Not My Daughter - Suzy K Quinn || Blog Tour

I told my daughter a terrible lie…

Lorna never told her sixteen-year-old daughter the chilling truth about her real father. But one morning, she finds Liberty missing — and realizes the teenager has left to find the man she once fled from…

A heart-stopping and emotional psychological thriller from the New York Times bestselling author, perfect for fans of Liane Moriarty’s The Hypnotist’s Love Story.

I love Suzy when she writes thrillers, i haven't really ventured into her other genres but i know everytime i read a thriller its a hit.

Lorna has told a lie, but this lie has impacted her whole life, her daughters life. Her daughter who is now 16 and wants to know her father. One morning, she wakes to find Liberty has gone to find him. However Lorna is frantic, she can't go find him, because then things wont be the same again. Yet she does and he isn't all he seems. Liberty despite been strong minded starts to change too.

Wow, this was just clever. It was scary, as a reader you are really not sure who to believe, I wondered why Lorna was so frantic, wondered why Michael wasnt as described, why Liberty was behaving the way she did but it all comes to an explosion and wow - it blew me away.

Lorna was once a naive, young girl and fell in love, as an adult i would say she is determined, stronger than she has ever been but also very worried. She raised Liberty to be strong, independent but is determined to keep her close by, which results in the running away.

I really enjoyed getting to know the characters, as we discover them over time, we learn about Lornas past and the present. The story paces back and forwards which i really enjoy, you get a snippet of the past and then a glimpse of what is going on in the present before whisking us back. It was a fast paced read that had me flying through it, in fact i read all of it in one single sitting! I was hooked. Even as a reader, your mind starts to get twisted and you are not sure if you can actually trust it, i mean i was forming my judgements and then starting to question them. A sure sign of a brilliant thriller.
