The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Girl Who Knew Too Much is a fast-paced whodunit set in the golden age of Hollywood. Irene Glasson has stumbled upon a murder scene at the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel. But this isn't the first murder scene Irene has had to deal with. As a novice reporter, it is up to her to figure out what happened, enlisting a cast of characters from the hotel to do it.
Historical settings can sometimes be tricky, but Amanda Quick has a good grasp on Hollywood and the 1930s. There are just enough references to the time and place to keep you in history without throwing on so much detail that the plot gets lost. The primary storyline with the Hollywood star and his potentially sordid past was great, but the secondary storyline of Irene past seemed to end a little abruptly, a little to easy. Other than that, it was a fun read and I would love to check out more from this author.
