(75)The Good Daughter by Jane Porter

The Good Daughter

Pages: 384
Publication Date: February 5, 2013

Kit Brennan has always been The Good Daughter  of the Brennan clan.  She is a teacher at a Catholic school, she looks after her sisters and helps out her parents, just as expected.  After ending a ten year long relationship, Kit  is ready for her "time" though. Ready to find her "true love" and ready to start her family, even though with the dating pool as wretched as it is, she seriously doubts she will ever find true love.

After dating some real duds Kit is starting to believe that "the one" is just a myth and thinks that being alone is a good thing.  One of those "one date wonders" even shows up at school in a manner that makes the hair on the back of her neck stand on end. And it gets even worse when he enrolls his Step-Daughter in Kit's school and Kit finds herself smack dab in the middle of one teen's nightmare.  That is when an unexpected "knight in shining armor" shows up in Kit's life. Will he be able to convince Kit that they will be really good together?

There is a lot of action packed into The Good Daughter, but I don't want to reveal too much of the plot so I will just leave it as is and say you gotta just read the book.  I love Kit and I loved her dynamic with Jude.  It was sweet and hot and something that every good little Catholic girl dreams about.  I will say that it was hard to watch Kit's mom get sicker with cancer.  It just brought back so many ugly memories that it only made it seem that much more real for me.   The entire Brennan family pays a huge role in this book, just like the previous book, and made me miss my own Irish-Catholic family.

Bottom line, if you read Meg's story then you have to read Kit's story.  Another tender novel about the importance of family and how love fits into that family.  A truly good read.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
