Book Spotlight: The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Last Spring, at BEA, I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Kubica and picking up her debut novel, The Good Girl. So of course, I was ecstatic when I heard it was one of the She Reads 'Books of Winter' selections. I read it over the summer and found it to be one of those books that I just couldn't stop thinking about. I've since recommended it to everyone I know! You can read my thoughts of the book here.  Today the book is being released in paperback.

Title: The Good Girl   
Author: Mary Kubica          
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA  

"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, 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.

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….

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica is one of the She Reads "Books of Winter" reading selection picks.
