Synopsis

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn’s happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville’s notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father’s footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it’s a case that unleashes the terrible memories she’s spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won’t stay buried forever…

Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.

My thoughts

I read this on audiobook and out of the few audio books I have listened to, this is the fastest read. I read this in under two weeks while others took over a month.

I think after The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, I had wanted to listen to more thrillers/ Mystery books on audiobook. I really enjoyed this book and found it to be fast paced and very interesting. It got me hooked right from the start,and I wanted to keep listening to it all the time. I don’t read mystery/thrillers as paperbacks but I think audiobooks is the right route for me to go to read these types of books.

I liked the different main characters and thought that they had a lot of depth and substance. I think my favourite characters would have to be Charlie and Sam. I can’t decide which sister is my favourite. They are both so strong and have through so much.

I recommend this book to anyone who wants to start reading more thrillers and I highly recommend to check out the audiobook.

5/5
