The Perfect Daughter by D.J. Palmer is a suspenseful family drama. Grace’s family is in turmoil: Penny, the sixteen-year-old daughter, has been found at the scene of a vicious murder. She suffers from a multiple personalities disorder and has been admitted to the state psychiatric hospital until her trial. Grace must hire a lawyer and get to the bottom of how her child could possibly have found herself in such a situation. Penny’s multiple personalities complicate the case because each one is unaware of the existence of the others. The mystery is off to a good start but it begins to lag in the middle. There are sub-plots that seem unnecessary and add nothing to the story. However, there is an unpredictable and surprising ending which more than makes up for the length of The Perfect Daughter. The author’s use of multiple personalities disorder adds an original and interesting angle and gives the reader an opportunity to learn about the trauma of such a disorder. This is an intense family drama. Thank you to St. Martin’s Press, NetGalley and the author for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

I really enjoyed the narration on this audiobook as it really brought something extra to the different characters and alters.

This is my second read from DJ Palmer. I will pick up anything from him in the future, as I have really enjoyed both books so far.

This one started off very intense as you learn about a horrible crime committed. It intertwines many different topics involving adoption, abuse, and mental health. There were twists and turns along the way to keep your interest.

There was a little bit of pacing issues in the middle with repetitive information. I would have liked to see a little more in the ending as it did feel a little rushed.

Overall, I really enjoyed this one though. ( )

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

D.J. Palmer is the author of numerous critically acclaimed suspense novels, including Delirious and Desperate. After receiving his master’s degree from Boston University, he spent a decade as an e-commerce pioneer before turning his attention to writing. He lives with his wife and two children in New Hampshire

“You play stupid games; you win stupid prizes.”

Grace is a loving, passionate, intelligent, and fierce mom. She would do anything for her children. Though, Grace had no idea just how far she would have to go to keep her daughter from being sent to prison for murder.

Holy buckets. This book takes off right away. Like lazy waves lapping the salty seashore, the build-up intensified slowly until the pressure erupts and leaves you stunned.

I enjoyed the characters in this book. They are so well developed, and all have such intense mannerisms and things that make them tick. This is clearly a very profoundly researched novel, and I feel like D.J. Palmer did justice with his handling of DID.

The twist in this book is so absolutely unexpected and will take your breath away. I did not see it coming. The build-up is so well done that you find yourself looking every which way- except the right way.

With a deeply complicated scenario and a mother’s unconditional love, this legal/medical thriller is an excellent read. I could not get through it fast enough—the twists, the turns, the epic plot twists- absolutely incredible. ( )

3.5 stars rounded up to 4. I found this book on the dry side, predictable, and some parts read more like a case study than a thriller.

Grace wants to raise a daughter, after having 2 sons. She comes across an abandoned little girl in a playground and talks her husband into adopting. They name her Penny....but then there is Ruby, Chloe and hardened Eve. This book delves into Dissociative Identity Disorder, which was just in the news today with a popular actress coming out to talk about her diagnosis. After Penny’s biological mom is found brutally murdered, and Penny found covered in blood, she is sent to a local psychiatric hospital for evaluation and to await trail. I found Grace selfish to a point, willing to fight for her daughter but at what cost to the rest of the family. On a whole, the book is OK just not as much a thriller as I would have liked. But, it’s a good vacation read that others might find unputdownable!

Thanks to Mr. Palmer, St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for this ARC. Opinion is mine alone. ( )

Penny, Eve, Chloe, or Ruby....which person was she today and which personality murdered her birth mother?

Penny was abandoned by her mother when she was five, and Grace and her husband adopted her.

She was the sweetest child, but she did suffer from the trauma of her years with her birth mother. This caused mental issues called DID (dissociative identity disorder) which caused Penny to have multiple personalities.

What a devastating illness.

We follow the attorney Grace hired and the doctor from the hospital where Penny was until the trial as they try to put a case together.

While awaiting the trial, Grace tried to carry on, but things happened and the cost of the attorney was quite expensive.

As the trial approaches, everyone is doing his/her best to find anything that could help Penny.

As the trial gets even closer, dangerous men tried to keep Grace quiet.

Will these men get charged with intimidation?

What will happen next?

Will Penny be acquitted?

We find out the answer to all these questions in the surprise ending.

Mr. Palmer did extensive research on this mental health topic and will keep you on your toes.

I have to say THE PERFECT DAUGHTER could have been shorter, but it is very enlightening. 4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
