Product Description

"This thrilling testament to a mother's relentless love may well be Scottoline's best novel to date."-Library Journal (starred review)

Jill Farrow is a suburban mom who has finally gotten her and her daughter's lives back on track after a divorce. She loves being a pediatrician and is about to remarry, while her daughter, Megan, is a happily over-scheduled thirteen-year-old. But Jill's life is turned upside down when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up 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 soon discovers that the story doesn'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 how can Jill turn her back on a child she loves and once called her own? What are the limits of love, loss, and family?

"Relentless...jaw-dropping."-David Baldacci

I would have given it a 5 star because I was really really enjoying it but I got so bogged up in all that technical confusing stuff about how William had another persona and how they were getting all that money? I found it very confusing and boring.

HASH(0xa65075e8) out of 5 stars Between 2 and 3 stars rating March 28 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
Scottoline's newest domestic drama revolves around Jill, a woman who seemingly has her life all together, three years after a bad divorce. Jill is a pediatrician, happy with her life and successful career, then her past knocks at her door in the form of her EX-step-daughter Abby. She is drunk and distraught because her father (Jill's "ex" of course) is dead. She believes her father was murdered, even if the police don't and implores Jill to help her prove it.

Jill's fiance, Sam, the man of her dreams, doesn't want her to get involved with her ex's disturbed and rude daughters, who can blame him? These are "ex's" afterall, who are shallow and self-centered. Jill has a 13 year old daughter at home who is a great kid, her grown step-daughters are of questionable character, are unkind and rude to her, and yet Jill seems to put the step-daughters needs ahead of her own daughter. I didn't much like Jill. She accepts the stepdaughters insults so graciously, she practically turns the other cheek. A little stretch, in my humble opinion. We are led to believe that a woman of Jill's intelligence would risk everything personal and professional to turn amateur sleuth in order to prove that "once a (step)mother, always a mother" and that there is no expiration date on motherhood.

Personally, I didn't like many of the characters, they just didn't draw me in emotionally. It was pretty "hollywood-ish" with chase scenes, shootings, undercover agents and bad guys. The twists and turns kept it entertaining, for those that like beach-reading, but I like more substance to my reading. I think Scottoline should stick to her crime/justice novels.

HASH(0xa6507f90) out of 5 stars Come Home June 13 2012
By SuZeeQ - Published on
Usually enjoy Lisa Scottoline books. This one is truly awful. Boring, repetitive and with regard to the audio book... the narrator simple overdoes her 'performance.' I found myself rolling my eyes several times & wondering if it was a good idea to finish the story. We get that Jill is a Mom... really, we understand. No need to keep reminding the readers.
Pass this one by. Not worth your time or your money.

HASH(0xa6507fcc) out of 5 stars A tedious tear-jerker April 14 2012
By Bookworm - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Sorry but that was really bad. Jill's quest for the truth is totally unrealistic not to say unbelievable. There is a host of cardboard characters -including some police officers who don't seem to know what to do and some skulking villains. Above all there is a surfeit of emotional outbursts from mommy love to puppy love. Yet there is a fairly creditable underlying story, and a few people such as Sam, Megan or Katie to give it substance. Unfortunately the central character is - totally out of character. By the time everything is explained, the reader can't care less and wonders how come Scottoline put her name to the book.

HASH(0xa6ccc078) out of 5 stars Just O.K. April 2 2012
By OrchidSlayer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I have read and enjoyed other books by this author, but was disappointed with this one. The plot was good - a pediatrician's ex-husband dies and her former step-daughter thinks he was murdered. The doctor then puts her life on hold to try to solve the mystery. It also addresses the special issues that blended families often deal with.

The book was just too wordy. I had a lot of trouble getting into the beginning and kept eyeing the other books waiting to be read. Again, the plot was good (although not terribly believable), but it needed to be about 1/3 shorter. I won't be recommending this to anyone.

HASH(0xa6ccc5a0) out of 5 stars Family and Obligation March 28 2012
By Amy Leemon - Published on
Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product
"Come Home" covers two topics. It's a murder mystery but also tackles the subject of motherhood - specifically, when does the obligation and responsibility stop for a child.

In this case, Abby is Jill's grown stepdaughter. When Jill's ex-husband dies under circumstances Abby thinks are suspicious, she goes to Jill for help.

Even tho she hasn't heard from Abby for years, Jill is drawn into her story and as a result her own family (Megan - her teenage daughter and Sam, her fiancee) is disrupted. When Abby disappears after her father's funeral, Jill becomes totally obsessed at the expense of her career and family.

I had a bit of a hard time with this book because I really didn't like Jill and I knew she was supposed to be a sympathetic character. She was too impulsive and reckless and she never settled down enough to listen to any reason. I doubt that any single mother would take such risks so she never became believable.

The story did have some very interesting twists and surprises toward the end which made it well worth reading.
