Audiobook Description:

After their mother passes, three estranged siblings reunite to sort out her estate.

Beth, the oldest, never left home. She stayed with her mom, caring for her until the very end.

Nicole, the middle child, has been kept at arm’s length due to her ongoing battle with a serious drug addiction.

Michael, the youngest, lives out of state and hasn’t been back to their small Wisconsin town since their father ran out on them seven years before.

While going through their parent’s belongings, the siblings stumble upon a collection of home videos and decide to revisit those happier memories. However, the nostalgia is cut short when one of the VHS tapes reveals a night back in 1999 that none of them have any recollection of. On screen, their father appears covered in blood. What follows is a dead body and a pact between their parents to get rid of it, before the video abruptly ends. Beth, Nicole, and Michael must now decide whether to leave the past in the past or uncover the dark secret their mother took to her grave.

Jessica’s Review:

This one has mixed reviews, and once I saw the Barnes and Nobel special edition cover, I knew if I liked it, I HAD to get that edition! And I did enjoy it, gave it four stars and bought myself that special edition! 

It was just a good story for me and nostalgia factor of1999 and all of the references of that ‘easier time of life’.

We have multiple povs, so you know I really enjoyed this one! I enjoyed the ending and again, the title comes into play towards the end of the book. I wasn’t a total fan of the villain’s motives.

When I saw the audiobook had multiple actors doing the narrations, I just has to listen to the book! And January LaVoy is one of my favorite narrators! It was a shorter book, so it could be read quicker if the reader has the time!

Home was my first novel by the author, so I will see what else she writes/ look into her previous novels.
