Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Nora Blackbird's parents skipped town and left her with a property tax bill for two million, she found herself in dire need of a paycheck. So the former debutante finds work as the society page columnist for a Philly paper. She's happy to reclaim her place within the city's elite-until her first party assignment sends her stumbling...upon the murdered body of the host.



Nora's sisters-sexy Emma and flaky Libby-complicate matters as Nora investigates. And meanwhile, the son of a rumored New Jersey crime boss is pursuing Nora with bone-melting come-ons she can barely resist.

Nora Blackbird, society columnist and down-and-almost-out former debutante, reclaims her place within Philadelphia's elite when she stumbles upon the murdered body of a millionaire art collector.

Barbara Gordon, October 19, 2009 (view all comments by Barbara Gordon)
A pleasant time-passer, with agreeable characters. This first volume is a little thin on characterization, with more time spent on set-up, but could develop well.
