Title: All the Broken Girls
Author: Linda Hurtado Bond
Lina Hurtado Bond creates a mystery using the Cuban culture in Florida as the black drop and several characters that readers will hope will come back for another book by the author.
The story doesn't as well as others author as the story slows down and speeds up giving readers a little whiplash. In the end the story is a whodunit that readers of mystery and a romance will want to get their hand on this book. Hope for more.
Thank you to Netgalley for the Advance copy of All The Broken Girls.
Crime reporter Mari Alvarez was never able to solve her mother’s murder ten years ago. But when a woman is gunned down on the doorstep of her West Tampa neighborhood, Mari can’t shake the eerie sense of connection.
Now there have been two murders in two days. Each crime scene awash with arcane clues—and without a trace of DNA from the killer. And for each victim, a doll. The first is missing an eye. The second is missing a heart. But are these clues leading to the killer…or messages for Mari?
Caught up in a maelstrom of Old-World superstition, secrets, and ties to her own past, Mari has only one option. Put the puzzle together before someone else dies—even if it destroys her career. But there’s no escaping the hungry spider’s web when it’s been made just for you…
