Someone had to do it by Amber Brown and Danielle Brown

Thank you to Graydon House Publishing for introducing me to Amber Brown and Danielle. Someone Had to Do It is their debut novel and it will be available on December 27th. This book has already received acclaim as A December LibraryReads Pick and Readers Digest Online, 27 Best Mystery Books You Won’t Be Able to Put Down.

About the Book:

Brandi Maxwell is living the dream as an intern at prestigious New York fashion house Simon Van Doren. Except “living the dream” looks more like scrubbing puke from couture dresses worn by hard-partying models and putting up with microaggressions from her white colleagues. Still, she can’t help but fangirl over Simon’s it-girl daughter, Taylor. Until one night, at a glamorous Van Doren party, when Brandi overhears something she shouldn’t have, and her fate becomes dangerously intertwined Taylor’s.

Model and influencer Taylor Van Doren has everything…and is this close to losing it all. Her fashion mogul father will donate her inheritance to charity if she fails her next drug test, and he’s about to marry someone nearly as young as Taylor, further threatening her stake in the family fortune. But Taylor deserves the money that’s rightfully hers. And she’ll go to any lengths to get it, even if that means sacrificing her famous father in the process.

All she needs is the perfect person to take the fall…



I loved reading this book. Brandi is a force to be reckoned with as is Taylor. There are many sub stories within this story that keep you intrigued. Brandi is in love with Nate, a high prospect for the NFL. This brings some unwanted attention to the couple. We find out early in the book that Nate and Taylor know each other when Nate offers to contact Taylor to help Brandi’s chances at a prestigious intern trip. This sets the rest of the story in motion.

My favorite character in this story was Taylor. She is a selfish rich girl who struggles when she can’t get everything she wants. She is also smart and cunning. All these traits together can make a very dangerous person and she shows it many times in this book.  

About the Authors:

Amber and Danielle Brown both graduated from Rider University where they studied Communications/Journalism and sat on the editorial staff for the On Fire!! literary journal. They then pursued a career in fashion and spent five years in NYC working their way up, eventually managing their own popular fashion and lifestyle blog. Amber is also a screenwriter, so they live in LA, which works out perfectly so Danielle can spoil her plant babies with copious amount of sunshine.
