The Silent Daughter Kindle Edition
"Schoolgirl missing", the ticker reads, and the camera cuts to a girl’s face. Blonde hair waterfalling over her shoulders, serious eyes, lips a little parted like she’s about to speak. That’s when I realize I’ve been holding my breath, because the gasp when I inhale almost chokes me.
Sadie Kelly has lost her job. Until last month, she was a teacher at Horton College – the same high school she went to ten years ago along with her best friend, Fiona. But Fiona died in a tragic accident on their graduation night, and since then nothing’s been the same. Now Sadie’s back in her home town, living with Fiona’s mother, the woman who has watched over Sadie since she was a little girl, and the one person Sadie would do anything to protect. But when Sadie hears that star student Devon Hundley has gone missing from Horton College, everything changes. Because Devon is the daughter of Philip Hundley - a wealthy school donor, local doctor, and a man Sadie knows all too well. And Sadie can't help remembering the last time she saw Devon - and heard her whisper something Sadie's been trying ever since to forget...
A 2020 top new release, The Silent Daughter is domestic suspense at its best: a twisty page-turner about family secrets and dangerous lies for fans of Diane Chamberlain, Liane Moriarty, and Adele Parks.

There are 2 things that I want in a book. Firstly not wanting to put it down and secondly not wanting the book to end. The book wasn’t outstanding but certainly held my interest. The book did meet my reading expectations and as such I would recommend it.
The characters were engaging & the story line captivating, with more twists than a corkscrew! Loved it!
P when I found out who did it and moved quickly to the end

Suspense builds throughout the book, and there are some really surprising twists which all come together in a satisfying way. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm looking forward to what else might come from this author if this is anything to go by!
I was pretty annoyed that Sadie kept being called Miss Kelly then it would change to Ms Kelly and then revert back to Miss. Needlessly irritating.
Tupperwares needed capitalising, there were apostrophe mistakes and for some reason, nearing the end, speechmarks were eschewed in favour of apostrophes !! THAT was very peculiar and also very distracting for me. Thirteen was written and not thirteenth, some sentences were ended by hyphens, again needlessly and quite peculiarly, there were words missed from sentences here and there as well. I did find the mention of The News of the World an odd one since we're in America in the book.
I was definitely caught out by the resolution of the story here. I was dead proud that I'd figured it out only to learn......I hadn't !!! Hahaha.....some things never change ! I liked Sadie, though almost every person featured had secrets or told lies ! You just knew the proverbial would eventually hit the fan if they persisted. A little passage about a robin made me cry and then I was laughing when I read how the author used to love reading boarding school stories (in her end-notes) as I did as well....the St Clare's and Mallory Towers stories were terrific and I was always quite jealous reading them as they seemed to have so much more fun at those schools than I was having at the comprehensive !!
I'll definitely try another story by this author as she certainly spins a good and intriguing yarn and just hope it's a little "tidier" is all.
(Oh, another reviewer mentioned the F word being slung around and I must say I hadn't noticed it used once) !!
A real page turner for me, and the ending took me by surprise, it the usual bit gets girl, just enriched life
