mother who sacrifices her future for a child from her past.

This is the first book I have read by this author. I feel the story line was good but it seemed to take forever to really get to it. The last fourth of the book was great and I didn't see some of it coming. I feel there was almost too much background from the past given and I feel the character Victoria changed her feelings to quickly to make for a "happily ever after" ending. ( )

Another really good Scottoline work. Woman's ex-stepdaughter comes back into her life cuz she thinks her dad was murdered. Good points about divorcing not shutting off feelings for children or parents, & how new ppl in one's life feel about/deal with that. 400+ pages, read in 2 nites. ( )

When Jill's estranged ex-stepdaughter shows up at the door to tell her that her ex-husband has died, Jill's world is suddenly turned upside down. Abby further goes on to tell Jill that she thinks that her father was murdered, and begs Jill to help her prove it. Her maternal instincts kick in for the ex-stepdaughter that she never stopped loving, but her loyalties are being pulled in all directions when her new love demands that she choose between "their" family or her old family...

And when Abby disappears, Jill finds herself and all those that she loves being drug into something much deeper than she could have imagined... ( )

I like the action and twists but not the pat endings. Everyone ends up just a little too happy.

In real life Sam would have left Jill Farrow. ( )

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 over-scheduled 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 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. 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 ex-child? What are the limits to love of family?… (more)
