|Plot Summary of Till Death Do Us Part|
Warner May 2004, 24.00, 320 pp.
One year ago, free lance reporter Bailey Weggins was the bridesmaid at her college roommate's wedding to wealthy businessman David Slain. Since them Bailey has not spoken to the new bride because Paige is trying build up her business as the next Martha Stewart with her television show, her catering and lecturing business. Out of the clear blue sky, one of the other bridesmaids calls Bailey and asks her to meet her that night.
When Ashley and Bailey meet, she tells the reporter that two of the bridesmaids have since died and she thinks that they were murdered even though the police believe they were the victims of freak accidents. One of the bridesmaids was Ashley's roommate and believes that something strange happened at the welding. Bailey looks into the matter but before she gets far Ashleye is killed while redecorating the silo on Paige's estate. Now Bailey is really worried and believes her life is in danger because someone is trying to get her off the case using any means available including murder.
‘TIL DEATH DO US PART is an exciting crime thriller because the reader does not truly know whether there is a killer until mid-way through the book and that is only when someone rams the protagonist's car, leaves frightening notes and makes threatening calls. There is an unexpected twist in the storyline that keeps the audience from guessing the identity of the culprit, which makes the who-done-it even more complex. Kate White has written another great crime thriller.
