contemporaries amazing then this blended offering

deals with the glamorous Hollywood of the 1930s-40s, and
sometimes the people there are deadly and cutthroat.
Hollywood big-wigs, actors and actresses like to escape to
Burning Cove Hotel in a small town on the coast to find
privacy, but someone wants to keep a secret a secret and is
willing to kill THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH.
Small town reporter Irene Glasson finds herself caught in
the middle of a real story when she finds an actress in the
bottom of a pool. Looking to raise herself above the rookie
status in a less than stellar newspaper, Irene dives into
an investigation. This brings danger and intrigue to her
door in the form of Oliver Ward.
Oliver Ward is a world renowned magician until a injury
sidelines him and puts him in the hotel business. He
doesn't want a scandal to ruin his peaceful and quiet
world, but something about the tenacious Irene draws him
into her web. While seeking the mystery of the actress'
death he finds that Irene has a secret or two of her own,
and he will do whatever he must to protect her.
THE GIRL WHO KNEW TOO MUCH is a fascinating look into the
bygone days of the glamorous era of Hollywood. Days when
glitz and glamour were expected and Hollywood moguls owned
their stars and changed them to sell movies. Did someone
change a star and make a killer? Author Amanda Quick (aka
Jayne Ann Krentz) weaves an amazing double story in this
book. We have the deceased actress and the secrets someone
hoped she would take to her grave but, on the other side we
also have Irene and her secrets. Well perhaps you might say
there were three secrets because Oliver has his past and an
unexpected, due to a dislike of reporters, interest in
Irene. It is all worked out in this thrill ride from the
past as expected, though the twists and turns will keep you
glued to the pages.
If you loved the old movies with their glamour and drama
then you will certainly love this offering by a best
selling author who seems to know how to write any genre and
please her readers.
Amanda Quick, the bestselling author of ’Til Death Do
Us Part, transports readers to 1930s California, where
glamour and seduction spawn a multitude of sins…
When Hollywood moguls and stars want privacy, they head to
an idyllic small town on the coast, where the exclusive
Burning Cove Hotel caters to their every need. It’s where
reporter Irene Glasson finds herself staring down at a
beautiful actress at the bottom of a pool…
The dead woman had a red-hot secret about up-and-coming
leading man Nick Tremayne, a scoop that Irene couldn’t
resist—especially since she’s just a rookie at a third-rate
gossip rag. But now Irene’s investigation into the drowning
threatens to tear down the wall of illusion that is so
deftly built around the famous actor, and there are powerful
men willing to do anything to protect their investment.
Seeking the truth, Irene finds herself drawn to a master of
deception. Oliver Ward was once a world-famous
magician—until he was mysteriously injured during his last
performance. 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
