  • Coincidence, Copycat, or Something Worse?!

    Dr. Nadine Finch is a forensic psychologist in Sarasota, Florida, when two bodies are found in the water. When she is called in to consult, she finds that the victims of this violent murder bear a shocking similarity to crimes that Nadine is all too familiar with. Nadine knows these crimes so well because her mother is a notorious serial killer of adulterous couples. Are the new murders a coincidence, a copycat killer, or something worse? The premise behind this story is an interesting one and overall, I found the storyline to be engaging and original. However, this is Jenna Kernan’s first foray into this genre and it shows. There’s a lot of telling instead of showing, and I sometimes felt I was being smacked in the face with thoughts I could deduce on my own. I also felt some things were implausible. The reader is expected to believe Nadine is learning the fine details of her mother’s crimes at the same time the reader is, even though her mother has been in prison for more than a decade. But all in all, a decent thriller and enjoyable read. There will be a future novel continuing Nadine’s story and I will likely seek it out. I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley and the publisher.

  • 4.25⭐ A thrilling and captivating story.

    A Killers Daughter was a thrilling and captivating mystery. That kept me reading all day, as it was brilliantly plotted and full of intriguing characters. Not to mention, I genuinely had no idea who the killer was. And with plenty of twists I thought this was a great introduction to Dr Nadine Finch and Detective Clint Demko and I'm really excited to read more from these two in the future. Would happily recommend. **I was kindly provided with an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

  • Twists and turns keeps the pages turning

    A Killer's Daughter will pull you in slowly as the author sets up the characters , it is Book One after all. Once you get to know that Nadine Finch was once Nadine Howler and her mother is sitting on death row, the story grabs you and never lets you go. Someone is copying her mother's crimes/murders and Nadine along with Detective Demko are desperately trying to figure out who. The pages fly by, twists and turns, secrets and most of all I did not figure out who the murderer was. Can't wait for Book 2 in the series and see what path Nadine chooses . Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for the privilege of reading and reviewing A Killer's Daughter, I will be one of the first in line for the next book.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Dark & twisty thriller

    Nadine Finch has spent most of her life trying to run from her family’s legacy: murder. Now a criminal psychologist for the Sarasota police department, Nadine works closely with all types of criminals everyday. So when two bodies are found floating off Sarasota’s coast, Nadine is asked to help profile the murderer. The only problem is that the killer’s MO is almost identical to a murderer that she knows all too well... her mother. At the age of fourteen, Nadine was the star witness in the case that put her mother behind bars for murder. Not only did she testify against her mother, essentially sealing her fate on death row, but she was also the person who turned her mother over to authorizes in the first place. Now, nearly 15 years later, Nadine must visit her mother in prison to revisit her mother’s murderous past and get the missing details she needs to help her catch the new copycat killer. The twists and turns in this book are wild! Just when you think you have it all figured out, boom, the rug gets pulled out from under you. As a thriller/crime fiction junkie, the title of this book alone was enough to catch my eye. But once I got into the heart of this book, I couldn’t put it down. I mean, a chance to read about the child of a serial killer and how she tries to move on from and hide her past? Sign me up! The prologue gripped me instantly. I loved how the author inserted small snippets from the murderer’s viewpoint. At times I did feel that the writing was a bit choppy, but as the book goes on I could tell the author found her groove. As you read, you are able to get glimpses into Nadine’s childhood and events leading up to her mother’s trial. Nadine clearly has emotional scarring from her childhood, and I enjoyed being able to watch (read about?) her growth as she learns to allow people into her life. I’m glad this is the first in a series, and I’m looking forward to Nadine’s next adventure! Thank you to NetGalley, Bookouture, and Jenna Kernan for the free digital ARC in exchange for my honest review.

  • Exciting New Series Start!

    This is the first book in the new Nadine Finch series. I found this to be a solid beginning. Dr Nadine Finch is a FBI forensic psychologist based in Sarasota, Florida. Nadine is called to the scene of the murder of a young couple. The circle carved around the female victim’s wedding ring finger is identical to the wounds Nadine’s own mother inflicted on her victims. But her mother is on death row where she can’t hurt anyone. Is this a disturbing coincidence, or a copycat? Nadine was 14 years old when she was the star witness at the trial that put her serial killer mother in prison. Nadine has since changed her name and relocated. Her coworkers do not know about her past, or so she believes. She finds bloodied clothes in a bag on her bed when she returns home one evening. Is she being threatened? Who can she trust? There is some romance in the book. Nadine works the case with a Detective Demko and there is an instant attraction. I found the romance to be rushed, I would have liked a little more build up, perhaps over a couple of books. Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC of this book in exchange for a honest review.
