I absolutely LOVED this book! Claire is sarcastic, FUNNY, semi crazy, and a hella smart woman that I loved to hate then loved again.

From two-time Book of the Year finalist and Thriller of the Year Award winner Kathleen O'Donnell comes a gripping psychological thriller filled with quirky, unexpected twists.
A girl in serious trouble
Delilah Diamond had it all, the popular cooking show, a dream house, and a great romance with her producer, until the producer's wife gets wind of it all. Delilah loses her show, her job, and her house. She's forced to go back to her hometown where everyone has skeletons in their closet—or worse.
A home not like any other
She arrives just in time for the unfortunate death of her high school crush, but senses something's wrong with the story of his demise. Before she realizes it, she's knee-deep in a past that almost crushed her years before, and could very well crush her now, for good.
A mother who keeps sordid secrets
Local law enforcement is a homegrown drunk, and useless, so someone higher up the food chain sends a big city detective who starts sniffing around her classmate's suspicious death and her mother's past. Delilah's protective hackles are raised. She knows her mother has shameful secrets, but the more she learns, the more she realizes she doesn't know the whole story.
A hometown that comes together, even in crime
In small towns, you protect your family and your neighbors come what may, but will Delilah be able to protect her mother without exposing her own sins? The ones she worked so hard to cover up? Will she be able to deter the detective away from the truth?
You can't go home again. Or can you? Should you? How safe is home when you know where the bodies are buried?
Girl Gone Home is ultimately a story about love, family, loyalty and circling the wagons no matter what terrible crime's been committed. It's quirky, heartfelt, and reminiscent of Dolores Claiborne and the works of Kate Atkinson, Jane Hamilton, and Janet Evanovich.
