Good Girls Lie by J T Ellison
AD | book tour
Drama, intrigue, mystery and murder all set at an exclusive all girls boarding school. It seems that everyone at Goode has a secret, but the question is who is willing to kill to protect theirs.
Goode girls don’t lie…
Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. Its elite status, long-held traditions and honor code are ideal for preparing exceptional young women for brilliant futures at Ivy League universities and beyond.
But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.
In a world where appearances are everything, as long as students pretend to follow the rules, no one questions the cruelties of the secret societies or the dubious behavior of the privileged young women who expect to get away with murder.
When a popular student is found dead, the truth cannot be ignored. Rumors suggest she was struggling with a secret that drove her to suicide.
But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
GOOD GIRLS LIE – MY THOUGHTS
Parts of Good Girls Lie were fantastic, really special. It had all the ingredients for a great thriller. An isolated school, friendship and bullies, mystery and drama. Sadly though, aspects of the execution fell short.
A lot of the characters were weak and the storyline predictable. The pace also seemed to be disjointed. Some parts seemed to crawl through, dragging out every single detail. Others seemed to go so fast that I got whiplash. I loved the inclusion of a little diversity and some characters were really thought through and whole.
Moments of brilliance, but overall an okay read with an additional ending that felt rushed and didn’t need to be there. There was still enough in there though to make it worth picking up.
Good Girls Lie is available to buy on Amazon (affiliate link).
