Review of The Good Daughter by Alexandra Burt

I received a copy of this title from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I did not and will not accept monetary compensation for reviews. These are my honest thoughts and opinions.

From the author of Remember Mia comes the tale of a young woman in search of her past, and the mother who will do anything to keep it hidden... 
What if you were the worst crime your mother ever committed? 
Dahlia Waller s childhood memories consist of stuffy cars, seedy motels, and a rootless existence traveling the country with her eccentric mother. Now grown, she desperately wants to distance herself from that life. Yet one thing is stopping her from moving forward: she has questions. 
In order to understand her past, Dahlia must go back. Back to her mother in the stifling town of Aurora, Texas. Back into the past of a woman on the brink of madness. But after she discovers three grave-like mounds on a neighboring farm, she ll learn that in her mother s world of secrets, not all questions are meant to be answered..."

My Review:
3.5 Stars

I had one of those "what did I just read" moments when I finished this book. The author weaves a story that is complex and hard to follow at first.

Dahlia definitely has a unique upbringing and upon learning it you can garner that for some reason her mother is on the run. Throughout the book you come closer as to why they have been hiding for years, why Dahlia's mother wasn't all that happy about her returning home and why Dahlia's mother is the eccentric way she is.

All together it was a compelling tale of deceit, longing, heartbreak and murder. Written in a way that strings you along, changes your focus and blind sides you with the truth.
