From Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Pretty Little Liars, comes The Heiresseśђؤa novel about the Saybrooks, a diamond family blessed with beauty and fortune yet plagued by a string of tragic and mysterious deaths. The only thing more flawless than a Saybrooḱђةs solitaire is the family behind the diamond empire. Beauties, entrepreneurs, debutantes, and mavens, the Saybrooks are the epitome of high society. Anyone would kill to be one of them. But be careful what you wish for, because if you were a Saybrook, yoúђةd be haunted by secrets and plagued by a dark streak of luck. Tragedy strikes the prominent family yet again on a beautiful morning in May when thirty-four-year-old Poppy, the most remarkable Saybrook of them all, flings herself from the window of her office. Everyone is shocked that someone so perfect would end her own liféђؤuntil her cousins receive an ominous warning: One heiress down, four to go. Was it suicide... or murder?

Her older sister, Corrine, whose meticulously planned future is about to come crashing down around her?

This novel kept me on my toes trying to figure out who the murderer is.

Check out my review of "The Heiresses" on my blog:

If anyone is looking for a romance/mystery/drama novel, here it is! However, I would advise readers to be above the age of 18, as I believe this book is an adult piece, and it does have some pretty intense parts. I don't know about anyone else, but I found the mystery almost a tiny bit predictable. It seemed that right off the bat too many suspects were assumingly eliminated, which was definitely suspicious. The romance parts were okay, just not the best that I have read in a long time. I think I prefer this author's other series: The Lying Game, a lot better. 3.5/5 stars

I really liked this book! It was great, and the chapters were cool. It did take some time to pick up, and the ending was kinda cheesy, with all that villain monologue and stuff. But that doesn't change it for what it is: an awesome read!

This book is great for a fun, meaningless summer read. Some of the dialogue is beyond cheesy and almost cringeworthy, and the last couple chapters were rushed and then boring. I still enjoyed it though. if you want a mindless guilty pleasure, then this is it.

I think this is more of an adult book by Sara Shepard and not a YA mystery. All the characters are in their 20s with spouses, kids, or with college degrees already. No teen drama. I really did enjoy this book. The beginning was a bit confusing- you are introduced to so many characters all at once. getting past that was daunting but the mystery quickly sucked me in and kept me guessing up to the very end!

This entertaining book by Sara Shepard about a rich family kept you guessing until the end. It seems as though there will be a sequel.
