Happy 4th! I am starting my July reviews with a fabulous thriller. I am a huge fan of Kate White’s and count the Bailey Weggin’s series in my top favorite books! I knew that her newest book, The Wrong Man was going to be just as amazing plus there was something special about this book as there was going to be a character named after my daughter in it. Yes, there was going to be a Chloe in the book! Rewind. We entered a contest last summer where Kate had requested readers to pose with her then novel, Eyes on You. I sent a picture of Chloe with her detective hat and spectacles and we WON! I was thrilled. So reading throughout the book I was awaiting seeing her name pop up and it did, in a clever little way 🙂 Thanks Kate. Like all of White’s books she leaves the most addictive cliff hangers at the conclusion of each chapter thus making the reader fly through this book. I was so happy to read and review a mystery again. It’s been awhile but they are oh so good.
The Wrong Man starts off with its main character Kit traveling for business in Florida. Wanting a change of pace in this moment of life she decides she is going to do something spontaneous and fun. She meets Matt Healy, also on business, who is mysterious, charming, the full package. After a romantic dinner they both go back to the hotel and things develop from there. They both have the mindset “no strings attached” and decide the next morning it was a great night and let’s leave it at that. Kit is ok with this although there is a part of her that is drawn to Matt and wishes she could see him again. She leaves Florida and heads back to New York but not before she gets call from Matt wanting to meet-up in NYC. They decide the meet for dinner and Matt gives her all the details including where he lives. Kit heads over there to meet him only to find out the man who lives there is not the man she had a fling with but yet his name is Matt Healy. Let the mystery begin.
The Wrong Man is a thriller of deceit and murder. From sunny Florida to gritty NYC, White takes you on ride filled with hairpin twists and turns questioning who can you really trust? The spiderweb of characters and lies will have you hooked from the first page as in typical White fashion. Whether this is your first or fifth novel of White’s she does not disappoint! Without a question this is my fourth “Blissful Beach Bag” pick! Let’s keep our fingers crossed she is working on a Weggin’s mystery, I need a little Bailey in my life.
