Degree of suspense to the plot but our interest ebbed and waned so severely we might have put this down if we hadn t lined up for the hardbackThe plot revolves around Ellie Cavanaugh a 30 year old investigative reporter fighting unsuccessfully the parole of Rob Westerfield convicted some 20 years earlier for the murder of Ellie s sister Andrea Though only seven at the time Ellie s testimony in court weighed heavily in the guilty verdict But Rob is being sprung on parole and his wealthy family is pursuing all means including illegal ones to have him retried and acuitted The rest of the book is basically the war between Rob s antics and Ellie s fact finding and in the end Andrea s murder plus another one from long ago are all neatly re solved and tied up with ribbons In between Ellie is harassed and followed and injured etc yet never succumbs like virtually all of Clark s leading ladies no matter the hurdles or the challenges Some all too convenient helpers bail Ellie out of than one predicamentSo what we find is not really the recipe for a whopping best seller A dash of suspense is overwhelmed by plodding story lines improbable action implausible developments and a leading lady who after all is said and done is not that easy to really care about Clark s innately good story crafting and writing are not enough to make this cake rise and shine I have read a few books by Mary Higgins Clark but this was by far my favorite Ellie was just a young girl when her sister was murdered Now years later the man who went away for her murder is getting out of prison On a road filled with danger Ellie is on the search for evidence against Rob that will get him sent back to prison This story was a twisted web of lies betrayal and a families love The dedication that Ellie "Shows Is What Really Made This Book She Was Just "is what really made this book She was just young girl and was put through so much bad and now she is grown and still lives daily with the nowledge of her sisters death No matter how much danger she is in she still fights to see her sisters iller brought to justice and along the way she helps her family friends and other

L reviews for this book which mentioned a twist that I would never see coming an ending that would blow me away So I expected both of those things I shouldn t have so that s my fault The synopsis to the book never promised me that so I "went in with a false impression of this "in with a false impression of this To sum up this meandering review If you like dark thrillers in the vain of Gillian Flynn This book isn t for youIf you like a fast paced book in the vain of a late 90 s Lifetime or ABC movie of the week Then pick up Daddy s Little Girl
I didn t love this book but its not a baddidn t love this book but its not a bad its just not for me It started off pretty flat despite it was opened with the finding of a dead body in a garage Ellie was just 8 years old when she found her sister dead But surprisingly enough she didn t look like an 8 yo girl to me The way she handled the situation and how she was treated it was so hard to believe Why she would blame her self so much about her sister s death It s beyond normal If I were Ellie I would blame my self too but not so intense like she did After that I would spend some days crying until I m tired That s what an eight years old girl supposed to do right But hey my patience s eventually paid off The plot twist is amazing And it comes to a three stars from me This enthralling story is a first person narrative told by Ellie Cavanaugh the 30 year old survivor to a murder that devastated her family when she was only 7 She is now an investigative reporter and has twice gone to the parole board to fight the parole of the man convicted of the brutal murder of her big sister Andrea For 23 years she had been convinced her sister s murderer was in prison but now he and his extremely wealthy family are fighting to prove her wrongThis story twists as Ellie researches the murder with several episodes along the way that could have turned out much nastier The episodes only convince her that her research is bearing fruit and it comes to a powerful conclusion There was only one area that was never cleared up for me but it would probably have been a dangling teaser regardless view spoiler When Ellie s picture was displayed as an inmate in a mental hospital she published the truth but no was ever mentioned and I would have liked at least one person to say okay now we understand hide spoiler Fantastic read climaticsuspensefulvery engagingperseverance in never giving up in what you believe is the truthjust eep fighting for justicea well written story paperback Inconsistent pace and predictable ending spoil the suspenseWe re not likely to skip a novel by mama Clark but this her 21st is far from her best A good start leads into an absolute slug of a middle book with most of the exciting action reserved for the three page epilogue Ironically there is a reasonable.
