Publisher's Description

Tara Lancaster can sing "Amazing Grace" in three harmonies, two languages, and interpret it for the hearing impaired. She can list the Bible canon backward, forward, and alphabetized. And the only time she ever missed church was at seventeen because she had pneumonia-and her mom made her stay home. But when her life shatters around her and her reputation is left in ruins, Tara decides escape is the only option. She flees halfway across the country to dog-sit, but the quiet anonymity she needs isn't waiting in her sister's house. Instead she finds a knife with a threatening message, a fame-hungry friend, a too-hunky neighbor, and evidence of...a ghost? Following all the rules has gotten her nowhere. And nothing she learned in Sunday School can tell her where to go from there.

    This novel is different from Christy Barritts other mysteries and Tara Lancaster unlike her other heroines. Tara escapes her life that has fallen apart to care for her sisters dog while she travels overseas. Quirky characters people the Minnesota scene including what some think are ghosts. The house may or may not be haunted, but a former owner was murdered there and now someone seems to be trying to drive Tara out. She teams up with widowed neighbor, Cooper, and her sisters friend Candy to try to uncover what is actually going on and how to stop it, even if that means confronting a murderer. The occult involvement in the crime made me a bit uncomfortable, but it does not play a major role. Tara is determined to solve the case even at the risk to her own life. Along the way, this pastors daughter throws out her good girl rules since she feels far from God. In surprising contrast, Candys spiritual journey heads in the opposite direction. How will it all turn out for good for Tara and her cohorts? So many potential suspects make it hard to guess who is guilty. I received a copy from the author in exchange for a review.

    Every single Christy Barritt book I pick up is my now my favorite. Yep, it happens every time. So The Good Girl was no exception. I mean, what isn't attention-getting about a book titled The Good Girl?

    As a good girl myself, I LOVED this book! It seems like no matter how much you try to do the right thing and follow all the rules, life seriously throws you a curveball. And that's what happens to Tara in this story, she has the perfect life all set up and then poof it's gone. Toss in a guy next door, a zany friend with blue hair, a possible murder, AND a ghost, and you get one wild ride of a read. Christy Barritt has just the right blend of humor and suspense with a dash of romance tossed into the mix.

    I really couldn't help it, I picked up The Good Girl and nearly read it straight through to the end. I just HAD to know what would happen next, and Christy Barritt had plenty of surprises in store. I really enjoyed myself as I tried to figure out who did what and why, sometimes I was right and sometimes not.

    The Good Girl is a great mystery and an all-around great story. Christy Barritt really knows how to keep her readers engaged and entertained. You won't wanna miss Christy Barritt's trademark quirky characters and delightful spine-tingling suspense in The Good Girl.

    What can I say when I really, really, really love a book? The Good Girl by Christy Barritt is a hoot, it's a mystery, it's a romance.

    The Good Girl is written in first-person all from the point of view of main character, Tara Lancaster. She's moved to St. Paul, Minnesota to house-sit for her sister, Lana.

    Not an easy time for Tara, just getting over the mess in her own life, hoping no one will ever know about her past. She's struggling with her faith, and wonders if living like a good girl isn't all it's trumped up to be. Getting to know her sister's neighbor isn't easy either. The man appears to be married and has a little boy, and Tara finds Ben Cooper very attractive. Way too attractive.

    But the other thing that gets on Tara's frayed nerves is the fact that her sister's house is haunted. Lana had failed to mention that.

    The following quote from The Good Girl says it all for me.

    "Unrest sloshed in my chest as I walked toward my front door. Why was that man watching me? Why did it bother me that a woman was at Cooper's, especially since I'd just vowed to stay away from him? And was I really living here alone, or was a dead woman still lingering between these four walls?

    It was enough to give any girl a headache."

    Fantastic book. Different, funny, mysterious, a quick read because you don't want to put it down.

    I won "The Good Girl" in a contest that Christy Barritt was having and she mailed it to me. I read it while on summer vacation. I loved the quirky characters and the "less than perfect" main character, as well as the mystery. Sometimes we all struggle with our self esteem or what someone thinks of us, so it was great to read about Tara's struggles and how she overcame them. A good cozy mystery, with some inspiration and encouragement thrown in.
