  • Thriller

    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.

  • A thrilling suspense

    Good Girls Lie by J.T. Ellison is a riveting novel of suspense. The Good School is a prestigious prep for young ladies that resides in Marchburg, Virginia. This boarding school is for the intelligent daughters of the rich and powerful. They will receive a superior education that will get them into an Ivy league school and prepare them for a brilliant and influential future. But not everything is at it seems at this school. A new student arrives from Oxford, England who causes quite a stir. One student ends up dead and the truth must be uncovered. J.T. Ellison’s writing drew me into this engaging story. I enjoyed the author’s descriptive writing which allowed me to visualize the scenes. Virginia sounded beautiful in the fall. I thought the characters were thought out and developed. There are alternate points-of-view which I liked (Ash, Becca Curtis, and Dean Westhaven for example). It allows readers to view the events from different perspectives plus it keeps the tension up. Details are revealed a little at a time to keep readers guessing. Good Girls Lie is packed with secrets and deceptions. I kept trying to guess what is true and what is false. I just loved the fabulous twist. I thought the creepy aspects enhanced the story. There is a great ending where all the loose ends are wrapped up. Good Girls Lie has tradition, secret societies, hazing, deceits, clandestine relationships, jealousy and murder. As you can tell, I enjoyed reading this thrilling suspense tale. Good Girls Lie is a book that will keep you riveted until you finish the very last word.

  • Full Of Tension!

    This psychological thriller by J. T. Ellison is not short on surprises, as well as having more than its fair share of suspense and tension! In Good Girls Lie, my second foray into the depths of J. T. Ellison’s explosive writing, the author uses an effective style of storytelling to unveil the narrative. Told from multiple viewpoints and with a whirlwind speed, pivotal anecdotes about the leading characters are revealed. The narrative delves into the psyche of Ash Carr, who the reader learns, is a tortured young woman having witnessed the death of both of her parents and is now on a scholarship at the elite Goode Academy where each girl is almost certainly guaranteed a place. Set in Marchburg, Virginia, secret societies exist enabling the girls to bond, though what lies beneath the surface is a nightmare of bullying as the hierarchy of students is clear from the outset. Dean Ford Julianne Westhaven turns a blind eye as she believes she is keeping old traditions alive. Ghost stories of murders, eerie passageways, locked hallways, and a deadly staircase all have their place, giving the school a really creepy vibe. Good Girls Lie will delight if you like your thrillers menacing and fast-paced. This was a fabulous, dramatic and twisty story, and I can’t wait to see what J. T. Ellison does next! Thanks to NetGalley, Harlequin - MIRA and the author, J. T. Ellison for the complimentary copy. This is my honest and totally voluntary review.

  • Highly Suspenseful Psychological Thriller

    The Goode School is an exclusive all - girls school. Only 50 selected each year, the students selected are among the most gifted, intelligent, and generally come from wealthy, prominent families. These students are prepped to become Ivy Leaguers. 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. There are truths and there are lies, and then there is everything that really happened. Be warned ... not everyone is who they say they are .... and not everyone is a Goode Girl. This is an extraordinary psychological thriller full of suspense. The story starts with a young woman hanging in front of the school ... and this isn't the first suicide death. Or are they suicides? The story is told in different voices, blurring the lines between what's true ... and what's not. The characters are finely drawn, some are unique, some are likeable, some are flawed, but they are all unforgettable. Highly suspenseful, the action starts on the very first page and doesn't let up until the very last word of the very last sentence. Many thanks to the author / Harlequin-Mira / Netgalley for the digital copy of this fast paced thriller. Read and reviewed voluntarily, opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

  • Finally

    I love the Taylor Jackson and Sam Owens series by this author but the last few books have not been my cup of tea. This book takes me back to why I love JT Ellison books. All girl school for the very rich. You can see where this is going. Backstabbing,hazing, bullying,girl clicks and murder. There is a creepy Gothic feel to the whole book. Something seems of about Ash from the beginning. Her parents are both dead.She does not want to fit in. The first part of the book seems kind of slow but the second part takes off like wildfire. It’s a race to the finish and oh boy what a finish. I did not see that coming at all.
