Only Daughter was a page turner – I started reading it last night with a glass of wine or two until I fell asleep and the first thing I did when I woke up was fumbling around in search of my tablet so I can pick up from where I left off. This time with a cup or two of coffee in hand and I did not put my tablet back down until I read the very last page.
Usually I just feel anxious and suspicious when I read thrillers. However, Only Daughter had me feeling a bit creep out as well. Nothing supernatural or anything and nothing creepy-crawly-scary, just that uneasy feeling and I crazily loved it. All I know is if someone was to whisper or scream out for me for my attention my heart would probably have jumped out of my chest like it’s no big deal.
With all the twists and turns, some were predictable and some were unexpected but the last quarter of the story was breathtakingly-shocking. I never saw it coming, as the truth started to reveal itself. Even when it was pretty much in your face revealed, I found myself in denial in a small way. I loved every bit of it. I love when I read and think I know; only to find out my suspicions are completely wrong.
Now as I am writing this, my thoughts keep going back to how the story played out. I can’t specifically say since it will spoil the story in its entirety, so don’t mind me when it starts sounding like I am writing in code. But as my thoughts kept going back, I find myself asking questions if I were in all these characters’ shoes… would I have handled the situation the same way? I HIGHLY DOUBT IT! I strongly feel a certain way. I know there are gray areas in life but sometimes it’s just simply black or white no matter how many different angles you want to look at it doesn’t make it right when it’s flat out wrong.
However I can feel the frustration, the fear, and the helplessness that was radiating off some of the characters. Only Daughter is a gripping story. For those that enjoy a story with unforeseen turn of things; Only Daughter is calling your name. This book definitely lives up to its genre of Psychological Thriller, even as I am wrapping up my thoughts my head is still spinning from the way the story unfolded.
