Publisher's Summary

"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.

Very Enjoyable Listen

I very much enjoyed this book. The story was good it had some good twists and turns. It moved at a good pace. The book swaps between four characters (well three for the most part). It follows the story of a girl who has been kidnapped. The main characters are the kidnapper, the police man looking for the her and the mother. I can't say too much as I don't want to spoil the story, but it is interesting.

The narration was excellent. I liked the four person narration. I found all the voices enjoyable to listen to.

Very Disappointed

What disappointed you about The Good Girl?

Unconvincing love story and implausible plot. The love story was described as encompassing but I didn't feel it. If they were so close why didn't Mia confide in Colin. I felt no compassion for the characters.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Kubica again?

I have already purchased another book by Mary Kubica, I have not yet listened to it and I am now wondering if I have made a mistake.

Did the narrators do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

The narrators did a good job and I liked Abe.

What character would you cut from The Good Girl?

Difficult to say as the only character I had any liking for was the detective.

Any additional comments?
