THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Amanda Quick, the bestselling author of The Other Lady Vanishes , transports readers to 1930s California, where glamour and seduction spawn a multitude of sins...

At the exclusive Burning Cove Hotel on the coast of California, rookie reporter Irene Glasson finds herself staring down at a beautiful actress at the bottom of a pool...

The dead woman had something Irene wanted: a red-hot secret about an up-and-coming leading man--a scoop that may have gotten her killed. As Irene searches for the truth about the drowning, she's drawn to a master of deception. Once a world-famous magician whose career was mysteriously cut short, Oliver Ward is now the owner of the Burning Cove Hotel. He can't let scandal threaten his livelihood, even if it means trusting Irene, a woman who seems to have appeared in Los Angeles out of nowhere four months ago.

With Oliver's help, Irene soon learns that the glamorous paradise of Burning Cove hides dark and dangerous secrets. And that the past--always just out of sight--could drag them both under...

A quick, fun read - I do agree with the commenter who said there wasn't too much that tied it down to a particular time period. Murder, mayhem, hidden identities, conspiracies, and a dahs of romance - good vacation reading.

I have no idea what this book is supposed to be about and it drives me nuts when an author changes the main character's name. I closed it relatively fast and when I looked at the description a few days later, I was surprised it was supposed to have taken place in 1930's Hollywood. Then it hit me, it was like reading a comic book or graphic novel.

The Girl who knew too much is NOT one of the authors best. Its lacks interest as the growing relationship between the main characters takes away from the plot. I gave it 2 stars....

Quickly read & easily digestible. Two criticisms: 1. The book was lacking all sense of time period. This was a shame, since it is such a wonderful, evocative era, especially in California and involving Hollywood. 2. The plot was over-full and the romance suffered for it. Overall not my favorite Quick novel but still enjoyable.

Great fast read--took around 4hrs. I really enjoyed this book, and thought that the older time period was refreshing for a change. Recommend.

An amazing new read from Amanda Quick! Set in the glamorous world of 1930's Hollywood, this is a departure from Quick's usual setting of the Victorian era. Within this new time-period we have the usual fabulous Quick repartee, an intrepid heroine, a gruff and taciturn hero, and a mystery to solve.
