The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick
Amanda Quick is Jayne Ann Krentz is Jayne Castle. She is with all her pseudonyms one of my favorite authors. In her most recent book, she is writing as Amanda Quick, which means the book is an historical romance with some mystery (usually). However,
she threw me for a loop this time, because the book takes place during the 1930s in Hollywood, not the regency period.
Our main character finds herself in the midst of a murder with a note left
to her saying run - so she did. She ends up in Hollywood as a reporter named Irene Glasson, who is investigating another murder, but this time at the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel run by the ex-magician Oliver Ward. Oliver does not want anything
to muck up his hotel, nor does he wish to allow a murderer to go free so they band together to find out what happened and why. Along the way, there are explosions, more dead women and sneaky, arrogant men. Irene’s past shows up to capture
her and everything begins to unravel.
Oliver and Irene are good leading characters. They both have scars and secrets, which makes it even harder for them to work together. Irene knew

The Girl Who Knew Too Much by Amanda Quick is a good read.
