I'd be the first to admit that I truly enjoy reading books along with a group. When Oprah announced the possible end of her six-year book club, it was a sad day for me. The sadness, however, was replaced with joy as other TV shows and newspapers jumped on the bandwagon and started their own book clubs. While Regis jokes that Kelly's book club could be better known as "beach trash reading," this statement couldn't be further from the truth with Ripa's first pick. Prior to this, I had never heard of Kate White and this is one of the reasons I love book groups....you get introduced to authors whose books you might not have picked out on your own. I'm happy to report that White's book is informative, enjoyable and an overall excellent "who done it." I read about fifty books in the mystery/thriller genre each year and I must admit that she had me guessing until the very end.
IF LOOKS COULD KILL is set in Manhattan where the main characters work together at "Gloss Magazine." The author gives the reader a great inside look at both the magazine as well as the fashion industry. Her characters navigate different parts of the city from Greenwich Village to Tribeca to Chelsea to Central Park West in search of their stories and photo shoots. I particularly loved her descriptions not only of the locales but of the outfits worn by her characters as well. It was like being in a Sex And The City episode but, instead of following Carrie Bradshaw around, we get to tag along with Bailey Weggins, the crime story journalist for "Gloss. Since she writes about crime, her boss Cat Jones thinks she'll be perfect for trying to solve the mystery of "who killed Cat's nanny" and remove some of Cat's fears that she, herself, was really the intended victim.

LOOKS COULD KILL by Kate White
Warner Books, 2002 $22.95 0-446-53023-9
This debut novel by COSMOPOLITAN editor in chief Kate White arrived in the bookstores with much advance buzz. I was afraid that the buzz would be based on who the author is rather than the actual merits of the book. Given the plethora of superb mystery novels being published by authors who are themselves not celebrities, as well as, the fact that this novel is merely ordinary, my fears are well realized.
Bailey Wiggins is a true crime writer who works for "Gloss" magazine one of the major woman's magazines. She is called one Sunday morning to Cat Jones' NYC apartment. Cat is the editor and chief of "Gloss". The problem is that Cat has gotten no response from her child's live in nanny, Heidi, who appears to be at home in her apartment but is not answering her phone or door. Bailey is asked to come over and investigate. Heidi is soon discovered dead-poisoned, apparently, by chocolates intended for Cat. The murder might be similar to the recent death of an editor at another magazine. Could there be a connection? Cat asks Bailey to investigate.
When a celebrity decides to write a mystery the question must arise as to why?
Perhaps it could be to attempt to explain what their life is like or to give an insider's view into a certain industry be it entertainment, politics, warfare, law etc. They might have a favorite agenda to push such as environmental or medical concerns. The hope is the individual will succeed in, not only pushing their agenda, but, in writing a solid and entertaining mystery. Kate White has managed to put together a competent book. Actually, it is quite good considering that writing fiction is not what she does for a living.

Bailey Weggins is in bed with her so-called lover, when her boss, Cat Jones, from Gloss magazine, the magazine in which Bailey freelances about paranormal and mysterious happenings, calls with a frantic tone to her voice. Bailey rushes to Cat's aid, and the two of them soon find the body of Cat's nanny, dead in Cat's Upper East Side town house. Bailey begins doing some investigative research, and soon realizes that Cat was the intended victim of the murder. Now Bailey is searching high and low from Manhattan to Connecticut in search of the true murderer, when she realizes that the killer is now after her. Bailey now needs to stop the killer before she's the next victim of this vicious killing spree.
White has created a fantastic character in Bailey Weggins. She's lovable, enticing, and oh-so interesting. Her boss, Cat, is also someone who fans of IF LOOKS COULD KILL will learn to love, and viciously hate at the same time. A fun amateur sleuth mystery that every woman should keep on her bookshelf.

IF LOOKS COULD KILL is a marvelous froth of a mystery, with a heroine who is the Nancy Drew of chick lit. A true crime writer at an important women's magazine headquartered in New York City, she is drawn into sleuthing when someone delivers a box of tainted chocolate truffles to her Editor-in-Chief.
Author Kate White brings a genuine city sensibility to this novel. At the same time, she offers an insider's peek into what life is like for those on the loftier positions of the masthead at a top magazine--no coincidence, since White, herself, is the Editor-in-Chief of COSMOPOLITAN.
IF LOOKS COULD KILL is good right up to the last page, and I look forward subsequent books in this series.
