Hey guys! I just finished another book.
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love Kate White’s books. The last one I read was If Looks Could Kill, the first in a series following the narrator, Bailey Weggins. I was excited to start this one because now I’ll have more to read after it.
At the start of the book, Bailey is in bed with her latest flame when her friend and boss Cat calls her. Cat is freaking out because her nanny isn’t answering her door and she has a feeling something bad has happened. Bailey goes over and enters the nanny’s apartment through Cat’s basement to find the nanny dead.
I’m sure you can guess how the story unfolds. The nanny’s death is suspicious, and Bailey starts investigating it. Cat asks Bailey to look into it because she’s a reporter and has a good knack for noticing things others look over. It turns out that the nanny was murdered, and Bailey is left to figure out who did it.
I liked this book. One thing with Kate White’s books is that the setup tends to be kind of similar in all of them – a single woman in her 30s or 40s, living in New York City, is investigating a murder mystery for some reason. However, I still enjoy them.
I was really worried that this book was going to have the same twist as one of her other books I’ve read. It really seemed like it was going to be that way, but at the end, I was wrong. I was totally surprised by who the murderer turned out to be.
The one thing I didn’t really like about the book was how quickly it ended. I know mystery books usually wrap up pretty quickly once it’s solved, but this one seemed to be even shorter than most are.
Overall, though, I liked this book. I was eager to get home to read it while I was out, and I finished it in just a few (busy) days. I’m excited to be able to follow the series and read some more books by Kate White.
