theSkimm Book Club Pick!

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.

    Thought provoking—Karen Slaughter usually writes great stories. It was on sale. Long blocks of chapters of similar but not quite—near the same words! I think maybe each was from a different person’s point of view—the sisters—Charlie and Sam. There were some very good parts in the story. Overall, kept my interest. I did give a rating of 4 STARS. I plan on re reading it at a future time, to see if I get a new perspective. Don’t let the negative reviews throw you off. It will not disappoint you! 🐰🐰🐰🐰

  • Don’t waste your money

    By MelissaMMcCann
    This book was awful. As one reviewer noted, It’s terribly repetitive and redundant, some of the characters’ memories are retold too many times. Honestly, just subpar writing and unnecessary details, like “she wiped her eyes with her fingers”. I expected to devour this book and had to force myself to finish it because I kept holding out hope that it would get better. Alas, it did not; this will probably be the last Karen Slaughter book I will ever read.

    As someone that has read all of Karen Slaughter’s books, I can honestly say this book is a true disappointment. If there was a lower rating than one star, I would have given it. It was a waste of time and money. I was disappointed that perhaps her writing has deteriorated this far.

    Wow, what a ride! This one definitely did not disappoint. Karin Slaughter has hit another homer up with this one. I can't wait for more stories. Pieces of Her has been preordered.

    FYI!! If you download the sample, it starts with the first chapter, not the prologue! If you decide to read the book, you need to start with the prologue because obviously the book won’t make any sense! Not sure why the prologue wasn’t given as the sample piece instead of using the first chapter....
  • Great Book

    Great story! Disappointed in continued disrespect towards law enforcement. If it hadn’t been for that this would’ve been a 5 star book. It disgusts me that it continued through the book.
