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

In each book, this woman was jumping into bed with every Tom, Dick or Harry that crossed her path...Except for the older neighbor who happened to be gay. Seemed a little much to me. Also, she despaired over wanting a man of her own. I read several books in the series and they all played out the same. She always wound up in trouble because she was too stubborn to take advise.

I was looking for a light, but well-written book to read for relaxation. This totally fit the bill. White is an intelligent and funny author who brings out the personal side of murder and intrigue.
My only complaint is that I read on my Kindle and the Kindle version was NOT well spell-checked - not a major problem by any means, but a little annoying. However, this may be a greater annoyance for me than for others, as I work part-time as an editor.

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 am a fan of Kate White's mysteries featuring Bailey Weggins as protagonist. Bailey is a crime writer for a national magazine. Her investigative skills are so good that she finds herself knee-deep in murder investigations, this case being no exception.

Bailey is divorced, and gets a call from an old flame from a previous novel. He is an actor who has gone from starving to successful, landing a TV series in Bailey's town-NYC. He calls Bailey to get together and share his concerns about an actor on his show who has gone missing...

This is a well-written mystery. I won't give away any twists and turns. I'll just say that I enjoy this series about a 30-something strong female character who is divorced, dating, has an exciting career, and has to draw on her own resources as she unravels a mystery.

I enjoyed the book very much. There is some humor, plus there is quite a few surprises. I did not know who the guilty person was until I was at the end. I would recommend Kate White as an author. I am now reading another of her books.

A few pages in and there's an editing mistake so big I'm shocked no one caught it before it went to print - the character Chris Wickersham is supposed to be talking to Bailey about his friend Tom but used the name Chris instead of Tom not once but TWICE within the same paragraph!! Any decent editor should've realized this made no sense at least when the second "Chris" showed up in CHRIS's dialogue!!! Come on guys...I'm not even an editor or a writer and I still caught this. I usually enjoy Bailey Weggins novels because they're an easy, casual read but easy shouldn't mean lazy...

I've read the previous four Bailey Weggins mysteries and although you don't need to have done so to understand this one, knowing the background of Weggins does help to appreciate this one a bit more, plus she briefly gives away spoiler summaries of the incidents in those books. There's a lot of side story including Weggins jumping between the sheets of two guys and being confused about it, which isn't necessary for the plot but since Kate White is the editor of Cosmopolitan there's probably a lot of that magazine's readers who expect that.

Basic plot of Lethally Blond is one of Weggins' ex's Chris Wickersham has finally broken through as an actor on a crime scene show called Morgue, which luckily for Bailey is filmed in New York. He contacts her with a request to use her journalist detective skills to help him find Tom, his fellow cast member and friend who seems to have disappeared. Weggins pretty much drops everything (a little bit unrealistically as she seems a lot more determined to find a guy she's never met than everyone else including Chris who did) and vigorously investigates Tom's disappearance making her plenty of enemies along the way. Even when her life is obviously on the line she is determined to keep going. Other than the seemingly over the top determination to at her own expense find a guy she never knew, this is the most edge of your seat Weggins' thriller yet.
