"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."Born to a prominent Chicago judge and his stifled socialite wife, Mia Dennett moves against the grain as a young inner-city art teacher. One night, Mia enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. With his smooth moves and modest wit, Colin Thatcher seems at first like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life.Colin's job was to abduct Mia as part of a wild extortion plot and deliver her to his employers. But the plan takes an unexpected turn when Colin suddenly decides to hide Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota, evading the police and his deadly superiors. 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 compulsive debut that reveals how, even in the perfect family, nothing is as it seems.

While I didn't predict the exact ending of this book it was somewhat anti-climatic. It seems a little flat and left many things unresolved for me.

I absolutely did not like this book. The storyline felt awkward, clumsy. The dialog sent me into fits – tantrums. Every character annoyed and frustrated me to record breaking levels. Simply put, I just couldn’t buy anything this story was selling. That said, I can see why this book is either loved or hated but rarely in-between.

3.5 stars
More than a thriller, this book was a study in the psychology of a family that looks nearly perfect on the outside, but is a mess when behind the closed doors of their home. There are a loveless marriage between a subservient wife and a critical, greedy husband, and sisters whose natural competition is escalated by their father's constant comparisons of one to the other. No wonder Mia begins to fall for her captor, who just might be her savior, as well. Parts of the book are predictable, but it's a solid debut, and I would read this author's next offering.
