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 parents’ 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.

Praise

“It’s an odd feeling to read something that feels so nostalgic and relatable yet still surprises you at the turn of every page. Home Is Where the Bodies Are is fast-paced and fresh and will have you rushing to your parents’ attic to unearth your own dark family secrets.” Ashley Flowers, #1 New York Times bestselling author of All Good People Here

“Home Is Where the Bodies Are is fast-paced and propulsive with characters you truly empathize with and an ending so surprising and satisfying, you’ll immediately recommend this book to all of your friends. This is Jeneva Rose at her best.” Mary Kubica, New York Times bestselling author of Local Woman Missing and Just the Nicest Couple

“Home is Where the Bodies Are is a master thriller writer’s deliciously f*cked-up answer to The Inheritance Games, pitting three flawed siblings against one another in the wake of their mother’s death and shocking will. Only, in true Jeneva Rose fashion, there’s a devious, life-changing twist: Mom and Dad may have committed murder, and the family inheritance is actually a legacy of violence that threatens to ensnare the siblings for good. Sharp writing, a breakneck pace, and a surprisingly tender heart make this story of familial loyalty, grief, and murder impossible to put down.” Ashley Winstead, author of Midnight Is the Darkest Hour

“Rose demonstrates a formidable command of character…Fans will enjoy the ride.” Publishers Weekly

“Home Is Where the Bodies Are by Jeneva Rose is a tense and harrowing story of family tragedy, lifelong secrets, and unresolved childhood jealousies.

Deeply moving and utterly engaging, readers will love this book!” Karen Dionne, internationally bestselling author of The Marsh King’s Daughter and The Wicked Sister

“Secrets, lies, estranged siblings, and a decades-old mystery that’s clambering its way to the surface one victim at a time—Home Is Where the Bodies Are has it all and then some. This original, fast-paced, flawless thriller had me switching allegiances and theories about who- and whydunit as I frantically turned the pages to get to the truth. Jeneva Rose is a powerhouse of an author, and an exceptionally talented writer. Sign me up for whatever she comes up with next!” Hannah Mary McKinnon, internationally bestselling author of The Revenge List

“A gripping tale of buried secrets penned by one of the best. Plenty of lies, and plenty of sinister videotapes.” Peter Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of The Kind Worth Killing

“A dark and twisty take on grief, sibling rivalry, and the bodies, quite literally, buried in one family’s past, Home Is Where the Bodies Are is a wild ride filled with 90s nostalgia and knife-sharp observations that will make readers wonder just how well they know their own parents.” Stacy Willingham, New York Times bestselling author of Only if You’re Lucky

“Answers are hard to come by in this twisting tale designed to trick and delight.” Kirkus Reviews

“Shockingly clever! Jeneva Rose plumbs the depths of how well we know the people we love to new and terrifying effects. Will grip you till the climactic end.” Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author
