Review: The Good Girl By: Mary Kubica

The Good GirlThe Good Girl by Mary Kubica
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mia Dennett is missing, rather, she has been taken. She is the victim of an elaborate ransom plan to effect her father, the Honorable Judge Dennett. Through different eyes and flashes of before she was found and after, the story unfolds. Gabe, the detective assigned to the case and where the people involved become very personal, the line he once held he now crosses. Eve, Mia's mother, who knows in her gut and as she crumbles with each passing week, she becomes stronger within herself. Colin, the kidnapper, who has his own story and history, by flipping the script on those that ordered the kidnapping has now put both their lives in danger, but believes he has saved hers. It isn't until the very end that we finally hear Mia's voice.
The mystery of what happened in the cabin in the woods, what happened to Mia - who now calls herself Chloe, and all the lives that changed over one girls disappearance.
Sometimes I felt a bit frustrated with the before and after with it coming from so many voices, bouncing from Eve before to Gabe after and Colin before to Eve after, but after a while it began to paint the picture the author wanted.
