Hurry home A novel

Roz Nay

Book - 2020

"Alexandra Van Ness has the perfect life. She lives in an idyllic resort town tucked away in the Rocky Mountains, shares a designer loft with her handsome boyfriend, Chase, and has her dream job working in child protection. Every day, Alex goes above and beyond to save children at risk. But when her long-lost sister, Ruth, unexpectedly shows up at her door, Alex's perfect life is upended. Growing up, Ruth was always the troublemaker, pulling Alex into her messes, and this time will be different. Still, Alex will help Ruth under one condition: we will never, ever, talk about the past. But when a local child goes missing, both women are forced to confront the secrets they've promised to keep buried. Utterly engrossing and claustrophobic, Hurry Home is a tantalizing reflection of the chain-and-shackles relationship between sisters that asks: what lines wouldn't you cross for your own?"--Jacket flap.

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Alex and Ruth Van Ness, the sisters at the heart of this serviceable suspense novel from Nay (Our Little Secret), are as different in temperament and life choices as they are in appearance. Blond, smart Alex, a social worker, lives with her good-looking boyfriend in Denver. Older, dark-haired sister Ruth has a prison record and a string of violent and dangerous boyfriends. Tired of being compared to her perfect younger sister, Ruth left home in rural North Dakota at 15 with her drug dealing boyfriend and disappeared. Ten years later, Ruth knocks on Alex's front door, pregnant and with nowhere else to go. A boyfriend from whom she has stolen drugs and money is after her. Meanwhile, Alex is obsessed with the removal of an infant from a home she deems unsuitable, and will go to any lengths to achieve her goal. The secrets that have divided the sisters but that also bind them together slowly emerge. The characters aren't particularly distinctive, and the predictable action builds to an overly tidy resolution. Veteran genre readers have seen all this before. Agent: Carolyn Forde, Transatlantic Agency. (July)
