The Heiresses by Sara Shepard
2.5 out of 5 stars - wealthy cousins wonder if they're next on the hit list...
Poppy Saybrook, one of the fabulously rich heiresses of the Saybrook diamond fortune, is found dead after falling from her office where she was President of the family owned company. Was it suicide or murder? The other girls, Corrine, Rowan, Natasha and Aster are a bit worried that one of them will be next. Long held secrets start to surface and loyalties are tested. Can the family hold strong together or is this an inside job? Or is the family really cursed...
The best part of this book was the description and detail about the luxury and lifestyle this family enjoys. The few really thrilling moments came in spurts as red herrings were exposed and the motivation revealed.
I'm sorry to say that the ending was quite disappointing and ended with a cliffhanger indicating that this will be "another" long series. I can't see reading the sequel and only readers with an interest in a predictable "rich girls" novel with unlikable characters might be interested. I've read a few of this author's other books and this one is basically a repeat of previous plot lines with older characters.
