Bestselling author Andrew Pyper returns with a riveting psychological thriller about how the people you’ve known your whole life can suddenly become strangers. What if everything you knew about the people you loved was a lie? After the death of their absentee father, Aaron and Bridge Quinlan travel to a vast rainforest property in the Pacific Northwest to hear the reading of his will. There, they meet up with their mother and troubled sister, Franny, and are shocked to discover the will’s terms: in order to claim their inheritance they must all remain at the estate for thirty days without any contact with the outside world. Despite their concerns, they agree. The Quinlans soon come to learn their family has more secrets than they ever imagined—revelations that at first inspire curiosity, then fear. Why does Bridge have faint memories of the estate? Why did their father want them to be sequestered there together? And what is out there they feel pulling them into the dark heart of the woods? The Homecoming is at once a gripping mystery, a chilling exploration of how our memories can both define and betray us, and a riveting page-turner that will have you questioning your very existence.

After 2 attempts I’ve decided I’m not a fan of Andrew Pyper....

Started off well but evolved into too much junk., and nonsense.

Stars: ⭐⭐⭐


Aaron’s father has recently passed away. A reticent, complicated man, Aaron doesn’t feel a great deal of sadness over his death...and so it’s quite an inconvenience when he learns he must spend 30 days in a remote lodge in order to receive any provisions from the extensive will his father left behind. And it’s not just Aaron; his two sisters Franny and Bridge, and his mother must also follow the same rules. No communication, no TV, and no stepping foot off this eerie property.

Other developments soon occur which leave the family more than a little apprehensive. Unexpected guests, spooky encounters, mysterious locales? What is really going on here? Did any of them even know their father? What did he do to help him amass such a fortune? Are their lives in danger? No amount of inheritance is worth all this...

Pros: The Homecoming started off strong and with a great premise - a test that must be passed in order to have a chance at millions of dollars...

Cons: Honestly, for a “horror” book, I found this to be extremely slow moving, and almost a little...boring. There is a twist at the end, but even that didn’t save this one for me.

Not bad, certainly, but it just wasn’t for me...
