Today I am joining Bookouture's blog tour for Only Daughter by Sarah Denzil. having read a book by the author before, I was excited to get a chance to read this one!
‘Your daughter is dead.’
When Kat Cavanaugh hears the words every mother dreads, her perfect world shatters. She takes in the beautiful long blonde hair, torn yellow dress and chipped blue nail-varnish. It can’t be real.
And then the police add the word ‘suicide’. But Kat refuses to believe them.
Even when they show her the familiar looping handwriting and smudged ink on the note her little girl left behind. She knows her bubbly, vivacious daughter would never take her own life.
As she searches Grace’s perfume-scented room, filled with smiling photos, she uncovers secrets her little girl had been hiding. Secrets that could put her in terrible danger too.
But Kat’s determined to find out what really happened to Grace on the night she died, whatever it takes…
This addictive and heart-pounding psychological thriller will keep you gripped late into the night.
I've read other books by this author, so I knew she is good at crafting an emotional and compelling story. That was certainly the case in Only Daughter. The writing is taut and the story gripping from start to finish, but for me it was the characters that made this book memorable. Kat's grief and conviction that her daughter did not take her own life are palpable, and I felt for her as she embarked on her desperate quest to know what happened to Grace.
Lots of twists and turns I didn't see coming made this a truly engaging mystery that had me guessing until the end.
Only Daughter is a fast-paced, clever thriller perfect for fans of the genre!
