I’m thrilled to be part of the Harlequin Blog Tour: Mystery/Thriller 2020. The selection of books was top-notch. Some of my favorite books for the coming year are on this list! Up first is Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison
Goode girls don’t lie…
The Goode School is considered the Ivy League prep school known as the Silent Ivy. 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. 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. But 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.
Look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.
It’s been a while since I’ve read one of Ellison’s book and I forgot how much I like her writing as well as her ability to build suspense. There is a reason why she is such a successful writer in the genre. Good Girls Lie is a tautly written tale of girls, rich elitist girls, sequestered away at a remote boarding school. When new “Ash” is admitted, she appears to be the perfect “Goode Girl.” She is tall, tanned, has perfect hair and the smile of an innocent but she also has a lifetime full of secrets. Her smile is practiced and her motives are impure but is it she who drove a fellow student to commit suicide or are there more secrets to reveal. The answers to these questions are what make this heart-pounding thriller so good!
Good Girls Lie is set to be published December 30 and should be on every suspense lovers 2020 TBR. You can find the book at the following book sellers:
