Such a Perfect Wife - Spotlight

Blonde. Beautiful. A loving mother. And missing since Monday. New York Times bestselling author Kate White returns with another thrilling page-turner starring true crime writer Bailey Weggins in SUCH A PERFECT WIFE (Harper Paperbacks; on sale May 7th). 

On a sunny morning in late September, Shannon Blaine sets off for a jog along the rural roads near her home in Lake George, New York.  It’s her usual routine, her “me time” after dropping the kids off at school…except on this day she never returns.

Bailey Weggins, now working for the online magazine Crime Beat, is called in to investigate Shannon’s disappearance. She assumes the person responsible must be someone close to Shannon, and there are plenty of possibilities: a bitter sister, an unfaithful brother-in-law, a creepy local motel owner, and an evasive church deacon. And, of course, the husband. Because when a wife disappears, the husband is almost always “a person of interest” in the investigation. Is her husband lying when he says he has no clue where she is? Could Shannon have split on her own, overwhelmed by the pressures of her life? Or is she the victim of a sexual predator who had been prowling the area and snatched her before she knew what was happening?

An anonymous tip soon leads Bailey to a grisly, bone-chilling discovery. Every town has its secrets, Bailey reminds herself, and nothing is ever as perfect as it seems. She keeps digging for answers until—when it’s almost too late—she unearths the terrifying truth.

Packed with twists you won’t see coming and the signature wit found in the Bailey Weggins series, SUCH A PERFECT WIFE is as addictive as it is thrilling to read.
