This was a poor continuation to the Bailey Weggins series. I don't recall Bailey being vapid, shallow, desperate or stupid, but in the years since her last appearance, she seems to have lost both her confidence and her common sense and was far more concerned with her dysfunctional relationship and if she would spend the holidays alone than with solving the mystery or self-preservation. There were several very obvious traps that she walked into haplessly and clear clues that she completely missed. By the end, I was actually hoping she would get Darwined out because her stupidity was so painful. Plot had promise but just limped along and supporting cast was underdeveloped and so it was actually really hard to care whodunit.
This particular narrator was not the right choice for the series. While her delivery was fine, her voice has a gravelly, more mature quality that came off like a grandma talking dirty which was very disconcerting. She is better suited to Murder, She Wrote than Cosmo.

I have yet to be disappointed by a Baily Wiggins mystery. The characters are great, the romance is steamy, and the mystery plots always throw me through a loop! It's kind of like Nancy Drew meets the Devil Wears Prada. Baily is a crackerjack journalist who never leaves a stone unturned. And the closer she gets to finding the killer, the more dangerous her situation becomes. The narrator does a bangup job capturing the voices of each character, and her tone really fits Baily's personality. Keep 'em coming, Kate White!
