Synopsis: Love was given to all, except herself . . .
Kit Brennan has always been the most grounded of her sisters. A Catholic school English teacher for seventeen years and a constant giver, her decisions have been sound—just not very satisfying. Her fortieth birthday is right around the corner, causing Kit to consider some wilder notions, like skipping right past the love and marriage to raising a child all by herself . . .
A girls’ weekend away is just the reprieve Kit needs from school, Mr. Wrongs, and life-changing decisions. It’s there that she meets a man who’s dangerous; a man who challenges who she thought she was, or rather should be. Kit wants to indulge herself this once, but with one of her students in crisis and the weight of her family’s burdens weighing heavy on her heart, Kit isn’t sure if now is the time to let her own desires take flight . . .
My Review: I really enjoyed The Good Daughter! This is the second book in the Brennan Sisters series, but can be read as a stand alone. I really liked Kit in the first book, The Good Woman and was so excited she was the main focus of The Good Daughter!
Kit is the daughter that is known as being the one that always makes the right decision, the peace keeper in the family, does the right thing.....the good one! But we find out Kit has a secret side too! While away, she walks on the wild side and she knows her family will not approve. Keep in mind Kate is single, forty and wants to be a mother.
Kit also struggles with her mother losing the battle to cancer. Be prepared to have some kleenex near by. There are other twists and turns in the book regarding a student, that I didn't see coming.
The Good Daughter is a quick read that was very enjoyable! Perfect for weekend read.
