The Trophy Child by Paula Daly
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was so reluctant to finish this as I was enjoying it too much.
Karen is the second wife of Noel.
Noel has a daughter from his first marriage, the marriage broke up. His ex has MS and in a Care home.
Their daughter visits mum often.
Karen now has a daughter by Noel.
She's very OTT and pushy where it comes to her daughter. No time for children's free time, oh no, she needs to be at one of her after school activities be it music lessons and so on. She has aspirations for HER daughter.
Noels daughter by his first wife 'had an incident' with his wife Karen which results in his daughter needing therapy.
All very interesting as Paula Daly delves more and more into this complicated family.
They're child they have together one day goes missing under the care of her step sister.
My jaw dropped when after time she just walked right into her home again.
Where had she been?
She didn't look hurt.
While a Police and family members are trying to come to terms with this, Karen vampnishes.
This is a fast paced book that will keep you spinning on your axis until you get right at the end....
Then another jaw dropping moment.
