Ohhhh..this is a good one!!

Hazel’s father died, and in addition to the shock of his death was the shock that he left the family home ONLY to her and not her brothers. That caused a good deal of bad feelings.

While she was home for the funeral more shocking things happened.

One of these things had to do with their mother who had taken every penny out of her husband's bank accounts, any jewelry in the house, and anything else of value and just left without notice or any trace of her when Hazel was sixteen.

Things seemed to have gone the wrong way after their mother left and since the years that Hazel had left Mirror Lake.

Or had things always been going the wrong way for Hazel in this small town and with her family and she hadn't realized it?

How could Hazel have missed all that had been going on while she was growing up and especially for the past few years?

What else could happen?

What else would be revealed?

Who really knew what happened and knows what is happening now?

Find out in this tense family drama that reveals secrets and more missing characters.

Ms. Miranda certainly knows how to weave a storyline that keeps you turning the pages with a surprising, reveal-all ending.

You won’t be able to put DAUGHTER OF MINE down. 5/5

Thank you to the publisher for a copy of this book. All opinions are my own

I originally read this back in 2020, and to be fair, I didn't remember much, so I decided to reread it again. It's been a while since I was able to finish a book in a day, but I could not put this down.

⚠️ there are some triggers in this book. If you suffer from anxiety or depression I do not recommend this book ⚠️ suicide TW ⚠️

As someone who deals with depression and anxiety, I feel like I could relate on certain levels.

Delaney suffers from a traumatic experience that almost ended her life, but by some miracle, she survived. She doesn't understand why she was granted this gift of a second chance at life while others weren't. She sees death everywhere and feels it.

What I got out of reading this is that sometimes in life We go through something so difficult that even though we are ok, our mind doesn't quite get the memo. We can rationalize all we want, However
The depression and anxiety truly get such a tight grip of us that we feel like we can't breathe. It's best summarized in Decker's (Delaney's best friend since childhood) point of view. He asks, "Is this how it feels to drown? Like the world is folding in on you? Like there's nowhere left to go but some place inside?"

"And then I understood: the worst part about drowning is the undying hope that maybe, just maybe, you're not."

It's a valuable lesson to learn that even though we are not immortal and at some point we will all die, it's best to enjoy the moments we get, tell the ones we love them while we have them.. look up at the sky and appreciate the blue skies and fluffy clouds.

A lot of us feel like we are drowning inside but forget that we can just as easily grasp for air, and we will be just fine.

5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I felt, I cried, I grasped ❤️

Suspenseful with unexpected turns and twists.

This book was full of secrets hidden for years that were beginning to come to light. Every time I believed that what Hazel was discovering might point to a suspect, I found myself lost again in the pages that followed. The plot focusing on the Holt family was very engaging and intriguing.

Perry Holt, a father and respected detective, dies. His death brings his daughter back to town after many years of absence. To the family's surprise, it is Hazel who inherits the family home. And she wasn't even his daughter. Why did he leave this house to her and not to his sons? The climax begins when a second car is found in the water behind the Holt’s family home. It belonged to Hazel's mother, who left Hazel behind with the Holt family.

This book surprised me. I was intrigued with the plot, and constant suspicions, drama and secrets. The pacing was perfect, and it was hard to put this book down.

Such a Quiet Place is a thriller by Megan Miranda. It's set in a private neighbourhood with an active homeowner's association, a beautiful lake view, and friendly residents. Harper Nash has lived there for years, and commutes to her job across the lake at the community college. All was well unti Harper's neighbours are murdered by Ruby, Harper's friend and roommate. It is a shock when, 14 months after her conviction, Ruby is released, the charges dropped, and Ruby moves back in with Harper, much against her wishes. The neighbourhood turns into a place of tension and suspicion. Has Ruby been wrongly released? Was she innocent all along? Or is she still a threat, and one now living in their neighbouhood again.

I didn't like this book especially. I found that having Harper narrate the entire novel was tiring. I longed to see other people's views. I longed for Harper to stop jumping from theory to theory and becoming increasingly paranoid. The book had all the elements needed for a good thriller, but in this case the elements didn't coalesce, and the book didn't work.
