Erica‘s daughter Feli...

    I don't tend to read many thrillers as so many these days seem to have a lot of graphic violence and I have a very weak stomach when it comes to such things but I do enjoy a fast paced, somewhat trashtastic thriller that doesn't contain gory detail. And I mean trashtastic in a very affectionate way. The kind of book that you can get lost in over the course of a day lounging on a beach somewhere during your summer holidays or indulge in a quiet af...

    2 stars. This storyline didn’t work for me.I had a fantastic experience with this author’s previous novel “Bring Her Home”. Having loved that one (I gave it 5 stars!), I was excited to start this one. Unfortunately for me, this seemed like it was written by a completely different author.Starting with the positives, I really enjoyed the short chapters. Most of them ended with somewhat of a cliffhanger, making it easy to fly through this bo...

    Somebody's Daughter is my 1st novel by David Bell.Told with multiple points of view his writing kept my interest, especially his ability to leave you hanging at the end of each chapter. This made it very difficult to stop at any given point.A missing child and a frantic search, made this novel a page-turner.Late one night Michael opens the front door to find his ex-wife in a panic, telling him that he has a daughter and she is missing. Unwilling ...

    *3.75Having trouble rating this one. I’m a huge fan of David Bell’s. His books keep you riveted till the end. This one is no exception. Hooked me right from the start. The books begins with a knock at the door of Michael ‘s Home. When he opens the door he’s surprised to see his ex-wife standing there. They haven’t seen or spoken in ten years but that’s not the biggest surprise. Erica’s daughter, and supposedly Michael’s, is missin...
  • Chandra Claypool (wherethereadergrows)
    It's no secret that I'm a fan of Bell. His writing is addictive as he writes short hanging chapters that keep you turning page after page. All three I've read from him have something to do with a daughter being gone. What else can he do with these poor girls!! I'll always want to know!I couldn't imagine having my husband's ex-wife show up on my front porch saying their child that he had no idea he had, is missing. I mean, BOOM - what a way to sta...
  • Amy
    Wow. To say I was blown away, satisfied and completely engrossed in this one would be a huge understatement, this book totally consumed me. The blurb is enticing enough but trust me my friends, it does not even come close to conveying just what a twisty, wild ride Somebody’s Daughter is. I know I say this every summer when Mr. Bell releases a new novel, but I’m saying it again anyway, this is my favorite of his books to date and his best yet....

  • Sherri Thacker
    This is my 3rd book I’ve read by David Bell. I loved his other 2 I read and was excited to see he had a brand new book out. I felt that this book dragged around the middle in spots. I just felt like it took forever to get to the end, maybe because it was all told over a 24 hr time period? It kept me interested but I THOUGHT I had guessed the ending at about 35% - but nope, a big twist at the end!! The ending shocked me! Thank you to the publish...

    2018-03-08 you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing a free ebook copy of Somebody's Daughter By: David Bell in exchange for an honest review. It's thrillers like Somebody's Daughter that are the reason I have so many trust issues. Whew, so many of the characters in this book are hiding secrets! I really didn't like any of the characters (in a good way), except Michael's wife, Angela. I loved her characte...
  • ♡ Kim ♡
    I am a huge David Bell fan! I recommend his books to anyone and everyone I can. I am not sure if I set myself up with too high of expectations for this one. I was so excited to get my hands on a copy that I could not resist to just dive right in! As typical Bell fashion, it did keep my interest - that is one thing I love about his writing - his ability to leave you hanging at the end of each chapter, so there is never a good stopping point. You m...

  • Chris Carroll
    Pretty good twists. 3.5 stars ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I have read several of David Bell’s books now and they have all been great with the edge of your seat, biting your nails, suspense and thrills. This new book, Somebody’s Daughter, has a great premise and plot. After all, we are talking about a missing child so there is suspense built in just within that aspect.But something was missing in this book. When the doorbell rang and he found out who...
  • Bandit
    David Bell is usually a pretty reliable choice when it comes to suspense thrillers. This one, though, reads like it’s been phoned in or whatever the literary equivalent of that would be. Actually, it reads like it was written purely for the paycheck and was paid for by the page. That’s seems like a pretty severe estimation, but I’ve read every book Bell’s written so far, I know how well he can write and have a wide pool for comparison, so...
  • Jessica Strawser
    Sweeping readers into the chaos of one breathless night, SOMEBODY'S DAUGHTER calls uncomfortable attention to the fact that water under the bridge can rise without warning. By daybreak, Bell will have you questioning everything, from how much the truth matters, to whether there are wrong ways of doing the right thing. A well-paced race against time that will grip you from the first chapter all the way to its satisfying conclusion. (With gratitude...

    "You put me way out on the ledge dragged me into something I don't fully understand because I don't have all the facts." Somebody's Daughter is such an enjoyable read!It's a fast-paced and intriguing story that almost entirely takes place in one night. I was immediately hooked from the beginning, and I tore through Somebody's Daughter because I wanted to find out what was going on. Nobody in this book can be trusted, and I loved figur...

    I can't remember the last time I read a book in one evening, but "Somebody's Daughter" was too good to put down! This book grabbed me from the first sentences and there was never a moment that I didn't totally enjoy it. At first it seemed like a wonderfully breezy domestic tale rather than the tense suspense thriller it would soon become. Such a multi-layered plot with so many compelling, complex characters-- yet each so well drawn that it was ne...

    4.5! Here I am totally hanging my head in shame as I admit this is my FIRST EVER David Bell book! The good news is, there are plenty for me to now go back and devour after loving this one! This was a buddy read with Amy (novelgossip) and I loved theorizing with her as we went. A bit of domestic suspense mixed with thriller makes for the perfect combination. When Michael and Angela's happy life is uprooted with the arrival of his ex wife, Erica, w...
