If what they said was true, then the grotesque and the monstrous ran in her blood. It was imprinted within her very core, her DNA, a part of every cell in her body.
Kat’s children are both smart and well-adjusted. On the outside.
Kat has always tried to treat Imogen and Jemima equally, but she struggles with one of her daughters more than the other.
Because Imogen’s birth mother is a serial killer. And Imogen doesn’t know.
They say you can’t choose your family, but what if your family chooses you?

Well, what a gripping page turner this turned out to be! Exactly how I like my thrillers, this one had me hooked from the very start and I read it in a couple of big chunks
Like Mother, Like Daughter tackles the age old question of nature vs nurture. Kat’s adopted daughter, Imogen, has a traumatic past – but is the evil that occupies her biological parents inherited?
In alternating chapters we hear the breakdown of the mother, daughter relationship from Kat and Imogen in short, punchy chapters
which kept me absolutely glued to the pages
And boy does this get dark! As the truth about Imogen’s biological family is revealed , a shocking story of child abuse emerges. Without going into graphic detail, the author sets the sinister tone with an eerie occasional narrative from the perpetrator themselves. It sent shivers down my spine
I raced threw this book, and a couple of little twists towards the end managed to catch me off guard. It throws up a lot of thought provoking questions as well as being compulsive reading. One I’d recommend if you fancy something quick and gritty with pages that turn themselves
Thanks to the publisher for my #gifted copy as part of the blog tour
