    I won this book in a giveaway on Goodreads. I've recently finished reading the rest of the Bailey Weggins' series so I was excited to win an advanced copy of this one through Goodreads. I think this series is great and seems to grow better and better as the series progresses. This one was my favorite of the series so far. It tied in an interesting back story and crime that occurred 16 years ago. A gruesome, yet interesting story that unraveled slowly. I hope there isn't a long hiatus between the

    Review to come later.

    Quick thoughts:

    This is the first new Bailey Weggins book in awhile. Bailey is one of my fav characters ( right up with Kinsey from Sue Grafton character & Fina from Ingrid Thoft)

    The mystery is intense. There are secrets and Bailey is unsure who to trust. I love unsolved cases and family secrets so this worked on many levels for me!

    Bailey is back and I'm SO glad!!!!

    Even If It Kills Her is a psychological thriller in the Bailey Weggins Mystery Series. It is the seventh book in this series. However this book can be read as a standalone.

    Even If It Kills Her is a psychological thriller in the Bailey Weggins Mystery Series. It is the seventh book in this series. However this book can be read as a standalone.

    This is my first book in this series. I enjoyed the author's last book The Secrets You Keep and I love mystery thrillers. So I decided to read this book even though I haven't read any of the previous books in the Bailey Weggins series. The mystery is self contained to this book. And I was able to easily follow the story without having read any of the previous books.

    The narrator is 36 year old Bailey Weggins (1st person POV). Bailey is a true-crime journalist turned amateur sleuth.

    Bailey is looking for a new true-crime book to write. Her college roommate Jillian shows up and asks for Bailey's help. When they were in college Jillian's family was murdered. There are now major concerns that the person who was convicted is innocent.

    There are a lot of characters in this book. Some of the characters' names are too similar and I found it a bit confusing (Jillian, Julia, Jocelyn).

    This book featured a very interesting mystery. There were a lot of viable suspects, which I loved. I really enjoyed learning the facts as Bailey discovered them. I could not put the book down.

    This book was a real nail-biter all the way to the end. It was a really enjoyable mystery.

    For me the ending is everything. And truthfully I am not sure if I loved the ending. I did figure out who did it before the reveal. And I don't know if I am happy or satisfied with the direction the author took re: the killer. There was definitely one twist towards the end that was very impressive.

    Overall, Even If It Kills Her was a very strong book. You can definitely read it even if you're new to this series. I really liked it!

    Thanks to edelweiss and Harper Paperbacks for allowing me to read this book.

    I've been reading Kate White ever since her first Bailey Weggins book If Looks Could Kill came out so to say I was looking forward to another installment in the series would be an understatement. Kate White always delivers a suspenseful fast paced thriller and Even If It Kills Her is another page turner.

    Bailey Weggins is doing promotion for her latest book when she encounters a college friend Jillian Lowe who asks her to help investigate her family's murders that occurred back when they were in college together. It seems that the person convicted of the crimes is now believed to be innocent and Jillian wants Bailey to help her track down the murderer. Of course, it isn't long until the investigation turns deadly and Bailey may be in over her head.

    There are always the right amount of twists, turns and surprises to keep you reading late into the night. If you haven't read any of the other novels in the Bailey Weggins series, you could certainly start with this one.

    I received this book courtesy of Harper Paperbacks Harper Collins through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.

    I liked this book but gave it only 3 stars because of the ending...it just felt rushed after the slower pace of the plot build up.

    Bailey manages to "solve a mystery" through good-old-fashioned sleuthing. Refreshing read!

    I’ve read/listened to all the Bailey books and it’s a welcome adventure to tag along with her as she undertakes a new investigation, even if it means retreading some well trod paths.

    My biggest issue was the narrator for this book, she sounded much older than the character, with many of her characters sounding like they’re getting over being sick. Her male character voices bordered on being a parody.

    While I’d likely not listen to a book with this narrator again, Bailey’s investigation was interesting enough to keep me listening.

    Argh.

    Weak is the word that first came to mind upon finishing this book. Decent premise, but weak development. Weak characters, a plot line that dragged on, and an ending that seemed to rapidly evolve out of nowhere. Weak. And disappointing. Unfortunately, I’ll not be in a rush to read another in this series.

    Bailey Weggins is a true crime author in NYC. Back in her college years she and Jillian Lowe were best friends and lost contact after Jillian's family was murdered. After 16 years Jillian contacts her because there is new evidence in the case. Bailey opens up a Pandora's Box of secrets. White's writing was like opening a delicous treat. I really did not expect the ending!
