Loved the characters! Loved the atmosphere! Loved the storyline!

Now that she is backin her childhood town following her father’s death, old memories return and she is drawn to looking into some unanswered questions about her past. Shortly after her arrival,a dead body is found and Nell finds herself helping the local police investigate. Could the body be connected to one of her father’s old cases?
These characters were fantastic! I ADORED Nell! She was such a strong yet vulnerable character who I was rooting for from start to finish.
Each character carried an air of mystery which kept me curious to see how things would play out. The atmosphere was thick and engrossing throughout this thrilling and edgy storyline which had me flipping the pages as quickly as possible. I really enjoyed the writing – the pace and flow of the story was excellent. I look forward to reading more from this author!
An easy-breezy, entertaining and quick read!
GIRLS LIKE US by CHRISTINA ALGER was an interesting premise with a fabulous and strong female character that mildly held my interest throughout. I was immediately intrigued and thoroughly enjoyed the mystery but felt like I was never fully engaged though. I was a little disappointed with the way a few things played out in the end which lowered my overall rating.
I enjoyed it just didn’t love it as much as I would have liked. It was a much loved book by quite a few other Traveling Friends though so please don’t let my rating/review deter you from picking this one up.
Thank you so much to Edelweiss, G.P. Putnam’s Sons and Cristina Alger for the opportunity to read an advance digital copy of this book.
