"Even If It Kills Her"

Kate White is the New York Times bestselling author of twelve novels of suspense: seven Bailey Weggins mysteries, including Even If It Kills Her, http://newreads.blogspot.com/2017/10/even-if-it-kills-her.htmland five psychological thrillers, including The Secrets You Keep.

White applied the Page 69 Test to Even If It Kills Her and reported the following:
Well, I did the “page 69” test for Even If It Kills Her, and I have to say it was not only fun but downright uncanny. In some way the page really is a microcosm of the whole book, and I like to think that if viewed alone, the page would entice a reader to devour the whole mystery right to the shocking, twisty end.

Even If It Kills Her opens with true-crime author Bailey Weggins being implored by her college friend Jillian Lowe to find out who murdered Jillian’s parents and two siblings sixteen years ago. The convicted killer, it turns out, didn’t do it. Jillian’s former home is now up for sale and on page 69, Bailey tours the house, posing as a prospective buyer. While she’s there, she takes photos of the room Jillian’s sister was found in, and later those pictures provide her with a critical clue that points toward the real murderer.

The action on page 69 also reflects just how industrious and relentless Bailey is and also how willing she is to step back and view situations from a different angle, which is sometimes the only way to finally see the truth.
