Bring Her Home by David Bell

First he lost his wife.  She fell, hit her head and died.  Now his daughter was missing...

Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 11th.

Bill worked hard, felt he had a happy family, and misses his wife dreadfully.  He can't lose his daughter, too!

The story starts with a report that she is badly beaten and in the hospital.  His sister comes and stays with him and they take turns staying in the room with the girl.  Then he and his sister begin to wonder if that is really Summer under all those bandages.  It turns out to be her friend.  However, the other parents have already buried a body.  Whose was that?  It turns out there three girls involved and Summer is still missing.

As Bill frantically tries to find his daughter, he comes crossways with the cop investigating the case.  He doesn't take his advice, butts in where he isn't wanted, and he's searching for answers he can't find.  He accuses the boys in the school, wonders if his wife was having an affair with a neighbor, and almost loses his mind during this search.

What he learns will change his world.  He thought he had trouble understanding women but that's not his only problem.  There are ironic twists and turns to this tale.  The story ends well but not everything is happy ever after.  Most of life isn't.
