This clever and compelling mystery, set in rural Massachusetts, is splendidly narrated by Jen Taylor. Listeners feel privy to the persona of sweet amateur sleuth Bailey Weggins, editor of Gloss magazine, who has escaped Manhattan to visit an old family friend, the owner of a spa. When a series of baffling murders occurs in the spa, Bailey must come to the aid of her friend by identifying the killer, all the while entertaining a number of love interests. Taylor skillfully re-creates a wide range of emotions in this lively story while maintaining a perfect pace. An interview with a man suffering from a terrible head cold is humorous and memorable. On another level, the narrator demonstrates raw emotion that is truly moving. The production reaches surprising heights due to Taylor's excellent delivery. S.G.B.
