One of the most exciting talents on the mystery beat is Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Kate White, whose first two ventures into fiction (A Body to Die For and If Looks Could Kill) have showcased her extraordinary talent for combining true-life journalistic know-how with stylish, suspense-filled fiction. Her sensational series, set in the New York magazine-publishing world, features the exploits of Bailey Weggins, a sexy, savvy New York City investigative reporter working for an upscale woman's magazine called Gloss.
Bailey specializes in true crime and human interest stories, and she likes to emphasize the personal angle in her work. But, in her latest investigation, that personal angle brings Bailey's connection to crime a little too close for comfort. The center of attention at most weddings is the bride, but there's no denying that Peyton Cross's passion for perfection rubbed a lot of people the wrong way. Now, nine months after Peyton's lavish wedding, this Martha Stewart wannabe's catering and event-planning business is booming, and her marriage to a wealthy financier is the envy of many. But it seems her former bridesmaids may be attracting a different kind of attention. In the past months, two of the women who shared Peyton's stroll down the aisle have died under suspicious circumstances, and a third dies shortly after asking Bailey to look into the case. The police may be eager to write all three deaths off as unfortunate accidents, but Bailey can't afford to dismiss the case so lightly. Not only are she and the bereaved bride old friends…but Bailey herself was one of the bridesmaids at the seemingly cursed wedding. Sue Stone
