So Pretty It Hurts

Bailey Weggins Mysteries

I thought this was a great mystery novel. I read this book in two days and would have been done sooner, but I work an eight-hour day too. The plethora of suspects in the death of a super model kept me guessing all the way to the end. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to wade through a sea of sex to read this book. However, there were some sexy moments that actually added to the drama of the story. Even though there was some question as to the cause of death, one had to suspect that it was not from natural causes. The characters in this novel were so interesting that more could have been written about each one. I had to stay up late to finish this one. Congratulations Kate White on a wonderful novel.


Book Blurb for So Pretty It Hurts

At long last, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sixes and the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan brings back the sassy crime writer turned amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins in an addictive story involving the mysterious death of a supermodel.

Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirtysomething true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She's enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she's finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul's house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests—a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the unease. So when Devon's lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: she can't stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon shivered in the woods and pleaded, "I have to get out of here. . . . It's not safe for me." When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target—running closer to the truth and straight into danger. With her trademark irreverent wit, Bailey is a heroine who keeps us laughing while on the edge of our seats. New and longtime fans alike will devour this eagerly awaited mystery.
