'No Place Like Home' by Mary Higgins Clark [31/2]

Celia Nolan has a terrible secret.

Aged 10, she shot her mother dead. Known then
as Liza Barton, she claimed she was protecting them both
from her violent stepfather and was aquitted by the courts.

Everyone else, however, believed it to be murder.

Now, twenty-four years later, with a new name,
new family and new life, Celia thinks the past is forgotten.
But when her husband Alex buys her a house, she is
horrified to find it is the exact same one in which she
ended her mother's life.

Worse still, someone else knows; someone who is
willing to kill to unleash the truth, beginning with the
brutal murder of the estate agent who sold the house.

Celia becomes prime suspect, putting Alex and her
young son Jack in danger.

As the body count rises, she is thrust into a race against
time to clear her name and prevent herself and her family
from becoming the next victims of a vicious killer.

A killer who believes some secrets should never stay buried...

First time that I have read this author and I really enjoyed it.

It's a crime novel mixed with mystery and an ending you wont see coming!

It's not a long novel...just over 350 pages, so you could read it in one sitting if you have the time.

I did, and only because I couldn't put it down, I had to know what happens in the end.

Really well written, you won't guess the plot until your nearly finished and then you hope it's not true...

The characters are all interesting and you want to find out more about them.

Definitely will read some more novels from this author.

I rate this book 3 1/2 stars.
