Take this book home with you!

Today’s Book: Almost Home, Pam Jenoff

The Plot: American State Department employee, Jordan Weiss, maneuvers a new work assignment to England. In reality she wants to be geographically closer to her friend Sarah who is suffering with ALS. When Jordan arrives she is called upon to investigate the Albanian mob and a money laundering scheme. Complicating her return are unresolved feelings about her college lover Jared who died in an apparent drowning ten years ago.

Why you’ll Love it:
Jenoff does a masterful job of blending romance, friendship, loyalty, and political mayhem along with a shady bit of World War II history into a suspenseful and multi-layered novel.

Who Should Read it?:
Readers who enjoy suspense stories with a good deal of character development will find much to appreciate here.


*Look for Jenoff's follow-up to this novel, Hidden Things, coming July 2010!
