    1 thought on “One Dangerous Lady”

    1. This story starts out with 2 filthy rich 50-something women nursing hangovers on the balcony of a villa in Barbados. The BFF's daughter is getting married and we hear the friend griping about the pain of destination weddings, visiting other filthy stinking rich people in their mansions, etc. Kind of an annoying story and I almost quit reading it. Instead I flipped open to a random page where a woman was confiding to a journalist-friend of her past involvement in someone's death, details of black [...]

    2. I listened to this audio for an Around the World challenge for the location of Barbados. It was a great look at the rich and powerful people in New York society and how they act. It was well-written and suspense-filled with plot twists and turns and a surprise ending. I found many of the characters quite humorous which made the book very entertaining. It has all the elements of a great summer beach read: murder, mystery, scandal and intrigue. I highly recommend this book to those who love light [...]

    3. Socialite Jo Slater is back in Jane Stanton-Hitchcock's follow up to 'SOCIAL CRIMES' and after falling from grace Jo once again reigns supreme over New York's social scene. However, once again Jo finds that someone else is vying for her spot amongst the social elite. This time it is the wife of missing billionaire Russell Cole.On a trip to Barbados to attend his goddaughters wedding Russell Cole goes missing from his palatial yacht. Not wanting to declare him dead, wife, Carla uses Russell's abu [...]

    4. I found in this book that there were too many descriptive paragraphs, meaning you could easily follow the story line by reading the first and last sentence of each paragraph and still keep up without feeling like you have missed anything.Plus I felt the story line was predictable, therefore not really keeping you interested.

    5. Interesting book and premise. The quote at the beginning "The social ramble ain't restful. - Satchel PaigeYou've got to like a book that begins thusly:"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a widow in possession f a good fortune must be in want of a husband. Or so all my friends constantly tell me."Jo Slater is a queen of New York society. Her best friend Betty's daughter is getting married in Barbados and Jo has been invited to stay with her for the festivities and the wedding. Betty want [...]

    6. ONE DANGEROUS LADY by Jane Stanton Hitchcock is 406 pages in trade paperback form. This is a stand alone as far as I could tell about the book.Brief Description:THE HIGHER THE SOCIETY, THE LOWER THE FALLIt is a truth universally acknowledged that a widow in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a husband. Being such a widow, I'm a little more skeptical Just as I'm skeptical of those who say that doing something once makes it easier to do a second time, such as skydiving or buying a cou [...]

    7. Jane Stanton Hitchcock's saucy, snarky society novels are light and lethal like a glass (or three) of nice champagne. Prospective readers should accept this book for what it is---good, nasty fun. NOT contemporary literature, but a great read. As Hitchcock's characters hop from one over-the-top party to the next, the reader looking for "more" can contemplate the frailty of friendship, the brutality of boardrooms (non-profit, of course), and the determination of dames to climb the social ladder. Y [...]

    8. o Synopsis: Jo Slater is in Barbados, preoccupied by the notion of a new romance with a dashing English lord, when Russell Cole, a fabulously wealthy art collector, disappears from his yacht. Jo suspects that Russell's wife knows a great deal more about her husband's disappearance than she is letting on. Back in New York, Jo discovers that a figure from her own past continues to put her at great risk and that neither the urbane lord nor her missing friend's wife is what they appear to be.Another [...]

    9. I listened to the unabridged audiobook. After slogging through many chapters mostly devoted to a supposedly funny portrayal of NYC "high" society, I skipped chapters 22-34 and didn't feel as if I missed a thing. The only mystery in the novel was how long it would take the author to reveal the obvious. The only character I found interesting was unfortunately killed off. The reader, Barbara Rosenblat, however, was excellent, one of a very few I've heard who can do voices of the opposite gender cre [...]

    10. So much fun! Not high literature, granted, but excellently written entertainment. Pleasurable read throughout. Some of characters' lines made me laugh out loud!Thank God for "" and "Kindle"! I read two of her books years past (pre-Kindle years), highly enjoyed them, and couldn't find any more in the bookstores. Nice surprise to see on line that Stanton Hitchcock has written quite a few more stories - I am looking forward to reading them!

    11. I know it is always a risk to judge a book by its cover but Laura and I were willing to take this risk when we saw the hot lady on the cover of the book. She was so enticing we could not wait until she appeared on softcover. And it was worth the risk. This book was a cross between chick lit and Agatha Christie and I thoroughly enjoyed this modern mystery.

    12. "Read it" as an audiobook. Great narrator. Not only was I looking forward to my daily work commute so that I can listen to this "page turner" but I even finished it. Suspenseful and great writing. Not predictable like many books out there. Portrays a realistic picture of the upper-class Manhattan society. (Book Checked out on 6-17-12)

    13. I really enjoyed this "easy read" book. Since I liked the authors writing style, I looked for others by the same author. I discovered that this book was actually a sequel to the next I read entitltled "Social Crimes". Still enjoyed it but I knew the outcome before I finished it so read this book AFTER reading "Social Crimes"

    14. This book was an easy read and kept me wanting more. If you like books about swanky, extreme upper-class, snooty, gossiping women, then this book is for you. I highly recommend it as a book to read while on vacation.

    15. This book was not good. It didn't keep my attention and it wasn't entertaining at all. Plus the author isn't good, she apparently doesn't have capable editors because I found a lot of mistakes. I figured the story out from the beginning and wasn't shocked by any of it.

    16. Another page turning book by Hitchcock. This book combines the upper-class life--the yachts, the parties, the clothes, the customs--with tremendous suspense and one of the greatest women characters, Jo Slater. Make sure to read the prequel Social Crimes.

    17. Really good follow up to Social Crimes. It's not necessary to read the first before this one. There are a few mentions of the previous novel, but this is a stand alone novel. Very good - and well worth the read.

    18. Nothing too special but still entertaining to listen to. If you can find it for less than $5, pick it up. I give it a 6.5 on my 10 scale

    19. Almost to the end of this book. Loving the life of the elite in New York City. A good mystery. Reads like a made for TV movie.

    20. This is the sequel to social crimes and i thought it was great, maybe not as good as the first (but they never are) but it still kept me interested, full of high society scandal!

    21. I really liked this because it had a who-dunnit kind of vibe to it. Not to mention that St. Lucia played a small role as well!

    22. With humor and panache, author Hitchcock concocts a devious, convoluted plot in which not one, but two truly dangerous ladies play a deadly game of cat and mouse.

    23. Fun easy murder mystery for entertainment. The beginning and end are strong - she loses a little in the middle, but it's worth continuing to read.
