A Good Girl: A Charlie McClung Mystery (The Charlie McClung Mysteries) (Volume 2) by, Mary Anne Edwards

xxxxAbout the book ;For Charlie McClung, going home to Virginia with Marian was supposed to be a joyous occasion, but upon arrival at his childhood home, he’s met with a note instead of his family.

“Don’t worry, Love, we’re all okay. Come to the shop. A dead girl was found in an armoire delivered just now. Huggies, Ma”

Charlie is quickly recruited to help solve the murder of a young girl who was on the path to becoming a nun. The suspects begin to mount as Charlie delves deep into the girl’s life, revealing a sordid and ugly side of the town’s good girl.

My Review:

A Good Girl, is the second book in the Charlie McClung Mystery. Detective McClung in on a well needed vacation, with girlfriend Marion. What should be an Irish family meeting of his girlfriend and all of Charlie’s loved ones turns out to be a murder of a girl wanting to be a nun, amongst his own childhood hometown. Charlie pins his badge on to help his family and find out just how this murder occurred in his quiet neighborhood with his own families business in the mix. With all the McClung’s fawning over Marion, she has to decide if she will get involved to help Charlie, so this family celebration stays on track. With police, detectives and family running about, there is a calm that is in store. A safe place to be with this new family for Marion. There’s also a surprise in store for all involved, but can it take place with all this murder and drama going on? Let’s see if this can hold these two love birds together and maybe just maybe start a never ending chapter that’s full of love from the first page you turn the very last page in the book.


The McClung Mystery series, are books you can easily get consumed in. Close character relationships, comfort, laughs and a few tears will also be provided. Edwards never lost track of the story line and keep the reader quite content. Her giving the reader a total “wow” that no reader saw coming is just the added bonus that will bring the reader back. A Good Girl is the element of an Irish treasure trove. The Charlie McClung mystery series, is a twist of romance, mystery, suspenseful “whodunit” pot of gold.
