Publisher's Summary

Raised in a poor yet genteel household, Rachel Woodley is working in France as a governess when she receives news that her mother has died suddenly. Grief stricken, she returns to the small town in England where she was raised to clear out the cottage...and finds a cutting from a London society magazine, with a photograph of her supposedly deceased father dated all of three month before. He's an earl, respected and influential, and he is standing with another daughter - his legitimate daughter. Which makes Rachel...not legitimate. Everything she thought she knew about herself and her past - even her very name - is a lie.
Still reeling from the death of her mother and furious at this betrayal, Rachel sets herself up in London under a new identity. There she insinuates herself into the partygoing crowd of Bright Young Things, with a steely determination to unveil her father's perfidy and bring his - and her half sister's - charmed world crashing down. Very soon, however, Rachel faces two unexpected snags: She finds she genuinely likes her half-sister, Olivia, whose situation isn't as simple it appears; and she might just be falling for her sister's fiancé....
From Lauren Willig, author of the New York Times best-selling novel The Ashford Affair, comes The Other Daughter, an audiobook full of deceit, passion, and revenge.

Adequate.

An improbable story but entertaining if you don't think too hard about it. The only major flaw was that the narrator made the male love interest sound so sarcastic and obnoxious that even his own mother would be hard pressed to love him.

Would be better as a movie

With a few tweaks, this book would make a great Romantic Comedy Movie. Sadly for me I am not into rom-coms so I didn’t really care for most of the book.

The plot wasn’t that bad, and I must admit there were a few twists I didn’t see coming, but overall the lengths Rachel goes to to infiltrate her way into the inner circle and get close to her father was farfetched – it was a real stretch to think her plan would work. Had she just been more direct there would not have been a story, I get that! But the whole plot feel a little too contrived… trying too hard to be interesting.

Another reviewer described this story as “entertaining if you don't think too hard about it” and I think that sums it up perfectly!

Quite nice!

It's an easy listen. The narration is great! for me it comes second after Davina Porter. Due to such good narration the story seems more alive. The plot itself is interesting enough, but for me it was lacking a bit in romance. All in all, I liked it, but would have loved it if there was a little bit more focus on the fillings of the characters.

Good story

The synopsis sounded interesting .... the storyline was a good one but I think it might have been better for me to have read it rather than listened to as the narrator irritated me so much. The main character came across as spoiled and petulant, which really she was not. A good story spoiled by a melodramatic reading.
