The Daughter by Lucy Dawson – Book Review

Oh My God!  Wow this book has it all, it was intense and had me gripped from the first page right through to the end.  I was literally sitting on the edge of my seat absolutely riveted and unable to put the book down. It was heartbreakingly sad and full of emotion, despair and fear.

What a story! When I say this book had it all, it was dark in places, had moments of joy, had deep dark secrets, mental health issues and a very clever cold bloodied killer. You will never in a million years guess the killer it was hidden so well.

The characters were so believable, every single one of them you could feel sorry for, cry with, laugh with and empathise with.

I loved this book, it was a great start to my 2018 reading list.  I highly recommend this book and give it a solid 5 stars.
