Alice Feeney has done it again. Good Bad Girl is exactly the kind of page turner I’ve come to expect from Feeney. It’s a captivating story that seamlessly weaves together the past and present, drawing readers into a web of intrigue and heartwarming connections.
I listened to this one as an audiobook and thought it had great narration!
Twenty years after a baby is stolen from a stroller, Feeney crafts a tale that is as much about the enduring human spirit as it is about solving a decades-old mystery.
Edith, our spirited octogenarian protagonist, refuses to let age define her. Her determination to break free from the confines of a nursing home is both inspiring and relatable.
Patience, a caregiver at the nursing home, emerges as a complex character who keeps readers guessing. Her bond with Edith is heartwarming, and the layers of her character unfold beautifully throughout the story. The way Patience navigates a world filled with secrets and lies adds depth to the narrative.
The strained relationship between Edith and her daughter, Clio, adds a poignant layer to the story. Their journey towards reconciliation is touching and relatable, exploring the complexities of family dynamics with sensitivity. And it’s only one of the mother-daughter relationships that makes this book so compelling.
As the plot unfolds, a mysterious stranger knocks on Clio’s door, setting off a chain of events that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. Feeney masterfully constructs a web of suspense, with two murders, three suspects, and one victim, leaving us guessing until the very end.
Good Bad Girl is a page-turner that keeps you engaged from start to finish. It beautifully explores the themes of forgiveness, redemption, and the enduring bonds that connect us all.
A must-read for fans of heartwarming family sagas with a dash of suspense!
