Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “The Favorite Daughter” by Kaira Rouda, May 2019


fullsizeoutput_410aWOW!! Kaira Rouda, Author of “The Favorite Daughter” has written an intense, captivating, enthralling, riveting, edgy, suspenseful novel. The Genres for this novel are Fiction, Psychological Thriller, Mystery and Suspense. The timeline for this story is in the present, within the last year, and goes to the past when it pertains to the characters or events in the story. The author describes her characters as quirky, dysfunctional, complex and complicated.

Jane and David Harris and their daughter Betsy are reaching the year anniversary of the tragedy that killed their daughter Mary.  During the last year, Jane has been seeing a therapist and had been taking medication to deal with life. Now Jane is determined to get it all together.

The Harris family may seem like the perfect family, even with the tragedy. The problem is that every member of this family has a dark secret, and it makes it very difficult to tell when the truth is being told. Jane keeps track and is determined to know what is going on.

Some notes arrive letting Jane know that someone thinks that Mary’s accidental death was not an accident. Immediately, I ask who, what, why, how and when? Everyone does seem to be a suspect.   I highly recommend this highly intense and suspenseful novel.

  1. Great review! I couldn’t decide if Jane or Paul (Best Day Ever) was a bigger narcissist. In either case, I loved to hate Jane and couldn’t stop reading.
