If what they said was true, then the grotesque and the monstrous ran in her blood. It was imprinted within her very core, her DNA, a part of every cell in her body.
Kat’s children are both smart and well-adjusted. On the outside.
Kat has always tried to treat Imogen and Jemima equally, but she struggles with one of her daughters more than the other.
Because Imogen’s birth mother is a serial killer. And Imogen doesn’t know.
They say you can’t choose your family, but what if your family chooses you?
Wow, what a spine tingling, thrilling read this turned out to be! My head is still spinning with this one. It is addictive, gripping and I could not get enough! If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, then you need to read this book stat! Elle has really delivered and them some with this story and you will not be disappointed.
I don’t want to rehash the plot on this one as it is best just going in with what the blurb has offered, but I will say is that you will be hooked instantly when starting this one, so make sure you have nothing else to do as it will consume you till the very last page.
This story is such an intriguing one and really delves into the human psyche and into the whole nature vs. nurture debate with how it influences human behaviour. It really is a fascinating insight and Elle has done an outstanding job in conveying it. The cast of characters have been perfectly created and play out their roles perfectly. I also really enjoyed how the book was structured with it voiced from three of the central characters point of views.
This is my first book by Elle and I was so impressed with it. So much so, I have now downloaded her whole back catalogue to sink my teeth into. She had my attention right from the get go and kept me engaged throughout, while I was furiously turning the pages to see how it was all going to unfold, which it does so in jaw dropping spectacular fashion.
Like Mother, Like Daughter is a fast paced read that is compelling, intense and one that will definitely get under your skin and have you going over and over it in your head long after you have finished reading it. I was my absolute pleasure to read and review Like Mother, Like Daughter which I highly recommend.
Thank you to NetGalley, Orion and Elle Croft for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Like Mother, Like Daughter which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
