Daisy Darker by Alice Feeney

This is the second book I’ve read by Feeney; the first was Rock Paper Scissors. Daisy Darker is kind of like a remake of And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. A family gets together after many years of not talking to celebrate Nana’s birthday. Except at midnight, Nana is found dead. Then an hour later, someone else in the family is dead…
I’ve read various reviews after reading this one and it definitely has some mixed reviews. There’s a big, overarching twist that kind of ruined things for some as they guessed it early on. I did not, so it was still a surprise for me. I think I’d still have liked the book even guessing the big twist because there were still other interesting twists and turns, and secrets revealed.
I gave this one four stars, and I’ll definitely read more by Feeney. I still have a few from her back list to get through!

I haven’t really liked the ones I’ve read by her. She gets mixed reviews for sure.
I’m not much of a mystery reader, but I think I’ve read some other retellings of this Christie story. Thanks for sharing your review!
Oh I’ve been wanting to read this!!!
I love that title lol
Thrillers are hot or miss for me but I’ve liked a few (& I think one of hers) on audio.

Glad to hear you liked this one. I didn’t guess any of the twists either so I quite enjoyed it too.
This one has my interest piqued — and the Agatha Christie retelling too! I rarely see twists coming every else says theyc ould see coming a mile away. It makes me feel very inadequate at time but then I get lost in the book and enjoy the surprise.
