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.

  • Awful

    By creatinedream
    An extremely boring and pointless read. The characters are flat and unremarkable. You’d think that men only care about sex and guns from the way they’re written in this book. The plot twists can be seen from a mile away, this is coming from someone who rarely ever anticipates twists. Don’t waste your money or time.

    Great twist ending!
  • Sorry I wasted my time reading this

    One star is generous. The author is clearly a novice who fails to put her idea for the story into words that make a believable plot. And on top of that, it’s racist and filled with stereotypes and an anti-abortion message. This book is the opposite of sophisticated writing.
  • Slow and slightly boring

    I love Mary Kubicas work but this just didn’t do it for me there wasn’t a major thrill at any point and it just felt as though it dragged on for much longer than it needed to.

    It’s a really captivating story. This is one of the few books that I would do anything to be able to read for the first time again. Definitely going to buy the actual book so I can add to my collection. It’s worth the read, absolutely worth it.
