#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * In the propulsive debut novel from the host of the #1 true crime podcast Crime Junkie, a journalist uncovers her hometown's dark secrets when she becomes obsessed with the unsolved murder of her childhood neighbor--and the disappearance of another girl twenty years later.   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?… (més)

Disclosure: I HAD to read this book because I experienced an unintentional overnight in Wakarusa, Indiana, due to an unexpected blizzard! Truly :-)
This was one of my FAVORITE books of 2022! I had it on hold at the library for months and it was well worth the wait. The story explores the disappearance of a six year old girl in 1994, and then a similar disappearance twenty years later. The main character, Margot, returns to Wakarusa (her childhood home) twenty years after the brutal murder of her best friend, January. Margot is a newspaper journalist whose job is on the line, but she feels a responsibility to return to Wakarusa to care for her uncle, who was her primary father figure as a child. Soon after her arrival, another little girl is murdered and Margot decides to follow the story, resulting in investigative pursuits that unearth multiple skeletons in the town's closet. Not only does she discover secrets of the town, she discovers secrets her own family has hidden. While I loved this book, I did have some issues with the ending. I'm looking forward to more books by this author. ( )

This is quite a thriller. So many twists and turns keep the reader guessing what’s next. ( )

Margot, a journalist, returns to her hometown of Wakarusa, IN to care for her uncle Luke who is losing his memory. When she overhears a story of a missing girl, Natalie, she can't help but compare it to the death of her best friend, January, 20 years earlier. As she tries to piece the murders together, she begins to find out information about her family and the small town community, and the secrets they have held for years.
This reads like a true crime novel. It leaves you with an uneasy feeling at the end, when the truth is revealed. ( )

2.75 stars but I’m rounding up to a 3.
Told in two different timelines, first following Krissy, the mother of the murdered 6 year old January Jones, and also following Margot, once January’s friend, now journalist, who has been obsessed with solving this case of her friend ever since. The story clearly is based on the Jon Benet Ramsey case, a young girl murdered, every person who has heard of it has a distinct opinion on who is guilty: either the work of a stranger or “it’s the strange mother!”, or “it’s the weird brother!”
I did enjoy the perspective of Krissy. We’re able to look at how strong a grip a small town community has on its members, and how that leads to secrets and lies.
I didn’t enjoy the Margot perspective. I didn’t find Margot to be a likeable character, nor did I find her actions as applaudable, which I think the author wants us to approve of the lengths Margot goes to solve the crime but also create a story as a journalist.
The ending was full of “gotcha!” moments, and while it tied everything together, it wasn’t satisfactory. ( )
