The Forgotten Girls (Book #1 in the Suburban Murder Series) by Alexa Steele Book Summary

In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse.
Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx.
With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….

The Forgotten Girls (Book #1 in the Suburban Murder Series) (Alexa Steele) Book Reviews

Pleasantly Surprised!I am a huge fan of crime/mystery/police procedural stories. I had never heard of Alexa Steele. I’m so glad I’ve discovered her! This book was a great read! I’m looking forward to reading other books by Ms. Steele..Score: 4/5

The Forgotten GirlsOnce you are halfway through, you can’t put it down. Since I don’t have the luxury of reading straight through, it was a little tough to keep some of the minor characters straight if there were days between reads. I should have keep a character list. I usually take a month to read a book, but I read this in 2 weeks..Score: 5/5

My new favorite book!!!From the jump, this book will pull you in. Making you feel as if you're a NY Detective or as if you're watching a live showing of Law & Order. Thank you Mrs. Steele. Whatever downtime I had during my deployment I filled with reading your book. P.S. Very thankful for the officers who walk that thin blue line to keep us safe.

Great book!!This book was a great read. The beginning was a bit much for me because we were introduced to so many new characters seemingly at once. Because of this when the name of a character was mentioned later on, I had trouble remembering who they were. Other then that, this book was awesome and I had trouble putting it down. 😃.Score: 4/5

More like a novel written for hormone raged teenage boysSeems like I was reading a totally different book then the other readers here. But after just a few pages of stiletto heels, a description of a woman police detective sounding more like a Playboy model, a description of the woman's boss loving her like a daughter but would have a hard time working with her because he would not be able to concentrate on anything but her and finally a description of her "pouty" lips, I stopped reading and deleted it. This book is an insult to women in law enforcement. Well written books? Read novels by Karin Slaughter or Linda Fairstein..Score: 1/5

Too many questions, not enough answers. Until two Bronx detectives get on the case. No question goes unanswered until the case is solved. A great mystery. Keeps you turning the pages until the wee hours of the morning. Has all the right ingredients in the recipe. Insane asylum, criminals, drugs, affairs, murder, secrets and lies. The makings of a great book!.Score: 5/5

Must ReadAuthor is extremely talented and I could not guess the villain as I usually do. Only complaint is where is her next book? Website isn't working and many posts asking the same question. Where is Alexa Steele and when will we see more of her amazing writing? Hope it is soon and available in paper not just E Books. I live in a small town and would love to donate to our library and expose others to her work. Literally read this book in one sitting it was that riveting.

Great book!If this book is self published, and I suspect it is due to the free price, the author did an amazing job. A good portion, by that I mean 90-95% of the self published books I read, are really awful. They are generally riddled with typos, inconsistencies, and a wandering story line. This book has only a typo or two, which you can find in almost any book you read. The story is consistent. The story line follows a clear path. The premise is interesting and thought provoking. The main characters are well thought out. This book piqued my interest and I found myself looking up ADD medication abuse after reading this book. All in all, it’s a well written and interesting book. I spent a lot of time changing my mind on whodunnit..Score: 5/5

The Forgotten Girls(1 in The Suburban Murder Series)This book was much better than I initially thought it would be.
