I can't remember the last time I've felt such contempt for such a poorly written piece of drivel.
Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Yvonne from Great read! I received this as a gift for Christmas. I have to say that from the synopsis I probably would have left this one at the store had I been shopping for myself. However, I finally read it recently.
It was not at all what I was expecting, and just my kind of story. I'm so glad my daughter thought I'd enjoy it - otherwise I probably would have missed out on this one. Loved the way the story unfolded from different points of view. Highly recommend!
One of the best story-line I've come across. It has a well written climax and keeps you indulged in the book till the very end.
Date published: Rated 4 out of 5 by Kimberly from Good Read I thought this book has a good story line and the relationships between the characters were interesting and different. The ending was very surprising. I really enjoyed this book. What a load of waffle!
The author seems more interested in showing off her knowledge of science than giving us an actual plot line! Not found one character who is believable, much less likeable yet!

Romy is "The Good Girl" - never having given her parents a moment of worry, the one they rely on to be self sufficient, ever practical and not really requiring much parenting - leaving them to focus on their other children who are not quite so easy and themselves as they go through a marriage crisis. Romy however is about to take a wrong step, forcing everyone to reconsider their own actions and attitudes. There are several layers to the story, all of which are compelling - told in alternate parts by Ailsa and Romy, we start with the news that Romy is in trouble then find out what has led up to it.
Fiona Neill takes an unrelenting look at social media and how it can explode a life, at the same time she gives us a very authentic family drama with some complex interpersonal relationships. Some great characters in here, I imagine everyone will relate to someone and as the story ebbs and flows and external influences take their toll on Romy during her delicate coming of age, it will completely grip you. Dad Harry was a great character, being a scientist there is a lot of pretty cool information on the brain, how it works, especially when it comes to teenage thought processes - it was an interesting thread running through the narrative that gave it a solid background.
Youngest son Ben was gorgeous - I totally fell in love with him, Luke the elder brother was brilliantly normal in many ways and wait until you meet the neighbours!
Overall I thought this was a terrific read - some important issues raised for sure, entertaining in both an informative and often very emotional way, it had a lovely depth to it, great writing, great storytelling and overall one that I would definitely recommend.
Happy Reading Folks! View 1 comment. Dec 05, Laura rated it it was ok Shelves: It loathes me to say when I don't enjoy a book, because I pick my reads very carefully.
I look at the cover, the synopsis and the reviews before I make my mind up. With a fair readers rating, and a cover reminiscent of Gone Girl, I thought this would be just my cup of tea.
Unfortunately, I was bored almost straight away.

The entire story is odd. I didn't connect with the characters, nor did I particularly care for them. There didn't seem to be much action, just a lot of talking. The cover makes b It loathes me to say when I don't enjoy a book, because I pick my reads very carefully. The cover makes bold statements based on media reviews - usually a good sign. I just didn't see it. When I began the book I thought, okay, its just a slow burner and it will pick up soon.
And it just never did. I was so disappointed. Not a complete disappointment, there are some parts just interesting enough to hold my attention. I was also mildly irritated by some of the characters names - what kind of name is Loveday, anyway? It felt like the author was trying too hard to be 'out there'. Unless someone could guarantee me another book of hers was an absolute must-read, I wouldn't be tempted to read any of her other novels. I recieved an ARC and I have to agree with the other reviewer.
It wasn't just too much preamble, as there was just general rambling. I was so disappointed cause this was a great topic that I would love to read about its one that is also pretty new and I tried to like it but the characters, the storyline It was hard for me to read through this and finish, and I found myself having to pick it up and put it down. I wish I could have liked this, I'm sorry I couldn't. Jan 21, A. Waines rated it it was amazing.
It has the same title as the excellent psychological thriller by Mary Kubica, so expectations were high. In particular, due to the way the characters and dialogue come to life making the reader feel like they are standing in the same room. The story is about the changing dynamics within two families who end up as neighbours, with drama involving the youngest boy, right through to his going-off-the-rails grandfather.
The individual characters and their traits are portrayed in beautiful detail and we are led through a whole whirlwind of emotions: Though this took a little while to 'get', because I was expecting a slightly different type of book anticipated a psych thriller, got a family drama with an interesting plot I did end up quite enjoying it.

This is a story of a mother and what happens when a pornographic video of her teenage daughter makes it into the public arena from a the phone of her boyfriend - but in truth it is more complex and layered than that, with some powerfully written points of view.

Thank God, I finally let go off this book to write this review informing you to go download the hell out of it!
Fantastic Storyline. I am so ashamed I have never read anything by Fiona Neill. But this book is something else. She has everything together. Until the new neighbours move in.
And her family would never be the same again. But unknowingly, she finds the new neighbours were just a catalyst for what was already bound to happen. Amazing storyline.
I also wondered how long Fiona Neill took to cram all that stuff into penning this insightful novel—I imagined her editors persistently emailing her for her first 10, Brilliant information on neuroscience, slut-shaming and the woes of the internet age.
In fact, all the characters! This book is suspenseful! I read four hundred pages in a day! So many OMG-moments at one point I rolled my eyes at the ceiling wondering when Fiona Neill would keep surprising the hell out of me! You read loads of titles about family secrets, but I assure you, they do not come as close!
A star! I recommend this book to anyone who wants a title that would keep them on their toes this summer!
Anyone who can handle a little more than enough suspense should go get this title! Anyone who wants a book part insightful, part subversive, thoroughly entertaining must run to the bookshops now with the title of this book on their lips—The Good Girl by Fiona Neill —the good writer! There was enough going on for me to keep turning the pages doggedly into the small hours. He loved his job as a lecturer in London — so why did he leave it to relocate to Norfolk with his wife for her new job?
Romy is instantly drawn to Jay, the youngest of the two brothers. Neill has a fine understanding of families and the different dynamics within them, and this is one reason why the book is such a pageturner.
Ocean Heights. The Pastures. Sunshine Dreams. This is a compelling read, and I can easily see it being one of the big hits for late holidays. I rarely get through a book so quickly, so that speaks for itself. Recommended for fans of: I think in a way this is what Fiona Neill is simply saying in her new book The Good Girl is that sex tapes can go viral with one click and that shatters the whole family's life.
We often read in the newspapers that famous stars that have made sex tapes with their partner get leaked on to the big wide net and with coverage of the sex tape in the newspaper.

It is often the fact that when the famous girlfriend or wife made the sex tape with her boyfriend or husband, when they split up the ex for spite will upload the sex tape onto the web for all to see just to upset their ex girl friend or wife, which sadly effects the ex girl friend or the ex wifes privacy.
In The Good Girl Matt Harvey, the new head of Biology, confiscated a mobile phone from a pupil as he is watching a seventeen-year-old school girl kissing a boy with the girl fumbling for the boy's zip. They end up making an indescent sex tape that has gone viral, it is every where on porn sites and social media. The question is why did they both make this sexual video together? There are lots of secrets hidden in every corner with two families that are slowly torn apart by what has happened and with the parents own secrets.
The Good Girl
Nov 19, Jamie rated it liked it. I've never read the word dopamine so many times in a novel. The two go into hiding, hoping they can steer clear of law enforcement and those who originally paid Colin to abduct Mia. At first, their relationship is built on dominance and fear, as Colin must threaten Mia to get her to stay with him.
But eventually, Mia realizes there is far more to Colin than meets the eye, that he is vulnerable and emotionally needy, and Colin realizes that Mia isn't the spoiled little rich girl he assumed she was when he was hired to abduct her. The Good Girl shifts perspective between Colin, Eve, and Gabe Hoffman, the police detective investigating Mia's disappearance, and it shifts from the events leading up to and through her abduction to the aftermath.
Gabe is determined to find out what happened to Mia, despite constant resistance from her father, and Eve is wracked with guilt that she wasn't the mother she knew she could be, and is desperate for one more chance.
This is one of those books that makes you suspect everyone isn't what they seem to be.That would have been a direct way to fix him without hurting anyone else. Or two. I liked it, I didn't love it. I found Ailsa's sister Rachel and her father Adam pointless characters to fill in the lack of storyline. Also, can anyone say Stockholm Syndrome?
