OVER HER DEAD BODY - KATE WHITE

Bailey Weggins should have realized something was not quite right when her boss, Cat, invited her to dinner.  The invitation was not unusual but when the boss suggested they meet in an out-of-the-way place it should have made Bailey realize something was going to happen. 

Much to Bailey's surprise, Cat informed her that she was going to take a new direction with the magazine, Gloss.  She wanted Gloss to be more about bliss and less about buzz.  Bailey had a contract to write a series of crime stories for the magazine.  Bailey still had five articles left on her contract and Cat informed her that she would be paid the entire amount due.   

Financially, Bailey did not have to worry too much.  She wrote for several other magazines and her father left her a monthly income through a trust fund. 

Bailey had made prior arrangements to meet with Robby Hart who she knew from Get Magazine.  Robby now worked as the senior editor for Buzz Magazine.  When Bailey told Robby her story about not working for Gloss Magazine anymore, he stated "I've got the perfect job for you".  It just so happened that Buzz Magazine decided to treat celebrity crimes in a more journalistic way. 

Mona Hodges was the editor in chief at Buzz Magazine.  She was not well like by the employees.  She was constantly yelling at them. 

Soon after Bailey began working at Buzz, Robby was let go by Mona.  He called Bailey and asked her to do him a favor.  He could not go back to the building since he was no longer an employee and needed a couple of reference letters he left in his office.  He asked Bailey to stop in and pick them up for him.

Bailey agreed to do this for Robby.  When Bailey gets back to the office, she is in for a big surprise.  Someone had attacked both Mona and the cleaning lady. 

Who would do this?  Was it Robby in an attempt to get revenge for being fired?  Was it one of the other disgruntled employees?

Kate White has written a real page-turner.  This is one of those books you just can't put down.  You just want to keep on reading to find which one of Mona's enemies is responsible.  The book has a wonderful plot with loads of suspense, intriguing characters and also includes a bit of humor.  This is an entertaining read and one that is highly recommended.
