Natalie Greco loves being a law professor, even though she secretly feels like the faculty’s comic relief. She loves her family too, but as a bookworm, she 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

  • “Scottoline’s characters are fully dimensional; Rosenblat breathes life into them. The author’s cast is large; Rosenblat invents a huge range of voices to enliven the exciting story.”

    AudioFile

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

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 2/8/2014

    " Lots of twists at the end! The only thing that bothers me a bit is the title. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melany | 2/5/2014

    " Not typically what I read, but really enjoyed it.The author lives in Philly and its fun when she mentions local places and sports teams. "

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

    " This is an enjoyable read. It has some decent plot twists and plenty of the basic pulp fiction fodder to keep the pages turning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 daysgoby | 1/24/2014

    " I liked this! Quick paced law-thriller with HUMOUR and interesting (non-mob or crack whore) characters...will be reading more of this author! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 1/24/2014

    " Good suspenseful book. I guess I would classify this as a crime mystery. A law professor accompanies a colleague into a prison to teach a law class to criminals. While she is there, a riot breaks out and she is assaulted. However, when the details come out in the newspaper, they are not reflective of what really happened. When she starts to dig, the warnings and threats begin. One of those good books where you don't know which characters to trust and who's lying. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elise | 1/20/2014

    " I loved this book. I was kept on the edge of my set. You never know what kind of a twist is coming next. "

    " Scottoline read by Rosenblat is always a satisfying listen for me. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Pbwritr | 1/13/2014

    " Prison riot leaves people dead, and the protagonist, a law professor, becomes involved in figuring out they were murdered. Sort of slow; too much other stuff about boyfriend and family. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lesley | 10/29/2013

    " I think my reading habits have changed. I probably would have enjoyed this a decade or too ago but I was glad to finish it. An OK read but not enough guts or depth to it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 10/26/2013

    " Scottoline is a consistantly good read. This is not Scottoline at her very best, but it is still a darn good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Woodruff | 10/6/2013

    " I can't help it. This writer has a style I like to read. This is another winner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim Tarry | 9/29/2013

    " I honestly only read this because I had run out of my own books and my partner had this one. I did get really into it though and kept wanting to read more every time I put it down. It really grips you and the end of each chapter leaves you wanting to start the next "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Sikorski | 9/28/2013

    " I could not put this book down. Lisa Scottoline is a new author for me and I really enjoyed all the twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvette | 9/19/2013

    " Enjoyable dribble "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 alisonwonderland | 8/24/2013

    " A great audiobook "read"! Laugh-out-loud funny in places. Enough twists and turns to keep me guessing to the end. Meaningful exploration of what "justice" means, with references to "The Merchant of Venice" and the Underground Railroad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 7/22/2013

    " I really liked this book and couldn't put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Errin | 11/6/2012

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Iris | 10/23/2012

    " Just great!!! I like thrillers that have everything on them, Romance, Action, Drama, good twists and this definetively has it all!! and you really dont't expect what happens in the end, that's the most amazing thing of it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pandora | 9/27/2012

    " This is the second book I read by her and I love all the twist and turns her books take. BUT - I hate the epilogues she writes - everything doesnt have to be wrapped up in a pretty bow at the end and she ruins the book each time this way. I might read one more and just not read the epilogue "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 9/15/2012

    " Good book with some great twist and turns. First 100 Pages were slow. Then it's all down hill from there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 9/8/2012

    " Having read "Lady Killer" first, I had some expectations for this book. However, I was pleasantly surprised and found that I actually like it better than "Lady Killer". An easy beach read even for the fall months when it is cool and dreary. Enjoyed this quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 8/18/2012

    " A good twisting mystery--didn't see that conclusion coming...Lots of action that happens a bit fast, kind of like how an invloved situation gets solved and cleaned up in a one hour TV show. But not unsatisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 6/10/2012

    " The ending surprised me, which was nice. I'm definitely interested in reading more Lisa Scottoline books after this one, which was my first (thanks, Melissa!). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 2/15/2012

    " Soooo many plot twists! Very enjoyable read-- I had such a hard time putting it down to sleep. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorie | 8/27/2011

    " Had a really hard time getting into this until the last 150 pages. Didn't see the twist at the end coming! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christina | 5/12/2011

    " I would not be suprised if this was Lisa Scottoline's first novel. The story has some good ideas but not very well executed. "

  • 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! "
