In this book review of “The Good Girl” I admire the writer’s use of suspense. This one is full of “hold your breath” moments that keep you turning the pages.

There are so many twists and turns in this one (and you won’t quite figure out that you were twisting and turning until the last few pages, I kid you not) that I was a bit chagrined that I did not see these plot twists coming. 

You won’t either. 

Here’s a snippet: “I’ve been following her for the past few days. I know where she buys her groceries, where she has her dry cleaning done, where she works. I don’t know the color of her eyes or what they look like when she’s scared. But I will.”

When the back cover of a book says that it’s a twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut, you think: Yeah, that’s what they all say

This book is about a young woman taken by a young man, who was supposed to turn her over to someone else. But for some reason, does not. 
What ensues is the two living together in a remote cabin, broken into of course, barely tolerating the other. Until…

I’m not telling you anymore. But if you pick up this book, and get right down to the end and those twisty turning things happen that smack you up side of the head, don’t say I didn’t warn you. 

Don’t you dare read the end first! I hope you enjoyed this book review.

  1. I made a note about this book when you first mentioned it, so I'm glad to hear it was a winner! And another coming out?!? I better pick it up and get busy reading! Thanks, Brenda!

  2. Your right, they all say the same things on the back of the book, so it can be hard to choose. When I find one that I didn't see the end coming, I end up thinking it's a very good book. I usually have them figured out and love it when they surprise me. I'll try the Good Girl. The Lincoln Rhyme novels by Jeffery Deaver are good page turners with good twists often.

  3. Brenda, you have truly pulled me in with your snippets!! It's now on my Amazon wish list!
    Oh, by the way, did you sign up as an affiliate so that when you mention the books, camera or anything you get financial credit? I hope so, because I'd like to help you in the future with my purchases.
