Coming Home, by Lisa Scottoline

In the "Acknowledgments," Lisa Scottoline says she wanted to write the emotional truth about being a stepmother and ex-stepmother--in essence, to explore the question of what happens to the love stepmothers and stepchildren feel when the marriage that bound them no longer exists. An interesting question--but one that is not examined in any meaningful way in Coming Home. The stepmother and stepdaughters are both unbelievable and unsympathetic, and the mystery in which Scottoline embroils them is ridiculous.

Not recommended.
