Description-
  • Meet Bailey Weggins, the thirty-something, single-again true crime writer for a leading Manhattan woman's magazine. Smart and savvy, she's got a sixth sense when it comes to seeing the truth in a story-especially if it's murder. Bailey's in bed with her commitment-challenged lover K.C. when she gets a frantic call from her high-maintenance boss at Gloss magazine. Grabbing coffee and a cab outside her Greenwich Village apartment-the consolation prize in her divorce settlement-Bailey reluctantly heads uptown. At Cat Jones's Upper East Side town house, she finds something that seriously clashes with the chic décor: the dead body of the family's line-in nanny.

    As Bailey-unofficially-delves into the murdered girl's past, she finds no shortage of A-list suspects. But when a startling discovery suggests that Cat may have been the intended victim, Bailey is suddenly up to her bed head in high-profile investigation that's perfect fodder for a tabloid headline: Is someone trying to kill the editor's of women's magazines?

    With the spotlight on New York's glitzy media world, Bailey interviews back-stabbing editors, straying husbands, and one sexy, six-feet two psychologist who could make her decide to kick K.C. to the curb. Sporting her pair of red slingbacks and armed with the investigative skills she's honed as a true crime reporter, she sets out on a search that takes her from Manhattan's exclusive Carnegie-Hill area-the nanny heartland of America-to the ritzy weekend estates of Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Bailey will need all her street smarts and some lightning-fast detective work to catch a killer who could end up deleting her name from the masthead for good.

Reviews-
  • Lisa Scottoline, author of Courting Trouble "Sex and the City meets the murder mystery, and Bailey Weggins is a sleuth a girl could love-gutsy, savvy, and even a self-confessed 'shoe slut.' What wicked fun!"
  • Linda Fairstein, author of The Deadhouse "Sharpen your talons before you turn the pages of Kate White's wonderful new book. IF LOOKS COULD KILL peeks between the lines of America's glossiest magazines from the very top of the masthead, to offer a deliciously deadly glimpse at an insider's world of fashion and style."
  • Diane Mott Davidson, author of Sticks & Scones "IF LOOKS COULD KILL is a stunning, self-assured debut. Ms. White treats the reader to the inside scoop on the politics of magazine-publishing, and fills her marvelously-written whodunit with so many twists and turns that I was kept guessing to the end. Brava!"
