At long last, the New York Times bestselling author of The Sixes and the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan brings back the sassy crime writer turned amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins in an addictive story involving the mysterious death of a supermodel.

Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirtysomething true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She's enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she's finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul's house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests—a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the unease. So when Devon's lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: she can't stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon shivered in the woods and pleaded, "I have to get out of here. . . . It's not safe for me." When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target—running closer to the truth and straight into danger. With her trademark irreverent wit, Bailey is a heroine who keeps us laughing while on the edge of our seats. New and longtime fans alike will devour this eagerly awaited mystery.

    " Not a lot to this book. Not a lot to say. 2.5 stars "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen | 1/25/2014

    " Loved this book and really all of her books. Super fast read, hard to put down, because I just had to know who the killer was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ed | 1/22/2014

    " Probably the best of Kate White's mysteries. The mystery was fun, the romantic up and downs of our heroine were bland and contrived, set against a New York backdrop of affluence and money that already seems to be fading. Not necessarily in the real sense but the glamorous sense. Maybe I'm tired of clothing labels. But, that said, again it's a good mystery for the winter months. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erica | 1/22/2014

    " Modern day version of a country house murder - a group of people, most of whom are connected in some way; snowed in so no-one can leave; knowing that one of the guests is a murderer. Bailey Wiggins is the main character, a true-crime journalist who writes for a trashy celebrity magazine (likely? I don't think so)and keeps investigating until she solves the crime. I didn't have empathy with her character because I found her too pushy but I guess that's a characteristic needed by a journalist like that. I was pleased that by the end of the novel she left the magazine and has gone freelance because it opens up the potential for future stories. Good read. "

    " Good.. But I didn't connect with any of the characters. Reminded me of modern day agatha Christie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 1/13/2014

    " Sorry to see that this is the last one in this series (so far). I've become very fond of Baily Weggins and look forward to more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy Hesse | 1/11/2014

    " I've enjoyed the Bailey Weggins series until now. This one, not so much. I spent the entire book wondering how anyone supposedly so brilliant could be that incredibly stupid, continually putting herself knowingly in harms way. And the whole premise of this one was just....odd...for lack of a better word. Very disappointed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather Riehl | 1/8/2014

    " Very good mystery book. Definitely going to read the others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carole | 1/4/2014

    " This was really a 3 1/2. Not my favorite of hers, but worth the read. "

    " journalist, NY, fashion/recording industries, wealthy people "

    " Pretty good snack reading. The literary equivalent of decent potato chips. "

    " Will be looking for the previous books - well written and kept me guessing til the end "

    " I lost interest about a third of the way through but trudged on for the ending. Weird twist, but I was glad it was over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 5/11/2013

    " It was nice to have Bailey Weggins back again but I was a little disappointed. It just wasn't as good as the rest of the series. I'm not even quite sure how to explain why. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 4/22/2013

    " This book was no where near as suspensful as her last, "The Sixes." A much slower, lighter story. Still good enough to finish, but definately not a page-turner. I'll probably still read her books, but they may take a lower priority on my list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marnie Meisner | 12/3/2012

    " while everyone had a motive for this murder, I am surprised at how the actual one who did it, was able to do so much, seeing that it was a woman. ok read "

    " Her books are fun, girls reads! "

    " The newest Bailey Weggins mystery didn't disappoint. She's just as smart, sexy and headstrong as ever! I really enjoyed it and hope there are more B. W. adventures to come! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tami | 7/7/2012

    " I had never read any books in this series before, but I'm glad I read this one. Light and easy to read. It kept my interest. Even though I read it backwards, I will most definitely read the others in the Bailey Weggins series. "
