Notorious – By Allison Brennan
This book centers around Maxine Revere, an investigative reporter who solves cold cases all over the country.
Maxine’s best friend was murdered when she was in high school. Another of Maxine’s friends, Kevin, was accused of that murder but was not convicted for it. Everyone in the community felt he was guilty of the crime except for Maxine. During that trial, Maxine found out that Kevin had lied to her about his alibi and while she still didn’t think he was guilty of the crime, their friendship suffered from the secrets and lies.
Several years have passed and Maxine is coming home to attend Kevin’s funeral. Through the years he abused drugs and ended up committing suicide. Kevin’s sister doesn’t believe that he took his own life and asked Maxine if she would look into it. At the same time she’s looking into Kevin’s death, she is also asked to take a look into another murder that recently happened at her old high school.
Maxine uncovers many dark secrets and lies that date back to her best friend’s murder and she discovers that both of these cases could be related.
This was the first book I’ve read by Allison Brennan and I really enjoyed it!! It was a fast read for me and kept me guessing until the end! I will definitely be picking up more books by this author to read in the future.
I am rating this a solid 4/5 stars.
