My daughter is getting married to the man of her dreams. But will she pay for it with her life?
My beautiful daughter Ellie walks down the aisle in her full-length lace dress, beaming with happiness. As she exchanges her vows with Kyle, who looks devastatingly handsome in his smart black suit, I hope this time will be different…
As confetti settles on the shoulders of the happy couple, I reassure myself that Kyle Beaumont is a charming, successful businessman. He’s so different to her ex-boyfriend – the man who tried to hurt my Ellie.
Except, only days after the ceremony, I discover a letter that makes my heart flip when I realise what my son-in-law is hiding. Ellie’s past is about to catch up with her, and I am certain my daughter is in danger.
But I’m her mother, and I’ll stop at nothing to protect her…
An utterly gripping psychological thriller with jaw-dropping twists from the number one bestselling author of The Doctor’s Wife. If you loved Behind Closed Doors and The Night She Disappeared, you’ll be hooked by My Daughter’s Husband.
The king of domestic suspense, Daniel Hurst, returns following My Daughter's Boyfriend with the second in the series (sequel), MY DAUGHTER'S HUSBAND. Life continues for a mother-daughter duo caught up in another dangerous web of deceit con game. A killer on the loose set out for revenge in this entertaining, suspenseful popcorn psychological thriller!
Elle sure knows how to pick them! From a murderer to a con man! I think she should stay single—TOXIC relationships.
Five years after the nightmare terror of Elle's boyfriend, Daryl, and father, Harvey, from the States—Elle has moved on and is marrying Kyle. Everyone is traveling from the UK to Turkey for the wedding.
Dawn, Ellie's mother, is delighted her daughter is getting a happy ending after the nightmare of her last boyfriend, Daryl, which ended in Dawn killing him to protect her daughter from a murderer.
However, Daryl's dad, Harvey, whom we met in the first book, has been serving time in prison, confessing— and is about to be released. Harvey is obsessed with making this mother-daughter pay for his son's death. Of course, Harvey is a killer, and his son inherited those murderous tendencies.
Havey has to find a way to get into the country, and may these two pay, no matter the cost. REVENGE.
Dawn has tried to get back into the dating circle, but each time the guy finds out about the past drama and she is the killer, she can't get past Go. Her friend has someone in mind who knows the background, so it is a possibility.
In the meantime, the wedding is beautiful, and when Dawn returns, she finds a letter that makes her suspicious of Kyle. She follows him and learns there is another woman. Who is this man and what is his plan?
But little does Dawn know how dangerous and evil Kyle can be. She must get her daughter away from this man and this scheme.
However, Elle is naïve and believes his tales. She takes out a bank loan for $100K and will give him her savings to help with his business.
Will Dawn make it out (she is captured) before it is too late to save her daughter? In the meantime, Harvey is closing in. The novel follows Dawn, Elle, and Harvey as the suspense builds into an explosive ending.
Hurst always delivers a clever, twisty, highly entertaining read, engaging you with drama and suspense. I listened to the audiobook narrated by Harrie Dobby, Adam Sims, and Tamsin Kennard for an entertaining, fun performance. I listened in one sitting to see how it would turn out! I highly recommend the audio.
My Daughter's Husband can be read/listened to as a standalone; however, I recommend reading My Daughter's Boyfriend first to get the characters' backstory.
Thanks to Bookouture Audio and NetGalley for a gifted ALC in exchange for an honest review.
