A Blackbird Sisters Mystery

A good friend, who shares a love of mysteries, gave me the first title in the Blackbird Sisters Mystery series last week. Called How to Murder a Millionaire, it's all about great clothes, men, and what's going on in Philadelphia's upper class Main Line. (This is not to be confused with the 1990 Joan Rivers movie of the same title.)

Emma, Nora, and Libby have some sibling rivalry going on as well as embarrassment that their parents have flown the country to avoid the tax collectors leaving little behind for the formerly well-to-do sisters. Nora finds a job as a society page columnist but at her first assigment she stumbles on the murdered body of the host, a family friend and wealthy art collector.

Looks like there are seven titles now if this is your kind of story. I enjoyed it because of the references to Philadelphia where I grew up. Interesting characters and clever dialogue helps make the book an enjoyable, light read for those looking for cozys with a bit of romance.

Check out more about the author, Nancy Martin, and her mysteries at her website.
