Suzanne grew up being raised by her mother having few memories of her father’s visits over the years after he’d left them when Suzanne was very young. Don had stopped visiting Suzanne completely when her mother had decided to remarry until a weird visits when Suzanne was in her twenties and trying to become an artist.
Now however Suzanne’s life is changed completely when she receives a visit from Rose Anderson, a woman who claims to have been her father’s girlfriends and was with him in his last days. Rose insists that Suzanne should have her father’s things which includes a multitude of handwritten notebooks detailing his life and what Suzanne finds within the pages would shock anyone.
The Serial Killer’s Daughter by Lesley Welsh was one of those reads that left me slightly disappointed when finished. The book isn’t bad but I personally felt it never really delivered on the promised twists and turns that were advertised within the pages. The story seemed to me to be a tad predictable other than a few details here and there.
On the other hand however even with the predictability there’s a certain pull to reading about a serial killer and finishing it out to find out all of what he had done and just what would happen. Suzanne seemed to be a pretty strong character with what she’s going through which had me curious was her toughness from her father? In the end this one turned out to just be an OK read for me, would have preferred a major twist or two I hadn’t seen coming but the story was interesting enough.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley.
