Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“But then, I have always found fiction more attractive than real life” – Alice Feeney
I’m always a sucker for a book that tricks me. And this was that. Hauntingly atmospheric and with beautiful writing, I was immediately immersed in Daisy Darker’s world as her family members are murdered one by one. Tragically, they are trapped by the tide and cannot connect to the outside world (dreadful for them, but fun for the reader). The exceptional plotting throws you back in time via the world of VHS tapes from the 80s as remaining family watch old tapes and try to figure out who the killer is.
I loved the audiobook. It’s extremely well done with creepy and suspenseful storytelling that leaves you feeling a bit sad and unhinged at the same time. I can’t wait for my book group to talk about this one!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
