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 mystery with lots of humor. ( )

No one brings alive the intrigues of the champagne set like Jane Stanton Hitchcock. Now Jo Slater, the wily heroine of her best-selling novel Social Crimes, returns in a dazzling new story of passion, money, and murder. Jo 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 are what they appear to be.

More fun the first in this series - the author seems to have more of a sense of the silliness of the whole thing. (I particularly liked the idea of a small intimate dinner party of 100, as the yacht was too small to fit any more guests. The horror, darling, the horror!)

Again, our heroine battles it out with another venal greedy grasping millionairess, fighting for position of top dog (a chihuahua? poodle?) in New York society. ( )

No one brings alive the intrigues of the champagne set like Jane Stanton Hitchcock. Now Jo Slater, the wily heroine of her best-selling novel Social Crimes, returns in a dazzling new story of passion, money, and murder. Jo 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 set of secrets from the gilded world of New York society is revealed in a unique blend of wicked social satire combined with a page-turning mystery. One Dangerous Lady is Jane Stanton Hitchcock at her sly, bewitching, and devilish best.
