I liked the ending much better than the beginning or the middle. However this ending left me dangling and although I know who done it...I don't know if justice was done.

When Rush Strawcutter, the husband of wealthy dogfood heiress, is found bludgeoned to death in a horse stall at an exclusive hunt club, Nora Blackbird is as surprised as anyone. Another Blackbird sisters murder mystery. An enjoyable read.

I love the Nora Blackbird series. Her dog, her sister and her on again/off again boyfriend are all a hoot and will bring lots of laughs. This is the third of a trilogy wherein her sister is the suspect of a murder. This is best read after How to Murder a Millionaire and Dead Girls Don't Wear Diamonds.

3rd in the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries. With each sucessive book Martin's writing improves and the story lines become more complex. This one had some elements of sadness that weren't present in the first two in the series. Nora's life becomes more emotionally complex and she has some heartwrenching moments to deal with. This one seemed to move away from the light, fun attitude of 'How To Murder a Millionaire' and reach towards a more solid mystery style.

Still more of the funny Blackbird sisters. Nora, her straight-and-narrow driver (she faints and cannot have a license!), her wacky sisters, her grandmother's vintage couture clothing, and one of the best and most mysterious leading men in quite a few years: the sexy Mick, son of a Mafia don...very enjoyable mysteries.

currently reading (10/20/05). I started reading this series because I liked the title of the first one. I am now addicted to the series. They are quick fun reads. No gory descriptive details of the murder, it is a very cozy murder/mystery series.

I really enjoy this series... the ladies involved are interesting but not over-the-top weird like you sometimes get in novels trying to be funny. This is gentle, pleasant reading with amusing incidents, a good solid mystery story, and fun characters. Highly recommended.

While Nora Blackbird is covering the annual Fox Hunt Breakfast at an exclusive club for the local newspaper, she is shocked to hear that Rush Strawcutter, husband of a wealthy heiress, has been murdered in a horse stall. She is even more alarmed when she finds her sister, Emma, unconscious and bruised nearby. All evidence points to Emma as the culprit. Working to prove Emma's innocence, Nora uncovers several secrets of Philadelphia's high society...secrets that could get her killed.

The third book in Nancy Martin's Blackbird Sisters series is a nice cozy mystery with a lot of humor. Nora gets help from childhood friend Hadley Pinkham, crazy older sister Libby, and sometime boyfriend Michael Abruzzo. But her new puppy, Spike, is the star of this book. He is described as the offspring of her neighbor's beloved rat terrier-poodle-rattlesnake mix and a legendary mongrel that has been featured on Animal Control's most wanted list for two years. My rating: 4 Stars.

Nora Blackbird is a Philadelphia former debutant who dresses in grandmama's couture classics to cover Society events and uncover Society murders while dealing with her parent's delinquent tax bill, her eccentric sisters, and the son of one of the top NJ mobster. These are great books with a touch of whimy and humor.
