My challenge may be done, but my love for reading hasn't ended! I still had several weeks to go, so I picked up a few books I couldn't fit into the challenge - things that friends lent me.
Today is about the book - Come Home
This is the story of a divorced mother who is finally getting her life back on track after a bad divorce. She is about to remarry, has a job as a pediatrician, and her daughter is a happy teenager. Things take a turn when her ex-stepdaughter, Abby, shows up at her house one night claiming that her dad was murdered and begs Jill to help. Jill agrees - even though her fiance doesn't approve - and finds that things don't add up. It does look like her ex-husband's death was not accidental. The further involved she gets with her ex-stepdaugher's life and the supposed murder, the more in danger she becomes.
I didn't like this book at all. It was truly awful. The characters were boring, and I rolled my eyes more than once at the constant "I love yous" and hugs these people had for each other. It was overkill and poorly written. I just have nothing good about it. I understand this author has a lot of other good books, and I put one on my challenge for next year, but after reading this....I might re-think it.
