Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney ~ My Thoughts #DaisyDarker #NetGalley @alicewriterland

Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney
Psychological Thriller, 352 pages
Published August 30, 2022 by Flatiron Books

After years of avoiding each other, Daisy Darker’s entire family is assembling for Nana’s 80th birthday party in Nana’s crumbling gothic house on a tiny tidal island. Finally back together one last time, when the tide comes in, they will be cut off from the rest of the world for eight hours.

The family arrives, each of them harboring secrets. Then at the stroke of midnight, as a storm rages, Nana is found dead. And an hour later, the next family member follows…

Trapped on an island where someone is killing them one by one, the Darkers must reckon with their present mystery as well as their past secrets, before the tide comes in and all is revealed.

With a wicked wink to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, Daisy Darker’s unforgettable twists will leave readers reeling.

My thoughts about Daisy Darker ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"I was born with a broken heart."

I have read and loved other books by Alice Feeney. They were all 5 star reads for me, keeping me on my seat the whole time. I should have reserved some of those stars (not really) because this one deserves so many more! If her other books were 5 stars, this one should be 6+. This one blew my mind and blew me out of the water! OMG!

I can't believe how twisted the plot became and I was stumped as to how all of this could be happening. And then.... then.... when it becomes clear, or rather, sort of explained—mind blown! I felt like I needed to read the book again, just to make sure of what I just read and to see if it made more sense the second time around. 

I highly recommend Daisy Darker for all of you psychological thriller readers out there! Be prepared to be blown away and make sure you have plenty of time to read when you open the first page. You will not be able to stop!

I received a copy of Daisy Darker from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion of the book.
