Book Review: The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

The Good GirlThe Good Girl by Mary Kubica
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My book club chose this book & I am very glad they did. The Good Girl is the story of a young girl named Mia who is abducted, but the paid thug who has taken her has a last minute change of heart and drags Mia to a remote cabin in the woods to protect her and himself from the criminal who has arranged the kidnapping. The story follows three perspectives, the detective searching for Mia, Mia's mother Eve and Colin, the man who has taken her. As the story progresses we learn more about each character and how they are dealing with the stress. We never learn Mia's perspective until the very end of the story. Although some of the characters are stereotypical (the distant almost cruel father, the poor little rich suburban housewife etc) the three main voices in the story show us how life and its circumstances can change a person and their outlook. It was a fast read that kept my attention throughout. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a god psychological thriller.
