I've read several books by Mulrooney and have enjoyed them. Never Came Home is the second book in her new series featuring DI Siv Drummond. I read the first one about this time last year and liked the focus on the investigation while Mulrooney continues building the character studies of Siv, Ali, and Patrick.
Before moving from London to Berminster, Siv lost her husband in an accident. He left and never came home, and Siv continues to grieve.
Siv's new case involves a mother who left the house intending to be back quickly, but who never came home. Now, six years later, Lyn Dimas' body has been found, and a case that was written off as a possible suicide becomes a murder investigation.
Depending on her small team of Ali and Patrick, Siv attempts to untangle all the lies and misdirection that led to Lyn's murder. And there are plenty of lies and secrets to be uncovered.
Since it will be another year or so before the next Siv Drummond installment, I may have to go back and check on more of the Tyrone Swift series which I also liked.

Tomorrow is World Postcard Day, and I've got some postcards almost ready to send. Mine are Halloween themed, but they are postcards, so I'm counting them.
The spider lilies are up and making me happy, the cosmos and lantana are still blooming like mad, the milkweed has little left after the Monarch caterpillar feasts. The second bloom of the daylilies is over, but everything else is going strong.
