Goodreads Monday- She’s Been Discovered But Can’t Be Found…

Recently I stumbled upon an imprint of Simon and Schuster called Scribner. I spoke about a title that I will be reviewing before its publication at the end of January called Follow to the Ground by Susan Rainsford (there is a link to it in this post). Scribner has done it again! Quite a few gems in this boutique imprint, including one very well known author. Check them out! And in the meantime... here is this week's Goodread's Monday...

Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners.  All you have to do is show off a book from your TBR that you’re looking forward to reading.


This week’s choice comes after discovering a boutique imprint of Simon and Schuster that is home to Stephen King: Scribner. I wrote about another title that I gratefully acquired from them, and am dead excited to review before its publication at the end of January, Follow Me to the Ground by Sue Rainsford. I found this week’s Goodreads Monday choice in quite the backward’s manner.

As I’ve now set-up a search for Scribner, specifically, on Edelweiss (I suggest everyone do the same), I stumbled on its sequel, When She Was Good, first. That caused me to back track and find the first installment of the Cyrus Haven Series, Good Girl, Bad Girl. As always, all information is below!


Good Girl, Bad Girl by Michael Robotham (Cyrus Haven #1)

Publisher: Scribner

Release Date:  July 23rd, 2019

Genre:  Adult Fiction Mystery, Thriller, Suspense

Synopsis: A girl is discovered hiding in a secret room in the aftermath of a terrible crime. Half-starved and filthy, she won’t tell anyone her name, or her age, or where she came from. Maybe she is twelve, maybe fifteen. She doesn’t appear in any missing persons file, and her DNA can’t be matched to an identity. Six years later, still unidentified, she is living in a secure children’s home with a new name, Evie Cormac. When she initiates a court case demanding the right to be released as an adult, forensic psychologist Cyrus Haven must determine if Evie is ready to go free. But she is unlike anyone he’s ever met—fascinating and dangerous in equal measure. Evie knows when someone is lying, and no one around her is telling the truth.

Meanwhile, Cyrus is called in to investigate the shocking murder of a high school figure-skating champion, Jodie Sheehan, who dies on a lonely footpath close to her home. Pretty and popular, Jodie is portrayed by everyone as the ultimate girl-next-door, but as Cyrus peels back the layers, a secret life emerges—one that Evie Cormac, the girl with no past, knows something about. A man haunted by his own tragic history, Cyrus is caught between the two cases—one girl who needs saving and another who needs justice. What price will he pay for the truth?
