However, in the home she now shares with her fiancé Sam Becker, she is establishing a new family.
Then one night, three years after her previous family fell apart, her ex-stepdaughter Abby Skyler is at the door with shocking news that her father, William, is dead and she believes he has been murdered. The police do not think so, however, so she begs for Jill's help to prove it and find the killer. Plunging into the middle of a complex situation with troubling family dynamics could threaten everything she has built in this new life.
Following the clues, finding out secrets from a laptop, and running from someone who has been tailing her all week puts Jill and several others at risk.
How will Jill escape the dangers that are crowding in around her? Can she protect her family while finding the answers? And what does a drug company have to do with the whole quandary she has stumbled upon?
From the very first page, I found myself totally engrossed. The characters, like Jill and her daughter and step-daughters, were all so believable that turning pages to see how everything unfolded for them felt like something I had to do, and quickly.
Having observed family dynamics in a number of situations over the years, these relationships felt true and full of the emotions that connect family members. Come Home was a testament to the strength of the ties between mothers and children. Along the way, I did find many of the plot twists and turns predictable; there was never any doubt in my mind that everything would turn out in the end. Which is why I gave this one four stars. However, I did enjoy it tremendously and would recommend it to anyone who favors fast-paced thrillers with strong female characters.
