    This book, like many others, is recommended for fans of Gone Girl, but I think if you gave it some different marketing and a younger protagonist, you could easily slot this in among the YA/NA romances. If this book hadn't been the only one I was carrying on a flight, I doubt I woul...

    This is a debut?!!? WHAT? We need more authors like this out here. This book is not at all what it seems. I was expecting a book like Gone Girl and what I got was a relative of it. If you liked Gone Girl, you will like The Good Girl. It had me racing through the pages until the ver...

    Dear publishing world, for the love of all that is holy, can we stop referring to any book with a scintilla of suspense in it as "the next Gone Girl"? Honestly, these books have very little in common (except for one or two unlikeable characters), so the comparison either sets up unfair...

    The cover and title typography says ?I?m smart and edgy! See that reverse ?R?? It probably means something related to why the blonde chick wants you to keep quiet. Don?t you want to know why?? And you know I?m all over the smart and edgy with the hint of smart, edgy mindf...

    Well. I'm not sure whether to give this book a 3 or 4 star rating, so we'll call it a 3.5. Short synopsis: Mia is kidnapped by Colin. Colin is supposed to turn her over to those he works for. Colin decides to keep her in remote cabin instead. We spend entire novel trying to put tog...

    I hated this novel. It was neither suspenseful nor a thriller. There is a completely predictable "twist" at the end, but good luck making it that far. I skimmed the last 75%. For a while I tried to figure out what was bothering me-the lack of character motivation that made sense? My in...

    Honestly? I hated this book. The characters were flat and unlikeable, the plot was boring. Everything was a cliche. The worst part is that it was pretty racist. One of the characters, who is black, is described as having "serpentine eyes" and being wild and unpredictable and phy...

    It's not that Mia was a particularly good girl - she was pretty normal really; got drunk as a teenager, did all the normal things that most of us do. But she had a good heart, a kind heart. She's not particularly close to her family, but that's normal in the first flight of indepen...

    Maaan, This book is really a good twisty dark novel .The ending was heartbreaking and infuriating , I was so mad and upset when I finished it I literally did throw it across the room ! The story is about Mia, a 25 year old girl who is kidnapped from a bar, Colin/Owen is hired to kidnap...

    The Good Girl by Mary Kubica was a well written debut novel with a plot that is intereting enough to keep the reader turning the pages The story is told from multiple perspectives and is quite easy to follow. This is the sort of book that provides enough suspense to keep you reading...

    Honestly? I hated this book. The characters were flat and unlikeable, the plot was boring. Everything was a cliche. The worst part is that it was pretty racist. One of the characters, who is black, is described as having "serpentine eyes" and being wild and unpredictable and phy...

    Ho Humm.... That's my initial feeling after finishing this! It certainly wasn't bad, I just felt like I kind of meandered through waiting for something exciting to happen! I was kept interested mainly because I knew something had to happen because it was only 350 pgs! The 'twist' kept ...

    It's not that Mia was a particularly good girl - she was pretty normal really; got drunk as a teenager, did all the normal things that most of us do. But she had a good heart, a kind heart. She's not particularly close to her family, but that's normal in the first flight of indepen...

    DE LO MEJOR QUE HE LEÍDO ESTE AÑO Una buena chica es un thriller trepidante que me ha enganchado a su lectura como hace mucho tiempo no me enganchaba a un libro. Una novela cargada de giros, con personajes profundizados y con unos toques psicológicos que la han hecho de lo mej...

    After all of the glowing reviews I've seen for Mary Kubica, this was actually a bit of a disappointment. Whomp, whomp Someone has paid to have Mia kidnapped. Colin, her kidnapper, is hired to do the dirty work. But instead of taking her to his boss, he whisks Mia away to a remote...

    This riveting story grabbed my attention and held me captive. It is woven with twists and turns which will surprise any reader. My favorite part of the book was the smartly structured and creative format, jumping both in perspective and time. The story is told from alternating perspect...

    I loved this book The Good Girl Kubica is a well written novel which was a real page turner warning the book goes backwards & forwards which i am getting used to the plot was great & i felt a liking towards Colin The Protagonist he had a close relationship to Mia & she beca...

    For fans of Gone Girl, you will love The Good Girl..Highly suspenseful, I finished it in 2 days. The story revolves around a woman who is kidnapped and spends time with her assailant in the backwoods of Minnesota. Three different narrators, her mother, the police detective and the kidn...

    An excellent thriller about a woman (Mia Dennett) who is abducted for ransom and the plan goes wrong, or does it? Dun dun dunnnnn? The chapters alternate between Eve (Mia?s mother), Gabe (detective), and Colin (the abductor). We learn all about Mia?s family including her dad w...

    Mia Dennett goes to a bar one evening, planning to meet up with the man she's been seeing. He cancels after she arrives but ends up with Colin Thatcher, a man hired to abduct her. What ensues is a bizarre story told by several narrators. I found the story interesting, especially it...

    Quick review for a not so quick, and often infuriating read. For Mary Kubica's "The Good Girl" - I'll admit this book kept me reading for quite a bit of the novel to see what would happen through the perspectives of Eve, Gabe and Colin. I really liked the audio narration among a multip...

    Honestly? I hated this book. The characters were flat and unlikeable, the plot was boring. Everything was a cliche. The worst part is that it was pretty racist. One of the characters, who is black, is described as having "serpentine eyes" and being wild and unpredictable and phy...

    Well. I'm not sure whether to give this book a 3 or 4 star rating, so we'll call it a 3.5. Short synopsis: Mia is kidnapped by Colin. Colin is supposed to turn her over to those he works for. Colin decides to keep her in remote cabin instead. We spend entire novel trying to put tog...

    I hated this novel. It was neither suspenseful nor a thriller. There is a completely predictable "twist" at the end, but good luck making it that far. I skimmed the last 75%. For a while I tried to figure out what was bothering me-the lack of character motivation that made sense? My in...

    Mia is the 25 year old daughter of a Chicago judge. She is kidnapped, but the kidnapper changes his mind and doesn?t turn her over to the person that ordered the crime. Eventually, she is returned home but is in a total fog as to what has happened. The story is told by multiple narra...

    Maaan, This book is really a good twisty dark novel .The ending was heartbreaking and infuriating , I was so mad and upset when I finished it I literally did throw it across the room ! The story is about Mia, a 25 year old girl who is kidnapped from a bar, Colin/Owen is hired to kidnap...

    The Good Girl by Mary Kubica was a well written debut novel with a plot that is intereting enough to keep the reader turning the pages The story is told from multiple perspectives and is quite easy to follow. This is the sort of book that provides enough suspense to keep you reading...

    Honestly? I hated this book. The characters were flat and unlikeable, the plot was boring. Everything was a cliche. The worst part is that it was pretty racist. One of the characters, who is black, is described as having "serpentine eyes" and being wild and unpredictable and phy...

    Ho Humm.... That's my initial feeling after finishing this! It certainly wasn't bad, I just felt like I kind of meandered through waiting for something exciting to happen! I was kept interested mainly because I knew something had to happen because it was only 350 pgs! The 'twist' kept ...

    It's not that Mia was a particularly good girl - she was pretty normal really; got drunk as a teenager, did all the normal things that most of us do. But she had a good heart, a kind heart. She's not particularly close to her family, but that's normal in the first flight of indepen...

    DE LO MEJOR QUE HE LEÍDO ESTE AÑO Una buena chica es un thriller trepidante que me ha enganchado a su lectura como hace mucho tiempo no me enganchaba a un libro. Una novela cargada de giros, con personajes profundizados y con unos toques psicológicos que la han hecho de lo mej...

    **** GoodReads Giveaway Winner *** The publishers of this book will tell you that The Good Girl is the next Gone Girl. It is not, don?t even bother. There are no fantastic plot twists because you pretty much know from the beginning what is going to happen. The clues are not so...

    I picked up a copy of The Good Girl as the author, Ms. Mary Kubica, is scheduled for a Q&A in one of my Goodreads groups. I found this book to be an excellent debut novel and a highly enjoyable read. The Good Girl is an almost completely character-driven story; the main players ...

    Well. I'm not sure whether to give this book a 3 or 4 star rating, so we'll call it a 3.5. Short synopsis: Mia is kidnapped by Colin. Colin is supposed to turn her over to those he works for. Colin decides to keep her in remote cabin instead. We spend entire novel trying to put tog...
