I started reading Girls Like Us on 6 18 2019 and finished it on 6 21 2019 at 2 45am This book is a great read I enjoyed the conversations and connecting the dots from one murder scene to another It has a slow start but picks up when a dead body was found I like that the main character is independent and smart She sounds like a tomboy who fixes her own roof and able to navigate around a rough house The mystery and suspense were well placed and I couldn t guess who the killer was I enjoyed the mystery with Nell s dad.This book is told in the first person point of view following Nell Flynn, 28 FBI Agent as she and her father s co workers ride the fishing boat out to the open water to spread Nell s dad s ashes She grew up with her dad, homicide detective after her mom was murdered but moved away for 10 years after high school That is to say she hasn t been close with her dad and doesn t know what he s been up to Now she s back home with an injured shoulder, a gunshot wound inflicted on the job about a month ago, to deal with the aftermath of her father s untimely death While at home, her high school classmate Lee, also her dad s partner in homicide came to ask her for help on a new murder case, a body just discovered that morning As she investigate, sh
I d really like to give this book 3.5 s It was mysterious and twisty enough to keep me intrigued to the end, and the writing was excellent, so I m rounding up to 4 s.My previous read was focused around memories This book didn t focus on memories quite as much, but they certainly played their part Are they always reliable Can we tell ourselves something enough times, it becomes real to us The author threw out so many threads that lead in so many different directions, I wasn t sure where to focus my attention I was kept guessing to the end While Nell and her father went on a camping trip when she was seven, her mother stayed home She was brutally murdered, so Nell was raised by her father Marty was a cop with the local PD, in the homicide division, but they were never very close She grew up around his PD coworker s and they were like her family Dorsey, was even Nell s godfather Nell herself became an FBI agent in the BAU, after leaving home.She returns to her home in Long Island after her father is killed in a tragic motorcycle accident, to attend his funeral and take care of his estate Just a quick trip and she s out of there Then a murder victim is found and she s asked to consult on the case by Lee Her father s previous partner and another local that Nell grew up with Her father had a case the previous summer that he never closed Similar profile She begins to suspect the local PD of corruptio
