The Perfect Daughter by DJ. Palmer

Your daughter is accused of a horrific murder but you are determined she did not do it. This is what faces Grace and her daughter Penny. As with all of DJ. Palmer's books, mental health is central to the plot. Penny has multiple personalities and Eve is the most destructive. Mental health stories can be a trigger so be aware before you read Palmer's books. I have read all of his books and loved this one as much as his others. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to read this book well in advance of its publication and provide my honest feedback. Eve/Penny/others are very interesting part of the book and is essential to the story. As we learn more about Penny and her past, you understand her more. Grace has faith in her daughter and is not willing to accept her daughter committed the crime. The ending of this book is truly shocking and I did not see it coming. I loved this book and read it in two days!. This amazing book will be published in April 2021 and its a must add to yo
