I like this series! I like the lead character Bailey Weggins including her vehicle of choice (Jeep). I'm not sure why I missed Book 2 as I've read Book 1, 3, and 4 but I knew that I wanted to go back and read the story missed and I'm glad I did. I don't want to miss any of Bailey's adventures and/or sleuthing.

Bailey Weggins is still working as a contributing editor for Gloss magazine and an assignment isn't due until next Friday so it seems the perfect time to enjoy a little R&R at the Cedar Inn and Spa owned by Danielle (aka Danny) Hubner, one of her Mom's college girlfriends. Bailey’s own friendship with Danny began after the death of Bailey’s father when Bailey was only 12. Bailey’s Mom was struggling with her own grief and at times it was hard to comfort her daughter too. Danny has been inviting Bailey to visit the spa ever since she opened it about 3-4 years ago but with Bailey’s work commitments and trying to recover from her own short-lived marriage it was easy to put off acceptance of the invitation. But those of us who know Bailey also know that a weekend away may bring either the encounter of a new love interest or a new story related to crime or both.

Bailey is a natural sleuth not only with her experience that began as a crime writer for a newspaper in the 10 years after college but also as she’s a natural at asking questions. Her questions often put her in more danger than she realizes until she has more pieces of the puzzle or mystery of the crime. There are usually some handsome men during her sleuthing expeditions – either ex-boyfriends or ex-connections from previous cases or new possibilities.

I also love the 70-year old neighbor, Landon who lives across the hall from Bailey as he’s a good listener who sometimes cooks for Bailey and sometimes they enjoy each other’s company at a local restaurant. Landon reminds me of Henry, landlord and neighbor of Kinsey Millhone who was not only a terrific baker but often invited Kinsey to dinner in his home or they shared a meal together at the neighborhood tavern owned by Henry’s sister Rosie.

Time for me to read Book 5. I simply can't wait to spend more time with Bailey! ( )

So apparently I read a lot of books where the main character annoys me but I like the story enough to continue the journey.

This is one of those books. Bailey annoyed me on some many levels but the main problem I have is her tendency to have judgemental sarcastic comments. She refers to groups as negative stereotypes and loves to taut her own talent.

Other than the spa owner who asks for Bailey's help not a lot of the other characters had any redeeming values to me. And there were way too many suspects for such an isolated location.

I did like the murder which was unique and loved the conclusion but I just wasn't thrilled with the main character. I'll try more in the series to see how it goes.

Kate Walsh is a great narrator who really gave Bailey a good voice and it was nice to listen to. ( )

I adore White's nonfiction, as she has a delightful way of writing. No one else can match her snappy, unique style. I found the book's plot a little too simplistic for my tastes, but would recommend it to those looking for some light beach reading. ( )

Really liked this book. Want to read another of her books to see if I am sure about liking her books. As the previous editor of Cosmo mag though, she has to be a pretty good writer since this one was good, right? Try her non fic books out as well! ( )

A Nancy Drew-esque murder mystery for those who have outgrown Nancy Drew. The character even admits she's been playing 'Nancy Drew.' Nothing to amazing or shocking, but not sensationalist or over the top, either. Enjoyable.
And Kate Walsh is a great reader/voice-over person. ( )
