Former “It Girl” Janie Jenkins is sly, stunning, and fresh out of prison. Ten years ago, she was jailed for the murder of her mother, a socialite that would put the Real Housewives to shame. Now, released on a technicality, Janie is determined to chase down the one lead she has on her mother’s killer.
The only problem? Janie doesn’t know if she’s the killer she’s looking for.
Going undercover in her mother’s sleepy hometown, Janie begins to piece together the clues of a woman it turns out, she barely knew at all. As she digs deeper, Janie discovers that even the sleepiest towns hide sinister secrets—and will stop at nothing to guard them. On the run from the press, the police, and maybe even a murderer, Janie must choose between the anonymity she craves and the truth she so desperately needs.
A gripping, electrifying debut novel with an ingenious and like-it-or-not sexy protagonist, Dear Daughter follows every twist and turn as Janie unravels the mystery of what happened the night her mother died—whatever the cost.
