The Mobster's Daughter Review

Updated: Nov 24, 2021

"What had begun as bitter regret had concluded with traces of life. This piece had become my prayer."


After reading (and loving) Undercurrent of Secrets earlier this year, I knew that I absolutely had to get my hands on Rachel Scott McDaniel's next release.

While The Mobster's Daughter is very different from Undercurrent of Secrets, it still has the heart of what I've come to expect from McDaniel's work.


One of my favourite elements of this story is its characters. I could feel every moment of anguish, every glimmer of hope, and the effect of every pain-filled decision. Catarina and Rhett are two incredible characters who find themselves in impossible circumstances that push them beyond their limits. Their love story was beautifully written, and so well balanced with their individual character arcs.

Another thing I love about this book is the fascinating historical tidbits unobtrusively sprinkled throughout. When I read the author's note at the end, I was surprised (and delighted) to learn just how many of the details mentioned in the story actually happened!


I'd recommend it to fans of Historical Romance, and especially to those who enjoy books by Kate Breslin, Rachel McMillan, Julie Lessman, Roseanna White, and Grace Hitchcock.
