Homecoming Chaos - D W Brooks



A dead body in the parking lot of her family’s business, a killer on the loose, and a handsome detective asking a lot of questions…

Jamie Scott’s life fell apart four years ago when she broke off her engagement, turned down a dream job, and went overseas to run away from her life. Now she’s back, but the reunion is not without problems. She arrives home just in time to attend the soiree her mother planned, but she’s not prepared for what she finds—a dead employee in the parking lot.

Detective Nick Marshall is assigned to the murder case at the forensics lab owned by Jamie’s family. He meets the headstrong Jamie, but he has a job to do. And his attraction to her… well, he’s a professional.

Jamie knows the stakes are high. She has to face the past and save her parents’ business while dealing with her family drama and an uncertain future. She also has to deal with Nick, who wants her out of the way of his investigation. But fate keeps throwing them in one another’s paths… and into chaos that they both want to avoid, but neither can seem to escape.

I have always been an enthusiastic reader. Breakfast in my childhood home was a slow process as I would read any object on the table—newspapers, cereal boxes, milk cartons, anything. Taking away my books was an effective punishment.

As part of this interest, my cousins and I created a neighborhood of preteen and teenage characters who had adventures and solved mysteries. We drew out this neighborhood, identified where everyone lived, and created character profiles for each one. We were well ahead of our time and wrote a lot of unfinished stories which disappeared into the attic as we got older. After this failed experiment, I still had thoughts of writing my own stories one day.

Becoming an author was an early dream pushed aside by practical thoughts and fears. I decided to take a more surefire route of going to medical school and residency. While I didn’t write my own stories, I spent time writing in a medical and education capacity.

A health crisis awakened the desire to write again. And the ability to self-publish, I could see a path to getting my words and stories out of my head and into a bound book others can read and hopefully enjoy.


A nice suspenseful read. This book really amps up in the last half and gets quite intense. The first half was a little slow for me, but halfway through I really started enjoying it more.

I really liked the characters.  The main character, Jamie, seemed like someone I would like in real life. She was smart, sensitive, strong, a perfect leading lady. I liked reading about her family, and their conversations. I felt like a fly on the wall.  That’s what kept me going at first. I kept reading and then BAM! The second half of the book really took off, all the sudden it gets crazy with suspense and excitement.

A nice worthwhile read! I recommend this one. It's a "sit in the Livingroom with a cup of coffee while it snows outside" kind of book. :-)

Thanks to the author, D. W. Brooks, for sending me an ecopy to read and review.
