Even If It Kills Her
In this twisty, scary, page-turning whodunit, Bailey sets out to find the real killer of her friend’s entire family
Bailey Weggins’ good friend in college, Jillian Lowe, had everything going for her. Pretty, popular, and whip-smart, she lit up any room that she walked into.
All of that dramatically changed during her sophomore year, when a neighbor became unhinged and murdered her family. Jillian immediately left school, and ever since, Bailey has felt guilty for not staying in closer contact and being a greater support to her friend.
Now, sixteen years later, Bailey is shocked to see Jillian at her book event, and even more surprised when her still-stunning friend approaches her with a case. The man accused of murdering her family is on the brink of being cleared of the crime through new DNA evidence. With the real killer walking free, Jillian is desperate for Bailey’s help to identify him and allow her the closure she yearns for.
The two women return to Jillian’s childhood town to investigate, and it doesn’t take long for their sleuthing to cause shock waves. Someone starts watching their every move.
As they uncover deeply-guarded secrets, so shocking that they make Jillian rethink her entire relationship to her family, Bailey and Jillian find themselves in great peril. They must decide just how much they’re willing to risk to finally discover the truth about the Lowe family’s murder.
Praise for Even If It Kills Her
“White builds suspense masterfully, and this seventh in the Bailey Weggins series (after So Pretty It Hurts, 2012) has the makings of another hit. Bailey is a smart, sexy sleuth, and her exploits make for thoroughly entertaining reading.” —Michele Leber, Booklist

“I loved Even If It Kills Her and highly recommend it! Author Kate White has yet to write a book that I don’t enjoy.” — Hello Dollface
This Week’s Must Read Books: Even If It Kills Her by Kate White. “The fabulous former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan is back with the seventh installment of the Bailey Weggins mystery series. Sixteen years ago, Bailey had a college friend whose family was murdered; a man was accused and jailed for the crime. The friend, Jillian, left college abruptly and lost touch with Bailey. But new DNA evidence has cleared him, and Jillian shows up at one of Bailey’s book events to seek her help in tracking down the real killer — at great danger to them both.” — NY Post
“Another long-time favorite of the column, a witty writer of mostly New York-ish, mostly woman-centered psychological suspense fiction, White calls back into action her series character of a few years ago, Bailey Weggins—and takes her to small-town New England. A new, slightly autumnal tone is detectable in this one—Bailey’s still smart-mouthed and funny, but maybe a little more in touch with second thoughts and even a regret or two for past carelessness. But she is given a chance, here, to correct just such a lapse in her past when a college pal calls on her to help investigate a family mystery with her. It’s as always a well-worked out, believable and involving family mystery with a touch of tragedy, and a pleasure to recommend.” —Shawangunk Journal
