Audiobook Review: All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers


Published in 2022, All Good People Here by Ashley Flowers follows aspiring investigative journalist Margot Davies who is stuck at a small-time newspaper, until she stumbles upon a new development in an unsolved case that took place in her hometown: the infamous murder of six-year-old January Jacobs.

Margot quickly becomes obsessed with solving the case and returns to the town she left at eight years old, hoping to bring justice to January, who was discovered dead in a ditch only hours after her family awoke to find her gone, along with a horrifying message spray-painted on their kitchen walls.

As Margot digs deeper into the case, she begins to suspect that not everything is as it seems. There is something more sinister than she ever could have imagined lurking in the town: a twisted secret that threatens to endanger the lives of everyone involved, including Margot.


A cold case, a mystery surrounding a small town, an eager journalist prying for answers – this is exactly the kind of thriller I love!

All Good People Here is a compelling, twisted, and strongly developed thriller set over dual timelines, as links between past and present crimes slowly start to emerge.

I haven’t listened to any of the author’s Crime Junkie podcast, but you can tell that she has researched numerous true crime stories and that she has weaved her knowledge of similar cases into her own story, as All Good People Here feels very genuine and every angle is explored with perfect execution.

Audiobook Review:

I’ve seen many readers say that they thought the story was too much of a slow burn and that the ending was too abrupt, but maybe the audiobook comes across differently as I had no trouble remaining gripped to the story.

I also thought that the ending was full of suspense and the twists absolutely stopped me in my tracks. Personally, I have no complaints whatsoever!
