Rating: 3/5 stars
I’ve read a ton of thrillers and although some of them were five stars, nothing pulled me in quite like this one did. The moment I opened Somebody’s Daughter I was hooked. The story itself was gripping and mysterious, I had to know what happened.
Who took Felicity? Was she ever really missing? Was her mother responsible?
Unfortunately as everything unravels, and boy does it unravel, the story was lost in between all the nonsense. This isn’t the first story of Bell’s I’ve read and I can say from past experience that this may just be the way he writes; with an abundance of characters, some who belonged in the story and some who seemed as if they were fillers to keep the book going. Sometimes it really works, pulling me in even deeper. However, it didn’t pay off this time. There were holes and lots of them.
What I loved most about this book is that even with 418 pages and over 80 chapters, it’s fast-paced, quick and the very definition of what a suspense novel should be. It keeps you guessing up until the very end. Hell, even after finishing I’m seeking answers.
Thank you, Berkley and Penguin Random House for the ARC!
