Many people have said that The Good Girl by Mary Kubica is the next Gone Girl. I don't agree with that statement. Though The Good Girl has many redeeming qualities, I wouldn't say that I absolutely loved this book. I found it to be boring and slow at times, and it had a very basic story line. If you are looking for something with more of a predictable ending this is the book for you. I think it is a good book to pick up and read while at the beach or on vacation as it is an easy read but if you are expecting a fantastic novel, this is not the book for you. I would give this novel a solid 3 out of 5 stars. Yeah this book at some redeeming qualities but I wouldn't read this book again unless I was really bored. 

GoodReads Synopsis: 

One night, Mia Dennett enters a bar to meet her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But when he doesn't show, she unwisely leaves with an enigmatic stranger. At first Colin Thatcher seems like a safe one-night stand. But following Colin home will turn out to be the worst mistake of Mia's life. 

When Colin decides to hid Mia in a secluded cabin in rural Minnesota instead of delivering her to his employers, Mia's mother, Eve, and detective Gabe Hoffman will stop at nothing to find them. But no one could have predicted the emotional entanglements that eventually cause this family's world to shatter. 

Spoiler-Alert Review: 

The synopsis/back of the book make it sound like Eve helped Gabe find Mia which really isn't true. She just sat at home going through pictures, pining for Mia's return while Gabe did all the work. Also, having Mia pregnant really didn't add anything to the story line of the book and they just left that part of the story off kind of incomplete at the end. So, okay now she is pregnant with her captors baby which she basically paid to kidnap her but then he foiled the plan by saving her. Honestly, if I was Mia and I paid someone to kidnap me to blackmail my dad I would be pissed about Colin "saving" me. However, she really didn't show any signs of being pissed about Colin taking her.
