Publisher Comments:

Nora Blackbird has made the society pages yet again.  The impoverished Philadelphia heiress has agreed to wed Mick Abruzzo, son of New Jerseys most notorious mobster.  Now Nora has to help him survive the Blackbird curse: Every time a Blackbird sister marries, the groom is bound to die.

 

But Noras superstitions are eclipsed by some ominous news.  Penny Devine, ex-Hollywood starlet and daughter of the Philadelphia Devines, has disappeared, and strangely, her family is very eager to have her declared dead.  When its revealed that Nora has inherited Pennys extensive couture wardrobe, eyebrows rise even higher.  The only way for Nora to keep her name clear and save her sanity is to snoop among the snooty…until she sniffs out the truth.

 

Synopsis:

Nora Blackbird has made the society pages yet again. The impoverished Philadelphia heiress has agreed to wed Mick Abruzzo, son of New Jersey's most notorious mobster-if he can survive the Blackbird Curse. Anytime a Blackbird sister remarries, the groom is bound to die...

This is the first book I've read by Nancy Martin. Nancy is such a descriptive writer that at every step of this mystery I felt I was right there. I could picture everyone and felt as though I was right in the midst of the story. Now I'm ready to read all the other Blackbird Sisters Mysteries.
