The Blackbirds are part of Philadelphia’s Main Line. Nora Blackbird and her blue blooded sisters have grown up with every possible luxury. Until one day their parents skip the country and are wanted for tax fraud. Nora’s stuck with the family farm which is just a money pit. She takes up a job at a paper, covering top parties and Page 3 type events. And stumbles onto her dead host at her first assignment!
Is Mick Abruzzo really clean, or is he just like his mob family? And why is he paying so much attention to Nora? Nora bumbles along trying to make ends meet, baby sitting her sister Libby’s many kids, and keeping sexy baby sister Emma out of trouble. Will she also solve the murder?
Nancy Martin has created some lively characters in this series. You will get a glimpse of how the uber rich descendants of Mayflower passengers live. There is snobbery, there are designer dresses and diamonds, horses, badminton and croquet. It’s a completely different world, and Nora Blackbird is probably the only one with her feet firmly on the ground.
I absolutely love this series, and How to Murder a Millionaire is just one of it. The Blackbird Sisters Mysteries will make you laugh out loud while entertaining you with grisly murders and hot gossip.
