Good story. I like a story where everyone gets what they deserve.

Poor old Chester. He thought that he had it made. An aged socialite with enough money to keep him happy forever as a wife, and a young starlet who made him feel young again. The moral of the story is you don't know what you got until its gone--or her rattlesnake scares you to death. Great story--4 stars.

A self-proclaimed Lothario abandons his understanding of love in favour of money. He marries an older wealthy woman who is madly in love with him. He then meets a younger woman who steals his heart and he takes up with her in a covert love affair. While his wife is wrapped up in her philanthropic pursuits, primarily her new serpentorium (snake house – hahaha) and developing a ‘relationship’ with an enormous rattle snake, he is struggling to keep his young lover who is growing increasingly impatient and restless with being the ‘other woman’.He starts to wonder about a possible accident with his wife and the giant serpent.

I loved this suspenseful story. I didn't expect the ending to turn out the way it did. Wonderful and entertaining!!!
