Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this stylish, funny fifth caper (after 2005's Over Her Dead Body) from Cosmopolitan magazine editor-in-chief White, Buzz gossip mag reporter Bailey Weggins takes a moment off from tracking celebrity crime to hunt down a missing actor. Her one-time hunky fling, Chris Wickersham, calls on her for help finding his friend Tom Fain, who appears with Chris on the TV show Morgue, a C.S.I.-type drama shooting in New York City. Bailey and Chris learn that Tom had been having an affair with the producer's girlfriend and that he withdrew $7,000 in cash before he disappeared. Bailey's dogged pursuit of Tom's trail leads to his family home in upstate New York, where she discovers his rotting remains. Even when another member of the Morgue cast is murdered and Bailey also becomes a target of a very theatrical killer, her lively love life continues with a renewed flirtation with Chris and lingering attraction to another fling, documentary filmmaker Beau Regan. White's flair for pop culture and affection for single career women make this trendy romantic suspense cocktail an addictive read. (May 23)

From Booklist

Bailey Weggins, crime reporter for Buzz magazine, makes her fifth appearance in a mystery where the premise is weak, but the execution is as clever as it is hot. When former fling and sweet stud Chris Wickersham asks Bailey to look into the disappearance of a fellow actor on his TV show, Morgue, she agrees. Someone else might make a couple of phone calls, but rather inexplicably Bailey drives upstate to the missing man's country home. He's there, dead in the bathtub, where he's been for a couple of weeks. Not pretty. That puts Bailey right in the middle of a mystery teeming with TV types, actors, producers, and PR people, one of whom seriously wants Bailey dead. The pace is frantic, but fortunately Bailey has time to have some serious sex with not one but two gorgeous guys, giving her the option to worry about who she should be with as well as who is trying to kill her. Author White, Cosmopolitan editor in chief, continues her winning Weggins' streak. Ilene Cooper

More About the Author

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of nine works of fiction--six Bailey Weggins mysteries (including So Pretty It Hurts and If Looks Could Kill), and four suspense novels: Eyes on You, The Sixes, Hush, and the upcoming The Wrong Man (June 2015).

Kate's writer's eye has been described by the New York Times as "scathingly observant." The Los Angeles Times says of Kate's work: "It's like devouring a box of chocolates!" Publisher's Weekly recent review of her most recent book, Eyes on You, called it "timely and engaging," adding that "it's [White's] devious mind that puts the thrill in this thriller." Her books have been published in 18 countries. Romantic Times said: "The surprise begins almost instantaneously. Not only is the lead character immensely relatable, but the mystery surrounding whoever is trying to sabotage her holds up until the very end and the culprit is a complete surprise."

For 14 years. Kate was the editor in chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, taking it to number one on newsstands and keeping it there. Though she loved the job (and the Cosmo beauty closet!), she decided to leave in late 2013 to work full time as an author, a long-time dream of hers.

Next up for Kate is the publication of the Mystery Writers of America Cookbook in March, a book she edited. It's a delicious collection of recipes from the best mystery writers in the country, everyone from Gillian Flynn to Harlan Coben to Lee Child.

Like many mystery writers, Kate fell in love with the genre after reading her first Nancy Drew book, The Secret of Redgate Farm, and she still admires those cliffhanger endings created by "Carolyn Keene."

She is married and the mother of two children. She once had her young daughter stalk her through the woods so she could better describe the sounds of someone being followed.

Kate is also the author of several hugely popular career books, including I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: How to Ask for the Money, Snag the Promotion, and Create the Career You Deserve, and Why Good Girls Don't Get Ahead but Gutsy Girls Do.

Her books are great for when you want something enjoyable to read thats not serious.

This just seems sloppy and turned me off a little, although it really has nothing to do with the plot.

I finished this book within 24 hours of getting it and found it to be a delightful summer read.

If you did a search on "see all reviews" by me, you could look back several years and see that I was not terribly impressed with the first Bailey Weggins novel. I wasn't sure I'd read the follow ups, but over the years, I have. I don't pick them up as soon as they're published, but I get around to them.

The writing keeps getting better. Bailey is becoming more filled out as a character. I do wish she'd get a little smarter - after nearly being killed several times, you'd think she'd let people know where she was going once in a while - but she's becoming more likeable.

The overall tone, too, is to me becoming better because we're getting more "mystery" and less angst and drama in the magazine business. I understand who Kate White is, and of course the magazine world is what she's interested in and knows well, but I prefer it when she gets away from it for a bit, as she seems to do more in this outing.

This book in particular has a nice solid mystery. It's nothing terribly surprising, but it keeps you guessing. I also appreciate that it could work as a stand alone. I normally say with series mysteries, "Don't start with this - you'll get confused or feel like you're missing out," but I don't think it holds here. If you like it, you could go backwards to "catch up" but you wouldn't be lost if you start here.

My only real complaint is that this is one of the most poorly edited books I've read in a long time - at least in the beginning. Although I know I make mistakes when writing - reviews or otherwise - I am very aware of mistakes or grammatical errors in books, newspapers, magazines - anything that should really have been read too many times by too many people to let this stuff through.

I've read all of Kate White's mysteries, and I love Bailey Weggins. This book dragged in some parts, but it was still a good read. Her books are great for when you want something enjoyable to read thats not serious. I did sometimes get annoyed by the pop culture references that will make the book dated in a year (she even mentioned TomKat at some point), but it is still entertaining.

Format: Hardcover
With four mysteries under her belt, freelance writer Bailey Weggins is looking to quickly extract herself from her deadly dealings with murder, and throw herself headlong into a relationship that will make her toes curl. But with budding filmmaker Beau Regan out of the country, and basically out of the picture, Bailey has had to settle on diving headfirst into a pile of work at the illustrious BUZZ Magazine, where she's busy reporting news about celebrities who shoplift. When aspiring actor, Chris Wickersham, once again enters the picture, however, dragging along the disappearance of a close friend, Bailey knows that things are looking up: for both her love life, and her career.

Summers in New York City are known as being one of two things: sticky and unbearable. If you have the time and money to escape from the sweltering atmosphere, please do. Bailey Weggins isn't one of those people. Instead of frolicking on the beach in the Hamptons, year after year she finds herself trapped in her Village apartment, working on some crazy story. This summer, however, the story is crazier than ever. Chris Wickersham was a fling she had over six months ago, but now the hottie is back in her life. Starring in a new drama known as Morgue, Chris is set to blow up, and be the apple of every female's eye. But there's one thing weighing down his conscience - the disappearance of his pal and costar Tom Fain. Two weeks ago, Tom up and disappeared, and no one has heard from him since. Bailey just knows that something out of the ordinary is up, and agrees to do a little digging for Chris - as well as her BUZZ editor, who will certainly eat this story up with a spoon.

Format: Paperback
Bailey Weggins is a reporter for a local gossip magazine, BUZZ. Her former friend/lover asks her to look into the disappearance of missing actor. Her investigation places her in danger. The missing actor had a part in the series Morgue. She finds herself questioning and doubting everyone involved in the series, including her former friend/lover, the star of the series.
Lethally Blond is a good mystery. Kate White mixes the right amount of humor with mystery and suspense to give readers an entertaining read. Bailey is a well-developed character. The plot is clever. This is the fifth Bailey Weggins book, and she just keeps getting better. Kate White is a talented author. She created enough "rabbit holes" to keep the reader guessing who did it.

Format: Hardcover
Lethally Blond by Kate White was a fun audio book to listen to. It took me a little longer to finish than I anticipated, and that was because some parts dragged a bit so it took my longer to get back to it. The readers voice/voices are were not annoying which is always a plus.

In this book Bailey Weggins, celebrity crime reporter of the BUZZ is back. Bailey gets a call from an old flame saying that his friend Tom is missing. Since Bailey has solved a few cases in the past, she agrees to help try to find him, and follows a few leads. Tom turns up dead and there is long list of suspects. Now Bailey begins her search for the murderer.

Since I do enjoy some "fluff" from time to time in a novel, this one fit the bill.
