The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA

Summary:  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.

This one borders on an ok and a like. I liked it enough to finish reading it but really I wasn't all that interested overall. There are several things that I thought would happen that indeed did and one that was so absolutely irritating that I was never quite won back as a reader. Still, I'm glad that I read this as I've got another off my TBR pile and in a summer full of books, that's a very good thing. I'd read another by this author as I liked her writing though I felt some of the plot here fell down and never recovered.
