    I am always excited to read a new book by Shalini Boland. She has increasingly become a favorite for her stories, plots, writing ability and her undeniable way to spin a great story. The Other Daughter is soooo good! We are grabbed in the Prologue and the first chapter promises an excellent story. A quick read full of great writing and intrigue. Fantastic!

    Wow, wow, wow Shalini Boland does it again. I just can’t get enough of her books. I’ve read many of her books and this one tops the cake. I can’t say enough good things about it. If you haven’t read her books yet you are definitely missing out in life. This book was about a woman named Rachel trying to recover after the loss of her first daughter Holly. Holly went missing many years early but then Rachel sees a girl who looks just like her. Now the hunt is on to prove that girl she’s seen is her missing daughter. Rachel’s on a mission and no one is going to stop her until she finds out if her daughter is still alive. I can’t say enough good things about this author and her books. All of her books take you on this rollercoaster ride that you never want to get off from. This is especially true about this one. I couldn’t get enough and didn’t want to sleep or eat until I found out who was lying and who was telling the truth. As each chapter went by you finally piece together what is really going on and boy is the ending a shock of all shockers. I couldn’t believe the twist that came. I never suspected it throughout the whole book. The ending made this book. I will shout to the moon and back on how great this book was. Between the plot, characters and all the twists in this book it made it an easy and fast read. I would definitely recommend it and happily give it 5 Hearts❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    Another great book by Author Boland!

    I always look forward to reading Shalini Boland's books because I know I am in for twists, turns and a real surprise ending. This book certainly did not disappoint. Catriona abducts a little girl from the shopping mall play area. Rachel, the mother of the abducted girl Holly, never gives up hoping she finds her alive. Rachel meets a new mum at school, Kate, who has two children the same age as Rachel's children, Amy and Kieran. Kate also has an older daughter Bella. When Rachel meets Bella, she is sure it is the daughter who was abducted years ago. The story is told in a new and now format with then being narrated by Catriona and now by Rachel. Thank you NetGalley and Bookouture for the ARC of another great Shalini Boland book in exchange for an honest review.

    Truly Fantastic!

    I am still something of a Shalini Boland novice having only read one of her other books - The Marriage Betrayal. I was so impressed with this outstanding psychological thriller. The premise of the book beckoned to me and I knew that I had to read this novel! In this story, Rachel Farnborough is drinking coffee and talking to her friend when the unthinkable happens, her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter, Holly, is happily playing one minute then, in the blink of an eye she has vanished, snatched by a stranger. Nine years later, Rachel has a new family, a loving partner, is living a quiet life in Dorset and her secrets are locked away in her painful past. Then one day Rachel meets Kate Morris and her teenage daughter Bella at the school gates. Rachel’s world is instantly turned upside down again as she’s seen Bella before. It’s her missing child. The Other Daughter definitely did not disappoint. It had everything I would expect from a psychological thriller - a great plot, well-drawn characters and terrific pacing. I was completely gripped by from the outset and I loved the shock factor and twisting plots, making this extremely difficult to put down. The story is told in alternating chapters of past and present with Rachel narrating the present ones. The past chapters are narrated by Catriona Devon, the woman who abducted little Holly. Although this has a tried and tested story-line, the novel stood above many others for me as the clever narrative brought with it a unique view of each character’s frame of mind at their respective times and goes somewhere towards rationalising certain behaviour. I didn't foresee any of the plot twists and I loved Shalini Boland's smooth writing style. It was very easy to connect with the characters - to imagine them, sympathise with them, love or hate them. The great reveal was the final and fulfilling shocker of the book, The Other Daughter was everything I wanted in what was a pretty special psychological thriller. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my own request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
