The Trophy Child by Paula Daly. #BookReview by Doncaster Library staff - Once again Paula Daly has written a novel full of suspense, humour and surprises. I am always enthralled by her books and this, in my opinion, is her best yet. The Trophy Child tells the story of a very dysfunctional family and a poses the question "Is the mother a pushy parent or doting mother". I hope fans of thrillers will enjoy this as much as me. I literally couldn't turn the pages fast enough!
