Freelance true crime writer, and amateur sleuth, Bailey Weggins, is trying to get some relaxation on a frigid night in New York City, when she gets a frantic call from Ashley Hanes, a woman whom she was a bridesmaid with nine-months earlier, and scarcely knows. Bailey is expecting to be hit up for a couple of tickets to a big-time fashion show, but what she gets is much worse. According to Ashley, two of the bridesmaids from Peyton Cross's lavish Greenwich, Connecticut wedding have recently died in so-called freak accidents, but Ashley suspects foul play, and she's enlisting Bailey's help to prove it. Worried that she could be next on the hit list, Bailey dashes off to Ivy Hill Farm, home to Peyton Cross's catering empire. Bailey's just getting ready to interview suspects, when another bridesmaid ends up dead, proving to her that these freak accidents are definitely not accidents. Soon Bailey is following a trail of clues that lead her from her home in New York City, to Greenwich, Connecticut, and even to Miami, Florida, where she is being stalked by some sort of mad-man, or woman. As if that weren't bad enough, her relationship with Jack is on rocky ground, and she's unsure if it will stabilize anytime soon.
As Kate White has written the BAILEY WEGGINS mysteries, I have become increasingly more and more interested in Bailey's life, and crazy mishaps. It's always enjoyable to have the privilege to read about a sleuth/writer, and with Bailey, readers get the best of both worlds. Not only that, White has created an array of eccentric characters who accompany Bailey through each book, and make each installment that much better. Overall, 'TIL DEATH DO US PART was a marvelous new addition to Bailey's mystery series, and I look forward to reading the next book shortly.
A good cross between a cozy and a well thought out plot. Bailey Wiggins is a true crime writer and sometime sleuth. When Ashley Hanes calles her to look into the death of two of Peyton Cross' bridesmaids her interest is definitely piqued as she was one of Peyton's bridesmaids as well. Bailey barely has a chance to begin her sleuthing when Ashley dies in freakish accident just like the other two bridesmaids. Can Bailey find the killer before the killer finds her?

Lounging at home one winter evening in Manhattan, the 30-something Bailey gets an unexpected call from one of her fellow bridesmaids from "the infamous Cross-Slavin wedding" held the previous spring. Ashley Hanes wants the Gloss magazine true-crime reporter/amateur detective to look into a bizarre coincidence: two bridesmaids have died, both seemingly by accident. So Ashley and Bailey travel to Greenwich to talk with the star of the wedding herself, Peyton Cross.
When Bailey Weggins receives a phone call from Ashley Hanes, she assumes Ashley needs a fashion or publishing related favor. After all, Bailey only met the woman once when they were both bridesmaids in a wedding, and they didn't have anything in common. But Ashley needs more from Bailey than help getting into a Chanel sample sale. It turns out that two of the bridesmaids from the wedding have died in what appear to be freak accidents. One was electrocuted in her bathtub and the other had a fatal reaction to antidepressants. Ashley is sure the two cases aren't just a horrible coincidence and convinces Bailey to investigate. Before you can say "'Til death do us part," Ashley's lifeless body is found at the bottom of a flight of stairs, and Bailey realizes that she easily could be next on the killer's list.
