Author: Nancy Martin
"Giving up my socialite life to get a real job writing a society column for a Philadelphia newspaper hasn't worked out as well as I had hoped. The developers want to turn the Blackbird estate into an outlet mall. My eccentric sisters are convinced I need a dog, a baby... or a keeper. And now I'm falling hard for a Jersey tough g...  more »

When a high society jewel thief winds up drowned at the bottom of a pool with a tacky garden gnome tied to her ankles, Nora must swing into action to save her old flame, Flan Cooper, from a murder charge. But then a politically ambitious millionaire with hushed-up secrets, a dotty grande-dame with a penchant for polo teams, and a cat fancier who keeps a gun with his silver tea set all steer suspicion onto Nora herself. It's enough to make the blue bloods turn pale! Nora must find the killer on her own, or risk trading her grandmother's couture for an orange jumpsuit. All in an ex-debutante's day's work, Nora. All in a day's work.

The 2nd in the Blackbird Sisters Mysteries. Very well done. I enjoyed this even more than the first one. It was nice to see the characters develop further, especially the relationship between Nora & Michael.

I picked this up along with a bunch of other books as part of my New Year's Resolution to make more time for myself. Not my cup of tea when it comes to mysteries. Too much focus on fashion and high society characters that I couldn't get into but I have other friends who love the Blackbird Sisters series of mysteries.

The death was ruled as a suicide...but high society reporter Nora Blackbird finds that hard to believe. The dead woman is Laura Cooper, a woman who stole jewels from her friends at various charity functions. Nobody liked her, including her husband and family. When the death starts looking like murder, everyone looks to the husband, Flan Cooper, as the culprit. But Nora knows that her old college boyfriend would never kill anybody. Now she must prove it.

This was a nice cozy romance with some humor. I liked it better than the first book in the series. My rating: 4 Stars.

I thought I would give the series a try. Some of the reviews I read compared the series favorably to Janet Evanovich. In reality the series is readable, but not very funny with very little depth in the characters. A decent series to pass the time, but not if you are looking for something with meat in it. These books are okay bedtime reading in that they will not cause you to have bad dreams--or good ones either.
