So Pretty It Hurts: A Bailey Weggins Mystery by Kate White (Review #2)


So Pretty It Hurts Reviewed by Julie Moderson

I love reading Kate White books; she has a style of writing that is like listening to a friend tell you a story. I especially enjoy her Bailey Weggins mysteries because she has such great story lines and you really feel like you are part of the story and just can’t put the book down.

Bailey is invited to a weekend getaway at a record producer’s home, with Jessie Pendergrass who is her best friend and coworker at the Manhattan tabloid magazine the Buzz. Jess has a crush on Scott the record producer and doesn’t want to go alone and since Baily’s boyfriend, Beau, is away for the weekend she decides to go along for support. They are one of the last to arrive at the remote home surrounded by nature. The driveway into the home is over a mile and a half long.

When they meet the other guests they find Devon Barr a famous model who wants to be singer, her agent Cap Darby, his wife Whitney, Devon’s booker Christian Hayes, Devon’s best friend Tory, Tory’s boyfriend Tommy Quinn and Richard Parkin who is a writer for magazines like Vanity Fair. It was an interesting group and they joined in the conversations.

Bailey goes on a nature hike with some of the others and when she gets back Devon whispers she is afraid. Baily doesn’t understand what Devon meant before she walked into the woods.

This book has everything; romance, suspense, a power outage, a snowstorm and a murder. I would say this is a very good book but I won’t spoil the book for you. At times, as you speed through this book, you pause and take a breath and say “Wow!” “I wonder where this is going” but in the end you will have no idea how Kate White pulls it together and you finally get it.
