(The Good Daughter #1)
Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father—Pikeville's notorious defense attorney—devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond r...more

It's not a bad thing. Slaughter more closely resembles my beloved Tana French in style, making her books more about the detectives or, in this case, lawyers than about the actual crime/mystery. It's a clever technique that always ensures I'm invested, whe...more
Anyone who knows me well knows that I’m a Grade-A, Karin Slaughter junkie. I can’t get enough of her stuff; it’s like crack for nerds who like all the dark things in their reading repertoire. I began devouring her books right around my 18th birthday and have continued to do so for almost 10 years. She’s the only living author that I have continued to read for such an extended period of time; I tell you all this so that you are aware just how good these books truly are. I’m going to k...more
I also want to talk a little bit about the story. (With extremely, incredibly light spoilers in that I tell you who some of the characters are, but not what happens, especially when the aliens come and impregnate the men ha ha okay I'm just kidding about that, but you've been warned!)
With the GOOD DAUGHTER, I decided to do another stand-alone because...more
All hail the queen of crime fiction—Karin Slaughter has done it again. This clever author has penned another compelling and tantalizingly twisted thriller in her signature no-holds-barred approach. Not that I doubted her brilliance for even a second; there’s a reason she’s been one of my very favorites since stepping foot in Grant County more than a decade ago.
As readers we all find ourselves hanging on to an author’s every word for different reasons. For me, Karin Slaughter has alwa...more
After reading the description and the prequel for this novel, I knew I had to read it soon. This book was INTENSE! It honestly had me feeling ALL THE FEELS. I really did both laugh and cry while reading this novel. 'The Good Daughter' had me in its clutches from page one until the very end, and I'm still feeling the after-effects.
The book opens in 1989. Samantha Quinn is fifteen years-old and her younger sister, Charlie is...more

I have officially drank the Karin Slaughter kool-aid. It's not that I had an aversion to reading a book by Karin Slaughter, it's just that I kind of kept putting it off. Boy, what a mistake! This book was OUTSTANDING. It was chilling, explosive, and shocking. Those are just three words that I could use to describe this book. It was also so much more. In all honesty, I don't feel there is much more that I can add to the overwhelming amount of positive reviews that already exist for this novel, bu...more
This is not a series! I just found this out today. Also you do not need to read Last Breath which is a novella. I think this was listed as a series just to get you to buy the novella.
I think this was a cheap shot. Also very disappointed because I loved this book and was so looking forward to this being a series.
This is a stand alone. Did anyone else think this was a series or is it just me?
I just loved this book. I love Karin Slaughter and she has one hell of a good imagination. I just don't kno...more
Deeply disturbing intense read filled with drama, suspense, and unspeakable trauma. The Good Daughter is not for the faint hearted.
Teenage sisters Sam and Charlie experience a traumatic and torturous event. What happens to them scars them both literally and figuratively for life. Nearly 30 years later, the past they worked so hard to bury comes back to haunt them as they deal with the fall out of a school shooting. Buried secrets emerge about Sam and Charlotte’...more
Someone in the community clearly has it in for Rusty, the family home is burned to the ground, and as we meet the family, they're living in an old farmhouse, that's seen better days. However, before they even get a chance to make this place a h...more
TW: graphic murder, graphic rape, and miscarriages
I really enjoyed this story. I found it to be a strong psychological thriller as my head was constantly twisting between what is true and what is meant to be misleading. I will say, certain points were slow to trudge through and there was perhaps more dialogue than absolutely necessary, but nonetheless, it was a worthwhile read. I think I maybe would have liked a...more
(My amazing friend Amy, at A Court of Crowns and Quills, gave this to me as a birthday gift!) 💕
“Nothing ever truly faded. Time only dulled the edges.”
Friends, I’m going to be real with you all upfront; this is a really fucked up book. Before I even start my review, I’m going to list all the content and trigger warnings: graphic rape, pedophilia, penetration using an object, graphic deaths, mention of suicide, loss of a loved one, police brutality, racist comments, hurtful ableist comments, m...more
I finished this book ages ago but never really managed to write a review about it. *sighs* I guess sometimes life just happens and you have your hands full! *lol* Well anyway, I still decided to write a short review because even though I finished this book a while ago, I’m still thinking about it and I don’t know about you, but...more
You said it, George Takei! I seriously cannot get over this book.
Over the last few months I've seen a number of friends on Goodreads waxing poetic about Karin Slaughter. I like a good crime novel/thriller, so I figured I'd need to check her out at some point. Then I heard about her newest book, The Good Daughter, so I thought, 'Let's give this the old look-see, shall we?'
DAMN, Karin Slaughter. You knocked my freaking head off with this one.
It was a fairly typical night for teenage sisters Charl
Explicit sexual violence which was a bit too much for me but still an interesting character-driven mystery.
Not my fav. Not sure if I should read more from this author.
P.S. DO NOT GET THE AUDIOBOOK. The whispering then screaming was so annoying especially since I often listen to audiobooks in the shower... it was not fun.
I was enthralled by the story and the characters. There was a whole lot of 'you think you know a person', but you realize every so often there is a lot that is not what it seems. Frequent flashbacks help to reveal new clues that bring two seemingly straig...more
The Good Daughter is my second novel that I have read by Karin Slaughter and hands down... ladies and gentleman I think I must admit that I have a problem and am an official Slaughter addict.
Honestly, I can't give this novel enough praise that it truly deserves. THIS is how you truly write crime fiction. Karin Slaughter is extremely talented and holy cow does she have a dark imagination. But, I LOVE IT!! Karin has clim...more
When discussing Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn is quoted as saying 'I'll follow her anywhere.' What Gillian doesn't know is that she will have to step in line behind ME!!!
Cop Town was my first Karin Slaughter book and it started my love affair with her books. I binge read her Grant County and Will Trent Series. She had me twisted up and crying in parts especially at the end of her Grant County series. I couldn't read Pretty Girls fast enough. If she decided to re-write a phone boo...more
Abso-fraking-Awesome! This was one heck of a read.
The Good Daughter was my first introduction to Karin Slaughter and I can say without hesitation, it won’t be my last.

As an adult, Charlie once again finds herself in the wrong place at the absolute worst time. Th...more
True to Karin Slaughter - A disturbing, chillingly and violent book. Two teenage sisters, Samantha and Charlie experience a violent event that will change the course of their lives. Years later as adults they are completely estranged from each other.
Wrong place at the wrong time places Charlie in the line of fire...literally!

I sucked it up after my husband told me to shut the hell up and requested it from my lovely library. Then proceeded to be almost late for work because I couldn't stop reading it.
Two sisters had their entire life changed twenty eight years ago. They and their mot...more
Read what I had to say about “Pretty Girls”..... the only other book I’ve read by Slaughter.... ( I think...lol.... which was a few years back I believe).... but I remember that book from beginning to end and how I felt - changes I went through as I lost an entire night’s sleep like it was y...more
Charlotte and Samantha Quinn are mere kids when they encounter a violent encounter. But now Charlotte herself is faced with going back in time to guess what happened actually.
This book has unambitious goals. To shock and excite maybe. But it is also a testament to the talent of the author, to keep her demanding readers g...more
Twenty-eight years later a violent event has shaken the small town of Pikesville and past secrets that seemed to be buried are resurfacing. I do not want to give any more details, just know that this is a great thriller.
The book is narrated from different points of view and alternates between the present and the past. The story is gripping and kept me captivate...more

It left their father – Pikeville's notorious defence attorney – devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night.
Twenty-eight years later, and Charlie has followed in...more
I didn't think that Karin Slaughter could beat Cop Town but she has. This was a book that I never wanted to end. I could have read 1000 more pages of this exceptional plot and stand-out characters. Seriously - you do not want to miss this book.
So let's get down to business. What did I love? Everything! I have not one quibble with this book. It's book perfection in my humble opinion. Karin S...more
The book opens with the story of Charlie, her sister and the original, horrific crime. It is told in very graphic, gruesome detail which Slaughter writes so very well. It brings the tale to the present day and the scenes of a sc...more
