Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The story of a devious man and of a little girl accused of murdering her mother, now grown up and facing the horrors again. The suspense builds to make this a gripping and, at times, surprising story; it is very good indeed.

Comparison: Christina Schwarz, Hilary Norman, Morag Joss.
Similar this month: Sheila Quigley, Tess Gerritsen.

If you like Mary Higgins Clark you might also like to read books by Tami Hoag, Sophie Hannah and Linda Castillo.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

No Place Like Home by Mary Higgins Clark

"I cannot believe I am standing in the exact spot where I was standing when I killed my mother..."

When she was ten Liza Barton shot her mother dead, trying to protect her from her violent stepfather. The court ruled the death a tragic accident. Many believed it to be deliberate murder.

Twenty-four years later, Liza is known as Celia. Now a successful interior designer, living in Manhattan, she is happily married for the second time, with a young son, Jack, by her first marriage. Nothing can disturb their peace. But when her new husband surprises her with a gift, her world is suddenly shattered - for it is the very same house where her mother met her death.

It soon becomes clear that someone in the community knows Celia's true identity. And when the estate agent who sold the house is brutally murdered, Celia instantly becomes a suspect.

As Celia fights to prove her innocence, she has no idea that she and Jack could be the next targets of a ruthless killer.
