My views 4/5
Quite a lot of the reviews I have read all compare this book to Gone Girl, as I haven't read Gone Girl yet I really can't say if they are similar or not.
What I can say is this book was really well written, and I can not believe this book is a debut. If this is the authors first book then I guess we are in for some real treats in the future. I can really see this book flying off the shelve, and rushing its way up the book charts.
The book is told from various aspects The chapters go from past to present, before and after the event. And took me a little to get my head around, but once I did i really enjoyed it.
The story revolves around Mia who has been kidnapped. The kidnapper - Colin. The Detective - Gabe and Mia's Mother Eve.
I don't want to go into to many details as it really would give to much of the story away. But a very enjoyable book with a OMG- i didn't see that... at the end.. I have just re read the last 2 chapters to make sure I had got it right... WOW
I recieved an ARC of this book. the file i was sent was just terrible, I started reading the book and had to stop at 15% as i didnt have a clue what was what, there was no chapters everything just continued and It took me ages to realise it had changed perspective and was on another part of the story,
Luckily i managed to get a corrected copy and started the book again. I'm glad I did.
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 colour of her eyes or what they look like when they're scared. But I will.Mia Dennett can't resist a one-night stand with the enigmatic stranger she meets in a bar.
But going home with him might turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life...
An addictively suspensful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems...
