      This book introduces us to a new Detective – Grace Fisher and is set in the Colchester area. Grace is a detective with a past that she is trying to get away from and I did feel for part of the read that I was reading a sequel , because that past is only revealed to us in dribs and drabs and it takes a while for us to learn all her back story, which explains why she is in Colchester, starting a new job.Events start with a missing girl, soon followed by the discovery of another girl’s body. Wi [...]

      **Actual Rating 4.5 stars***Some top notch crime fiction from the pen of Isabelle Grey here,which just goes to show there is still a lot of life left in the police procedural drama stakes, all you need are some well drawn characters, a haunting yet intriguing mystery and an ability to draw the reader in and make them care about what is going on – all of which happens here with bells on.Grace joins the Major Investigation Team in Essex, having been unceremoniously dumped from her previous life [...]

      I loved Isabelle Grey books. But this one turned out to be quite slow for me, the pace was very tedious at times and I tried to make myself stay with it because I respect this author so much.For some reason it just didn't pull me in like the others she has written.Grace joins a team that are looking for Polly throughout this book. Shes missing, taken or ran off, no one quite knows and although there are many suspects, you never get to know for sure which one it could be. Grace is in disgrace for [...]

      I had an advance copy of the 3rd book in this series earlier this year, enjoyed it and decided to try an earlier one. This is the first book and feels a bit like it at times - the 3rd is better IMO. That said I do think Isabelle Grey deserves rather more recognition that she seems to have. I do like DI (although in this case DS) Grace Fisher as a character. She has an interesting background and certainly by book 3 is developing very nicely. There are other worthwhile characters in this book too. [...]

      This is my first book by Isabella Grey. I loved the writing itself, it flowed easily and I was looking forward to getting stuck in. Unfortunately, the plot was boring for me. Nothing much happened, and when it did there was no suspense. Despite this, I will read more from Isabelle. I liked Grace, the main character and I’m looking forward to hearing more about her, and her backgroundThanks goes to net galley for providing me with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

      For anyone who thinks that the good old police procedural has had its day, think again. Isabelle Grey has come up with a cracking new novel which is the first in a new series featuring Detective Sergeant Grace Fisher.Grace Fisher left her last posting in Maidstone after being driven out for grassing up a fellow officer, losing her job, home and husband in the process. Taking a demotion she joins the Major Investigation Team in Essex and starts on the day a student is reported as missing followin [...]

      5 Words: Crime, mystery, murder, love, family. AUDIOBOOK.This was very good, and I absolutely loved the narrator, but I felt that the story itself was a little bit too slow and the narrative a little bit too sloppy.It seems to be a common theme that women in the police force are basically shat upon by every male in the force, and it gets a little tiresome after a while. This theme is there full force in this book and it felt like a little bit too much, like it have gone just that little bit too [...]

    8. Book Addict Shaun

      4.5 starsI loved the sound of this book after reading its blurb and hoped it would meet my expectations. I'm glad to say that it did. Our main character is DS Grace Fisher who I warmed to immediately. It felt like I already knew her and not like I'd only just met her. Once a DI she is now disgraced, in the midst of a divorce and hoping Essex is the place she can start afresh. Her first case with new partner Lance is the case of a missing student named Polly. No sooner have they attempted to inve [...]

      The first book in the series revolving around DI Grace Fisher. There are two story lines running through this book, the first is Grace's story and why she has just started this new (demoted) position. We find out in a series of flash backs and re-tellings ( a few too many re-tellings- I got it the first time) about how she had apparently grassed up a fellow officer for drug abuse and how the rest of her colleagues including her hubby and commanding officer turned against her, she was forced to r [...]

    10. Alfred Nobile

      I finished this book but I didn't enjoy it. I found the story very slow and the last 100 pages were the best part of the book.

    11. Amy Wanstall

      Thanks to the guys at Quercus for a copy of Isabelle’s Grey’s new novel in exchange for review. Having read The Bad Mother I was excited to see what Grey would come up with next and Good Girls Don’t Die doesn’t disappointment.This is set to be the first in a series of books starring Detective Sergent Grace Fisher, new to the Essex Police Force having moved from Kent after the breakup of her marriage, she has a great back story forced out of her old team, deserted by those she thought wer [...]

    12. Damaskcat

      I found this a compelling read and it in two days. Grace Fisher - previously a Detective Inspector in the Kent force has moved to Essex to start a new life as a Detective Sergeant. The reader does not know at first exactly what happened to Grace to cause her to leave her previous job but the circumstances are gradually revealed. A student disappears following a night out and Grace is part of the investigating team. As she gradually builds relationships with her colleagues she meets up with a fri [...]

    13. Daniel Woodward

      Won this book as part of the good reads first reads system, so was looking forward to reading this. I liked the main character and was intrigued that she had a chequered past in Kent and now had moved to Essex and was forever hoping that her past would not affect her future. I liked the pace of the book and this was constant and I found this made for a steady read.Most of the other characters were good although I wasnt so keen on their only being a few real options as to the killers identity and [...]

    14. Nini

      I really enjoyed this book, I tend to favour the male detectives but Grace Fisher was a fantastic character. I found it interesting to see both the murder case and Graces past unfold simultaniously. The descriptions were detailed and the story flowed well with enough red herrings to make the ending a surprise. A well written story with likeable characters I will be trying out the authors other work .

    15. Jo

      Grace moves to Colchester to make a new start as a detective sergeant in the local constabulary. A student goes missing from the university then another is found murdered and violated. Was it the randy law lecturer or maybe the Polish house owner who liked to watch the girls. Great story and I do hope this is the start of a series.

    16. Angela Free

      Wasn't sure at firstemed a bit slow. But then I got into it and really had no idea who the murderer was until towards the end. There were a lot of suspects and I was never really sure. Felt sorry for the murderer though, the reasons why he did what he did.

    17. Pampuig

      Absolutely loved this book. I listened on audio and the narrated was excellent but most importantly a good modest (for once) british detective story. Went straight for another book by Isabelle Grey.

    18. Frances

      4 1/2 star listenA really good start to a new series , a very likable main character , exciting plot, keeps you guessing throughout, which suspect actually did it !

    19. Elaine Tomasso

      I think this is a good start to what, I hope, will be a series. Grace Fisher was hounded out of her job in Maidstone for doing the right thing and has moved to Colchester to make a fresh start. Unfortunately a student disappears on her first day in the new job and then a couple of days later a body is found, but it's not the missing student. Are they linked? There is nothing particularly new in the plot - the police haul in a couple of plausible suspects and the plot revolves around their action [...]

    20. Mandie Kok

      This is a compelling introduction to a new detective series starring police officer Grace Fisher. The murder is unraveled slowly, but realistically. The story felt very fresh and up to date, with references to modern technology that the author clearly understood. That was refreshing, as there is nothing worse than reading about detectives trying to solve a murder without comprehending the roles Twitter or cellphones played in the crime.Although the story was slow-going, it had a depth that I fou [...]

    21. Allie

      Not as much of a page turner as I thought it would be but reasonable enough plot and characters. Thought this would be a bit more gripping

      Book ReviewTitle: Good girls don’t dieAuthor: Isabelle GreyGenre: Horror/Crime/RomanceRating: ****Review: Good Girls Don’t Die is the first in a new crime series written by Isabelle Grey, known for her previous psychological thrillers Out of Sight and Bad Mother. Good Girls Don’t Die marks a change of direction for Grey from TV work to novels. Once I found out that she had worked with Jimmy McGovern on an episode of Accused, I was even more thrilled to get to grips with DS Grace Fisher and [...]

    23. Claire Ellis

      Overall I was a bit disappointed with this book as it was made obvious early on who the killer was and the main character, Grace, came across as being weak and lacking in confidence - e.g. by not choosing to voice her theories about who she believed the killer was as she didn’t want to show herself up in front of her colleagues.

    24. kelly

      This book took a while to get going and was so predictable it was stupid! This is not a page turner and there is no twist at the end, there is a lack of suspense and the prolouge seemed pretty pointless.However the writing was good and I like the MC Grace and if you like police style stories maybe this is for you, but this was neither the murder mystery or thriller I expected.

    25. Judi Mckay

      I really hope that this is the start of a series, as I loved the character of Grace Fisher. I liked the book - a good story with enough procedural in to make me happy and a great through line of Grace's own problems and life. Great beach read. (I read this as the same time as I was bingewatching the third series of Broadchurch and the similarities with some of the MOs are scarily similar)

    26. Lesley

      Whilst I enjoyed this, I won't go on to the next book in the series, simply because my taste has changed and I now appear to prefer light, frothy, easy to read, feel good books.I may have had enough of blood and gore!Never thought I would see that day come, and there are certain authors I would never forego.

    27. geraldine

      Well written but far to much fluff to fill pages. The storyline was good but unfortunately not much happened, I was bored will half way through and practically skimmed the second half of the book to see if the very obvious killer was caught.

    28. Anne Robinson

      Good plot with engaging main character. As I had already read the second book in the series, I had extra knowledge of Grace's past that would have been experienced in a slightly different way if I had been reading this book first. I will now have to request book three from the library!
