Wyatt vows to keep her safe and he stays with her in her cottage but at a distance because tinsley cannot handle any touch or closeness. It broke my heart reading what poor tinsley had gone through at the hands of The skull. I devoured this book! The ending left room for another book as well so I will be anxiously waiting!

Loved how the author describes the thoughts going through The Skulls head it scared me! Jul 25, Charlotte Lynn rated it really liked it. This is the story of Tinsley and the Skull. The Skull kidnapped Tinsley leaving her with panic attacks and unable to leave her cottage on the beach. The anniversary of her kidnapping is approaching and the Skull wants her back. I love that the detective that saved her in the first book is still around and still protecting her.
With each panic attack, he comes to her rescue and never makes her feel bad about it. He respects her boundaries, he holds her when she needs it and listens to her talk. T This is the story of Tinsley and the Skull. There was a simmering attraction between them that intrigued me. I was definitely cheering for them to come together or at least spend more time together.
While the story focuses on Tinsley, the secondary characters got storylines also.
Their stories were just as suspenseful as the main story and I am hoping that there could be more of them in future books in this series. I recommend starting with book one and just keep on reading. Jul 12, Avid Reader rated it it was amazing. Tinsley is sick and tired of hiding. She wants to be part of the world again - to live instead of exist.
However, because of her traumatic past, she has PTSD and anxiety so severe that just thinking about leaving her house sends her in to panic attacks. She has a few ways to contact the outside world, but even with those, the sacrifices that she's had to make in order to feel secure are too much. Wyatt was there when Tinsley was rescued. She haunts him. Despite knowing her past and seeing her scars, he believes that she's the most brave person he's ever met.
He sees her - not the scars or her trauma - but her. Wyatt and Tinsley's characters are complex and written very well. There is a chemistry to them that you cannot believe and it's not only a sexual tension but an admiration between them. I liked how their characters were there for each other - to lean on and support. Tinsley is in for the fight of her life and Wyatt wants to be there to help her along the way.
When the Skull returns, people will come out of the story as a hero, villains and would be meddlers.

It's a great story with even more wonderful twists. I can't wait to see what comes next! Jul 30, Heather rated it really liked it. Holy cow! The perfect mix of suspense and romance! You'll find yourself unable to put this book down, constantly wanting to read more about skull and his twisted reality. The Keepers is a very interesting piece of this book. I can't wait to read their next target! Jul 25, Sarah rated it really liked it. I can honestly say that I liked this book a lot more then the first book in the series.
I felt this one let the reader know what was going on and I did not feel as lost as I did in the first book. I really enjoyed this book and part of me feels this should have been the first book of the series. This was a very good read and I am giving it four out of five stars. Jun 27, Geri rated it really liked it. ARC from Netgalley I read liked the first book and was looking forward to the follow up. This was a really good story with lots of suspense.
I liked the characters and little romance towards the end. Jun 18, Peggy Jaeger rated it it was amazing. Terrified the Skull is still out there and will come back to claim her — the girl that got away — she has a panic attack whenever she tries to leave her home, making her an agoraphobic. She is terrified of anyone touching her and hates that the Skull ruined her chances of every finding intimacy and love with a man.
He want to see Tinsley live her life again, be the girl she was before she was kidnapped, raped and tortured. I loved the first Keepers book and this one was just as good. The dialogue is excellent, the conflicts well drawn out and the plot fast. Thank you to Netgalley for allowing me to read an arc of this book for an honest opinion.
Jul 31, Louise Scholl rated it it was amazing. Great, great book. I won this one in a Goodreads giveaway. I loved it, so I bought the first one in the series. Aug 18, Marielle rated it liked it. Mostly suspense, with a little romance thrown in, 2,5 stars. Lately I've felt more like reading romantic suspense than straight-up romance, so when I got the change to read an ARC for this author I hadn't read before thanks Netgalley I was excited. Since this is the second book in a series, and from the blurb it felt like there was an overaching story-arc yes, there is , I read book 1 before starting this one, so now I've read two books by this author.
The opinions in this review are my own, a Mostly suspense, with a little romance thrown in, 2,5 stars. The opinions in this review are my own, and don't necessarily reflect how someone else would review this book. The writing style of Ms. Herron, at least in this series, has a lot of POV's in it, which to me had the effect of not being able to get into the story, and into the characters. The main characters of this book were also present in the previous book, and their experiences with The Skull were horrific and left both damaged, the heroine to the point she doesn't leave her house and can't be touched.
Since this is romantic suspense, I was looking forward to not only learning more about the bad guy, but also to seeing how these two damaged characters would overcome their problems and learn to love each other. The romance wasn't very well fleshed out in book 1, but I had hopes it might work better in this second instalment. Well, I definitely learned a lot about The Skull, and the suspense plot was worked out well, and had me reading along the book just fine. What lowered my fun was the romance part. The main characters hardly had any time together, yet they seemed to have this insta-love thing going on.
It could be their romance started somewhere before the whole mess with the Skull, and long before the start of book 1 in this series, but that part didn't carry over into the story, and therefore their connection didn't feel true to me. It certainly wasn't enough to have me believing how they got 'truly' wink wink together. It felt rushed, too soon, and just… off. So, if you're mostly interested in reading a suspense story: go for it. If you're also looking for some believable romance, my advice is to look somewhere else, for example to Loreth Anne White.
For her future books, if Ms Herron wants to continue in the romantic suspense genre, I'd love to see more attention paid to the romance-part. Good Little Girls was my first time reading Rita Herron, and even though it was the second book in the series, it was readable as a standalone. Of course, there is an advantage to reading the first book because it is closely related to the happenings in the second, but the author does a good job of filling in blanks with flashbacks.
Tinsley is living in a secluded cabin after being rescued from a demented serial killer. Unfortunately at the end of the first book, he got away, so she spends every day in fear for her life. Tinsley has come to rely heavily on Wyatt, the detective who saved her life. Tinsley begins to see her abductor lurking outside her house, and Wyatt is not sure if its her imagination and fear, or if he is legitimately back and stalking her.
Things get more and more tense as the threats steadily increase. I am a huge thriller and suspense fan.

This book fit the bill. It was dark, terrifying and anxiety-ridden. It had some content that was difficult to read, and had plenty of surprise twists. There were some romantical emotions thrown in, and plenty of turmoil and secrets. This book legitimately covered the range of emotions. While I felt the book had a steady pace and kept me pushing through to the end, there was something about the way it ended that felt just a little too easy. There were twists, but everything seemed to fall into place in a way that felt a little deflating after all the build up.
I still really enjoyed it and would recommend it, but for that reason, I lowered my rating by one star. Still a solid 4 star read, this one is worth picking up. Aug 06, Tarrah Marie rated it it was amazing. However, after doing so myself, I am regretful as I can only imagine the first book was just as outstanding as this one. Rita Herron has captured the raw emotion and brutality of what a thriller book should equate to.
This book is definitely not for the faint of heart or for those who may be sensitive reading on the subject of SA. Fans of Mo Hayder and Karin Slaughter will enjoy. Tinsley Jensen has become agoraphobic since her escape from the serial killer and rapist known as the Skull. She has lost everything and everyone that she loved and she lives out her days alone, fearing that he will return for her as he once promised.
Tinsley begins receiving threats through her online support group and strange objects begin to show up at her home. As she and Wyatt work together, she begins to feel that she can trust again. However, people she loves start to go missing and her worst nightmares become reality. Will Tinsley be able to face her fears and trust Wyatt or will she succumb to the Skull once again?
This book is a fantastic mix of emotion. Herron has really nailed the true grit that comes with surviving the brutality that the main character has endured. You can feel the fear, anguish, and longing she experiences. One can ask, where Herron came up with that background on the Skull, but maybe some things are better left unanswered. The descriptive detail she utilizes in every aspect of the novel has the reader on the edge of their seat the whole time. Utterly creepy and disturbing.
Nov 29, M rated it it was ok. There are characters in this book, some unnamed or partially named. The book opens with nine head-twisting POV shifts in 25 pages. Plus the creepy Skull. The storyline is as described in the book blurb, but there are multiple plot holes. This book is overburdened with agony, angst, whinging and self-blame—courtesy of the Jensen sisters.

If I suffered from anxiety I'd need a pill after that.. This is NOT a standalone book. You need to have read the first one. Man where to start.. Tinsley Jensen is the sole survivor of the serial killer known as the Skull. Since her escape she has been a shut in from fear since he escaped capture. FBI Agent Wyatt Camden was one of the agents that was on her case when she went missing and was the one that rescued her but was almost gravely injured by Whew.. FBI Agent Wyatt Camden was one of the agents that was on her case when she went missing and was the one that rescued her but was almost gravely injured by the Skull.
Now fully recovered he still feels a sense of guilt that they were unable to capture the Skull and keeps in close contact with Tinsley even though she skittish around people, especially men. The 1st anniversary of when Tinsley was taken is coming up and everyone is on edge knowing that the Skull is probably going to come back and take her. This right here is when your anxiety levels start going up.. Not going to give too much away but the author did a spectacular job with the build up that was also accompanied by other side plots that were just as thrilling.
I cannot wait to see what's next in this insane series.. Jul 25, Literati Literature Lovers rated it really liked it. Gritty and Dark 3. This is book two in The Keepers series which deals with vigilante justice in Savannah and the surrounding area. In book one the ramifications of hunting for the murder the Skull was the back story for the hero and heroine. The book is gripping and chapter twenty six is cringe worthy as it goes into the sexual sadism that propels the killer.
The details deal with his sexual feelings towards his mother.
Honestly this chapter could have been omitted but it does underscore his depravity and that even of his father. This made the book a very dark read and it was extremely chilling at points. The book was very well written up until the end of the book, where the author fast forwarded into the intimate relationship between Wyatt and Tinsley.
The ending felt rushed and tacked on so that resulted in me taking a star off the rating.
French distribution :
It was as if Tinsley became a totally different person in the last five percent of the book, which left me scratching my head. Which removed star ratings from the book. The vigilantism is still in the book, but takes a back seat to the hunt for the Skull. The author also set up a new mystery in this book that I assume will be dealt with in book three.
I read this book via kindle unlimited and do plan to read the rest of the series. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. I chose it since it is a favorite genre of romantic suspense with an FBI team. It had Hatcher and Korine as a temporary team since Wyatt was on medical leave. I loved the case aspect and the narration in Pretty Little Killers. I wasn't sure where things would go in Good Little Girls. The setting is 11 months later. Hatcher and Korine are married and expecting a baby. Wyatt is back teamed up with Hatcher. Tinsley has been hiding out since she escaped the Skull.
She has not left the cottage. Tinsley pushed away her sister because she is afraid it will make her sister a target. She continues her blog where woman share their stories and feelings. The one-year anniversary of her abduction is coming up and the Skull is stalking her again. The mystery of who is the Skull continues with a suspenseful, twisty path. While I thought the romance of Hatcher and Korine was rather fast and unrealistic, the slow build of Wyatt and Tinsley felt real.
I had to listen at a 1. I was able to listen at my normal 1. With a setting near Savannah, GA there could have been more of a drawl. I enjoyed both her male and female voices with her performance adding to emotional impact of the story. Listen to a clip here View 1 comment. Jul 11, Vikki Vaught rated it really liked it.

Worth every one of the five stars! Release Day Review!
He may Release Day Review! Good Little Girls is the second book in The Keepers series and wraps readers up in page turning and adrenaline pumping suspense. Wyatt adds the understanding and protective hero to the story and the romance is on the sweet side as he discovers that he has feeling for Tinsley. The plot flows smoothly with a steady and fast pace that draws readers along with all the suspense building events and clues to unmasking the bad guys. But this story also has another element, one that has readers questioning which side would they take if they were the ones involved in the heart wrenching and soul destroying situations.
This story is a thriller and therefore readers should be prepared for all the emotional turmoil that this story could evoke and all the violence and implied rape that this story covers. The author does a great job of giving readers information about the first book without giving too much away, so that readers can understand what is going on and how the readers reached this point.
I was kept on the edge of my seat and even found myself holding my breath and quite a few points in the story.

Jul 14, Visionary Druid rated it really liked it. He feels guilty about not capturing the serial killer. When Tinsley Jensen contacts him, Wyatt rushes to her house.
The frightened woman provokes unprofessional feelings in him. Wyatt intends to capture the dangerous sociopath, so the masked man cannot hurt another woman. Can Wyatt protect Tinsley from the Skull? Or will the sociopath elude him for a second time? Tinsley Jensen is the sole survivor of the masked sociopath Skull. She finds solace in helping victims similar to her with an on-line blog. With the anniversary of her captivity looming, Tinsley suspects the Skull has returned.
The only person she can trust to help her is Special Agent Wyatt Camden. Can Tinsley escape the psychological hold the Skull has over her? Or will she be forever trapped by her fear? Wyatt is such a wonderful hero. He actually empathized with Tinsley over her ordeal instead of treating her with cool detachment. I like how despite it being a year since the case, Wyatt maintains in contact with her. He would rather not disabuse her trust by pushing for a deeper, romantic connection; instead, Wyatt respects her need for space.
Tinsley is such a courageous and inspirational character. She is tired of being a shell of her former self. I like that Tinsley strives to take back her life by fighting her dilapidating fears instead of allowing them to continue ruling her life. I also like how she acknowledges and accepts the fact that she will not be the same person as she had once been. However, what I admire the most about Tinsley is the inner strength it took for her to share her experiences on an on-line blog.
She does not do it for the attention; instead, she hopes her blog helps other victims deal with their traumas. I sometimes felt as if I missed some important information from not having read the first book, yet it did not hinder my ability to follow the storyline or connect with the characters. It made me feel as if I was watching one of my favorite criminal television dramas. I cannot wait to see what the author has in store for the next installment.

She has cut off most contact with the world as she waits for the killer to return for her, as he promised to do. FBI agent Wyatt Camden nearly died saving Tinsley once before and he is determined to catch her abductor. Between the discovery of human remains on the beach which are all missing their heads, The Keepers taking up where the killer in the first book left off, and the search for The Skull, there is a lot going on.
The stories are woven together well and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the how each of the events link together and following the different leads. This process is really helped along by the author giving the points of view of different players in the story. But the crimes covered in this story are not for the faint hearted, it is pretty unpleasant at times.

While crime solving is the primary story we also have a secondary story of the evolving relationship between Wyatt and Tinsley. I had no trouble connecting with Wyatt as he tried to solve the crimes but It took me a little time to warm up to Tinsley. She initially felt a little dim to me but given when she had been trough with The Skull I was being unfair to her and honestly in the end I think I liked her simply because Wyatt did.
The romance is a nice soft contrast to the harshness of the crime story which includes murder, rape and animal cruelty. Jul 15, Eva Millien rated it really liked it.
