Publisher's Summary

At long last, the New York Times best-selling author of The Sixes and the editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan brings back the sassy crime-writer-turned-amateur-sleuth Bailey Weggins in an addictive story involving the mysterious death of a supermodel.
Bailey Weggins, the Manhattan-based thirtysomething true-crime journalist, is in a good place. She's enjoying her regular gig at Buzz, a leading celebrity magazine, getting freelance work, and hoping her first book will garner attention. In the love department, she's finally back in the game with her recently-turned-exclusive boyfriend, Beau Regan. When Beau heads out of town one early December weekend, Bailey accepts an invitation from her office friend Jessie to a music mogul's house in the country, hoping for a fun, relaxing getaway. But a weird tension settles over the houseguests - a glamorous crowd that includes the famously thin supermodel Devon Barr. An impending snowstorm only adds to the unease. So when Devon's lifeless body is found in her bed, Bailey immediately suspects foul play: She can't stop thinking of the day before, when a frightened Devon shivered in the woods and pleaded, "I have to get out of here. . . . It's not safe for me."
When Bailey starts to nose around, she finds herself a moving target - running closer to the truth and straight into danger. With her trademark irreverent wit, Bailey is a heroine who keeps us laughing while on the edge of our seats. New and longtime fans alike will devour this eagerly awaited mystery.

Disappointing story, wrong narrator

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.

Where does So Pretty It Hurts rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Number 1 for sure


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, especially when Bailey got kidnapped by the Gypsy cab driver. Lot's of additional twists and turns, even the subplots had subplots


Which character – as performed by Renee Raudman – was your favorite?

Bailey herself


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but just couldn't do it. Wish I could have.


Any additional comments?

A must buy for Bailey fans. Only one thing missing for me that was not in this book but the other Bailey books was Landon her neighbor. Not much interaction with him as in the other books. He was just part of the Bailey family and he was really missed by me.
