The stunning new novel from the international #1 bestselling author — a searing, spellbinding blend of cold-case thriller and psychological suspense.

Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…

Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville's notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.

Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in her father's footsteps to become a lawyer herself — the ideal good daughter. But when violence comes to Pikeville again — and a shocking tragedy leaves the whole town traumatized — Charlie is plunged into a nightmare. Not only is she the first witness on the scene, but it's a case that unleashes the terrible memories she's spent so long trying to suppress. Because the shocking truth about the crime that destroyed her family nearly thirty years ago won't stay buried forever…

Packed with twists and turns, brimming with emotion and heart, The Good Daughter is fiction at its most thrilling.

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

Another great read by Karin. Her meticulous writing continues to leave me holding my kindle in one hand and holding my racing heart in the other. The intriguing storyline was fast paced and left no stone unturned.  What continues to astound me is her intricate detailing of her crime scenes.

Her characters for whatever book she is writing are never perfect.

The Good Daughter was no exception.

At a young age two sisters, Charlie and Sam grew distant upon witnessing and suffering a horrifically violent act and years later another tragedy is what brings them together.

Their relationship is what was the most intriguing part of this book for me.  I was rooting more for their relationship to be restored than finding out the mystery of the book.

Though I miss Sara and Will I will never be disappointed in any book that Karin writes. When Karin writes.. I read..

I am a stay at home mom who rather be reading than doing house work. I am an old fashioned kind of reader. I love my romance books to be romantic with a side of angst thrown in. I also love to read murder mystery suspense books. The more suspenseful the better. I just love to read. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since May 2014.
