Mia is a high-flying child psychotherapist, hoping to be made partner in the thriving practice where she works. But then she takes on a case which will change her life for ever, and bring back the past she has done her best to bury.
Thirteen year old Gemma was the last person to see her father before he went on the run, fleeing from a major criminal trial. The police are desperate to track him down, pressuring Mia to tease the information out of his angry and reluctant daughter. But what does Gemma really know and how hard can Mia push without betraying her?
Both are hiding devastating secrets. Both need the other to survive. Will they learn to trust each other before it’s too late?
Mia is a therapist, who’s client/patient Gemma, was the last person to see her missing father. The police are investigating him for criminal activity.
Flashbacks to Mia’s childhood, which was poor but loving, A Daughters Secret is a slow burning tale.
Gemma adores her dad, and her therapy sessions with Mia reveal that Mia has past issues of her own to confront.
This is a story about relationships and control, which I found very intriquing. Although a professional, Mia’s private life, I felt, is very much about making other people happy. Her boyfriend Marcus his daughter, her own mother, she seems to have trouble making a decision.
Although this isn’t a favorite read for me, I enjoyed reading about Mia’s friend Lystette, and loved how this developed in the story.
