The Sixes [White]

Book: The Sixes
Author: Kate White

Review: Phoebe's fabulous life as a celebrity biographer has come to an end. Her long-term boyfriend suddenly broke up with her and she inadvertently plagiarized an article based on shoddy work from a researcher. Trying to regroup, her longtime friend, also president of a small private college in the north east, invites her to teach for a semester. Phoebe dives into her new job but the campus is shaken when a student disappears and is soon found murdered. Phoebe starts investigating a secret society on campus known as 'the sixes,' and tries to figure out if the murder is related. As she learns more about the society, Phoebe herself is targeted. Can she figure out the killer before it's too late?

This is my first book by Kate White and it was really good! Who doesn't love a good mystery and a secret society? White did a good job with misdirection (I did not suspect the killer until the individual was revealed) and I enjoyed Phoebe using her skills as a biographer to figure this out. Overall, a fun, enjoyable read. 

Grade: B
