Book Review - HOME by Ginny L. Yttrup

I frankly don't know anyone who writes women's fiction as well as Ginny Yttrup. Even though it's fiction, there's such a ring of truth in them that you'd swear Ginny's writing it from her own life.

When the housing market took a dive, many building and architectural contractors went out of business. Those who survived had to diversify and cut back. Craig is one whose business has suffered--or strangled, nearly. He and Melanie discuss putting their own self-designed dream home on the market and moving to something smaller. Or rather, Craig tries to discuss it. Melanie closes herself off.

Melanie is a writer with a deadline that's looming way too close, and she can't get her characters to cooperate. What she needs is a break, and a friend provides her with the perfect retreat--a house on beautiful Clear Lake--for free. She can escape, but will she return even when--if--the book is ever finished?

Jill and Marcos live next door, and Jill is the closest thing to a best friend that Melanie has. Jill has problems of her own: She is OCD on steroids. She has frequent nightmares of someone dying, and she's literally terrified that someone in her family is going to die from a germ that found its way into their sterilized house or a car wreck or whatever. The dreams are so real they seem more like a memory than imagination. Marcos is beyond worried about her.

With tension on every page, Home is nearly impossible to put down. Available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
