Bailey Weggins, the very clever and the very irreverent true crime writer for Gloss, a leading women's magazine, is in desperate need of a little R&R after solving the murder of her boss' nanny. A trip to the Cedar Inn and Spa seems like the perfect remedy. Bailey, totally full of Zen after her deep tissue massage, looks forward to all of the other treatments. Getting ready for bed, she realizes she forgot the Rolex that her father gave her before he died. She and Piper, her massage therapist, go back, only to discover a dead body getting a seaweed wrap. The body turns out to be Anna, another massage therapist. Detective Beck arrives, and against her better judgment, Bailey becomes infatuated with him, forgetting her tepid relationship with her boyfriend. Bailey learns that one of Anna's clients died of heart failure after she worked on him. Then the spa owner's second husband, who was clandestinely pursuing Anna, becomes suspect number one. But Anna's past also provides numerous suspects. Was she killed by a client who'd been rebuffed? Or by a male therapist who she'd apparently spurned? Or the son of the heart attack victim who blames the spa for this father's death? Or by someone from her deeper past? Bailey keeps digging, getting closer to the truth. Then there's a second horrifying murder at the inn, and it's clear that Bailey's life is in danger. Nothing prepares her for the answer she finds as she finally discovers who the murderer is.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“White…details the finer points of Ayurvedic treatments and sento baths with an inside’s assuredness. And even non-Cosmo readers can appreciate the scandalous twists: ‘Happy ending’ massages! Teenage sex! Death by seaweed wrap! As fun and frivolous as a champagne facial.” Entertainment Weekly
“Fans will find Bailey’s sassy wit as engaging as ever and are sure to admire the skill with which White pulls together all the threads.” Publishers Weekly
“Humor, sex, romance, well-conceived characters, and a cleverly structured plot make this a satisfying read. Walsh’s fine narration brings it all together nicely.” AudioFile
“White, editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan , cleverly offers her readers a whole tray full of tasty red herrings to nibble on. Almost everyone in the story is a suspect, but the fun lies not only in trying to guess whodunit but also in watching Bailey evolve as a woman (with two sexy guys after her) and a detective, who follows where the case leads.” Booklist
“Once again, White’s background as editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan shines through in her snappy dialog, tight plotting, and insider humor. She will certainly hold her own among the many talented mystery mavens.” Library Journal
