Overview

Someone’s getting crossed off the register.
 
Nora Blackbird may have been to the manor borne, but these days money is so tight, she can’t afford to lose her job as a society columnist. So when her new boss at the Philadelphia Intelligencer—Australian tabloid editor Gus Hardwicke—tells her to work the celebrity gossip beat or start checking the want ads, the choice is easy.
 
Now Nora’s writing a profile on billionaire fashion designer Swain Starr, who recently retired to build a high-tech organic farm with his new wife, Zephyr, a former supermodel. But before Nora can get the story, the mogul is murdered. And now Gus wants her to snap up an exclusive on who killed Starr before the cops do.
 
But solving a celebrity murder isn’t easy with a home life as colorful as Nora’s. Her sort-of-husband, Mick, a former mobster, is associating once again with unsavory characters. Her sister Libby is on a mission to get her diabolical twins on stage or screen with the help of an unscrupulous former child star. And the youngest Blackbird sister, Emma, just got kicked out of the house by Mick—who refuses to explain why.
 
If anything can bring the blue-blooded Blackbird sisters together, it’s a murder investigation involving high-society events, glamorous people, and the disappearance of a genetically perfect pig that may or may not be basking in the sun at Blackbird Farm. They’ll all have to pull together this time, because if Nora can’t bring home the bacon, she might have to exchange her bucolic estate for a cramped walk-up.

Praise

“[Martin] lets us in on the fun with style and panache.”—New York Times bestselling author Margaret Maron

“Enjoyable…Despite the large cast, Martin keeps the story tight as she smoothly weaves together Blackbird and Starr family dramas.”—Publishers Weekly

“Sympathetic, well-drawn characters; plot twists; humor; and the interesting relationship between Michael and Nora keep the pages turning.”—Booklist
 
“This is a don’t-miss series, and if you haven’t read it and get to start at the beginning, I envy you.”—Romantic Times (4 ½ Stars, Top Pick)
 
Little Black Book of Murder truly puts the fun in dysfunctional relationships, including one Mick is having with a pig that has wandered over to the Blackbird farm. The Blackbird Sisters series is quite possibly the best cozy mystery in publication—there is never a dull moment. Nancy Martin’s impeccable narrative of how the other half lives, along with her seamless plotlines, and her strong, interesting, and mightily flawed characters are a treasure for her lucky readers.”—Fresh Fiction
