REVIEW of Somebody's Daughter by David Bell

Hardcover, 432 pages
Expected publication: July 10th 2018 by Berkley Books

In the pulse-racing new suspense novel from the bestselling and acclaimed author of Bring Her Home and Since She Went Away, the life of a little girl rests in the hands of the father who never even knew she existed...

When Michael Frazier's ex-wife, Erica, shows up on his doorstep pleading for help, she drops a bombshell that threatens to rip his family apart: Erica's nine-year-old daughter is missing--and Michael is the father. Unable to quickly determine if Erica is telling the truth, and unwilling to leave the little girl's fate to chance, Michael has no choice but to follow the elusive trail of the child he has always wanted and never knew he had.

But finding Felicity comes at a price--the closer Michael gets to the truth, the further into jeopardy his marriage falls and the faster his family begins to unravel. As lies that span a decade bubble to the surface and the window for Felicity's safe return closes, Michael will have just a few short days to decide who can be trusted and who is hiding the truth.

My Thoughts…

Goodbye reading funk.      I was so deep in a funk, nothing was good, nothing kept my attention and then I picked up Somebody’s Daughter by David Bell and I devoured it.    Every word, every paragraph, every page just flew out of the book and I couldn’t stop.  I was invested in the twists and turns of the storyline, invested in the amazing realistic caring characters, and invested in the safety of a young girl who hadn’t been seen for hours.   

The suspense in Somebody’s Daughter never lets up.    There are so many twists, turns, and ups and downs.   With each twist in the book, I wanted to find the missing girl.   I wanted to know what had happened to her yet I was thrilled that the story was continuing and that the girl hadn’t been found yet.    I was so into the story I wasn’t ready for it to end.  

David Bell takes the reader in circles, introducing characters that all have some type of tie to Erica, the missing girl’s mother, or Felicity, the missing girl.   There are times you are sure that you just met the kidnapper and then something else happens and you know that it isn’t quite right.   I found it very easy to keep track of who the characters were, how they were connected to the main characters, and what they were doing to “help” find Felicity.   I liked how he intertwined the characters that would never have met each other putting them in different situations where they were together and making them interact all in the name of saving a missing child.   

Whether this is your first David Bell book or one of many, you will not be able to put it down.   Pick up your copy now.
