It’s the perfect crime…until the accused fights back. Brandi Maxwell is living her dream as an intern at the prestigious Manhattan fashion house Simon Van Doren. Except “living the dream” looks more like scrubbing puke out of couture dresses worn by hard-partying runway models and putting up with constant microaggressions from her white colleagues. Still, she can’t help but fangirl over Simon’s it-girl influencer daughter, Taylor. Until one night at a glamorous Van Doren party, when Brandi overhears something she shouldn’t have, shattering her life—and inextricably intertwining her fate with Taylor’s. Taylor Van Doren has everything…and is this close to losing it all. Her horrible father—who, as far as she’s concerned, is responsible for her mother’s death—has threatened to donate her entire inheritance to a wildlife charity if she fails her next drug test. And to make matters worse, he’s about to marry someone who’s practically Taylor’s own age, further jeopardizing her stake in her father’s fortune. Taylor wants the money that’s rightfully hers. Wouldn’t it be terrible if something happened to Simon? All she needs is the perfect person to take the fall for it… Sharp, fresh and riveting, Someone Had to Do It is an adrenaline-filled page-turner about privilege that will protect itself at all costs and what happens when you contest that privilege—perfect for fans of Such a Fun Age and When No One Is Watching.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A dark and riveting page-turner with an intelligent twist.” Nadine Matheson, author of The Jigsaw Man
“A disturbing peek into the world of privilege. Someone Had to Do It is a tense page-turner that had me yelling out loud at the characters.” Lucinda Berry, author of The Best of Friends
“Amber and Danielle Brown’s debut is a juicy, brilliant treat of a thriller that combines sexy fashion-world glamour with salient points about privilege, racism, and the corrosive effects of extreme wealth. Somehow, Someone Had to Do It manages to be both a scathing critique of our late-stage capitalist hellscape, and the perfect mental escape from it. I couldn’t put it down!” Layne Fargo, author of They Never Learn
