Such a Good Girl
by Willow Rose
Published June 23rd 2021 by Buoy Media
FBI-profiler Eva Rae Thomas faces a devious plan in bestselling author Willow Rose’s blood-rushing thriller of murder and revenge.
A girl falls from the penthouse floor of an apartment in Washington, D.C.
Media Mogul Richard Wanton owns the apartment and is seen standing on the balcony when the girl falls.
He is accused of killing her, but the FBI is struggling to find enough solid evidence to convict him.
They have a witness, someone who was in the apartment when it happened, but she doesn’t want to talk to them.
She’ll only speak to one person, ex-FBI profiler Eva Rae Thomas. The problem is, Eva Rae Thomas has no interest in talking to her.
As a matter of fact, she’d rather see this woman dead than have to face her.
But Eva Rae Thomas isn’t someone who can leave a case alone, especially not when she starts to ask questions and things aren’t adding up.
As she digs in deeper—with the entire world watching—she soon finds herself in too deep and realizes she can’t trust anyone’s motives.
But by then, it is too late, and the killer is already tracking her down.
This is the ninth book in the Eva Rae Thomas mystery series by Willow Rose.
The books by Willow Rose are always very complex. And this book is no different. This story is inspired by Willow Rose’s own life experience and that makes the story all the more compelling and real.
Eva Rae is called in to help with a cases of a gal who was pushed off the balcony of a news director’s room and falls to her death. She is brought there under suspicious circumstances and when she discovers that she is there to interview her ex-husband’s wife, the one he left her for, she high tails it back to her hometown. Kimmie was in the room when the girl was pushed off the balcony and Eva Rae is the only person she will talk to.
There is always a parallel story running alongside the main story and I try and figure out how it applies to the now timeline and am always surprised by what Willow Rose manages to pull out of her hat and shock us every time.
This secondary story features a news reporter who is just an intern trying to make her big break into journalism. However, there is a member of the management team who has his eye on this intern and forces her into a sick relationship of secret meetings in the bathroom and invitations to parties where suspiciously no one else shows up for. This management team member is the same news director whom Eva Rae is investigating in the current timeline.
This book has a lot of threads and things going on that could lead you down a multitude of rabbit holes. But that is what Willow Rose does so well. Her plotting is excellent.
Such a good story and a great storyteller. Very impressed with this author’s work. I have enjoyed each story she has purposefully crafted to perfection.
If you love a mystery, definitely check this one out. Great new must read book great series too!
