Hush- Kate White

Lake Warren is in the middle of a terrible custody battle with her ex. On her first outing with a charismatic fertility doctor (while her kids are away at camp), the date ends with is murder, and Lake is a wreck. She was in the apartment with the killer but she saw no one.

Would you remain silent? I think I might.

The fertility clinic, where Lake is working as a consultant, is a hotbed of gossip and speculation.

The police keep questioning her as she scrambles to solve the murder, and clear herself for the sake of her family.

Something besides the murder is wrong at the clinic. Lake starts talking to a reporter, Archer, who has been investigating for a story, and he is aware of a problem as well, but has no proof.

Lake is terrified, but agrees to look further. When suddenly things go completely awry, it is a slam, bang, shocking conclusion!

I have read Kate White's Bailey Weggins series, but his book is not as "smart ass" or "wise guy" fun. That is not to say I didn't enjoy it. It is a good, solid mystery, whose ending I did not see coming. I recommend this for anyone who likes a good solid, intelligent mystery.

I received this book from Harper for review. Thanks so much!

  1. Although the plot is hardly original, White does a capable job of generating enough suspense to keep us turning the pages. In addition, she makes us care about Lake's predicament, insuring that we will stick around to see how she extricates herself from this gigantic mess. "Hush" is a quick, painless, and undemanding read, perfect for an afternoon or two of escapist pleasure.
