Girls Like Us | Cristina Alger
From the celebrated and bestselling author of The Banker's Wife, worlds collide when a former 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 twelve 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 Hispanic 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 Ariana Marques and why. But she may not like the answers she finds--not just about those she loves, but about herself.

4.5 ★ I love a great crime fiction novel with a relatable strong female antagonist, a BONUS is this story addresses heavy issues straight off our front page. I was quickly absorbed into the high society scandals, human trafficking, murder, a possible serialist + the good old boy mentality of bad men that wear a badge; I devoured it in one sitting.

My view this morning. I finished my summer reading list, so now I‘m reading random books while looking for ones that fit my “summer by the sea” theme. #booksonboats

I picked up Girls Like Us pretty much because it‘s set on Long Island, and I think everyone knows by now that I particularly enjoy books set close to home. So far it‘s set on the south fork, where my in-laws have a house. I enjoy picturing the settings knowing what they actually look like & having inside info on the area. Seems like this will be a very quick read.

FBI Agent Nell Flynn hasn‘t been home for ten years. It‘s a place she had no desire to see again. Her mother had been brutally murdered there when she was only seven. She and her father never had a particularly close relationship. And now her father, a thirty-year homicide police officer, is killed... https://www.bluestockingreviews.com/post/girls-like-us

Girls Like Us is billed as a mystery/thriller. Nell returns back to Long Island after many years when her estranged father dies in a motorcycle accident. However, when she arrives to close out his estate and handle his ashes, there appears to be things that are not so Kosher.

Thank you NetGalley and G.P. Putnam‘s Sons for an Advanced Reader‘s Copy of this book, for an honest opinion.

I started this, then my hubby surprised me with a trip to the Smokey Mountains. I forgot my book, ugh! Just finished it. It was good. I always like a book where I am surprised at the end.

These books with similar titles seem different based on their covers. I'm fascinated by books with the same or almost the same titles. #GirlsLikeYou #AMonthofSongs

This was a fun, fast-paced, quick read. The plot was solid, although a few scenes were pretty anticlimactic and the ending felt a little formulaic. It‘s a great palate cleanser or vacation read though!
