Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little

Lovereading view...

A great American thriller debut. Janie Jenkins is released from prison on a technicality. Ten years earlier she killed her mother and is now determined to unravel the mystery of her last words. The world's media is inevitably on her trail as she makes a byline for a small town where the secret might reside, but Janie has the looks, the guile and the connections. A dizzy road movie of a book that paradoxically evokes The Devil Wears Prada alongside Gone Girl, this is both excruciatingly funny and gripping, a rare combination. Fast-paced, atmospheric and with a sassy under suspicion heroine who kicks ass with rapier wit, this is a wildly entertaining romp full of surprises and striking characters. A veritable hoot. ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

After ten years in prison Jane Jenkins, suffering from amnesia, decides to find out if she really did murder her mother of which she was accused. Returning to her roots under a new name, Rebecca Parker, she discovers some ugly truths. She comes from a prominent, wealthy, socialite family and yet her mother came from a poor family. The secrets behind all this are nicely revealed but it’s the final twist that really makes you sit up here! Written in an easy, flowing style, it is a quick read.

If you like Elizabeth Little you might also like to read books by Yannick Murphy, Sophie Mckenzie and Paula Daly.

Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little

'As soon as they processed my release Noah and I hit the ground running. A change of clothes. A wig. An inconspicuous sedan. We doubled back once, twice, then drove south when we were really headed east. In San Francisco we had a girl who looked like me board a plane to Hawaii. Oh, I thought I was so clever. But you probably already know that I'm not.' LA IT girl Janie Jenkins has it all. The looks, the brains, the connections. The criminal record. Ten years ago, in a trial that transfixed America, Janie was convicted of murdering her mother. Now she's been released on a technicality and she's determined to unravel the mystery of her mother's last words, words that send her to a tiny town in the very back of beyond. But with the whole of America's media on her tail, convinced she's literally got away with murder, she has to do everything she can to throw her pursuers off the scent. She knows she really didn't like her mother. Could she have killed her?
