“Only a few pages into the story it’s clear why Romantic Times awarded The Good Daughter 4.5 stars and made it a TOP PICK. The best description I can give the book is romantic suspense at its best with a touch of The Godfather. Diana Layne brings her Italian heroine to life with an authenticity that makes this Mafia story ring true. Her knack for dialogue is wonderful and her characters are well-drawn. I couldn’t put this one down. I expect to see a lot more great books from this author and am looking forward to her future releases.” ~ Laurie K, Amazon Reviews
