Publisher's Summary

My daughter thought she had found the man of her dreams. But now, her life is in danger....

When Ellie tells me she has a new boyfriend, I am absolutely thrilled and can’t wait to meet him. She finally seems so happy and in love.

But there’s a catch. Ellie has never met him in person. In fact, he doesn’t even live in the same country. Our home is in England, but Daryl is in Los Angeles.

When handsome Daryl invites Ellie to stay with him at his luxury Los Angeles mansion for a few weeks, I insist on joining her. I need to find out more about the man who has my daughter so enamoured. 

Daryl welcomes us into his whitewashed house, complete with a stunning swimming pool and sun-drenched patio. But one morning, I discover a terrible secret in his basement that changes everything. He has been lying to us from the start. 

I go to confront him, but Ellie and Daryl are nowhere to be found. I call Ellie’s phone, but there’s no answer.

Has something happened to my precious girl? And will I be able to save her? 

An utterly gripping psychological thriller that will keep you up all night from the author of the number one best-selling novel The Doctor’s Wife. If you love Gone Girl, The Night She Disappeared, and The Perfect Couple, you’ll be hooked by My Daughter’s Boyfriend.

confused

Confused about this book. the daughter is 25 and living at home why is her mum so protective? why would she go to America to meet her boyfriend? none of the characters have any redeeming qualities or even make you have any empathy. dreadful story with no depth or conclusion

Not Believable

This story was very tedious and none of the characters were likeable. The mother treated her 24 year old daughter like she was a 16 or 17 year old not a fully grown adult. The relationships just did not seem at all realistic. The ending was predictable.
