“There are two love stories in this book — the budding one between Dave and Marisa, and the established relationship between Nia and Sandro. Both romantic story lines are well developed and engaging. But what really caught my attention in this book was the masterful depiction of the two female characters, Marisa and Nia. Both are strong, smart, and sympathetic, using their wits and whatever skills they have to survive in dangerous circumstances.” ~VANESSA KELLY, Love Rocks Column
“With THE GOOD DAUGHTER, Diana Layne delivers all the elements of a classic romantic suspense–fast pace, a layered and twisty plot, memorable characters and the perfect balance of sensuality. An exceptionally well-executed element of Mafia culture combined with a high level of danger make the book fresh and impossible to put down.” ~LINDA CASTILLO, New York Times bestselling author of BREAKING SILENCE
