The child you never knew knows all your secrets... Out of the blue, Susie Jukes is contacted on social media by Anna, the girl she gave up for adoption fifteen years ago. But when they meet, Anna's home life sounds distinctly strange to Susie and her husband Gabe. And when Anna's adoptive parents seem to overreact to the fact she contacted them at all, Susie becomes convinced that Anna needs her help. But is Anna's own behaviour simply what you'd expect from someone recovering from a traumatic childhood? Or are there other secrets at play here - secrets Susie has also been hiding for the last fifteen years?… (mais)

I really enjoyed The Girl Before and couldn’t wait to dive into another J P Delaney.

Susie and Gabe are happily married and living the dream in their six-bedroomed thatched farmhouse in the middle of nowhere where Gabe, a former member of a globally successful boy band, writes songs for other artistes in his studio and Susie, a former backing singer, is caught up in promoting her new band. Then out of the blue Susie receives a social media message from Anna, her daughter who had been taken away from her as a baby15 years ago, and her whole world is turned upside down.

The “sex and drugs and rock and roll” lifestyle, Social Services protocols and the consequences of both take centre stage. Devastating secrets are revealed, loyalties are tested and Anna’s experiences with her initial foster parents and subsequent adopted family slowly come to light as the story unfolds.

My Darling Daughter is a compulsive page-turner but I didn’t really engage with any of the characters so rather than empathising with them, feeling their pain, admiring their determination, recoiling in shock, I felt a detachment as if events were playing out from a great distance and I was just a casual observer.

The author’s note details extensive research of the Adoption Society, child safe-guarding, therapies and placement orders to add credibility to Anna’s journey. My problem was that I didn’t find Susie, Gabe or their actions and reactions believable.

Good but not as good as The Girl Before. ( )

I've been on a roll recently reading some very good books, all four and five stars. Then I read this one which has broken the spell.

I've read two other books by the author and have enjoyed them so there was no issue reading this one. I go into thrillers blind sometimes without reading the blurb, which I did with book so had no idea what it was about.

This story follows Gabe and Susie, a happy couple with a good life. Out the blue Susie is contacted by a fifteen year girl called Anna who claims she is the daughter Susie gave up for adoption and the story goes on from there.

The chapters are short and are told in turn from the pov of Susie, Gabe and Anna. I found myself straight away invested in the story and working my way through the book very quickly.

The first half of the story I was enjoying but then I found myself getting quite bored and just wanted the story to finish. The story for me then started getting a bit too much especially with some of the antics by Anna.

This story could have been a lot better if it hadn't have gone full on thrillerland. Some situations were ridiculous and I'm not saying couldn't happen but just seemed far fetched.

I was disappointed with this book as I've enjoyed some others. I would probably still read more in the future but just not yet. ( )

The child you never knew knows all your secrets... Out of the blue, Susie Jukes is contacted on social media by Anna, the girl she gave up for adoption fifteen years ago. But when they meet, Anna's home life sounds distinctly strange to Susie and her husband Gabe. And when Anna's adoptive parents seem to overreact to the fact she contacted them at all, Susie becomes convinced that Anna needs her help. But is Anna's own behaviour simply what you'd expect from someone recovering from a traumatic childhood? Or are there other secrets at play here - secrets Susie has also been hiding for the last fifteen years?
