Trinity is a young woman who has survived a large traumatic event and has suffered with extreme anxiety afterwards. Trinity proves to have much more courage and strength than she gives herself credit for. Trinity embarks on a journey of self discovery and growth that while scary is one she was brave enough to embark on. Reid on the other hand has grown up in a life of privilege and a family that seems to love and support him. However, he has dark needs that drive him. Reid is eventually made to begin to face some of his own demons. Reid has to decide whether or not he is willing to be brave himself, face whatever problems he is suppressing and reach for what he is afraid of wanting. The "sisters" that Trinity is introduced to are an interesting twist to the story. Jacqueline has created a safe haven for herself as well as the young women that she has taken in. Although I am not so sure that I like the way in which Jacqueline has provided for them, it totally works within this story. These women have banded together to take care of one another in a world that has not treated any of them kindly. Although we don't get very much of the girls' individual background it is clear that there has to be interesting back stories to each of them. Maybe Saint James will continue the series with stories for each of them. Hint, hint Saint James!
I am torn by the ending of part one. I want Trinity to be happy but as Trinity learns more about Reid, especially what is revealed at the end of part one I'm not sure if it is possible. Reid's demon is much larger than Trinity could have guessed. I have to say if I had a handsome, considerate, and sexy titled English Lord wanting to have a serious relationship with me it would be extremely hard to walk away from him. The narration is well done and Kitty Barclay does a great job of making each character individual. Barclay allows the dialogue to flow well and the listener is well drawn into the story. I very much enjoyed this audio book. The only small negatives that I found was that sometimes the dialogue felt a little more formal than I believe a young American woman would use and everyone seemed to need to reinforce how beautiful Trinity is to the point of excess. However, these two things did not affect my enjoyment of the story. The Good Sister 1 ends on a cliffhanger, but never fear part 2 is available in eBook form so if you are impatient like me you can pick up the eBook and find out what happens next.

It is a really engaging and terrific read. I love Ms Saint James storytelling. Sure, I still had moments where I was annoyed with the story, but I can not deny it was a wonderful reading experience.
Another sore spot is the first person narrative, I generally dislike these, but they are more tolerable in audiobooks. The whole book comes from Trinity's POV, which limits the story in many ways. You only get to know what others are thinking if they tell her. Plus, she has serious angst going on, loads of fears and anxiety to get past. Still she manages to be very likeable. I was routing for her and really could see her growing as the story progressed. I love her unexpected sass!
The book is rather smexy!! Oh yeah, wide open bedroom door! Some hawt voyeurism and seriously steamy scenes!! Hold onto your panties, cause this one is a drencher!
I was kind of take um or leave um about the guys. I wanted to like them, but really thought she could do better. Reid is really tough to like for most of the book, but hang in there he gets better.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Kitty Barclay, who is fabulous! Her tone is perfect for conveying Trinity and her journey. She has a wonderful pace that moves the book along swiftly. The book is filled with slow moments that her voice makes delightful. I will definitely be looking for more of her reads!!!
Overall, I enjoyed the book, even though the genre is not a favorite. I can however say it was a smooth read that kept me enthralled from beginning to end.
