Tick Tock! It’s time to check those new releases! Another reason to love Tuesdays, a day when a lot of new books are released.
So far, I’ve downloaded one new book, but it is one I’ve been eagerly awaiting. The Bad Daughter, by Joy Fielding, reminds me that having favorite authors for many years can be like finding a treasure with each new release. A gripping, edge-of-your-seat thriller of family intrigue and dark secrets, from the author of Someone Is Watching and See Jane Run, (probably the first book I read by the author).
Synopsis: There was no shortage of words she could use to describe her father, almost none of them complimentary. Serves you damn right, she thought.
A voice mail from her estranged sister, Melanie, sends Robin’s heart racing and her mind spiraling in a full-blown panic attack. Melanie’s message is dire: Their father, his second wife, and his twelve-year-old stepdaughter have been shot—likely in a home invasion—and lie in the hospital in critical condition.
It’s been more than five years since Robin turned her back on her father when he married her best friend. Five years since she said goodbye to her hometown of Red Bluff, California, and became a therapist. More than two years since Robin and Melanie have spoken. Yet even with all that distance and time and acrimony, the past is always with Robin.
Now she must return to the family she left behind. As she attempts to mend fences while her father clings to life, Robin begins to wonder if there is more to the tragedy than a botched burglary attempt. It seems that everyone—Robin’s mercurial sister, her less-than-communicative nephew, her absent brother, and even Tara, her father’s wife—has something to hide. And someone may have put them all in grave danger.
Definitely another book to enjoy! What, if any, new releases are you eager to start reading?
