    Impossible to put down.

    Covered in blood that is not hers. No memory of who she is and what happened. Yes, "Zoe" has been found and is dealing with amnesia. Is she an accident victim or is something nefarious actually the case? Discovering that she is a wife as well as a mother is very jarring to both Zoe and Detective Jo Fournier. Will Jo be able to help Zoe remember who she is, all the while discovering whatever it is that took place for Zoe to be in such a condition? Only after someone shows up to identify her causes Zoe to flee the hospital she was admitted to for observation. Will she be able to us enough of her memory to get away from the danger she knows the man is capable off? What about Jo and her team? Not only do they now have to find Zoe, but they still have a mystery to solve. Danger, fleeing and dead bodies. Jo has a lot on her plate while striving to sort things out as she seeks to locate Zoe. Nothing is as it seems. What is more is Jo is dealing with a personal problem that most certainly will affect her everyday life as well as her future. Having read the first two books in the series, The Dancing Girls and Taken to the Grave has allowed me to come to know Jo a bit, and although this book, Her Daughter's Cry, will do well as a standalone, it was nice to have gotten to know Jo and her methods, as well as her personal life and how that impacts her cases. I was captivated by this story by M.M. Chouinard. The cat-and-mouse way this book was written made it impossible to put down. This book gives credence to the talented style she uses to compose her books. I look forward to continuing to read this series. So, for lovers of police and detective novels, this is a hit. For lovers who enjoy a touch of family drama woven within the threads of an already good book, this is especially a hit. Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.

    Another brilliant read

    Michelle you have done it again!! Even though there are only three books to date, I could read this series forever. For Her Daughter’s Cry, I am going to use my “less is more” motto when talking about the plot, as I think the blurb gives more than enough of a tease and this is one where it is best letting Michelle guide you along, without any more than what has already been given. As I said in my review for book two Taken to the Grave, which was “This series is just going to keep going from strength to strength”, after reading Her Daughter’s Cry, there are no words more truthful than these! It is one hell of a read from one hell of an author and I can’t wait for the next instalment, with I hope many more to come! I was so intrigued with the plot for Her Daughter’s Cry and was hooked straight away. Michelle has definitely upped the ante this time around and what I love most about this book is she does not waste any time in getting things going. With a tagline like “Someone wants her dead, and she can’t remember why” you just know that you are going to be taken on a wild ride and what a ride it is! Just when I thought that she couldn’t build up the tension and suspense anymore in this series, she dials it up another notch with this one and it is fantastic! I was on the edge of my seat throughout this book and biting my nails, much to my nail technicians disgust! Luckily she is my sister and even though it was a bit touch and go there for awhile, she has now forgiven me and all is well. Phew! I really love Jo’s character and she just gets better and better with each book. In Taken to the Grave, Michelle gave the reader a little glimpse into her vulnerable side when she was confronted with her father’s health issues, but what I loved in this book, is how we are given so much more this time around and it is now Jo who is faced with something that she never thought she would ever have to deal with, while still trying to solve the case. Showing this side of her just adds to her appeal for me as well as her strength. I look forward to seeing how this changes her in future books. Bill Arnett played a big part for me this time and I now adore him even more. As Jo’s work partner, they really are a match made in heaven and I love their relationship. In addition to Jo and Bill, the characterisation of Zoe was spot on. She played a big part in the story and she carried it on her shoulders well. It is no secret that I love Michelle’s work and that I am one her biggest fans. I was only introduced to her work last year, but I instantly connected to her writing and stories. Each book is like a movie that I play out in my head with me on the sidelines watching it all unfold, as I am caught up in the drama of it all. I am able to do this is due to Michelle’s brilliant writing that is very engaging, emotive, descriptive and visual. For Her Daughter’s Cry, Michelle’s writing is really on point and everything just comes together so seamlessly. It is fast paced and the story is well researched and not just in the police procedural side of it but also with Zoe’s memory loss and what that entails, which made it very realistic and believable. Her Daughter’s Cry is such a great addition to this series. Full of action and suspense, this one will get ahold of you and will keep you in it’s clutches until the final thrilling act. Although it can be read as a stand-alone, I actually don’t recommend the reader starting with this one, as by not reading The Dancing Girls (which is one that I will forever keep shouting about due to the best ending with a twist to end all twists that I have ever read!) and Taken to the Grave first, you will be missing out on two fantastic books. It was an absolute pleasure to be able to read and review Her Daughter’s Cry which I can not recommend highly enough and is definitely a contender to be part of my best books for 2020. Thank-you to NetGalley, Bookouture and Michelle Chouinard for allowing me to read an advanced copy of Her Daughter’s Cry which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

    Another Superb Instalment!

    An impressive read following the first two books in M.M. Chouinard's Detective Jo Fournier series - The Dancing Girls and Taken to the Grave. In this one, Her Daughter's Cry, Zoe, a wife and a mother is found stumbling out of the woods covered in blood. The police say it belongs to her missing daughter, but having sustained a severe blow to the head, Zoe can't remember anything. As she tries to visualise her daughter’s face, all that materialises is all-consuming panic and terror that her child is in desperate need of her help. When a man claiming to be her husband turns up looking for her, she knows she can’t trust him. Until she gets her memory back, she can’t trust anyone. Not the stranger, not the police investigating, not even herself… Detective Jo Fournier and her fellow worker, Detective Bob Arnett are assigned to the case and they try to piece together information about Zoe's life, unaware if Zoe herself is in danger or is actually the killer. In this third book of the series which I believe would also work as a self-contained read, I loved learning more about Jo. For me, she makes for a near-perfect main character with her inner strengths and vulnerability. Although not without flaws, she showed empathy, despite having personal difficulties of her own, and the camaraderie and bond she shared with her partner-in-crime was entertaining and delightfully pleasing. They made the perfect team and Jo's relentlessness and hard working ethos was admirable. I adored Michelle M. Chouinard’s overall style and the wonderfully thrilling plot in this tale of memory loss, criminality, and family drama. Told from both Jo’s and the killer’s perspectives, the chapters from the killer were unsettling. I really appreciated Chouinard's ability to not only draw me into the story immediately, but also keep me enthralled until the very last page. The level of tension that built throughout the story was noteworthy. For me, Her Daughter's Cry has is all - a plot brimming with mystery, suspense with many twists, as well as family melodrama, characters that are real and believable and an ending that blew me away. Michelle M. Chouinard has become one of my favourite authors and I can’t wait to see what's next in this magnificent series. I received a complimentary copy of this novel, at my request, from Bookouture via NetGalley. This review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Great!

    We are again with Det. Josette Fournier and Det. Bob Arnett. And another GREAT story that is a must read. A woman emerges from the forest: bloody, dirty and sunburned. She is taken to the hospital and it is determined that she has amnesia. Jo and Bob question her and feel as if she is telling the truth. The DNA testing does nothing to prove (or find) her identity. Yet, the blood on her shirt is her daughter's of whom "Zoe" (the amnesia patient) cannot remember. Later, "Zoe" is transferred to a nursing home and is visited by a man whom the reader thinks is someone she knows. Although "Zoe" doesn't see the man, she is spooked enough to flee the nursing home in a stolen car and with 2 stolen purses. "Zoe" is really placing herself in danger. Jo is doing all she can to find "Zoe" before perhaps the wrong person does first. A "stay up and finish book". MM Chouinard has created another fantastic thriller! Many Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for a fabulous read! Looking forward to the next in this series.
