Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica

Like Mary Kubica’s previous novel, The Good Girl, I also enjoyed this story. It included quite a bit of psychological suspense and was a bit crazy at times with unreliable narrators. The story switched back and forth between a homeless young girl called Willow with a baby she called Ruby, Heidi, and Chris. Heidi, another main character sees the girl and the baby in the rain & cold on the way to work and begins to feel sorry and want to help. However, has Heidi, the seemingly selfless mother of a 12 year old and faithful wife of financially successful Chris, bit off a bit more than she can chew with this project? The story is heartbreaking at times as the readers finds out all that both “Willow” and Heidi have dealt with in the past. I couldn’t put it down because I wanted to know what would happen to all of the characters. Mary Kubica does a great job of keeping the story moving at a quick pace. This would be a great read for fans of Gone Girl and/or The Girl on the Train.

The Good Girl by Mary Kubica


This book was so good that I could not put it down. I was reading it while feeding my 1 year old baby food with the other hand! The surprise ending really throws the reader for a loop, but in a good way. This is one of the best fast-paced mysteries that I have read in a while. Not your average kidnapping novel, that’s for sure! I highly recommend it.
