The Finishing School by Joanna Goodman
It's not everyday that a friend of yours writes a book (and has it published). Our partner in retail, Joanna Goodman did just that and it ain't the first time. Her latest novel, The Finishing School, has got the Canadian bookheads talking.
Published by Harper Collins, The Finishing School is a suspenseful, provocative mystery about a successful writer who returns to her fancy Swiss boarding school to get to the bottom of a tragic accident that went down when she was a student twenty years earlier. Inspired by "real-ish" events, the best way to describe the pages of secrets, backstabbing and "friendships" is unputdownable.
The Finishing School is available wherever fine books are sold (we've always wanted to say that).
“Enthralling.... Both a compelling look into an exclusive world and a wise and heartbreaking story of a friendship and misplaced passion.... The book is addictive because of the mystery it explores.... Also notable is the deftness with which Goodman presents the complicated, passionate nature of friendships during formative years.” — Globe and Mail
“Suspenseful…. If your guilty-pleasure reads include elite boarding schools, secret societies, murder, and scandal, this one’s for you.” — Kirkus
“THE FINISHING SCHOOL pulls back the curtain to expose a fascinating world of desire, betrayal, and dangerous secrets.” — Lou Berney, Edgar Award-winning author of THE LONG AND FARAWAY GONE
