Jessica lost her 5-year-old daughter Beth in a playground accident seventeen years earlier. She's never really come to terms with what happened despite moving on with life and starting a new family. But now her past has come back to haunt her. Someone's determined to make her suffer and Jess is convinced it's connected to events from all those years ago. When weird things begin to happen in her home, Jess realises someone is out to make her pay for past mistakes. I thought The Daughter was an excellent psychological thriller. It had me so engrossed I really didn't want to put it down. There were plenty of wonderful twists and turns; just when I thought I had it all figured out, another spanner was thrown into the works - brilliant! Exactly the sort of book I love to read. Jessica's loss of her daughter was expressed beautifully and handled with great sensitivity. It was simply heartbreaking. What more can I say? An excellent plot with a spectacular ending. Buy the book, sit back and be prepared to be chilled and thrilled!

Beth is 5-years-old. Her mum, Jess Davies, is quite protective of her. Dropping her off at school, Jess feels uneasy leaving Beth today but when she sees her playing with her little friend, Cara, she realizes she needs to stop being so worried all the time. A couple of hours later, Jess gets a call at work saying Beth has had an accident and to get to the hospital. Upon arrival, she learns that Beth died immediately when she fell from a school jungle gym. Beth and her husband, Ben, grieve as they bury their little girl. Although Ben is a loving man, Jess feels huge guilt from something that happened in her past shortly before they got married. So, Jess decides to leave Ben and start her life over somewhere else. Years later, Jess has married Ed and has a 2-year-old son, James. They are very busy taking care of their active child as they look to sell their home and move to another one. It’s when they are viewing a prospective home to buy that Jess’s past comes slamming into her face and her world turns upside down. This is the type of book that a reader cannot put down. I was drawn into this story and all of the believable characters that the author created. The book is broken up into two parts. I wish I could give more hints about the book but that would simply create spoilers. Suffice to say that this story will pull at the reader’s heartstrings making them at once sad and then terrified. Don’t miss this one. It’s a keeper. Copy provided by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Something tragic happens to Jess's daughter. To distance herself from the guilt she feels, she starts over. With a new husband and a young son, she still tries to make peace with herself. But someone doesn't want her to forget the mistakes she has made or forgive herself for them. They don't think she's suffered enough. Someone is terrifying her and her family. The first chapters are a heart-wrenching, one tissue won't be enough, tearjerker. And then 17 years later the fright begins. Who would want to hurt her? Ex-husband? Ex-Lover? Present Husband? Jess can't believe any of them would intentionally set out to hurt her. This is a well written psychological thriller with twists and turns that don't quit. The ending is a never-saw-it-coming surprise. This is a compelling read that you won't want to miss. Many thanks to the author / Bookouture / Netgalley for the advanced digital copy of this compelling book. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

How does a young Mom move on with her life when her five year old is dead from a school yard accident? Jess needs to get her life together, but she can't. The father of her daughter's wife, is stalking her and threatening her. The plot thickens. The years go on, and Jess is finally able to move on with her new husband and son, But.... is she? This is a book that will have you on the edge of your seat as you quickly read each page of the novel. Definitely not the ending I was expecting and I was not disappointed! Well written, with so many details to keep the reader enthralled!
