After a lifetime of living life for the benefit of her mum, Jess finally meets a man who not only seems to truly care about her for who she is, but is encouraging her to follow her own hopes and dreams and live her life for herself. But what does it mean for her when he is suddenly gone and not only does she now have to navigate without him, but even worse it’s seems the police think she has something to do with his disappearance.
The Perfect Daughter is a compelling read full of manipulation, control and a complex relationship between mother and daughter and I was all there for it! Stone entices the reader straight off the bat with an opening chapter that had me instantly hooked and from there each chapter left me wanting more! The deeper you get into it the story the more toxic it becomes and with its sinister undertones simmering in the background, its claustrophobic vibe throughout as well as an unreliable narrator, makes for a thrilling read. I throughly enjoyed this tale and outcome which left me feeling very satisfied.
Alex Stone is a new author to me and one I am so glad to have been introduced to. She certainty knows how to weave a tale and I look forward to reading more from her.
