After reading The Banker’s Wife, I immediately knew I would be a Cristina Alger fan for life! And her book, Girls Like Us, proved it true!
Girls like Us follows our main character, Nell, as she returns home after her father dies in an accident. What follows is a thrilling story that wraps us around her character and leaves the reader wanting more. I thought the entire story was well though out and the characters were developed beautifully! I would definitely recommend picking up a copy to see what happens!
Here is the official Blurb:
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 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. (less)
