Publisher's Summary

After her last adventure, Bailey Weggins is one tired reporter in need of R&R. So when an old family friend invites her for a free weekend at the Cedar Inn in rural Massachusetts, she jumps at the chance to leave Manhattan for some major pampering.

At the elegant mid-19th century hideaway, with its Asian-inspired spa, Bailey is soon luxuriating to the hypnotic sound of water spilling over stones and the soothing scent of green-tea candles. Yet mayhem is mere steps away, as Bailey discovers when she literally stumbles across a corpse wrapped mummy-style in a treatment room.

Suddenly, her time-out is transformed into a full-tilt murder investigation. Bailey hadn't expected to meet anyone other than socialites slathering their cellulite with shea butter, but now she's dealing with a list of suspects dirtier than a mud bath: a spurned lover, a shady husband, and a group of employees who seem to be hiding something. And against her better judgment, she can't seem to keep her own hands off the sexy homicide detective assigned to the case.

Desperate to help her mother's friend, the owner of the spa, Bailey will find herself chasing clues across state lines just as another death sweeps her into the sights of a vicious killer. And this time, the body in the mud wrap could be her own.

Follow the trail of true crime reporter and sometimes-sleuth Bailey Weggins.

"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)

Enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book. Kate Walsh (from Grey's Anatomy)was a great narrarator. The author kept me entranced with all the various characters - good suspense. Would recommend.
