This book was purchased and read to release as part of Book crossing Monopoly.

I'm not going to rate this, as my opinion is on the low end~but that's because it's simply not my kind of book. At all. Those who enjoy the genre rate it highly; it has four out of five stars on both amazon and goodreads. It is reasonaby well-plotted and written. But the vacuous lives of the uber-wealthy interest me no more than the trials and tribulations of the mafia....which is nada. And I have never been a chick-it reader.

From Publishers Weekly
New York grande dame Jo Slater, whose riches-to-rags-to-riches story entertained readers of Social Crimes, returns in Hitchcock's latest smart, genuinely funny novel to take on a sociopath socialite cutting a vicious swathe across Manhattan society. A Barbados wedding becomes the scandal of the year when the host, Russell Cole, a billionaire art collector with a psychiatric history, disappears off his yacht, and Jo puzzles over the suspect behavior of his much-younger second wife, Carla, an Italian with a shady past. Upon their return to New York, Carla angles for Jo's solidarity, but Jo, insightful and caustic, won't have any. Social life is hard work for these women, and Jo is soon vying for the upper hand in a deadly, high-stakes game with this ruthless social climber. (For Jo, a dinner party invitation from Carla heralds the "long reign of a rival queen in whose court I may very well become a prisoner.") Despite Jo's opposition, Carla achieves an exclusive co-op apartment (which she decorates "rococo-a-gogogo"), a seat on the board of the Municipal Museum along with Jo's resignation from said board, even Jo's romantic interest, Lord Max Vermillion. From Jo's first wry comment to her final maneuver, Hitchcock will have readers rooting for her to vanquish her nemesis.

Released 6 yrs ago (9/26/2011 UTC) at Black Widow Cafe in Salt Lake City, Utah USA


For BC Monopoly, this Black Widow, this Dangerous Lady was left on the wood picnic table outside the appropriate Cafe ~

What is it about Cafes? When Bally went to Cafe Marmalade he discovered the joy of wearing ruby slippers, and now, being a fan of film noir, Bally decided to glam it up and be One Dangerous Lady....

So Bally donned a black 'Widow's Veil,' picked a bouquet, and headed down to the Black Widow Cafe to enjoy a rich dark desert and collect his inheritance.

before leaving the book on the picnic table, I set it under the sign....but thought no one would see it there, as I don't think anyone walks down 21st.....

*note Bally's buddy, who wanted to accompany him to this particular cafe~
