Secrets can kill and Danni Brooks knows that better than anyone.

When her husband and two of her three children perish in a devastating house fire, Danni is sure it is arson. She’s even more sure that her and her eldest daughter Mia were meant to die in the fire too. But they are just a normal family. Who would want them dead? 

Mia doesn’t talk. She can’t. She is locked in her own world where no one, not even her mother can reach her. 

Desperate for answers, and convinced the truth might help her to reach her daughter, Danni tries to piece together the events leading up to that murderous night and uncover the arsonist. But with so many lies to untangle, what is the truth?

Prepare to have your breath taken away by an unforgettable twist that will leave you reeling…

If you’ve been reading my blog posts or watching my Booktube videos, you might have noticed that I’ve been addicted to reading thrillers in the past few months. So, when I was given the chance to jump on to this tour, I felt so excited.

I was so happy that I made the decision, because, boy, did I enjoy this book!

The Silent Daughter is a story revolving around Danni, who lost her house, her husband, and her two kids in a fire. She is left with her daughter, Mia, who has been pretty silent since the incident. However, Danni strictly believes that somebody deliberately planned on burning the house. The thing is, who is it?

As we try to unravel the culprit for Danni losing most of her family, the book brings up to different timelines. There was alternating present and past narratives, but the stories were mixed up in terms of a linear form. At first, it can be a little confusing because there is also an unnamed character telling her story between every few chapters. But this pacing made the book much more interesting. Watching the story unfold is so nerve wracking – you don’t have to worry about dull moments!

If you’re not into dark themes, this book might not be for you. It has graphic sexual content, vulgar words, and check on the content warnings mentioned above.

Overall, I had a great time with my first Kirsty Ferguson book. Her writing style fits my taste and I hope to read her future works.
