Tess Diamond delves into the past with this heartfelt romantic suspense. Abigail Winthrop and Special Agent Paul Harrison have known each other their entire lives so it gives them a unique relationship. Add in the fact they have been friends for that long and have a shared tragedy in their past, and you have an awesome book. Both are strong minded and determined and have an openness with each other that is refreshing. But even more enjoyable than witnessing their openness with one another is seeing them navigate their inner feelings while dealing with bringing the past to the forefront. Adding into the mix the fact they are hunting for an active serial killer life becomes much more than intense as the past and the future collide. I enjoyed the closeness of the characters in "Be a Good Girl", how I felt a part of the family and a genuine connection between Paul and his sisters and how they so quickly accepted his coworker into their circle. I was hooked by the intelligent suspense in the story and how clues and information were revealed. If you like your suspense stories to be smartly written and intricately told this is a romance for you.
