It has been so long since I’ve read an Allison Brennan book and that was a mistake. After reading Felicia’s review of Notorious I knew I had to pick this up sooner rather than later. I’m drawn to cold cases like a moth to the flame. There’s just something about them. Perhaps it’s the unknown or whatever it is that tripped up professionals. Whatever it is, Brennan delivered.
I really, really enjoyed Maxine Revere as a character. She’s independently wealthy but spends her time helping bring people closure. She uses her own resources to do it and can do things law enforcement officials can’t. This doesn’t mean that Max doesn’t know how to pamper herself. She’s someone I could very easily admire.
The pacing in Notorious is quick but the story is still rich in all the right places. The mystery is fantastic and really kept me guessing up until the last few chapters. I’m very excited to see where Brennan takes this new series and I’m very eager for the second book!
