The Good Girl by: Christy Barritt
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.
"The Good Girl is at turns scary, funny, passionate and quirky...the perfect book to carry in your beach bag." ~ USA Today
I loved this book! Tara was like me in a lot of ways I was known as the smart goody two shoe church girl all through High School. It didn't really bother me and I was proud of it! I helped me relate to her character though. Christy Barritt is awesome with edge of your seat mysteries and although I have read all of her newer books this one was just as great as the others! She has a real talent for writing and for a great thriller l! As always her books rock and she stays in the top 3 of my favorite Authors!
