Thursday Thoughts: Paula Daly's Latest Domestic Thriller

The Trophy ChildThe Trophy Child by Paula Daly
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Paula Daly is a keen observer of contemporary marriage and family life. As with two of her previous novels that I read—Just What Kind of Mother are You? and Keep Your Friends Close—readers are drawn into mysterious circumstances, murders, and unexpected twists while uncovering the troubled relationships between neighbors, spouses, parents, and children. Daly's characters are complex and relatable, and her strong plots move the stories along at a good pace.

The Trophy Child follows this same winning formula. I savored the story and hope the author will be treating readers to another novel—and the recurring characters DS Joanne Aspinall and her Aunt Jackie—very soon.
