Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a small town isn't easy, especially when you're the daughter of a local cult leader. Ten years ago, Eden Collins left Clear Springs, Montana, and never once looked back. But when the bodies of murdered young women surface, their corpses violated and marked with tattoos worn by her mother's followers, Eden, now an FBI agent, can't turn a blind eye. To catch the killer, she's going to have to return to the fold.

Sheriff Zach Owens isn't comfortable putting Eden in danger, even if she is an elite agent. And he certainly wasn't expecting to be so attracted to her. As calm and cool as she appears, he knows this can't be a happy homecoming. Zach wants to protect her - from her mother, the cult, and the evil that lurks behind its locked gates. But Eden is his only key to the tight-lipped group, and she may just be closer to the killer than either one of them suspects...

Not for me...

The protagonist in this story, Eden Collins is an FBI agent. She takes a vacation when she hears of a young woman murdered on her home town where her mother is a cult leader. She grew up in the cult never knowing her father. The sheriff allows her to participate in the investigation in an unofficial capacity. Sounds like it could be a good book, right? For me it was all wrong.
There are two murders and a third woman taken. After that this book falls apart. There are indications of how horrible it was growing up in the cult. She say how evil her mother was. What is missing from both is details. It is never said what made it so horrible and the only thing showing her mother's brutality is her wicked smile or the look in her eyes.
Enough said. I don't recommend this book and am not sure why other people have but everyone has an opinion.
I have listened to Carley Robbins before and although not my favorite I have heard her do better then this.
This book was free on kindle unlimited for anyone interested.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Terrible Narration

This is a ridiculous book. Having nothing to do with the awful Narration it just doesn't make much sense. There is no way the leading agent is a member of the BAU as is repeatedly mentioned. But once you get past the craziness of thst you have to deal with the narrator. She is just terrible. Squeaky high pitched tries of sounding like men does her no favors. The writings not bad if you can overcome the other things. Think it'd be better to read than listen. Can't recommend due to the narrator though.

MURDER MYSTERY OR SOFT PORN?

the murder-mystery part of this story is great, but it's ruined by the constant sexual interactions between the two main characters. if you're looking for soft porn this is the book for you, but for the rest of us who enjoy thrillers and mystery choose something else. it's a waste of money. the only reason I gave this 3 stars is because the narrator did a wonderful job

Not worthwhile!!

First the narration is horrible. The narrator tries to do male voices and fails. The genre is supposedly suspense mystery. It should be classified as romantic suspense or possibly erotica.

Solid Thriller

What did you love best about The Devil's Daughter?

A really interesting premise for an FBI agent's background. The characters were believable.

Any additional comments?

One of the sex scenes was erotic, as in, Rated X. Totally unnecessary.

Not what i was expecting (in a bad way)

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really. The narrator..was bad. Specially her male voices were nasal and whinny. Also she will yelled every sentence. the characters will sound loud and exasperated all the time.
Second...The main character is the worst FBI agent I have ever read before. She is constantly making stupid mistakes, getting herself in trouble and at the same time we will be reminded that SHE IS AN FBI AGENT and one of the best.......

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have change the narrator. Also is a romantic-suspense, lacking in both. There was no connection between the protagonists. Too force. I rolled my eyes several times with the two of them. The suspense was also weak. Not much of a mystery in my opinion. figure it out too soon.

Was The Devil's Daughter worth the listening time?

ehhhhh...........

Distracting Performance

The reading of this story was not good. It was difficult to know if dialogue was being exchanged or if thoughts were what was being read. Also, the transition from dialogue to thoughts and thoughts to dialogue were, at times, difficult to determine. Next there was the constant change of inflections during thoughts and dialogue. To me, they were quite jarring and, they occur throughout the reading. The accents (accent, as it seemed the same was being used for several characters in the story) weren't great either. I kept listening because I added this book to my library too long ago to return/exchange it.

Regretable Read

First of all, the narrator for this book dtove me crazy!!!! She was awful. Add that to the main character Eden being the dumbest Fbi agent in print and I had to force myself over DAYS to finish this book. It's one of those hopeful thoughts that it had to get better....but it didn't. Don't waste your time!!!

Good story ruined by awful narration.

Interesting story with potential but ruined by a narrator more suited to the Disney channel.
