The Invisible Heiress is a love letter to mothers and daughters disguised as a thriller. I believe mothers and their children share nearly unbreakable bonds. This book is my ode to that belief.

The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘Preston Blair, a blogger with a dark sense of humor, is committed to a private psychiatric hospital, accused of a shocking crime. Her father Todd’s influence as a D.A. has kept her from prison, but her sanity remains on a knife-edge.
Preston’s therapist, Isabel, is too preoccupied working her latest con on a rich, married, sadomasochistic secret lover, to care about Preston’s problems, even when Preston tells her that her socialite mother, Harrison Blair, had committed an unthinkable crime herself years before—one that might help explain Preston’s own misdeeds.
When Preston’s absent husband, Brendan, suddenly turns up and tries to prove her innocence, tragedy strikes. Preston’s convinced her parents were involved, but it turns out to be much more complicated. As Preston delves deeper into the mystery, her head clears and a devastating event that she had long erased from her muddled mind comes rushing back.
Stumbling onto video evidence, which exposes a killer’s greed and lust for power, Preston finds her own life is in danger from a surprising and once trusted source. She discovers that the truth hurts. It just might be the death of her…’
Now, if that’s not enough to get your curiosity juices flowing, I don’t know what will. But if you want to find out what happens, you’ll just have to turn the pages for yourself! However, I will say it was well worth the read. It’s my first time reading this author and I must say I was very impressed.
I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class psychological thriller with perfect pacing. Not much is as it appears here, which is just the way fans of mystery, thriller and suspense will want it!
The Invisible Heiress had every element a good story should have. An intriguing plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.
It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!
I’ll be looking forward to reading more from Kathleen O'Donnell in the future. I would absolutely recommend this book to all fans of the mystery, thriller and suspense genre. Five stars from me.
I bought this book this morning and just finished it. I struggled putting it down, I found myself being the mom who rips open the Oreo bag and sets it on the table just so the kids would keep quiet. The twists and turns along with with the dark humor had me engulfed for hours. I found this to keep me on the edge and finally an ending that I couldn’t guess. The writing was crafty to say the least. To be honest I own 2 Walters and they are as amazing as described!
Finished this book just moments ago and wow, I LOVED it. Talk about a page turner, and tight, smart writing that never lets you rest. Super twisty, clever plot with a few shockers I never saw coming. GREAT characters, even when I didn’t like them, I loved them as a reader. This book will stick in my head for a while, like all book hangovers should!
Preston, a young woman is undergoing treatment for drug abuse. She's a Heiress, with tons of money but has become a nasty, foul mouth, disgusting human being. ( I disliked her character so much, I almost deleted the book...... I'm glad I kept reading.)
As difficult as some of the incidents were to read, I began to notice rays of sunshine breaking through. The back story had many twists with psychological drama that was unexpected and shocking.
Once I got into this book, I couldn't put it down. The suspense and drama just kept coming. I will read more of Kathleen O'Donnell' s work.
It’s rare for me to get hooked on a book via the very first page. But that is exactly what happened when I started reading The Invisible Heiress. I enjoyed every page and it’s not an exaggeration to say - every sentence of this modern day mystery thriller. Kathleen O’Donnell’s has a special gift that tells a story set with characters surrounded with wealth, privilege, sex, addiction, love and loss - It’s one of the best books I have read in a long long time. There has only been two authors (and I am a ferocious reader) that I will literally go back and re-read what they wrote because the phrasing of the words are so clever or beautifully thought provoking. Now I can say 3 authors because Kathleen O’Donnell did this very thing for me – I even took it a step further and got a yellow highlighter and highlighted many of her sentences. Not only is The Invisible Heiress a classic “who done it” page turner but there are many surprises along the way. I found myself laughing out loud, cheering for the good guys and gals, booing for the villain and in the end - I simply wanted more. I hope O’Donnell writes a sequel. I hope this story makes it to the big screen. It was that good!
A wonderfully gripping read...I couldn’t put it down! The complexity of the characters and the intrigue of the story kept me riveted throughout. The character dialogue was amazingly consistent with the depth and complexity of the characters. The story is told from multiple first-person perspectives and weaves expertly through intricate plot twists and unexpected surprises that keep you glued to the page. I would very highly recommend this book to anyone! An extremely entertaining and interesting book!
This book was an absolutely delightful read. I had read the author's previous book, The Last Day for Rob Rhino, several years ago and eagerly awaited the release of the second novel. I found the characters in The Invisible Heiress, like in Rob Rhino, to be hilarious, quirky, wonderfully flawed and yet still ultimately quite loveable.! This was also such a fun read and keeps getting better and better. Every time I thought I had something figured out, I was struck with another curveball. And such an incredibly satisfying conclusion. I could absolutely see this being an awesome series as well and would love to see the protagonist, Preston Blair, in another book, but will be satisfied either way as long as Ms. O'Donnell continues to produce fabulous books.
