So Pretty It Hurts by Kate White

So Pretty It Hurts by Kate White
2012, Harper
Series: Book 6 of Bailey Weggins

Synopsis: At long last, the "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Hush" and "Cosmopolitan's" editor-in-chief brings back sassy writer turned amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins in an addictive mystery involving the death of a supermodel.

Why read: Requested from Amazon Vine

What impressed me: I love this series. In So Pretty It Hurts, Bailey Weggins continues to be a serious crime journalist surrounded by celebrity gossip. This time she's snowed in with a variety of notable people when a supermodel is murdered. Of course, everyone had a motive, most of which being scandalously juicy. While the dirty laundry is aired, Bailey sifts through the revealed secrets to find the person behind the murder. Bailey is wonderfully funny and I loved the balance of humor, mayhem and scandal.

What disappointed me: Bailey is dating a new guy in So Pretty It Hurts and I'm just not loving them together. She's acting insecure and very much out of character when it comes to him. And he's coming off as more of a distraction to the rest of the story than a vital part of it.

Recommended: Definitely. This series has great mysteries with a slight chick lit feel that isn't overwhelming.

Continue series: Absolutely.
