    My reviews can also be seen at: https://deesradreadsandreviews.wordpr... As soon as I read the description of this novel, I knew it was one I had to read. I was pretty sure that I was going to love it. I was right. Sarah Walker has just gone through a tough break-up. She?...

    2, this book has more plot holes than swiss cheese stars!!! I'll start this by saying I really, really wanted to like this book. When a novel with such high ratings falls totally and completely flat for me I get a bit nervous about leaving the lone bad review. However, it would be a...

    It's time to do my happy dance, because I've just found another author to love! A kidnapping plot is nothing new; however, Rea Frey manages to excite and intrigue. Kid goes missing, search ensues, blah blah blah. Sound familiar? Well, rest assured because this book does not follow...

    4.5 Compellingly Complicated Stars ????? WOW! You?ve got to love a book that makes you question everything! A book that blurs the line between right and wrong... good and bad... lies and truth... what makes a ?good? mother? Blood? Love? It is the hardest job you...

    3.5 stars for Not Her Daughter, a novel that presents a devastating moral dilemma that will have you speeding toward the end! Note: After a great discussion with the Traveling Sisters group, I've edited this review. Instead of rounding up to 4, I am rounding down to 3. Thank you to Net...

    An emotional, gripping, suspenseful, tug-on-your-heartstrings book that will have you questioning everything you thought you knew about morality and doing what is right! This is not a run-of-the-mill kidnapping book. Rea Frey debuts with a slam-dunk novel about crossing lines, rethinki...

    Emma decided to go into the woods and Amy, her mother, tells her I have told you so many times not to go into the woods. She tells her to get over here right now. It's time to go inside. Emma reaches for her- an apology, or a hug, and Amy lifts her right hand and strikes her daughter a...

    3.5 "What Would You Do?" Stars for Rea Frey's Not Her Daughter. The beginning of the book pulled me in immediately. I devoured the first 60-70% of the story. Emma Townsend is a beautiful, precocious 5 year old girl with a cruel, unhappy and abusive mother and detached father. Sarah...

    An absolutely intense and ethically ambiguous tale, you will be questioning what you believe is right and wrong. Such a thin line here, so much questionable morality. When a 5 year old girl is kidnapped, is it actually what is best for her? Who is the judge of that? What is the line...

    All five stars to this original and captivating story! ? ? ? ? ? I read Not Her Daughter as a group with Berit, Holly, Kendall, Mackenzie, and Melisa, and what a fun and engaging read this was to share. There is much to relate to in this book and much to think about?...

    Happy Pub Day to this beauty!!!!! Put this one on your radar! You won't be disappointed!!! <3. Not Her Daughter is an emotionally gripping tale that explores parenting, child abduction, love, and loss. I really enjoyed Rea Frey's writing style... she easily grips her readers...

    NOT HER DAUGHTER by REA FREY is a compelling, heartbreaking, and conflicting domestic suspense novel that is not your typical child kidnapping story but rather focuses on the moral ramifications around motherhood. This story definitely had me conflicted and questioning almost everythin...

    4.5 stars I could not put this book down! I seriously sat and read this in one sitting. "Emma Grace Townsend. Five years old. Gray eyes. Brown hair. Missing since June." Sarah is still reeling after a painful breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Ethan. She has thrown herself i...

    Could there be something such as a good kidnapping? That?s the question you will be asking yourself while reading Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey. This story is more of a suspense read than a thriller as you know from the beginning what is going on and it?s a matter of waiting it out ...

    When ethics, morality and the law converge, there is sometimes a clash, a loud trumpeting of values, of doing what's right, of defeating the obvious and embracing the integrity of feelings, wishes and desires. Can one reconcile doing what is right and yet break the laws of man and mora...

    4 stars! If there was ever such a thing as a ?good? kidnapping this would be it! While morals and ethics were definitely in play here, I truly enjoyed reading Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey. We all know the kidnapping theme is WAY overdone. We?ve all read tons of books on t...

    4.5 Stars Rounded Down! I must take a moment to admire the beautiful cover photography. Stunning! Apologies in advance, because my thoughts are all over the place on this one. Upon finishing, I?m left with so many mixed emotions. I firmly believe that both women were in the wro...

    This is a really good read, as long as you are okay suspending belief. Too many elements of the story were glossed over in order to 'make it work', but of course in real life it would never happen as it plays out in the book. Sarah Walker is not your typical kidnapper... While tr...

    Not Her Daughteris a chilling thriller that is being made into a "major motion picture." Perhaps this is why there are so many four and five star reviews for this book. However, sadly, I am not going to be one of those rave reviews. This is me swimming upstream once more... Not He...

    2.5 stars. Too much implausibility for me. A five-year-old girl goes missing. A broken family with many hidden secrets. A highly successful young business woman with a weight on her conscience. This book had so much potential, however, the storyline just didn?t add up. The nove...

    4 stars! If there was ever such a thing as a ?good? kidnapping this would be it! While morals and ethics were definitely in play here, I truly enjoyed reading Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey. We all know the kidnapping theme is WAY overdone. We?ve all read tons of books on t...

    2.5 stars. Too much implausibility for me. A five-year-old girl goes missing. A broken family with many hidden secrets. A highly successful young business woman with a weight on her conscience. This book had so much potential, however, the storyline just didn?t add up. The nove...

    4 stars! If there was ever such a thing as a ?good? kidnapping this would be it! While morals and ethics were definitely in play here, I truly enjoyed reading Not Her Daughter by Rea Frey. We all know the kidnapping theme is WAY overdone. We?ve all read tons of books on t...

    This is a really good read, as long as you are okay suspending belief. Too many elements of the story were glossed over in order to 'make it work', but of course in real life it would never happen as it plays out in the book. Sarah Walker is not your typical kidnapper... While tr...

    Not Her Daughteris a chilling thriller that is being made into a "major motion picture." Perhaps this is why there are so many four and five star reviews for this book. However, sadly, I am not going to be one of those rave reviews. This is me swimming upstream once more... Not He...

    This is a really good read, as long as you are okay suspending belief. Too many elements of the story were glossed over in order to 'make it work', but of course in real life it would never happen as it plays out in the book. Sarah Walker is not your typical kidnapper... While tr...

    Not Her Daughteris a chilling thriller that is being made into a "major motion picture." Perhaps this is why there are so many four and five star reviews for this book. However, sadly, I am not going to be one of those rave reviews. This is me swimming upstream once more... Not He...
