Publisher's Summary

What first appears to be a random home invasion reveals a family's dark secrets in this domestic ticking-clock suspense from the New York Times best-selling author of See Jane Run.

A hostile relationship with her sister and a complicated past with her father's second wife have kept Robin estranged from her family for many years. But when her father's new family is attacked in their house, with her father and his wife in critical condition in the hospital, she returns home determined to put her experience as a therapist to use to help mend fences and care for her young stepsister, who survived the attack relatively unscathed. It looks like a random robbery gone awry, but as Robin spends more time with her family members, she learns they all had their secrets - and one of those secrets may have put them all in horrible danger.

Wonderful Narration

The story was interesting, however the narration was excellent. I listen to many audio books but few have excellent narritors. If you're like me and it means a lot to you, you will enjoy this one.

The story line is okay; irritating characters

It's been a while since I picked up a Joy Fielding book. So, when I saw "The Bad Daughter" I downloaded the offering. The narrator does an excellent job however parts of the story are just irritating. Robin, the therapist, takes constant guff from her sister. Melanie, the sarcastic, smart-mouthed sibling cannot have a conversation unless peppered with put-downs and insults. The 12 yr. old girl, Cassidy, is equally disturbing. The dialogue doesn't fit for a kid that age. Then Ms. Fielding feels the need to interject within the storyline, a cult-oriented religious group. No specifics about this sect other than plain clothes and Christian faith which is eloquently admonished by the 12 yr. old granddaughter, receiving an Amen or two from the aunts. I finished the book, had a ridiculous ending and probably won't be seeking out any more Fielding books for a some time.

Keeps You Wondering

In the beginning I was kept guessing on just "who" the Bad Daughter is ... Family dynamics and general warfare among family members kept me wondering just what that hell is going on. Soon the sweetest of them all begins to rot & All ends with a twist you don't see coming....

Absolutely terrible

*Spoilers*
DO NOT assume by the reviews that this is a good book like i did.
This book was terrible, the narration was wonderful but that was the only positive I comment i have.
First, the main character robin is a neurotic mess and no one knows why she's literally just fucked up. She has serious daddy issues and she is incredibly gullible, she isnt relatable whatsoever.
Then there is her sister Melanie who is a straight up bitch simply because their mom favored Robin. She treats everyone poorly, and she lets her some what high functuoning autistic son do whatever the hell he wants then gets pissed when people question her motives.
Second this book was a bad twist on Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn. listen to sharp objects, you won't regret it its so much better.
immediately after Cassidy woke up and started talking i knew what happened. it was so predictable and sickingly childish. The way cassidy was written made me want to give up the book, it was terrible. Not to mention she's freaking 12! Her character is written as if she's 16, it's so annoying.
i could go on but those are the key points that i had to list. Overall i DO NOT recommend this book.

Enjoyable Beach Read

It's not hard to figure out the culprit. But it was a fun listen. It would have been nice to have both a male and female narrator.

Soap Opera Mystery

Definitely not a classic. If you appreciate a well written book this is likely not for you.

Who IS The Bad Daughter?

This book had twists and turns throughout , so the reader never knows what might come next.
There are actually three daughters in the story, all clearly a little bit bad but the real thing that keeps you from wanting to listen past bedtime and in the bathroom is which one turns out to be truly bad.
Well written and equally well narrated, The Bad Daughter is one of the best audio books I’ve heard in a long time!

boring and one dimensional characters.

this boring book and poor narrator doesn't live up to Joy Fielding's reputation. I returned the book

Not my favourite

The story was very long with not a ton of action. Main characters were oblivious. Twist was obvious. Narrator’s voice for Cassidy was extremely grating
