So Pretty It Hurts: A Bailey Weggins Mystery

Kate White. Harper, $24.99 (336p) ISBN 978-0-06-157660-7

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.
