This is the second suspense that I read in a row and again it kept my interest and I read it in two days as I couldn't put it down. But when I got to the resolution I was disappointed. I thought it could have had a more interesting ending. There was one part that I found a little off.
I didn't understand why Abby isn't more upset that Cory broke into her room. And didn't she question how he knew to break in? Had he been following her? That part really bothered me
There was a lot of language 17 blasphemy, 11 F* word, 11 S***, 6 H***, 1 B***

Overall the story kept my interested but it wasn't an amazing book overall.

Twisty, a dash of nostalgia, interesting characters, and a well described location...All the good things I've come to expect from the author.

Twisty, turny, and expertly narrated - I found myself easily captivated in this thriller. The story took a while to pick up speed, but even in the beginning I was intrigued enough to see where the story would leave. After a tragedy claimed twelve of their classmates and teachers, the nine remaining survivors get together each year on the anniversary of the accident to stay connected. This year however, they are down to just seven. A lot happened that fateful night and the survivors weren't entirely truthful with the police, their yearly gathering helps reinforce that they all have each others backs - even if they don't entirely like or trust each other. But this year on the tenth anniversary of the tragedy - things are going wrong. Are they being followed? Why are people asking questions?1 The ending wasn't a blockbuster, but it was a surprise. The narration was fantastic and is really what kept me going.… (more)

Daughter of Mine is Megan Miranda's new novel.

Hazel Sharp hasn't been back to Mirror Lake for almost a decade. There are just too many memories there - especially the disappearance of her mother. Why didn't she take Hazel with her? It's the death of her father that brings her back to the family home in Mirror Lake. Old disagreements and resentments rear there ugly heads as Hazel and her two brothers argue over the will. And other secrets are exposed as the water level in the lake drops...My answer for whodunit changed frequently.

Daughter of Mine is a bit of a slow burn in the beginning as the scene is set, the characters introduced and the crux of the matter is exposed. Family matters, old hurts, actions, secrets, and more keep the narrative moving forward. I thought Miranda did a great job of drawing the relationships between all the players. The headers of each chapter lists the days without rain - and the level of the lake keeps dropping.

I chose to listen to Daughter of Mine. The narrator was Inés del Castillo. I've enjoyed other books she's read. Her voice matched the mental image I had created for Hazel. She provides many other voices, including men's, that are believable. The speed is good. She enunciates well and her voice is pleasant to listen to. She interprets Miranda's work and uses her voice to capture the emotions and action of the book. A good performance.
