No Place Like Home by Mary Higgins Clark (review by Lavinia D. '17)

No Place Like HomeNo Place Like Home by Mary Higgins Clark
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

At the tender age of ten, Liza Barton accidentally shoots and kills her mother during an attempt to protect her from her abusive stepfather. The story picks up twenty-four years later, with Liza having changed her name to Celia Foster Nolan and happily married to Alex Nolan, who, unaware of her traumatic past, gives her a horrifying birthday gift: the keys to her old home. Celia tries desperately to hide her true identity while simultaneously trying to obtain more details of the events that led to that night. Unfortunately, there are signs that someone in the neighborhood knows who she really is, and she suddenly finds her life in mortal danger. The surprising plot twists of this horror mystery novel will keep readers guessing until the very end and unable to put it down. – Lavinia D. ‘17
