Dear Daughter by Elizabeth Little. Read August 2014.

An entertaining and intriguing read with a witty and refreshing take on a murder mystery.
“LA IT girl Janie Jenkins has it all. The looks, the brains, the connections. The criminal record…She knows she really didn’t like her mother. Could she have killed her?”
Dear Daughter kept me guessing throughout because, after all, if Jane wasn’t sure whether she’d killed her mother how could I know? The book is well written and cleverly put together but I felt at a bit of a disadvantage because I didn’t get most of the American celebrity culture references.
The style of writing reminded me of Sue Grafton’s Kinsey Millhone series – the wise-cracking single female, very much her against the world, but Jane Jenkins is a character I didn’t particularly like or care about.
I’d recommend Dear Daughter to crime fiction fans who enjoy a quirky read, very different from the usual thrillers on offer. Thank you to the publisher for the advance review copy of the book.
Dear Daughter will be published by Harvill Secker on 14 August 2014.
