Review--The Girl Who Knew Too Much

The Girl Who Knew Too MuchThe Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Amanda Quick, best known for her Regency and Victorian historical romance moves into the 20th century with this engaging novel. It's hard to think of the 1930s as being a period for historical romance, but that seemed the most appropriate shelf, and the historical details made this even more fun.

Ace cub reporter Irene Glasson finds a dead woman in the bottom of a swimming pool at a swanky resort, the very woman she was supposed to meet. But that's not the worst of it. Someone tries to kill Irene, she has her own dark secrets to keep hidden, and the enigmatic owner of the swanky resort is far too interested in her.

It's typical JAK/AQ, which means the hero and heroine are cut from familiar cloth, but the Hollywood and California setting, the speedy roadsters, smart dames and mysterious gentlemen make it an engaging read and a good summer choice.
