THE SEA of LOST GIRLS by Carol Goodman – Spotlight & Giveaway


Since we’re still enjoying thrillers, here’s a new one for you by Carol Goodman. THE SEA of LOST GIRLS (WilliamMorrow) is a twisty, harrowing story set at a prestigious prep school in which one woman’s carefully hidden past might destroy her future.

Tess has worked hard to keep her past buried, where it belongs. Now she’s the wife to a respected professor at an elite boarding school, where she also teaches. Her seventeen-year-old son, Rudy, whose dark moods and complicated behavior she’s long worried about, seems to be thriving: he has a lead role in the school play and a smart and ambitious girlfriend. Tess tries not to think about the mistakes she made eighteen years ago, and mostly, she succeeds.

And then one more morning she gets a text at 2:50 AM: it’s Rudy, asking for help. When Tess picks him up she finds him drenched and shivering, with a dark stain on his sweatshirt. Four hours later, Tess gets a phone call from the Haywood school headmistress: Lila Zeller, Rudy’s girlfriend, has been found dead on the beach, not far from where Tess found Rudy just hours before.

As the investigation into Lila’s death escalates, Tess finds her family attacked on all sides. What first seemed like a tragic accidental death is turning into something far more sinister, and not only is Tess’s son a suspect but her husband is a person of interest too. But Lila’s death isn’t the first blemish on Haywood’s record, and the more Tess learns about Haywood’s fabled history, the more she realizes that not all skeletons will stay safely locked in the closet.

  1. Just finished Good Girls Lie by JT Ellison, also set in a boarding school. It was twisted and wonderful!


  2. I read The Silent Patient a while ago. It was pretty good. Recently I read The Old Success by Martha Grimes


  3. Recently finished THE LAST FLIGHT by Julie Clark. It had perfectly-paced suspense and lots of twists!


  4. Thanks for the chance during this uncertain time! I just finished A Stranger on the Beach by Michele Campbell. It was a fun entertaining read, it was like reading a Lifetime movie, so it was a good time out of mind read! Take care!


  5. I read You Are Not Alone by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. After a slow start it was awesome.


  6. I finished The Silent Patient and the ending through me for a loop. I had to reread the ending several times.


  7. I haven’t read a thriller in quite a while but this book sounds very interesting and I would love to win it!


  8. I’m listening to Long Bright River on audio right now. I thought it would be more of a thriller, but it’s actually pretty slow moving.


  9. The last thriller I read was An Anonymous Girl.

    This second novel by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen is even better than their first. AN ANONYMOUS GIRL is can’t-put-it-down good.


  10. I recently read an ARC of Rory Power’s Burn Our Bodies Down. It had me hooked two paragraphs in. Her writing is the kind of thrillers I crave to read.
