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.

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
“EVEN IF IT KILLS HER is a twisty mystery full of clues and red herrings that are hard to distinguish between. This makes for a very thrilling read. The end is a surprise, and most readers will gasp at the unveiling of the real killer.” —Book Reporter
“EVEN IF IT KILLS HER has the same light-hearted humor, twists, cliff-hangers, and red herrings that are hallmarks of the series. And who wouldn’t want to hang around with Bailey Weggins? She’s strong, smart, sexy, with a bit of snarky and badass thrown in.” —The Big Thrill Magazine
“A titillating novel of secrecy and suspense, EVEN IF IT KILLS HER will have you hanging on every word” — Bustle.com
“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
