My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Expected publication July 10th!
I know we’re always told to never judge a book by it’s cover, but truth be told, the cover of Somebody’s Daughter really grabbed my attention when browsing NetGalley and I couldn’t help by request it. It is so simple, but has a mysterious edge that stopped me in my tracks.
Props to David Bell for his incredible writing. The concept of this book was great. An ex-wife a decade in the making showing up on the doorstep of her divorced husband’s new home, proclaiming that her daughter is missing, and SURPRISE, she happens to be his ten year old daughter he didn’t know existed. She begs him to help locate the missing girl. But he is going to have some competition for parental rights because the ex-wife’s boyfriend also thinks he’s the father. And a nearby woman thinks the girl might be her daughter who was kidnapped as an infant a decade ago. One thing is for certain; Felicity is somebody’s daughter. But whose? And where has she gone? Find out in this new psychological thriller!
I really enjoyed this book. It was written over the course of a night, with each chapter functioning as a point in time across a timeline of the night. There were multiple story lines all going on at one time and the way they converged was fantastic.
I will admit I felt the ending was left a bit unresolved which is the reason I ended up giving this 4 stars instead of 5. I would have liked some of the loose ends to be wrapped up a little bit better, but overall it was a really great book and totally worth the read. Would recommend to anybody who likes a good twisty whodunit.
-I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley, David Bell, and Berkley Publishing Group for the opportunity to review.-
