Have Your Cake and Kill Him Too (Blackbird Sisters Mysteries)

Have Your Cake and Kill Him Too (Blackbird Sisters Mysteries) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heiress-go-lightly Nora Blackbird and her two sisters-desperate housewife and nudist-yoga enthusiast Libby and fiercely independent Emma-are back in this rollicking mystery about a sports bar with hot wings and hotter waitresses, explosive political secrets, former rock stars, a dangerous fame-and-fortune-hungry aristo-brat, and, of course, a case of blue-blooded murder that only Nora can solve.

Review:

"The three sisters Blackbird — Nora, Emma and Libby — return in Martin's charming and funny fifth novel (after 2005's Cross Your Heart and Hope to Die). Zell Orcutt, a dirty old man on the periphery of the Blackbirds' high-society Philadelphia circle, is found dead. If the arrow shot through his heart at first seems a tad improbable, well, all his disgruntled relatives are archery fans. From a state senator who may not be as dumb as he appears to an obnoxious, busty teenager who thinks she'll come into big bucks now that Zell is dead, the suspects are legion, and Nora, of course, can't resist detecting. But the real mystery is the paternity of the baby Nora's carrying, and whether she is really, truly, finally through with her hunky but oh-so-dangerous lover, Michael Abruzzo." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

When the tycoon owner of a spectacularly tacky sports bar is killed, Nora Blackbird suspects a secretive politician, a shady former rock star doubling as a pastry chef, and a dangerous aristo-brat on the verge of stardom.

About the Author

Like her heroines the Blackbird sisters, Nancy Martin comes from a distinguished Pennsylvania family whose ancestors include Betsy Ross, a hanging judge, and a signer of the Declaration of Independence. She grew up with horses and books, and wishes she had inherited a closet full of couture. Unfortunately, Nancy does most of her shopping out of catalogs.
