Philadelphia suburban pediatrician Jill Farrow feels her life and that of her thirteen years old daughter Megan has finally moved on passed the crippling divorce from William Skyler.  She and Jill live with her fiancé serene Sam Becker.  

 

Jill’s former stepdaughter nineteen years old Abby arrives to inform her that William died from an apparent overdose.  Though she knows her reaction is not comforting, Jill does not care what killed amoral William.  However, a despondent Abby claims her dad was murdered and she needs Jill’s help to find his killer; as the police closed the case as a drug death.  Unable to say no to a daughter she still loves (as she does her other stepchild Victoria) although they have been estranged since just before the divorce, Jill reluctantly agrees to investigate, but her kindness upsets Megan and Sam and threatens her life while interfering with a related inquiry.

 

Come Home is an entertaining extended family drama in which the relationship dynamics supersedes the dueling investigative suspense subplots.  Filled with too much relational angst, still fans will appreciate Lisa Scottoline’s enjoyable tale.
