Review: Dear Daughter By: Elizabeth Little

Dear DaughterDear Daughter by Elizabeth Little
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Janie Jenkins has just been released from prison on a technicality. After doing ten years being convicted for killing her mother, I guess it is a good thing that someone in the crime lab was guilty of manipulation of evidence. One problem in all of this, not only was Janie there when her mother died, not only did her mother writer her name in blood as she was dying, but Janie can barely piece that evening together. Janie knows there was someone at the party, someone that threatened her mother, someone that brought up a name of Adeline.
Janie has people hunting her down, with help from her attorney she begins her get away and starts to go underground, but even starts to go into hiding from him - to a place - Adeline. It's a long shot, she knows, but it is all she has to grasp at, especially after ten years.
It is here in a small town that she uncovers secrets that have been long buried and people that would go to every length to keep them that way. She starts to unravel a past that leads her to what once was the mother that she never knew, that no one knew, and the danger is sealed within her.

I didn't put this thriller down. Picked it up and got swept into it and that was it - the ending though, oh, that last little bit on the page -- how could the author do this to me. But I guess that shows how invested I got into the story. A great book to lose yourself in.
