Natalie Greco loves being a law professor, even though she secretly feels like Faculty Comic Relief. She loves her family, too, but as a bookworm, doesn't quite fit into the cult of Greco football, headed by her father, the team captain. The one person whom she feels most connected to is her colleague Angus Holt, a guy with a brilliant mind, gorgeous façade, and a penchant for helping those less fortunate. When he talks Nat into teaching a class at a local prison, her world turns upside down.

A violent prison riot breaks out during the class, and in the chaos, Nat rushes to help a grievously injured guard. Before he dies, he asks her to deliver a cryptic message: "Tell my wife it's under the floor."

Plunged into a nightmare, Nat suddenly finds herself suspected of a brutal murder and encounters threats to her life. Now, not only are the cops after her, but ruthless killers are desperate to keep her from exposing their secret. In the meantime, she gets dangerously close to Angus, shaking her dedication to her safe boyfriend.

With her love life in jeopardy, her career in the balance, and her life on the line, Nat must rely on her resources, her intelligence, and her courage. Forced into hiding to stay alive, she sets out to save herself by deciphering the puzzle behind the dead guard's last words...and learns the secret behind the greatest puzzle of all—herself.

Filled with the ingenious twists, pulse-pounding narrative drive, and dynamic, flesh-and-blood characters, Daddy's Girl is another wild, entertaining ride from the addictively readable Lisa Scottoline.

Quotes & Awards

  • “While not as sexually supercharged or frenetically paced as Dirty Blonde, Daddy’s Girl derives its power from the subtle and compelling coming-of-age of protagonist Greco, a sheltered and socially naïve woman who, when faced with the ultimate adversity, discovers herself.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “This one finds the author in good form, combining suspense- and character-building effectively.”

    Booklist

  • “Kate Burton powerfully characterizes a varied cast and makes them believable in this compelling legal thriller.”

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara Ripley | 2/3/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book. I listened to it on the bus and it was short and sweet and didn't mess around. It was a pretty good mystery and I was surprised at the end! So all around a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 2/3/2014

    " I was more like a 3 and a half! This is the second book I have read by Lisa and so far I really like them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/23/2014

    " I used to love mysteries and then sort of moved away from them. A fun story, title not-with-standing, this is a story of a Law Professor who gets mixed up in a prison riot, a murder, a drug framing and a new romance- there were many twists and turns up the bitter end. It was fun for a change and surely not considered deep by any means. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Reuben Cohen | 1/16/2014

    " A good mystery because it never goes to the obvious places. "

    " I like reading Lisa Scottoline, but this was not a favorite. Was a little tedious reading at times. Less sharp than some of her other efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danielle | 12/4/2013

    " I've become a fan of Lisa's books, but I was disappointed in this one. I actually gave it 2 1/2 stars. The story was good, but I don't know, it dragged a bit. Sorry Lisa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 9/24/2013

    " I've seen Scottoline numerous times on Court TV so I was wary of reading this book fearing that it would be a trashy crime read. Fortunately, it wasn't at all trashy. Not as good as watching an episode of Law and Order but still it was a complete page turner and definitely worth my time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 4/11/2012

    " Sad book; moderately entertaining plot, but didn't like the ending or most of the characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 4/7/2012

    " Good beach reading. Now, if only I were on the beach. I enjoy her books especially because she is a client of ours (and such a nice person like you said, Heather) and the settings are familiar. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Errin | 2/7/2012

    " Looks smutty, and does have a little sex element to it, but really is a good book. It's a simple little "mind candy" book, but I really enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol Aselton Benoit | 11/16/2011

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kendra | 7/23/2011

    " I didn't actually finish this one. I made it to page 73, but the writing was terrible and the book was boring, so...I have better things to do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 6/19/2011

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keely | 5/16/2011

    " This book was extremely entertaining and kept me on my toes until the very end. I would have given it a five if the writing was a little better and did not include the occasional internal thoughts in italics. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 5/8/2011

    " The main character, Nat Greco reminded me of a miniature Steven Segal. She can make it through anything without getting caught or killed. Still, I wanted to keep reading to find out who was all involved in the coverup. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 5/6/2011

    " The title was pretty misleading, as there's not a sense of her being a daddy's girl so much as she's somewhat under the thumb of her boisterous, mostly male family. Not my favorite Scottoline "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kara | 4/7/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. I listened to it on the bus and it was short and sweet and didn't mess around. It was a pretty good mystery and I was surprised at the end! So all around a fun read.
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 3/18/2011

    " I like Scottoline. She's a woman's woman who is strong powerful, and her character's reflect this. I had a relative that started me reading these, and I've really enjoyed them. Some are tougher than others and harder to read, but I really liked this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nathalie | 2/27/2011

    " OK - not great - I guess it is her writing style to do a quick wrap up at the end... I kinda don't need to read anymore of her books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 2/14/2011

    " Eh. It was entertainment but forgettable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/14/2011

    " Good mystery book, I enjoyed the story line and the twists and turns throughout the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 1/13/2011

    " I liked the book. There were a lot of twists to it. I had guess one and was almost disappointed that I was wrong until I ended up being right. Good pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renie | 1/4/2011

    " Some knuckle biting, brow furrowing, decent reading at last! Woo-hoo! "
