Dallas’ Pick: The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
The more adult thrillers I read the more hooked I become. I picked up the Good Daughter because I needed an audiobook to listen too while I was working on a few projects. It just happened to be on the shelf and I had no clue what it was about. The introduction started out with two guys breaking into a house; killing the mother, shooting the older daughter in the head then burying her alive, and raping the other daughter while she tried to escape and get help. Of course after that I was hooked, I listened to that book every chance I got. It kept me in circles with all the plot twist and turns. While I was reading it I could not stop telling people that they needed to read it and how wonderful it was and I hadn’t even finished the book yet! Throughout the book you meet up with the sisters and their father as adults to see how they adjusted to life after their accident, or how they did not adjust to life so well. Of course the past has a way of coming back and biting us in the butt. The sisters have to go back to their old town and even to their old house, some people are less than happy to see them back. After much courage, tears, and fighting they attempt to rise victorious against every person that ever did them wrong.
