      Twenty years after a baby is stolen from her push-chair, a woman is murdered in a care home. The two crimes are somehow linked, and a good bad girl may be the key to discovering the truth. Edith may have been tricked into a nursing home, but at eighty-years-young, she’s planning her escape. Patience works there, cleaning up mess and bonding with Edith, a kindred spirit. But Patience is lying to Edith about almost everything. Edith’s own daughter, Clio, won’t speak to her. And someone new is about to knock on Clio’s door . . . and their intentions aren’t good. With every reason to distrust each other, the women must solve a mystery with three suspects, two murders, and one victim. If they do, they might just find out what happened to the baby who disappeared, the mother who lost her, and the connections that bind them.

      The Queen of Twists, bestselling author of Daisy Darker and Rock Paper Scissors Alice Feeney, returns with another gripping mystery filled with drama and her trademark surprises in Good Bad Girl.

      Alice Feeney's "Good Bad Girl" is a gripping suspense novel filled with intricate storylines, sharp writing, and unexpected plot twists. While it didn't quite reach the level of brilliance seen in "Daisy Darker" for me, it remains a compelling read.

      “There is always a reason why people behave the way that they do. Sometimes bad people are just sad people in disguise.”

      In this mystery drama, Feeney excels at delivering mind-bending surprises that keep readers on their toes. The narrative is full of shocking revelations and twists that will leave you guessing until the end.

      “Maybe all villains are the heroes of their own stories.”

      The author's craftsmanship shines through in the purposeful use of coincidences and the razor-sharp wit displayed in her writing. Every sentence serves a meaningful purpose, contributing to the overall suspense of the story.

      “People always have choices, they just pretend not to in order to feel better about making bad ones.”

      Central to the narrative are the interconnected female characters whose lives intertwine in surprising ways. Feeney explores their psyches, uncovering their vulnerabilities and hidden secrets.

      “When someone you love becomes someone you can’t, it is the very worst kind of heartbreak.”

      While the multiple POVs and timelines may require patience to navigate, they ultimately add layers of complexity and suspense to the story. The short, tension-building chapters keep the pacing tight, and the reader engaged.

      “People spend too long adjusting to the light instead of the dark, it’s why they are so unprepared when bad things happen to them.”

      Feeney's meticulous attention to detail is evident throughout the novel, with seemingly insignificant clues playing crucial roles in the plot's development. Rest assured, there are no loose ends left dangling as Feeney ties up all story threads neatly by the end.

      “The world is full of people who are good at being bad, and people who are bad at being good.”

      For readers who enjoyed "The Push" by Ashley Audrain, "Good Bad Girl" offers a similar exploration of motherhood, secrets, and psychological tension.

      “Everybody has a mother, but not everybody has a mother’s love.”

      Dive into this deceptive maze of a novel, embrace the unexpected twists, and appreciate Feeney's clever storytelling. Just remember to stay sharp and question everything you read.

      “A good book can be a light in the darkness. A good book can cure loneliness, change minds, or even change the world. A good book is nothing less than magic.”

      Alice Feeney is a New York Times million-copy bestselling author. Her books have been translated into over thirty languages, and have been optioned for major screen adaptations. Including her novel Rock Paper Scissors, which is being made into a TV series by the producer of The Crown. Alice was a BBC journalist for fifteen years, and now lives in Devon with her family. Good Bad Girl is her sixth novel.
