hush1Reviewed by Vickie Dailey

Kate White’s new novel Hush is set to be released to the public in March 2010.

Hush is the story of Lake Warren, a private marketing consultant, and her client a prestigious fertility clinic.

Lake is attracted to Dr. Keaton, a new addition to the clinic. Nothing untoward occurs until the clinic has an employee dinner after which Lake and Dr. Keaton spend the night together. Upon waking on the terrace, Lake discovers Dr. Keaton dead. Since she is in the midst of a nasty custody battle with her ex-husband, Lake grabs her things and runs.

Kate shows up for work the next day to police questioning the staff, and she embarks on a journey to find out who killed Dr Keaton– while keeping herself from becoming the chief suspect.

A series of events occur leaving Lake unsure of whether they are related to her custody battle or if someone knows she was in Dr. Keaton’s apartment the night of the murder. Armed with information that she has gleaned from TV crime dramas, while being suspiciously lacking in thought by leaving her ex-husband alone in her home she is remarkably sucessful. In the last half of the book, she finds help in Kit Archer, a TV reporter. He provides Lake with several missing pieces of the puzzle.

While several suspects are presented, you are left in doubt about the killer’s identity until the very last pages.

Hush starts off a little slow, but is well written and has plenty of twists and turns to keep any reader engrossed.
