    One thought on “Come Home”

    1. This book was horrible If I could give no stars, I would I had to laugh at another reviewer say that they wanted to throw the book I wanted to throw it and burn it If I saw that the main character say the word, honey or sweetie one time, I really was going to throw the book The other dialogue was bad, too No one talks like the way the characters did I almost threw up at some of the phrases the author used, like when talking about the one annoying, clueless stepdaughter practically fell into the [...]

    2. I was a Lisa Scottoline fan for many years, reading the next book in the Benny Rosato series as soon as it came out That series, and her stand alones, were dependably entertaining, some compelling than others, but an author I would always pick up for a fun read But Scottoline didn t seem to know how to end the Rosato Law Firm series, pulling her main character into ever weirder scenarios the evil twin, the live burial Come Home is a stand alone, with new characters and a plot that begins promis [...]

    3. Blather I am listening to this book, and I would like to find out who killed the ex husband But, it is torture All of the characters are whining constantly The daughter Megan s dialogue is like a toddler, and she is supposed to be in middle school 2 3 through the book and there are hardly any clues to murder Very disappointing I can t even believe Scottoline got this book published Doesn t she have an editor

    4. The only reason I finished this book is because I wouldn t feel right writing such a negative a review of a book I hadn t actually finished But as I kept reading, my opinion of the book which started out pretty bad just got worse and worse.Where to begin The mystery at the core of the book isn t terrible, but it s thinly presented and full of holes That s not the real problem, though The real problems are the characters who behave in ways that make no sense whatsoever and the dialogue which is s [...]

    5. Let s state from the very first This is a potboiler of a novel It reads like the script for a soap opera It can t make up its mind whether it s a murder mystery, criminal investigation, or family saga It shifts from one element to another without much consistency.The plot involves Dr Jill Farrow, a pediatrician with a 13 year old daughter by her deceased first husband, divorced from her second husband with no contact with his two college age daughters, and living with Sam Becker, about to becom [...]

    6. This is not my favorite Scottoline She is often a hit or miss for me, and this one was somewhere in between I loved the idea of this story Do you quit being a parent, how far will you go for your children How much will you risk This is the story of a woman who has one marriage, that ended badly and left her estranged from the two girls that she had mothered She is now with her own daughter and about to marry a wonderful man She is smart and successful Suddenly, one of the step daughters appears [...]

    7. Oh boy i really had to push on to get through this one A doctor who is about to get married again suddenly gets a visit from her ex stepdaughter her ex is dead was he MURDERED and reeks havoc on the hose Soon to be hubby isn t happy, docs own child takes second fiddle, her work suffers as well But she is determined to find out what happened The author is trying to tell us that just because we get a divorce, the love for the children doesn t end I get that the author is also trying to tell us tha [...]

    8. This is the dumbest book I have read in a really long time I don t mind a bit of mindless reading during the summer, but I m pretty sure I lost a few brain cells by forcing myself to finish this book I am definitely not a fan of this type of novel, the type that reads like the screenplay for a Lifetime made for TV movie and is written in 8th grade level English, if that much The author just throws us into the story w o developing the characters at all, but then spends quite a bit of time giving [...]

    9. I always read Lisa Scottoline s books and always love them However, I found this one to be okay, just not good The story involves a doctor with a teenage daughter and a fiance, as well as two older step daughters from a previous marriage The story begins with an older daughter arriving one night, informing them that her father the doctor s ex has died and that she believes he was killed The doctor begins looking into the death and finds a number of interesting things many of which are very suspi [...]

    11. Quick review for a somewhat lengthy read I m actually asking myself in the hours after finishing the book What on Earth did I just read I haven t read many of Lisa Scottoline s books, but admittedly it s been a while and this is the most recent example I can go on It stely not the first book I would recommend anyone read from this author I feel like it was an entertaining read but also a complete waste of time That sounds like a contradiction in itself, but I ll explain shortly So much of this b [...]

    12. I tried to like this book I really did Unfortunately despite my efforts, I didn t I am a mystery suspense thriller buff and this was so sappy, I felt embarrassed for the characters Jill Farrow seems to have her life together finally Her beloved first husband had died and that not only caused her grief but caused her to have to give birth to daughter Megan alone she found out she was pregnant a week after his death Her next relationship with sleazy pharmaceutical rep William who all the women fan [...]

    13. I ve talked about this weakness of mine before If I see a really awesome bargain on a hardcover book with the words, New York Times Best Seller on it, I m gunna buy it It s a money draining habit of mine and I have books piled all over my apartment because of it Sometimes the habit s not so bad I pick up some well written books I probably would have never thought twice about before I saw the bargain price It even helps me discover new authors to recommend their books to my book loving friends, w [...]

    14. Here s the thing about Come Home taken on its own, it s a good book Nothing life changing, slightly forgettable, but a good solid piece of fiction on similar footing with Jodi Picoult, with reasonably three dimensional characters, a decent plot, good writing, and great momentum, plus a little depth than the cheesy cover would imply Should that be the end of it I don t know.Here s the problem with Come Home it reads like it and Save Me, also by Scottoline, were entries for a writing contest with [...]

    15. Normally I love Lisa Scottoline books This one is the 1st one that made me wish I hadn t spent time reading it The characters seemed very whiny clueless about what was going on in their lives They also had some major personality changes during the course of the book which really annoyed me took away from what plot was actually there Everything seems forced rushed except for the dramas between characters I enjoy reading Lisa Scottoline s books because she writes strong, independent woman characte [...]

    16. I have heard about Lisa for years and thought I would give her a try Was not impressed with this book and then saw that it was her 18th so maybe it was just me I just have issues with this book I understand she was trying to solve a mystery but the lack of parenting just rubbed me the wrong way and then the twist of Mega and the boy, the one patient we heard about out of all of her patients, just so many little things that didn t sit well with me I think I will stick with Danielle Steele, Nora R [...]

    17. I have always been a fan of Lisa Scottoline s books ever since I picked up her book Daddy s Girl and from then on I read my way through her legal thrillers Her latest two novels though have been different , though they still have a heavy legal focus The way they have been written have reminded me of Jane Green with the strong emotional bonds and in a way Come Home reminded me of A Patchwork Marriage by Jane Green and of Jodi Picoult s with the touching and writing of strong issues that surround [...]

    18. I can t even bring myself to give this book one star I ve read all of her books related to the law firm and love them She has since detoured from this series and seems to be writing about her life as a mother and relationships with children I m not a mother of anything destined to walk on 2 legs but I was a child once with a mother so I think I m capable of relating, if just a little bit And I ve been a stepchild a few times This story line is a bad fantasy that consistently brought to mind a Li [...]

    19.

    24. I picked this up from a recommendation on audible I m not sure what I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised it turned into a murder mystery It lost my attention about 1 2 way through, but I kept pressing on By 2 3rds into it, I didn t really care how it ended.but was hoping it would get a bit exciting I have enjoyed books read by Maggi Meg Reed previously But the teenage voices in this one I found to be quite annoying The book has 77 chapters I gave up today at Chapter 75, not really feeling [...]

    25. First off let me say I have read and enjoyed other books by this author,but this book was a bit of a disappointment for me I had a really hardtime getting in to the book first of all and then I found I just wasn tinterested in the plot However, the premise of the plot was aninteresting one just not my cup of tea I guess.Come Home covers two basic topics It s a murder mystery at the heart ofthe story but it is also about motherhood specifically asking, whendoes the obligation and responsibility s [...]

    26. I ve read the first few chapters of this book So far there has been lots and lots and lots of hugging and crying.Scottoline writes great suspense I ve read all her previous books.In this book, there is some suspense, but not enough for me It s about a mom with one daughter, one nasty ex husband, one nice dead husband, two ex step daughters, one fiance and a dog.The mom is a pediatrician and a nurturer I m missing the snappy dialogue with Scottoline s ethnic characters This WASP family is a bit [...]
