Book review: Only Daughter by Sarah A. Denzil

Only Daughter by Sarah A. Denzil

The must-read psychological thriller for 2019 from the million-copy-bestselling author of Silent Child.

‘Your daughter is dead.’

When Kat Cavanaugh hears the words every mother dreads, her perfect world shatters. She takes in the beautiful long blonde hair, torn yellow dress and chipped blue nail-varnish. It can’t be real.

And then the police add the word ‘suicide’. But Kat refuses to believe them. 

Even when they show her the familiar looping handwriting and smudged ink on the note her little girl left behind. She knows her bubbly, vivacious daughter would never take her own life.

As she searches Grace’s perfume-scented room, filled with smiling photos, she uncovers secrets her little girl had been hiding. Secrets that could put her in terrible danger too.

But Kat’s determined to find out what really happened to Grace on the night she died, whatever it takes…

This addictive and heart-pounding psychological thriller will keep you gripped late into the night.

My review...

Well that was intense.....the only words I can utter right now are gripping and compelling. If you like a story that has you second guessing every movement then this is the story for you. I was pulled into the plot on page one and read on with baited breath in complete anticipation to get to that all important reveal moment and what a moment that was. Just when I thought I had hit the nail on the head the story did a complete 180 which left me gob smacked. I loved it!

Kat was a revelation as far as characters go. Completely flawed and broken beyond repair, in her eyes, with a survival nature that is both terrifying and awe inspiring. Her love for her daughter, Grace, is fierce with a passion that burns to boiling point to fuel a campaign to catch a killer.

Only Daughter is a riveting read filled with twists and turns at every corner that I couldn't put down. I'm looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
