In Juliet Domvile’s book “The Goodbye Girls,” Aislin Fitzgerald decides to return to her grandmother’s house when she doesn’t have anywhere else to go. She had lost her job after making details of a friend’s abusive marriage public. Her relationship with her grandmother Letty was strained after Aislin had vanished following her grandfather’s death. Aislin’s return to her hometown brought back memories she desperately wanted to avoid. She runs into her former best friend, Sarah, and they rekindle their friendship. The two have an epiphany and decide to start a funeral planning business called “The Goodbye Girls.” The idea was born out of the increasing number of deaths in the community and Letty’s love of funerals. Things do not go as planned for the friends, and their business proposal quickly turns into a nightmare.

Juliet Domvile takes readers on a journey through the ups and downs of friendship, family, and love. “The Goodbye Girls” is a flawless page-turner. Each character has distinct characteristics that set them apart and make them appealing. The reviewer’s favorite character was Letty. She is smart-mouthed and reckless, much to the dismay of her granddaughter. Domvile’s novel is the ideal blend of suspense, romance, humor, and adventure. The reviewer was completely engrossed in the pages. The plot was uncomplicated, and the storyline was seamless. Aislin and Sarah make a perfect duo, and the friendship is admirable. It was a fantastic book, short and interesting to read. If you enjoy suspenseful novels with a dash of humor, don’t pass this one up.
