    The Bad Daughter by Joy Fielding is a 2018 Ballantine Books publication. I can?t remember the last time I gave a book a one -star rating. I HATE it so much I almost can?t bear to do it. If this book had been written by a novice, if it was a debut, or independently, or self-pub...

    3 stars rounded down for me. First off, this was my first read by Joy Fielding. I have heard wonderful things about this author and overall, I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't overly impressed. This was a very slow burning mystery that took me awhile to get into. I definitely wou...

    I wanted to like this book more than I did. But I suppose 2018 has been this way, some very good books, some not so. The story goes thus Robin a psychologist gets a phone call from her sister Melanie about a home invasion in which their Dad, step-mom Tara (who actually was Robin?s...

    It's a good read but way too wordy for me. Gave it a 4 because it did read well and told a decent story. In order to give it the proper review - still a 4 rating - I need to think about what were the weak and strong points of this story besides being too wordy. In a couple days I'll d...

    I have become a big Joy Fielding fan over the last year or so (I know I?m a bit late to the party but I got there in the end!) And its only a few weeks ago that I finished The fabulous She?s Not There so I was thrilled to get an early netgalley copy of her next book The Bad Daughte...

    This was another mesmerizing suspense by Joy Fielding. I have read several of her books and have never been disappointed. The same goes for this one. There are so many suspects and I fell for all the traps. A great read that kept me guessing until the end. Thanks to Random Hou...

    Rounded up to 3.5 stars. I've been a fan of Joy Fielding since the early 90's, although I haven't always loved her more recent books. This one was pretty good, though. A bit slow and repetitive in the middle, but the last half picked up and I admit to being surprised by the ending. Ove...

    The Bad Daughter by Joy Fielding is a 2018 Ballantine Books publication. I can?t remember the last time I gave a book a one -star rating. I HATE it so much I almost can?t bear to do it. If this book had been written by a novice, if it was a debut, or independently, or self-pub...

    3 stars rounded down for me. First off, this was my first read by Joy Fielding. I have heard wonderful things about this author and overall, I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't overly impressed. This was a very slow burning mystery that took me awhile to get into. I definitely wou...

    I wanted to like this book more than I did. But I suppose 2018 has been this way, some very good books, some not so. The story goes thus Robin a psychologist gets a phone call from her sister Melanie about a home invasion in which their Dad, step-mom Tara (who actually was Robin?s...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing/Ballentine for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I have read Joy Fielding for years, and I enjoy her books, so I admit I was looking forward to this one. A tough relationship between sisters (and honestly, one of...

    It's a good read but way too wordy for me. Gave it a 4 because it did read well and told a decent story. In order to give it the proper review - still a 4 rating - I need to think about what were the weak and strong points of this story besides being too wordy. In a couple days I'll d...

    At the end of last year I read ?She?s Not There? by Joy Fielding. I really enjoyed that book, so when I was asked to review ?The Bad Daughter? I immediately said yes. And when I read the book description, I was really excited to start reading as soon as possible. In ?Th...

    I love Joy Fielding's novels but have to admit to being not so fond of this one. Which isn't to say I didn't enjoy aspects of it I did, the story is pretty compelling for the most part. I liked the family dynamics portrayed here, especially the relationship between Robin and Melanie...

    The Bad Daughter is my first book by Joy Fielding. It was a simple read and I enjoyed it. A hostile relationship with her sister, Melanie and a complicated past with her father and his second wife, has kept Robin estranged from her family for many years. But when her father's famil...

    I have become a big Joy Fielding fan over the last year or so (I know I?m a bit late to the party but I got there in the end!) And its only a few weeks ago that I finished The fabulous She?s Not There so I was thrilled to get an early netgalley copy of her next book The Bad Daughte...

    This was another mesmerizing suspense by Joy Fielding. I have read several of her books and have never been disappointed. The same goes for this one. There are so many suspects and I fell for all the traps. A great read that kept me guessing until the end. Thanks to Random Hou...

    3 stars rounded down for me. First off, this was my first read by Joy Fielding. I have heard wonderful things about this author and overall, I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't overly impressed. This was a very slow burning mystery that took me awhile to get into. I definitely wou...

    Nachdem ich festgestellt habe, dass es kein Thriller ist, wie ich irrtümlicherweise angenommen habe, muss ich jetzt ein bisschen netter sein. Aber dennoch gebe ich dem Buch nur 3 Sterne, denn ob Thriller oder nicht, zog es sich waaahnsinnig und hätte mich in geruckter Form (und nicht...

    I wanted to like this book more than I did. But I suppose 2018 has been this way, some very good books, some not so. The story goes thus Robin a psychologist gets a phone call from her sister Melanie about a home invasion in which their Dad, step-mom Tara (who actually was Robin?s...

    Robin hasn?t heard from her sister, Melanie, in years so when she received a phone message from her, she knew it couldn?t be good.  Robin gets panic attacks fairly often and the news that her estranged best friend, Tara, had been shot and killed and that Tara?s 12-year-old daugh...

    Robin returns home after she gets a phone call from her estranged sister informing her that their dad , his wife Tara and her daughter Cassidy has been shot in a home invasion . Soon they realize that it was more of a personal attack and with no lack of suspects Robin and the Sheriff h...

    This book was an enjoyable read. Robin is a psychotherapist who suffers anxiety and panic attacks, and her anxiety is extreme when she receives a phone call from her sister telling her that her father, stepmother and daughter have been shot and are in critical condition in what seems t...

    It started out great but about 1/2 way fell flat. I did keep reading and it did keep my interest. But I didn?t love it! ...

    Having read one of the authors other books and loving it, I couldn?t wait to read more. The Bad Daughter just sounded sooo good so was very much looking forward to reading it. Admittedly to start with, I did struggle to get in to the book fully. Robin has a few issues and that?s...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing/Ballentine for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I have read Joy Fielding for years, and I enjoy her books, so I admit I was looking forward to this one. A tough relationship between sisters (and honestly, one of...

    It's a good read but way too wordy for me. Gave it a 4 because it did read well and told a decent story. In order to give it the proper review - still a 4 rating - I need to think about what were the weak and strong points of this story besides being too wordy. In a couple days I'll d...

    At the end of last year I read ?She?s Not There? by Joy Fielding. I really enjoyed that book, so when I was asked to review ?The Bad Daughter? I immediately said yes. And when I read the book description, I was really excited to start reading as soon as possible. In ?Th...

    I love Joy Fielding's novels but have to admit to being not so fond of this one. Which isn't to say I didn't enjoy aspects of it I did, the story is pretty compelling for the most part. I liked the family dynamics portrayed here, especially the relationship between Robin and Melanie...

    The Bad Daughter is my first book by Joy Fielding. It was a simple read and I enjoyed it. A hostile relationship with her sister, Melanie and a complicated past with her father and his second wife, has kept Robin estranged from her family for many years. But when her father's famil...

    I have become a big Joy Fielding fan over the last year or so (I know I?m a bit late to the party but I got there in the end!) And its only a few weeks ago that I finished The fabulous She?s Not There so I was thrilled to get an early netgalley copy of her next book The Bad Daughte...

    3 stars rounded down for me. First off, this was my first read by Joy Fielding. I have heard wonderful things about this author and overall, I wasn't disappointed but I wasn't overly impressed. This was a very slow burning mystery that took me awhile to get into. I definitely wou...

    Thank you to NetGalley and Random House Publishing/Ballentine for an e-ARC of this title in exchange for my honest review. I have read Joy Fielding for years, and I enjoy her books, so I admit I was looking forward to this one. A tough relationship between sisters (and honestly, one of...

    It's a good read but way too wordy for me. Gave it a 4 because it did read well and told a decent story. In order to give it the proper review - still a 4 rating - I need to think about what were the weak and strong points of this story besides being too wordy. In a couple days I'll d...

    At the end of last year I read ?She?s Not There? by Joy Fielding. I really enjoyed that book, so when I was asked to review ?The Bad Daughter? I immediately said yes. And when I read the book description, I was really excited to start reading as soon as possible. In ?Th...

    I love Joy Fielding's novels but have to admit to being not so fond of this one. Which isn't to say I didn't enjoy aspects of it I did, the story is pretty compelling for the most part. I liked the family dynamics portrayed here, especially the relationship between Robin and Melanie...

    The Bad Daughter is my first book by Joy Fielding. It was a simple read and I enjoyed it. A hostile relationship with her sister, Melanie and a complicated past with her father and his second wife, has kept Robin estranged from her family for many years. But when her father's famil...

    I have become a big Joy Fielding fan over the last year or so (I know I?m a bit late to the party but I got there in the end!) And its only a few weeks ago that I finished The fabulous She?s Not There so I was thrilled to get an early netgalley copy of her next book The Bad Daughte...

    This was another mesmerizing suspense by Joy Fielding. I have read several of her books and have never been disappointed. The same goes for this one. There are so many suspects and I fell for all the traps. A great read that kept me guessing until the end. Thanks to Random Hou...

    Rounded up to 3.5 stars. I've been a fan of Joy Fielding since the early 90's, although I haven't always loved her more recent books. This one was pretty good, though. A bit slow and repetitive in the middle, but the last half picked up and I admit to being surprised by the ending. Ove...

    The Bad Daughter is my first book by Joy Fielding and I enjoyed it so much that I plan to order some of her earlier books. It was a real page turner with great characters and a suspenseful story line. The main character is Robin, a psychologist who has been estranged from her family...

    Thanks to Random House for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review! THE BAD DAUGHTER was my introduction to Joy Fielding. I've heard nothing but great things about her writing and past books, so I was ready to start! This one was a slower burn than I was expecting, so de...
