Independently Wealthy - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel

In the sequel to New Money, Savannah Morgan is back.  She’s enjoying her new life as an editorial assistant at Femme, her beau Alex and even forming a bond with her sister, Caroline.  On the outside, her life seems perfect.  But she can’t help feeling that her father’s accident was much more than that.  Determined to find answers that the private investigator could not, she decides to take matters into her own hands.  And if that means playing detective, then that’s exactly what Savannah plans on doing.  Her quest brings her to Washington D.C where more adventure awaits her, but with all of the twists and turns on the horizon, Savannah may not be prepared for what’s in store.

In Independently Wealthy, we get a better glimpse at Savannah’s new life of wealth and privilege.  But, as the saying goes … more money, more problems.  Just because Savannah now has the means to live a perfect life, doesn’t mean that it will keep her from searching for answers surrounding her late father.  Since he wasn’t present in her life, she’s hoping that these answers will give her an idea of the man he was and prove her theory that his death wasn’t just an unfortunate accident.

I loved New Money and was excited to find out that the author was putting out a sequel.  I love Savannah’s character and even her new family, though not overly welcoming at times, are so well written that you can’t help but warm up to them.  I love, love, loved Independently Wealthy.  I’m just sad that I’m done reading the book, but will keep my fingers crossed for a third book in the series!  I highly recommend this book, but would suggest reading them in order to better understand Savannah and the back story.
