Overview

True-crime journalist and sassy amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins has scarcely begun her hard-earned weekend getaway when something comes up: a dead body, belonging to one of the world’s most glamorous supermodels. Now Bailey’s trapped at an upstate New York home amidst the glitterati—and any one of them could be a murderer. She’s determined to find out who’s responsible, but her investigation could provoke the killer into striking again… From Kate White, the New York Times bestselling author of Hush and the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan magazine, So Pretty It Hurts is an addictive addition to the Bailey Weggins mystery series, and the book that fans of If Looks Could Kill, Over Her Dead Body, and Lethally Blond have been waiting for.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cosmo editor-in-chief White’s entertaining sixth Bailey Weggins mystery (after 2007’s Lethally Blonde) finds whip-smart reporter Bailey working hard at the New York gossip rag Buzz while dating elusive documentary filmmaker Beau Regan. When Beau suddenly takes off for Arizona to work on a new film, Bailey accepts a weekend invitation to a record producer’s upstate country house, where the demise of a celebrity guest soon causes consternation. Not satisfied that supermodel Devon Barr died of a drug overdose or committed suicide, Bailey embarks on a relentless quest to figure out who and what killed Devon in the prime of her career. But the more dark secrets Bailey uncovers, the more she has to watch her own back. While the prose can be more kitsch than clever in this fast-paced, insider look at the seedy underworld of fame, series fans and readers who love tabloid drama will be enthralled. Agent: Sandra Dijkstra, Sandra Dijkstra Literary Agency. (Mar.)
New York Post
“[A] delicious tale.”
Romantic Times
“Intriguing, well-developed characters and fast-paced action make this mystery an entertaining read.”
Booklist
“After two stand-alones from White, it’s good to have Bailey back in her sixth outing (after Lethally Blond, 2007). She’s a smart, sexy sleuth with a growing fan base.”
Library Journal
Sexy true crime journalist Bailey Weggins (Lethally Blond) gets tangled up in a supermodel's death in her breezy sixth outing. [See Prepub Alert, 9/19/11.]
Kirkus Reviews
Celebrity-crime writer Bailey Weggins (Over Her Dead Body, 2005, etc.) returns for another round of crime in which she gets a mite too close to the celebrities. When her current Mr. Right, Beau Regan, announces that maybe he'll be back from his documentary shoot by Saturday night and maybe he won't, Bailey's miffed enough for some gentle retaliation: She'll accept her best bud Jessie Pendergrass' invitation to join her at record producer Scott Cohen's bucolic upstate place for the weekend. Bad move. A combination of winter weather and a power outage strands the B-list guests in the converted barn; Scott whispers to Jessie that he'd love to try a threesome with Bailey; and, oh yeah, the headline guest, veteran model Devon Barr, dies of an unexplained heart attack. Since it's Bailey's job to explain the inexplicable for Buzz, she's quizzing Devon's agent Cap Darby, his wife Whitney, Devon's booker Christian Hayes, Devon's model friend Tory Hart and Tory's rocker boyfriend Tommy Quinn about what they saw and heard and know even before the lights come back on and the party can return to the Big Apple, where secrets will be disclosed and tension will fizzle—or rather be recalled to its roots. Instead of asking which bland celebrity fed anorexic Devon the diuretic that killed her, fans can noodle over the larger questions of whether a blackmail accusation will get Bailey sacked from Buzz and whether she and her Beau really have what it takes for the long haul. Half And Then There Were None, and half relationship primer.
