Hush by Kate White
Just like my Grandmum, I love a good caper.
When I was younger, it was Nancy Drew who brought out my inner sleuth. While some girls played house when they were little, I played detective! (And sometimes still do – investigative “research” that is – not snooping). Who does my inner sleuth live vicariously through now? Bailey Weggins – she is like Nancy all grown up but saucier. Kate White introduced me to Bailey in If Looks Could Kill and five novels and five crimes later, I am hooked just waiting for the next one. It has been a few years since the latest novel in the series, Lethally Blonde, was published and apparently there is more Bailey to come (we just have to wait a bit longer). But in the meantime, Kate White given us another trail to follow in her thriller Hush. I am looking forward to reading it and if it is anything like her other novels, I know that I won’t be able to put it down!
Here is the plot: When Lake Warren learns that her husband Jack is suing for full custody of their two kids four months after their separation, she’s pretty certain that things can’t get any worse. The upside is that she’s working with the Advanced Fertility Center as a marketing consultant alongside the attractive, flirtatious Dr. Keaton. But when Lake finds Keaton with his throat slashed the morning after their one-night stand, she learns that things can indeed become worse—they can become deadly.
So as not to jeopardize her case for custody, Lake is forced to lie to the police. Having just been intimate with a man who has been murdered and wanting to protect herself from being charged with the crime, she begins her own search for the truth. But when the police start looking at her closely, people at the clinic start treating her with hostility, and strange and dangerous clues begin dropping—quite literally—on her doorstep, Lake realizes that she is dangerously close to dark secrets about Keaton and the clinic. But can Lake stop what she’s started before it’s too late?
