A GOOD GIRL by Mary Anne Edwards

A Good Girl: A Charlie McClung Mystery (The Charlie McClung Mysteries Book 2)

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.


MARY ANNE EDWARDS in her own words Although I was born in Mercedes, Texas, I have lived in Georgia most of my life which has been filled with a variety of experiences. Some were great and some, well let's just say I have learned many lessons the hard way.

I am active in Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter, a member of Mystery Writers of America, and I sit on the advisory board of Rockdale Cares, Inc., a non-profit advocacy group for the developmentally challenged.

I began writing in high school but not seriously until 1999. I write traditional mysteries and my biggest influences are Agatha Christie, Anne Perry, Caroline Graham, Elizabeth Peters, and my family.

"Brilliant Disguise" is the first book in the Detective Charlie McClung Mysteries. The second book, "A Good Girl," was released September 23, 2014. "A Criminal King" will be released April, 2015. There are seven more to follow in the series. I hope you enjoy reading my books. Please visit my website,, and send me note. I love hearing from you. Please don't forget to leave a review. Thank you to all of my readers.

My review

5.0 out of 5 stars All Around an Enjoyable Read, December 2, 2014
This review is from: A Good Girl: A Charlie McClung Mystery (The Charlie McClung Mysteries Book 2) (Kindle Edition)      
A Good Girl by Mary Anne Edwards
Murder, Mystery and Romance. Easy flowing read to tap into your inner detective. I felt that the setting of the church and the feel of it were very well written. I felt I was there as the character’s lit candles.
The victim, ‘a good girl’ was explored through the suspects in a clever way, the Irish family with their traditions and language made the story colorful.
The romance was nice and tasteful, all around an enjoyable read.
