In a sequel to New Money (2013), spunky heroine Savannah Morgan navigates New York's social world while attempting to solve the mysterious death of her father. . .though she never knew her father (those gifts over the years were supposedly from an aunt), his will made her an heiress and pushed the children he raised, Ned and Caroline, to the inheritance sidelines. Despite the initial animosity, the three are now committed to finding out the truth about their father's death. They suspect he may have been ready to blow the whistle on some powerful people—but whom?. . .Mixed in with the light mystery is the real focus of the novel: the state of Savannah's various relationships. . .she gets closer to Caroline and enjoys newfound sisterhood; she and Ned are frequently at loggerheads, though he's endearingly protective; and she builds a romance with Wes Caldwell that's almost too good to be true.

Soapy, fast-paced fun with a murder thrown in for good measure.
