A well-paced novel of greed and the lengths one woman will go to achieve wealth.

Femme Fatal Perry works her charms on spellbound men, luring them in with promises of sex as they feast their hungry eyes on her scantily clad body. After she sweet talks them into marrying her and taking out hefty insurance policies, she bumps them off and files for the insurance payout. It’s up to the homicide detectives to find proof of her schemes.

Short sex scenes.
Excellent and suspenseful page turner. There were some parts where I wondered about decisions made, but an overall great read. Realllly like this author!
This was a good book, but I gave it 2 stars because of the way it ended. If I had known it was going to end this way I would have never started it.
Suspenseful and interesting. Held my attention, I was desperate to get to the end. I really enjoyed it.
