A witty, fast-paced ride up and down the social ladder with a determined woman wronged by a cheating husband who rights herself with a vengeance, now in mass market.
Murder was never my goal in life. I'm a very sentimental person at heart. I cry in old movies. I love animals and children. So if anyone had told me five years ago that I could have willfully and with malice aforethought killed a fellow human being, I would have said they were crazy. But life has surprises in store for all of us... Jo Slater is a grand dame of New York society; some say the grandest. But she is about to be dethroned.
Her wealthy husband of twenty years dies under strange circumstances and leaves his entire fortune to a mysterious French countess. Sliding down the social ladder faster than you can say "Versace," Jo discovers she has been the victim of a plot and decides to get some very sweet revenge. Your days are numbered, Countess!
