Marilyn LIVES!!… No, she is NOT walking down the street with Elvis in Philly looking to buy a good cheesesteak….Elvis is NOT with us and if he was.. Would he and Marilyn HONESTLY be looking for the best cheesesteak???
What She Knew is a fiction of a What IF! book …. What If Marilyn had not died? What If she was saved and hidden away?? What if the reason someone tried to kill her was because of What She Knew……????
What She Knew by authors K. R. Hughes and T. L. Burns is a work of fiction with a lot of true life intertwined into it. These girls KNOW how to tell a story! In this story Marilyn Doesn’t die… Bobby Kennedy and Peter Lawford save her and replace her with another Marilyn… WHY? Because Marilyn is their friend and she has some secrets that they ALL need to find in order to save the President.
You may think this is a total thriller book, but it’s not. We have romance, Bobby Kennedy Loves his wife Ethel and it shows in all parts of this novel. We also have some comedy! Rose Kennedy lends so much comedy to this novel and I can SO relate to her feelings and attitudes towards her family…
Rose may not seem to be one of the main characters in this book because it revolves around Marilyn, and her fight to be heard and understood in the possible assignation of President Kennedy, but these ladies figured out what works for a book. What works are believable characters and what we all want in the end, intrigue, mystery, and romance.
You can find this and so much MORE in What She Knew. The characters are fully developed, from the lowest to the highest. I feel what they ALL feel. I want to run out and beat LBJ with a stick, how DARE he do what he did!! But on the same note I want to Hug Jackie and tell her I feel your pain.
Kim and Tami do their best to take us into the nitty gritty of the seamier side of politics. They show us what *could* have happened, had Marilyn not died, and What She might have known to get her killed. From there the story unravels slowly but surely….Marilyn gets pissed and goes to her own funeral!!?? What’s the fallout from that?
As time grows closer and closer to the assignation of the President the questions remain. Will Bobby and Peter figure out the clues..? Will Marilyn give them everything they need to figure out this deadly plot? You are gonna have to read this 5 star page turner to find out!!
