One of those books that's perfect to curl up with and read on an 'icky' night. Once again, Nora's found herself caught up in murder. This time her boss, Kitty Keough, is found dead on her porch.
The story follows Nora, Mick, and the rest of the gang around Philadelphia's high and not-so-high society until the killer is found. Plenty of adventure between the covers of this book. I can't wait to get my hands on the next installment.
Journalist Nora Blackbird is sent to cover the unveiling of the new Brinker Bra, an undergarment that is sure to change the fashion industry. But the morning after the big party, Nora finds her boss, Kitty Keough, dead on her porch. Nora's boyfriend with mob connections, Michael Abruzzo, is the chief suspect in the murder. Nora knows Mick is innocent and decides to investigate on her own to help clear Michael's name.
This is the fourth book in the Blackbird Sisters Mystery series and the best one yet. Nora, with the help of her little dog, Spike, decides she must trace Kitty's last steps in order to find the murderer. She also receives assistance from her older sister, Libby, who is currently selling adult sex toys to make extra money. Her other sister, Emma, has left rehab to become the current model for the Brinker Bra. I loved the humor in this book and thought the mystery was top-notch. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
I enjoyed this book! Lots of funny characters and the hilarity of the "Brinker Bra" kept the book moving along. I wish I'd started at the beginning, though, as the main character's relationship seems to be building throughout the series, with a major development at the end of this one. I look forward to reading more of this series in the future.
