Elaine needs peace and quiet and rest after a brain injury. So her family moves to the small sleepy town of Veil, Texas, just for a while until she recovers. They’re a nice family, kind to each other, teasing, helpful, and very real. The dialog’s perfect and makes them seem just like the family next door. But it’s the families next door to them that might be the problem. When Elaine learns that a young girl, just the same age as her daughter, once vanished from this very house, the knowledge really isn’t conducive to peace and a quiet and rest.

Elaine’s problems separating dream from reality leave her unsure of what she’s seen. But gradually the clues add up and soon she’s seeking allies in a seriously unrestful game. After all, who could rest, knowing a possible murderer’s gone free? And how can Elaine feel at home while a child from the past remains missing?

Come Home to Me Child introduces a feisty wounded heroine in a pleasing short detective novel with interesting characters, great dialog, convincing locations, and an all too plausible crime. It’s just as well the novel doesn’t run to thousands of pages, as I couldn’t put it down.

Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy, with no estrings attached.
