REVIEW: The Good Girls by Teresa Mummert


New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

My life was meticulously planned and I refused to deviate from that path. While my peers were partying, I prepared for the future. Then a tragic event destroyed everything and I learned that while I was looking ahead, I forgot to live in the moment.

Starting over seemed impossible until I met Cara McCarthy, who lived every day like it was her last. She opened my eyes to a world of chaos and disorder. I loved every minute of it. She was also dating Tristan Adams, one of the most gorgeous men I’d ever seen.

The three of us became inseparable. Our parents were oblivious and soon lines became blurred, feelings began to grow, and someone’s heart was going to get broken. I hoped it wasn’t mine.

Full-length stand alone novel.

My Thoughts

After reading the first two books in the Outlander series, this book was a welcomed change. It was actually my first same sex romance that I have read. But PLEASE... Do NOT let that turn you away from this WONDERFUL book!

The Good Girls by Teresa Mummert is so much more than a female/female romance. It is a beautiful coming of age story with a storyline that grabs you and characters that you invest your emotions in.

Cara and Ellie had me glued to this book. They are both such amazingly strong girls that have been through so much already in their lives. They are total opposites in personality, but each girl drew you to them and regardless of your own sexual orientation, you can relate to them both.

Overall, The Good Girls was a great book that kept me turning it's pages. Being told from both Ellie and Cara's points of view, we are drawn in to the minds of both main characters and I don't think the book would have the same impact on me if it was told in one POV. I highly recommend giving this book a read!

My Rating

Author Information

I was a Russian spy at the ripe age of thirteen, given my uncanny ability to tell if someone was lying ( I also read fortunes on the weekends). By sixteen I had become too much of a handful for the Lethal Intelligence Ensemble (L.I.E.). I was quickly exiled to the south of France where I worked with wayward elephants in the Circus of Roaming Animals and People (C.R.A.P.). I was able to make ends meet by selling my organs on the black market for pocket change and beer money. At the age of twenty three I decided to expand my horizons and become a blackjack dealer in Ireland. I loved the family atmosphere at Barney's Underground Liquor Lounge (B.U.L.L.). People couldn't resist the allure of Liquor up front and poker in the rear. Eventually I became tired of the rear and headed off to the United States to try my hand at tall tales. That is what brings us here today. If you have a moment I'd like to tell you a story.
