It all starts with a promise from a stranger: We’ll take care of everything.
Holly Kendrick’s husband is dead. Holly saw it all. In one violent moment, a hit-and-run accident turns Holly’s life upside down. Then a fixer for the high-powered guilty party approaches Holly with an offer she is in no position to refuse. Holly and her daughter, Savannah, will want for nothing, beginning with a luxury dream house—all for the price of their silence. But when their sudden appearance in privileged Calabasas, California, piques the curiosity of neighbors, the price becomes greater than they imagined. Because Holly and Savannah aren’t the only ones in the neighborhood with something to hide.
Told from alternating points of view, Good as Dead draws together an unlikely group of people bound to one another by a crime, a cover-up, and compounding deceptions. As carefully constructed lives begin to crumble, how far will everyone be willing to go to bury the truth and protect the people they love? (Amazon)

The synopsis had promise for this book, but it didn’t live up to the synopsis for me. For Holly to have lost her husband and Savannah’s dad, they both seemed so money hungry.

Holly was used to living paycheck to paycheck before she lost her husband to a hit and run. she chose financial freedom and free money, instead of going out and finding justice for her husband. Moving to a higher class neighborhood and buying luxury items. Holly kept saying how she felt bad, but she wasn’t trying to find another way to make money either.

The book was short, but I found myself bored more often then not and it made the book seem so much longer. I wasn’t a fan.

My Rating:
