A Killer's Daughter by Jenna Kernan | Blog Tour


When I saw the cover of this book, I just HAD to read it. A book revolving around a serial killer’s daughter. I’m in. I’ve never read a book that revolves around that topic so that was a nice variation of the thrillers I’m used to reading.

First off, I initially thought the book was slow, there wasn’t much action, there was lots of repeating, and I was getting a bit bored. However, as the book kept progressing it got better and better and overall ended up absolutely loving it!

For me, this novel was totally unpredictable, which is a big bonus for me since I read mostly Thrillers and have seen so many of the same twists. Also, this book includes many creepy and vivid details of the murders and I was there for it! If you don’t enjoy that type of writing, you might not like this book.

However, my favorite part of the book was the main characters. I love romance in Thrillers, so I absolutely loved the dynamic between Nadine and the Detective! They were such lovable characters it just made me want to keep reading their story. This is apparently Book 1 of the Nadine Finch series, so you better bet I’m going to keep reading this series! Highly recommend.

Thank you to Bookouture for providing me with an electronic ARC of this book via NetGalley. As usual, my reviews are my honest and unbiased opinions.

Who better to catch a murderer than a woman raised by one?

The beautiful young woman’s long black hair clings to her face like seaweed. As Nadine turns the body, she prays this will be different: but seeing the wounds, her prayers go unanswered. It’s just like the others. An exact match to her mother’s victims.

Keeping her head down and refusing to let anyone get close is Agent Nadine Finch’s atonement for never realising her mother Arleen was a serial killer. But when the body of a young woman is found drifting in the warm Sarasota Bay waters, right where Nadine grew up, the past she’s worked so hard to keep hidden comes calling.

Rushing to the scene, Nadine is the first to notice the circle carved around the girl’s ring finger. It’s the exact same marking Arleen left on all her victims. Suddenly, Nadine is a teenager again, watching her mother come home to their trailer in the middle of the night, covered in blood.

With a heartbroken family reeling, and no witnesses or forensic evidence, Nadine has no choice but to face her demons and visit her mother in prison. When her mother whispers a name Nadine hasn’t heard for years, the case takes a terrifyingly personal turn, and returning home, the bag of bloodied clothes left on Nadine’s bed tells her someone is watching her every move…

With her dark family history out in the open, it’s not long before suspicion falls on Nadine herself. As her team turn against her, the closer she gets to her mother and this case, the more danger she’s in. Time is running out. Can she catch the killer—or will she be the next victim of this dark family legacy?

An unputdownable thriller that will have you racing through the pages until the final, jaw-dropping twist. Perfect for fans of Rachel Caine, Lisa Gardner and Mary Burton.
