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?

Praise for Come Home

“The suspense and dread build like a series of tornadoes flattening all in their path...The pace is relentless, the twists are jawdropping, and then Scottoline piles ending on top of ending until you turn the last page. As I closed the novel, I thought that, quite simply, Scottoline is a powerhouse.” —David Baldacci

“Scottoline delivers a satisfying thriller with a family saga at its core.” —Booklist

“Complex family dynamics and carefully concealed secrets drive this gripping stand-alone.” —Publishers Weekly

Come Home held me spellbound.” —Janet Evanovich

“A gripping and compelling novel...Scottoline gets all the details right, and gives all the characters flesh and blood, breath and life. This is a novel that is as full of thrills as it is full of heart.” —Kristin Hannah
