Rich, beautiful, deadly...

Billionairess Susan Cummings was very rich, even by the exalted standards of Virginia horse country.

The author, Lisa Pulitzer is the worst author I have ever encountered. This book is at least 70% fluff. My gawd, I had no idea there were so many adverbs & adjectives to be used!
The plot would have provided a good author with excellent material. But this felt like Pulitzer got an outline, then added adverbs to "make it hers". Didn't work.

Interesting read. Not enough about the "heiress" is explained, but perhaps that's because of who she is. The verdict was correct, in my opinion, but the sentence was simply outrageous! 60 days in jail for a murder and a piddling fine that was chump change for a woman of her means? Guess the rich are "different" than us ordinary folk.

This book dragged on. I was attracted to the book more for a glimpse of the world of polo.
