I love the distraction of audiobooks as I drive and can make my way through almost anything - and have enjoyed other books of Lisa's very much. This book however, proved my most difficult task. For the first couple of hours, nothing seems to happen. there appears to be no point to the story, no direction.. the setup is far, far too long. The main character is really tough to like- makes ridiculous decisions and allows herself to be pushed around by everyone.
The story is resolved with what I am sure is meant to be a clever ending but felt tacked on and incomplete.
I listen to a lot of audiobooks (mostly mystery and suspence stuff - and a little romance thrown in never hurts either) and 99% of them are pretty darn predictable. This book kept me guessing all the way to the very end. I had no idea who, what, or how. It was great!!! Im hoping this author delivers as well on her other books cause so far Im a big fan!
This is a great Scottoline novel in true style. It has all the elements of suspense, drama, romance and intrigue. There are no dull moments and as always the heorine may not always make the best decisions initially but all works out well in the end. The descriptions are so real you can easily visualize the events as they unfold.
I really liked Daddy's Girl. The characters were well written and the plot was involved enough not to lag. It was easy to identify with the heroine and her family. I would recommend Daddy's Girl to anyone that likes a little romance with their mystery.
Awesome, excellent. Never ending suspense. the question of "justice versus the law" is an poignant one. Just when you think the story is over, another jolt. Scottolini outdid herself with this novel. Loved the suspense, the development of the characters. Fell in love with Angus and wish I could be more like Nat. Highly recommended by an avid reader.
I really, really enjoyed this book. The narrator was superb. The story kept me glued to my car seat - :)
I found "Daddy's Girl" to be filled with interesting twists and turns. It has a very unexpected ending. It kept me listening, even though I should have been doing other things...The main character shows a lot of inner growth throughout the story. I found her to be a very likeable character, and her brothers in the story are like brothers everywhere in some respects (loud, protective, sports fanatics, inconsiderate, yet caring). This book made me laugh, cry, cringe, and cheer in different places. I enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed Daddy's girl. It wasn't too descriptive but enough to paint a good picture of the people, place and plot. The narrator did a good job of changing voices without getting on your nerves. The pace kept you intrigued to where you didn't want to stop at any one point to get your work done. And even though the heroine was a petite law professor, you could believe that she had the ability to be the heroine and the limb she crawled out on was reasonable.
I really was suprised by the ending and that is rare.
The plot was simple, story moves at an okay pace. The narator does a great job with the voices, but the story is not engaging enough to hold your interest tightly.
