After a few stand alone books (Hush and The Sixes), Kate White brings to us another installment in the Bailey Weggins series.
Bailey Weggins, the thirty-something, true crime journalist for Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, needs a break. Plenty busy with her day job, her freelance work, and trying to get her first book noticed, she barely has time for her recently exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan, much less herself. When Beau goes out of town, Bailey accepts an invitation with her friend Jesse to a music mogul’s weekend house in upstate New York.
But, the relaxing weekend getaway turns out to be more like an Agatha Christie whodunit. A weird tension has infected all the guests—a glamorous crowd of journalists and models, including the famous, and famously thin, supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the tension. When Devon’s cold, lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: she can’t shake the memory of a fearful and angry Devon shivering in the woods outside the house, whispering , “I have to get out here . . . It’s not safe for me.”
When evidence goes missing from the crime scene, Bailey once again finds herself a moving target—running closer to the truth and farther from safety.
While I have read several of the other books by Kate White, this is the first of the Bailey Weggins series that I have read. I normally like to read books in order so jumping in at #6 is a little out of my comfort zone since I didn’t have any history with this character. Not to worry, there is enough background in the book that you don’t feel like you have just jumped into the middle of the series. Granted I would have liked more history, but that is a personal preference. The characters are interesting and complex and round out the storyline very well. I never suspected who was involved and I like that because it means there are enough red herrings to throw you off into another direction for awhile.
All in all I enjoyed the book and will probably be going back and starting with book 1 to really catch up on Bailey and see how she came to be in this series.
