BOOK REVIEW

HUSH by Kate White
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Feb. 23, 2010

"Despite the menacing damsel-in-distress prologue, thriftily repeated verbatim in chapter 28, both the mystery and the killer are too lightweight to vex your sleep. Job No. 1 here is multiplying suspicions, not resolving them."
White shelves hard-used series heroine Bailey Weggins (Lethally Blond, 2007, etc.), who could certainly use a break, to create just as much havoc for another New York professional who wants to have it all, except for the corpse. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

EYES ON YOU by Kate White
FICTION & LITERATURE
