Book Review — “It Takes One to Know One” by Susan Isaacs

There is a lot to like about this book. Corie is a former FBI agent turned suburban mother, wife and book editor who is missing the excitement of her old career. Is she imagining that a member of her Wednesday lunch group is suspicious? Is she reading too much into things? Or is Pete Delaney really hiding something sinister? Corie decides to confide her suspicions to a former coworker and things take an interesting turn. This is all really good. I liked the characters, especially Corie’s Dad who is an ex police officer with a sense of humor and colorful vocabulary. The mystery was also very good. But, for me, something was missing and it lacked the page-turning excitement I need in mysteries. I just wasn’t “hooked” and I can’t pinpoint why. However I did enjoy the book and will read another of Susan Isaacs’ books, which I’ve always heard good things about. Disclaimer– I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
