I have never read anything by Susan Isaacs so this was my first experience with her novels. Takes One to Know One chronicles a former FBI agent in her transition to a drastically different life as a mother. Corie is likable, smart, and relatable; especially for new mothers. She holds true to her nature and former profession, though, and notices when something seems amiss about a man at her weekly lunches. She enlists the help of family and friends to get to the bottom of the situation. Written in a cozy, comforting style, the novel is not action packed or thrilling, but I liked the main character and the plot held my attention. The characters personalities just skimmed the surface and weren't too in depth, but were overall well written. A nice, light read for a weekend away.
