The Good Girl Review
















My Thoughts:

Every time I think Christy Barritt has written the best book ever I have to change my mind with the release of the newest book.  This book is my favorite of all her books I have read.  I think I related to this book, as a pk myself, and always being called a goody-goody.  I could relate to those feelings that Tara felt as she tried to find the real Tara, not the one everyone expected her to be.  A great story! OH and I was fooled I was sure I knew who was behind all the trouble in the book, and I was wrong.  LOVED that!  I like a book that keeps me guessing till the last pages.  Christy Barritt is a talented author, who writes a great mystery!  I am not positive I have the correct adjectives to use to describe how much I enjoy her books, so I will fall back on my normal adjectives.  LOVED it, great book, awesome story, believable characters that I easily related to.  Most definitely a five star review!  This book was     provided for review purposes only, no payment was received for this review.


About the Book:
What's a good girl to do when life goes bad?

Tara Lancaster can sing Amazing Grace in three harmonies, two languages, and interpret it for the hearing impaired. She can list the Bible canon backward, forward, and alphabetized. And the only time she ever missed church was at seventeen because she had pneumonia and her mom made her stay home.

But when her life shatters around her and her reputation is left in ruins, Tara decides escape is the only option. She flees halfway across the country to dog-sit, but the quiet anonymity she needs isn't waiting in her sister's house. Instead she finds a knife with a threatening message, a fame-hungry friend, a too-hunky neighbor, and evidence of...a ghost?

Following all the rules has gotten her nowhere. And nothing she learned in Sunday School can tell her where to go from there.

Christy Barritt is an author, freelance writer and speaker who lives in Virginia. She's married to her Prince Charming, a man who thinks she's hilarious--but only when she's not trying to be. Christy's a self-proclaimed klutz, an avid music lover who's known for spontaneously bursting into song, and a road trip aficionado. She's only won one contest in her life--and her prize was kissing a pig (okay, okay... actually she did win the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Suspense and Mystery for her book Suspicious Minds also). Her current claim to fame is showing off her mother, who looks just like former First Lady Barbara Bush. When she's not working or spending time with her family, she enjoys singing, playing the guitar, and exploring small, unsuspecting towns where people have no idea how accident prone she is. For more information, visit her website at: www.christybarritt.com
