A Book of the Week Review by Jocelyn
The Good Girl – Mary Kubica
I wanted SO badly to like this book – first time female novelist, edgy cover image, intriguing storyline….
Mia Dennett is missing. The daughter of a prominent Chicago judge, Mia has shunned the family tradition of law and is an art teacher at a local urban school. She lives alone in a little apartment and doesn’t see much of her family, father James, mother Eve, and hard-charging lawyer sis Grace. When Mia doesn’t show up for work one day, a concerned friend calls her mother and the case immediately becomes headline news. Where is Mia? She was supposed to meet her boyfriend at a local bar, but security cameras capture footage of her leaving with a completely different man. Now neither has been seen in weeks. Despite her father’s scoffing that she’s probably just run off, her mother Eve is obviously concerned and as time passes, grows ever more so.
