Read the bestseller everyone is talking about!

"A cleverly constructed suspense thriller." —Chicago Tribune, Printer's Row

"A twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut. Fans of Gone Girl will embrace this equally evocative tale." —Lisa Gardner, #1 New York Times bestselling author

"Riveting psychological thriller."—Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author on Don't You Cry

"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."

One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. At first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.

When Colin decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota instead of delivering her to his employers, Mia's mother, Eve, and detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them. But no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this family's world to shatter.

An addictively suspenseful and tautly written thriller, The Good Girl is a propulsive debut that reveals how even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems.

    This book really kept me in suspense right up to the final page. It had a little of everything, intrigue, romance, nostalgia, hopefulness and reality. Well worth reading.
  • Wanted to like this

    By Idon't have one
    Seemed like a good choice, sort of dragged on and not the best ending.
  • Sooooo a good!

    By Moving to Caviar
    I woke up in the middle of the night to keep reading. One of the best books this year!
  • Good Plot Twist

    By MS3011
    Good plot twist but the chapter headings and the back and forth was annoying.
  • The first book that ever made me cry!

    By Joey24Stoke
    What a thoroughly well written book. Full of surprises right until the very end. What a great delve into two complex characters that aren’t as different as they first seem. Brilliant.
  • Don’t include characters of color if you will villainize them

    By kikyo93_
    I liked it I guess. But it was difficult to read past some things like the way people of color are portrayed. I don’t have a problem with the antagonist being a big black man but if all your characters of color are criminals who kidnapped an innocent blood woman. It just doesn’t sit right with me. This was awful. Just terrible
  • Crazy twist!

    By JPA311
    Keeps you at the edge of your seat, falling in love with “the bad guy,” and the twist at the ends seals the deal for this to be a great read.
  • Awesomeness!

    By GlamGurl619
    I really loved the way this book moved; past and present, but easy to maneuver. Such a different tale. A strange love story and the most amazing twist! Kudos to our author for keeping us entertained and on our toes until the last word, quite literally. I wish I could read it again!
  • Less thrilling than paint drying

    By rush babe
    This book is nothing like Gone Girl! There was no suspense no thrills absolutely nothing! I kept reading just hoping for some excitement but it never developed. Don’t waste your time or money, this book is a boring account of day to day occurrences in the characters lives. Very boring
  • Over development

    By WillT6
    One of those authors who is more interested in developing her characters than the story.
