The Bad Daughter by Joy Fielding #BlogTour @BonnierZaffre @joyfielding


Book Description:


Robin Davis hasn’t spoken to her family in six years.
Not since it happened.

Then they’re attacked; left fighting for their lives.
And Robin is back.

All families have their secrets.
And one of theirs may have put them all in terrible danger . . .


My Thoughts:

Having read one of the authors other books and loving it, I couldn’t wait to read more. The Bad Daughter just sounded sooo good so was very much looking forward to reading it.

Admittedly to start with, I did struggle to get in to the book fully. Robin has a few issues and that’s before she finds out about her family. Her head is all over the place and it took a while to settle in but when I got settled, I couldn’t turn those pages quick enough!

Robin’s home town is one of those small ones where everyone knows everyone as well as their business. There was no wonder she couldn’t get away quick enough, especially when we get to meet her sister Melanie who is extremely unwelcoming and doesn’t seem to have a soft bone in her body. Admittedly, having your best friend marry your father is probably another reason that will have you running for the hills.

Even though Robin hasn’t spoke to her family since she found out about Tara and her father, obviously as soon as she hears the shocking news that both them and Tara’s child have been seriously hurt, she knows she has to go straight back.

Like Robin I couldn’t believe that anyone would hurt a child. I wanted to know as much as her and the police as to who could be behind it. I was constantly second guessing each character that came into the story as to whether it was them or not but when the truth does come out, well there was no way I would have ever guessed it right. No way in this world.

The Bad Daughter, once settled into it, had me tearing through the pages to get some answers. It certainly doesn’t disappoint when those answers are revealed. Definitely one to mess with your head!

My thanks to Bonner Zaffire and Netgalley for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.
