‘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.
Wow, just wow! I have only just recently started reading this authors books and think this is the fourth one of hers I have read. They have all been gripping reads but none more so than this one.
Right from the very first page, I was hooked. I pretty much read nearly all this book in one go as that was how compelling it was. Kat is not an overly likeable character, but as a mother, I totally connected with her and what she was going through.
No parent wants to believe their child has taken their own life. I was fully behind Kat in wanting answers and believing there was more to her daughters death than first meets the eye. As the story goes on, along with Kat, we find out more about her daughter and who she actually was. It really makes you question how well we truly know our children.
Only Daughter is a highly addictive read with so many twists and turns. I absolutely loved it! It had me questioning everyone and everything and I loved how much it messed with my head. It’s one of those books you want to rush and tell your friends about so they can read it to so you can talk about it, as that’s how much it blew my mind. Brilliant!
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
