Title: The Perfect Daughter

The Perfect Daughter is one of those thrillers that will have you interested from the very first sentence and the very first page! It begins dark and gory; with a suspect covered in blood and no memory of what happened, so you know it’s going to be good!
The Perfect Daughter is a thriller that explores the truth or lies behind a teenage girl’s multiple personality disorder; more specifically dissociative identity disorder (DID).
It’s a nightmare for mother, Grace, to have her teenaged daughter Penny locked up in a decaying psychiatric hospital, charged with murder. The only question is: Did Penny do it? Or one of her other personalites: Chloe, Ruby, Eve; or is she lying? Grace is determined to get to the bottom of things. With the help of Dr. Mitch McHugh they dig deeper and deeper until they uncover dark and shocking secrets in the past. Are they all in danger!?
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ This one wasn’t my favorite. It kind of drug in the middle and was very repetitive. I’m not a big fan of mental illness thrillers, so it’s probably more of a it’s not you it’s me situation. I also didn’t care for her brothers and their narrated chapters didn’t offer any knowledge, paranoia, or suspicion like maybe they were intended. They simply didn’t work for me.
