‘An absolute masterpiece’ ANGELA MARSONS
‘Twists and turns and delivers a satisfying shot of tension’ RACHEL ABBOTT
When sixteen-year-old Erin Ellis is attacked, she dies in the arms of her best friend Molly, just metres from her home. Molly is the surviving girl but says she easily could have been the victim – it was a random mugging gone wrong.
With inconclusive evidence, DS Grace Allendale must dig deep within the tight-knit Stoke community for leads. And she soon finds that someone had a motive to kill Erin.
As the investigation unfolds, Grace is reminded of a horrifying case she worked on earlier in her career.
Is the past coming back to haunt her? And can she push through her fear to catch Erin’s killer before it’s too late?

Molly and Erin have been best friends pretty much from birth. Their mothers are also best friends and have been since they were four years old. The death of Erin has an awful impact on both families. It soon becomes clear though that Erin’s death isn’t a straight forward mugging but something way more sinister than I could ever have envisioned.
This was a highly charged and at times, emotional read. Towards the end I have to admit to either tearing up or full on tears at certain parts. I got so wrapped up in this case that it was hard not to get emotionally involved.
The story flicks from present with Grace and the team working together on the case as well as to Molly and Erin in the run up to Erin’s murder. It makes for some harrowing reading that again had me go through so many emotions. Grace’s past is never far behind which causes her more issues and nothing is sadly ever straight forward.
Good Girl was a powerful read that really grabbed hold of me as well as making quite an impact. Its written in a way that the reader will struggle to put the book down and even when you do, all you can think about are the characters and the case. There are some jaw dropping moments that I hadn’t expected and boy was I literally on the edge of my seat as things really ramp up towards the end. This is one hard hitting crime thriller that packs more than a punch.
