Book review: Girls like us

Hello everyone;

AND *beat the drums please*, I finished my second book this month!! It may be like no big deal but I was having a really REALLY lazy days, along with lazy slow reading. So… YAY for me!! *clapping enthusiastically*

Now, let’s get through this. *trying to be sirius, wait am I?*

*I received a digital copy of this book from Edelweiss+ for an honest review*

I’m going to copy the summary from Goodreads, because (obviously!)I’m having a laziness illness (it may be contagious, just don’t blame me for anything afterwards)

From the celebrated and bestselling author of The Banker’s Wife, worlds collide when an FBI agent investigates a string of grisly murders on Long Island that raises the impossible question: What happens when the primary suspect is your father?

FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn’t been home in ten years. Nell and her father, Homicide Detective Martin Flynn, have never had much of a relationship. And Suffolk County will always be awash in memories of her mother, Marisol, who was brutally murdered when Nell was just seven.

When Martin Flynn dies in a motorcycle accident, Nell returns to the house she grew up in so that she can spread her father’s ashes and close his estate. At the behest of her father’s partner, Detective Lee Davis, Nell becomes involved in an investigation into the murders of two young Latina women in Suffolk County. The further Nell digs, the more likely it seems to her that her father should be the prime suspect–and that his friends on the police force are covering his tracks. Plagued by doubts about her mother’s murder–and her own role in exonerating her father in that case–Nell can’t help but ask questions about who killed Ria Ruiz and Adriana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds–not just about those she loves, but about herself.


Interesting, isn’t it?

Cristina Alger is the author of Girls Like Us (due out July 2, 2019), The Bankerโ€™s WifeThe Darlings, and This Was Not the Plan. A graduate of Harvard College and NYU Law School, she worked as a financial analyst and a corporate attorney before becoming a writer. She lives in New York with her husband and children.

I pretty much like this book, especially the “second half” because I was thinking about some characters in a way , only to realize I was wrong which really attracted my attention, I even started reading faster and faster to know what would happen at the end.

I think this is my lucky month because the books I’ve read so far are FANTASTIC!!

You should really read it, just give it a try , okay?

  1. Oh I love plottwists! I used to read a lot more thrillers/mysteries and I actually don’t know why I ever stopped because I do still like tvshows like Criminal Minds. I’ll definitely be adding this book to my maybe pile and if I ever feel like reading a thriller/mystery, I’ll grab this! Great review!
