I loved the dual narratives, one from Rebecca 'Bec' Winter as she tells her own story leading up to the day she vanished in 2003 and the other from the imposter who has stepped into Bec's shoes. As the days go by, our imposter cannot help but question what happened to the young woman she masquerades as. As she slips deeper into Bec's skin, she attempts to solve the puzzle that is Bec’s disappearance as well as the mystery surrounding her newfound family and friends.
Another thing that stood out for me was the lengths the imposter went to in order to avoid being exposed and the steps she took to evade the officers investigating her case. The twists, the paranoia, and the foreboding all kept my heart in my throat. I may have begun to suspect what happened, but I wasn't prepared for the depth of it.
I love a well written book filled with suspicious characters, and in Only Daughter, I couldn't trust a single one. But after reading this addictive story, I know who I can trust – author Anna Snoekstra; and I can't wait to read what she writes next.
A huge thank-you to the publisher for providing this ARC via Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review.
Warning: I'm very sensitive when it comes to certain subject matter (animals), and the inclusion of particular details toward the end were very difficult for me and I had to skim those. But this was only a small part of the story and I understand how the author would feel it necessary to include. I know sensitive readers such as myself would be tempted to skip the book, but I’d recommend skimming over skipping as it is a small but relevant portion and the overall story is a fascinating one.
