Hush 3.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 102 reviews.

After recently finishing great a page turner by J. Patterson, I wanted to read something just as exciting & intriguing. This book came recommended so I bought it. In one word it was disappointing. The characters are under-developed & the plot dragged on with needless informtion. The double storylines of dead lover/mystery @ the clinic got old. Many supporting characters came & went & the heroine fell flat for me. Save your $$ people. This book was a bore.

 Overall, I was a bit disappointed with the book, Hush. I give this book a rating of about 2 stars. The plot was rather slow and at times it just dragged on. Towards the end of the book, the conclusion almost seemed rushed, as if the author had forgotten to add important facts into the story and just threw in random things. Also, the writing style was poor. It did not pull me in and make me want to continue reading way past my bed time at night. Kate White included too many "what-if" statements about Lake, the main character, and majority of the time they were all over the place. Lake did not make the best decisions throughout the book, and acted a bit immature/irresponsible for her age. She acted highly suspicious, and in the end I did not care for her character at all.

Forty-four year old marketing consultant Lake Warren has recently divorced her spouse Jack. However, he sues for full custody of their young children. Her divorce lawyer Robert Kotchkiss empathically tells her that to insure Jack has nothing even remotely scandalous that will give him an issue to hammer her within court; he goes so far to state to her don't date . Lake is providing her consulting services to the Park Avenue Fertility Center where she meets Los Angeles based medical consultant flirtatious Dr. Keaton. Ignoring her lawyer's admonition for now as the kids are away and thinking spontaneous sex before becoming a nun, she and Keaton make love in his penthouse where she falls asleep. When she awakens with a nasty headache she finds Keaton dead. Fearing that the cops will consider her as a person interest, which is the perfect issue for Jack to use against her, she investigates who murdered Keaton. However, her fear factor explodes when she realizes someone is stalking her. With the Blond investigative reporter Bailey Weggins taking a well deserved respite, Kate White provides a refreshing stand alone thriller of a woman trying to cover her indiscretion which leads to deeper and deeper troubles for her. Fast-paced once the heroine turns to amateur sleuthing while Archer the detective knows she is concealing something. Fans will appreciate this fine suspense filled tale of a woman in peril depending on no one but herself to find the killer in order to extract herself from the cops accusing her and ultimately a stalker watching her for who knows what Harriet Klausner

I recently read "The Sixes", my first Kate White book, and this pales in comparison. The storyline was ok.....though somewhat predictable. Suspenseful at times but finishing it became a bit of a task for me. The cliche, "don't judge a book by its cover" kind of held true here. (Didn't care for the title/cover upon starting this one).

I have read all of Kate White's fiction and enjoyed the light, easy reading that they provide. This book was my favorite so far as her writing here is a little more sophisticated and less "trendy" in its descriptions of time, place and people. It was a perfect beach read and I finished it in a few days as I was always interested and eager to find out what happened!

I don't read many mystery/thriller books, (mostly because I don't like the whole women-in-jeopardy-thing) but once I picked up Kate White's Hush, I found I couldn't put it down. Lake Warren (why do they always have names like that?) is going through a bitter divorce, and now her soon-to-be ex is suing for full custody of their two children. She runs her own small marketing firm, and she is in the middle of working on a big presentation for a hot-shot fertility clinic. She makes the mistake of sleeping with one of the playboy doctors at the clinic who ends up murdered after their tryst. If she tells the police she was there, she could lose custody of her children. Instead, she decides to find out who the murderer is. Oh yeah, and someone is calling her and leaving frightening messages on her phone. Is it her ex-husband or the real murderer? There is also something odd going on at the clinic. Was the doctor killed by a jealous husband, because of gambling debts, or did he find out something illegal was being done at the clinic? The author does a good job creating characters with believable motivations. Any mom can relate to panicking at the thought of losing her children, and making bad decisions because of that fear. White also paces the action in the novel so well, it's a real page turner. Lake gets herself into more than a few jams, and your pulse will race as she extricates herself. I will say that one of those jams involving water was a little over the top for me, but it was scary. The mystery of who killed the doctor keeps you guessing right up until the end, and I have to confess I was surprised. The setting of Manhattan is used to good effect, you really get a good sense of the city. If you're looking for something to take you out of your day and you have a few hours on your hands, pick up Hush. Just remind yourself to breathe while you're reading it.

I own every fiction novel Kate White has written, and this novel disappointed me. The plot seemed implausible. The characters were not developed. Kate White is a wonderful writer and a great editor. I hope her next novel picks up on the Bailey Weggins series.

It's a light story, easy read and a great page turner. Found myself trying to guess "Who Done It?" after a short while into the book and was pleasantly surprised by the end. This was my first book I read by this author and will look forward to reading more of her works.

This is the first book I read by Kate White and it is a must read for everyone who is a mystery reader. The book really holds your interest from chapter to chapter. There was never a dull moment.

Hush is the first book by Kate White that I have had the pleasure of reading. Let me tell you, I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love it when an author writes a smart heroine. I love it when an author works in hot button issues into their plots. I love it when an author shocks me with the "whodunit". Kate White has done all of that with her new book. Hush was a fast paced, on the edge of your seat, heart racing kind of thriller. There were some twists and turns throughout the whole story to keep you guessing. And the end? I sooooo didn't see that coming!!

This book was perfectly edited. Thank you to the publisher, HARPER COLLINS. I really enjoyed this mystery novel up to page 280. Then the conclusion became based on lies, which made all the preceeding part of the book worthless. Oh well, at least it was a stand alone mystery. Whodunit was a surprize also. I really enjoy a book that is a puzzler. There is some violence, an insinuation of sex, no cursing or religion. The fertility clinic mystery was a good premise, but fell a little short. I paid $2.99 plus tax for this book. It was worth the cost. The only complaint I have about the book is the ending. I don' t like people lying their way out of trouble, especially when it is something major like this was. I understand the reasoning, I just do not agree with it. The purpose of shaving the cat and the catnip fell pretty flat also. This was not a bad book, far from it, it just was not as good as I expected. I am giving three and half stars. For ages 18 and up, chick lit. AD

I read The Sixes last year and loved it! However, this book was disappointing with redundant, irrelevant info. It was rather slow and boring. Read The Sixes instead.
