Home Is Where The Bodies Are by NYT bestselling author Jeneva Rose


Pub Day: April 30, 2024


I look forward to Jeneva Rose's new books because I know I will get swept up in their drama, and my jaw will probably hit the ground a few times. This one is domestic suspense and has multiple POVs with complicated family dynamics, secrets, and the cover-up of an old crime. Three estranged siblings make a startling discovery on an old VHS tape labeled June 1999 and must try to make sense of what they see and look for more clues while grieving their mother's death. The characters are flawed, and the story is layered and detailed. The short chapters propel the story and suspense, and the late 90s nostalgia was fun. And the cover is amazing! As I listened, I could picture this making for a great film adaptation! 


The audiobook is narrated by a stellar cast, including Brittany Pressley, Andrew Eiden, January LaVoy, and Cassandra Campbell. Each is perfect for their roles, with voices suited to the characters they bring to life. The way they use inflection and emotion in their performances enhances the tension and suspense of the story. This was very entertaining!

PUBLISHER'S SYNOPSIS:

 

From New York Times bestselling author of The Perfect Marriage and You Shouldn’t Have Come Here comes a chilling family thriller about the (sometimes literal) skeletons in the closet.

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.
