    In a genre completely overrun with domestic thrillers and unreliable narrators, Girls Like Us is a breath of fresh air and a very welcome addition. A true mystery in the best sense of the word, Girls Like Us stars FBI agent Nell Flynn who has come to Suffolk County, on Long Island, New...

    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 charac...

    4.5 stars. What a pleasure it is to read a thriller that doesn't have an unreliable narrator, one which keeps you guessing about every single plot point because you don't know what is true and what is a figment of their imagination! FBI agent Nell Flynn returns to her childhood h...

    rounded up 4.5 Stars Girls Like Us is an addictive mystery in a thriller/suspense genre that so often churns out the same old same old unreliable narrator and predictable twists. The novel is told through the 1st person POV of FBI agent Nell Flynn, definitely as trustworthy and reli...

    Read the book instead of the blurb. If you haven't read the blurb yet, then don't. I think it gives away far too much, and this mystery/thriller would have been more enjoyable if I didn't know quite so much going into it. Other than that, this was a great quick read. Girl...

    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, b...
