Review for Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison

Good Girls Lie: A Novel by  J.T. Ellison 

publication: December 30th 2019 by MIRA
Goode girls don’t lie…

Perched atop a hill in the tiny town of Marchburg, Virginia, The Goode School is a prestigious prep school known as a Silent Ivy. The boarding school of choice for daughters of the rich and influential, it accepts only the best and the brightest. 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. But a stranger has come to Goode, and this ivy has turned poisonous.

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.

But look closely…because there are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened.

J.T. Ellison’s pulse-pounding new novel examines the tenuous bonds of friendship, the power of lies and the desperate lengths people will go to to protect their secrets. 

My Thoughts…

I am a fan of J.T. Ellison, reading her books as soon as they come out.   Good Girls Don’t Lie is my favorite so far.    I started the book and finished the book within 24 hours and was sad that it was over but I loved each and every word of the book!    It is at the top of my favorites of 2019. 

The story is of a girl who has lost both her parents and is now in the US at an all-girls elite boarding school.   She is watching her step, keeping her story to herself, and just trying to get the education she really wants.    But as with any school, there is a set of unwritten rules that she has to be careful of.   I loved how real it was watching her maneuver the hierarchy of the student population, knowing which students are really her friends and which she should watch out for.   And then, of course, there is the secret she must keep.     Gossip spreads, odd events start happening, and I knew the twists and turns were just starting.
J.T. Ellison is phenomenal as a thriller author.    She is a must-read and a guaranteed winner with each book.    The stories are all unique and not easy to forget.    Each time I pick up one of her books I wonder what wonderful, twisted story I will get pulled into this time and am never disappointed with where she takes me.
