Book Notices | No One Needs to Know by Kevin O'Brien

Kevin O'Brien, No One Needs to Know

  Amazon  

Laurie Trotter is a widowed mother who's being harassed by an old flame's scary, cult-leader-type brother. In escaping from him--while also pursuing her culinary career--she gets wrapped up in another dangerous situation, a double homicide apparently inspired by a decades-old Manson-style slaying in Seattle. And Laurie's new boss, whose job offer looked like it would be Laurie's salvation, may not be as innocent as she seems.

This book took me an unconscionably long time to read because I've been busy with other things. Usually when this happens I have a hard time remembering what's been going on in a book, and I lose interest. But this time I always managed to slip right back into the story, without having to refresh my memory. I think this "stickiness" must be a positive quality, a sign that something's right with the book's plot. I was never really worried for Laurie's safety while reading, so it wasn't an edge-of-your-seat thriller, but I did enjoy it and will be on the lookout for more by the author.
