Good Girls

Good Girls by Glen Hirshberg digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

Three-time International Horror Guild and Shirley Jackson Award Winner Glen Hirshberg brings his flair for the grim, grisly, and emotionally harrowing to Good Girls, the standalone sequel to Motherless Child.

Still in college, Rebecca is the “responsible one.” She keeps her friends from getting too crazy—though Human Curling is kind of out there. She’s a safety valve for Joel, her foster father, and helps out at Halfmoon House, which he runs with his wife, Amanda—Rebecca’s foster mother, who makes sure her children able to protect themselves. To take care of themselves.

Mostly Rebecca takes care of everyone else. She works at the university’s crisis center, doing whatever she can to help the troubled souls who call the hotline. Until the night he calls.

Jess has lost so much: her job, her home…her daughter Natalie, no longer human thanks to the creature who called himself the Whistler. She tried desperately to save Natalie, but in the end, Jess herself pulled the trigger and killed her child.

Deep in mourning, Jess flees, with the remnants of her family: the man she loved, seriously injured; her infant grandson, somehow still innocent and pure. And Sophie.

Natalie’s best friend, Jess’s almost-daughter, and a mother herself, though her son is dead. Sophie’s alive but not alive—half-mad, half vampire, half a person…and Jess’s responsibility.

The Whistler is hunting Jess. She killed his Mother…and Natalie, who was his “destiny.” But he’s not so single-minded that he can’t have a little fun along the way, take what he needs from Rebecca’s friends and family…take Rebecca for his own….

Fates collide in a small town where fear and love are two sides of the same coin and life and death lie far too close together.

“Author Glen Hirshberg isn't as bad as some authors that just assume you've read the books in order and make no attempt to fill in the blanks. Why should they? It's better for their bank accounts if you buy the books and get the answers yourself. I confess to buying the first novel The Motherless Child on Amazon after reading Good Girls. It's mainly because I'm kind of OCD about knowing everything in a series. It's a problem, it's the reason I've seen every Children of the Corn movie. Help! Good Girls picks up almost directly after the ending of https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18490690.Motherless_Child . A woman named Jess is forced to kill her daughter, Natalie, who has been turned into a vampire, and goes on the run with her infant grandson. She reluctantly cares for Sophie, who was Natalie's best friend before she was turned and is the only link to the Whistler, the vampire who caused all her heartache. This is probably my favorite part of the novel. Hirshberg does a wonderful job of building up suspense, and I honestly had no idea what could happen next.
