If you love listening to true crime podcasts- this is THE book for you! All Good People Here is actually written by the host of the Crime Junkie podcast and it had me hooked from the very beginning. Honestly, I have been in a reading slump and was desperate for a book to get me back in the mood. I read this book in less than 24 hours. Now, that might have something to do with the fact that my household was glued to the NFL playoff games over the weekend and I was thrilled to have something else to occupy my time… but either way… this was a great thriller!
I don’t tend to get caught up in plot holes (this one had a few) and the ending didn’t really wrap up in a nice tidy bow, but it had me guessing and turning the pages so for that I call it a win! If you like small town mysteries, followed the JonBenét Ramsey case, or enjoy true crime podcasts, you will get sucked right into this one. Overall, I definitely recommend this book for a quick and entertaining read that you will most likely gobble up in a day or two.

You can’t ever know for sure what happens behind closed doors.
Everyone from Wakarusa, Indiana, remembers the infamous case of January Jacobs, who was discovered in a ditch hours after her family awoke to find her gone. Margot Davies was six at the time, the same age as January—and they were next-door neighbors. In the twenty years since, Margot has grown up, moved away, and become a big-city journalist. But she’s always been haunted by the feeling that it could’ve been her. And the worst part is, January’s killer has never been brought to justice.
When Margot returns home to help care for her uncle after he is diagnosed with early-onset dementia, she feels like she’s walked into a time capsule. Wakarusa is exactly how she remembers—genial, stifled, secretive. Then news breaks about five-year-old Natalie Clark from the next town over, who’s gone missing under circumstances eerily similar to January’s. With all the old feelings rushing back, Margot vows to find Natalie and to solve January’s murder once and for all.
But the police, Natalie’s family, the townspeople—they all seem to be hiding something. And the deeper Margot digs into Natalie’s disappearance, the more resistance she encounters, and the colder January’s case feels. Could January’s killer still be out there? Is it the same person who took Natalie? And what will it cost to finally discover what truly happened that night twenty years ago?
Twisty, chilling, and intense, All Good People Here is a searing tale that asks: What are your neighbors capable of when they think no one is watching?
