Blogger Book Club: The Good Girl

"The Good Girl," by Mary Kubica, was my book club pick. A good thriller. That's my cup of tea. Or rather coffee. 

There are so many twists and turns in this one (and you won't quite figure out that you were twisting and turning until the last few pages, I kid you not) that I was a bit chagrined that I did not see these plot twists coming. 

You won't either. 

Here's a snippet: “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.”

When the back cover of a book says that it's a twisty, roller coaster ride of a debut, you think: Yeah, that's what they all say

But if this was the debut for this author, I'm sitting here counting the days until book number two is hatched and sitting on the bookshelves. (Seems I'll be waiting until summer.)

This book is about a young woman taken by a young man, who was supposed to turn her over to someone else. But for some reason, does not. 

What ensues is the two living together in a remote cabin, broken into of course, barely tolerating the other. Until...

I'm not telling you anymore. But if you pick up this book, and get right down to the end and those twisty turning things happen that smack you up side of the head, don't say I didn't warn you. 

Don't you dare read the end first!

For December, Kirby has chosen Mister Owita's Guide To Gardening: How I Learned The Unexpected Joy Of A Green Thumb And An Open Heart

Being an avid gardener, I must see what Mr. Owita has to say. For I learned the unexpected joy of a green thumb many years ago. And it has not abated. 

Please join us in reading this book and let us know in the comments at the end of December what you thought of it. I always love a book discussion!


  1. Oh my....Sounds like a good thriller!

  2. Brenda, you have truly pulled me in with your snippets!! It's now on my Amazon wish list!
    Oh, by the way, did you sign up as an affiliate so that when you mention the books, camera or anything you get financial credit? I hope so, because I'd like to help you in the future with my purchases.

  3. Your right, they all say the same things on the back of the book, so it can be hard to choose. When I find one that I didn't see the end coming, I end up thinking it's a very good book. I usually have them figured out and love it when they surprise me. I'll try the Good Girl. The Lincoln Rhyme novels by Jeffery Deaver are good page turners with good twists often.

  4. I made a note about this book when you first mentioned it, so I'm glad to hear it was a winner! And another coming out?!? I better pick it up and get busy reading! Thanks, Brenda!

  5. It was such a great choice--thanks!!

  6. i agree!!!! it was twisty and turny!!!! loved it!


I always enjoy reading your comments and having you join the conversation here at Cozy Little House. It is like having a gathering of friends sitting in my cozy apartment. Enjoying coffee and dessert, chatting and having a good time.

Please be kind with your comments. We all need kindness in this world. That's not to say you can't state your opinion! Everyone should be able to state their own opinion in a kind and thoughtful manner.

I appreciate each and every one of you!
