Nora Blackbird gets the scoop as she turns the spotlight on a killer in the latest from the author of Little Black Book of Murder….
While a pregnant Nora relaxes in her best friend’s Bucks County pool, she doesn’t have far to look for her next big story. A Broadway show is in rehearsal next door at the home of the legendary late composer “Toodles” Tuttle. His diva widow, Boom Boom, reigns over his estate with an iron fist. She has also racked up a chorus line of enemies, so the old broad’s death is a hotly anticipated event. But imagine everyone’s dismay when it’s her beloved daughter, Jenny, who drops dead just as the lights are set to go on for the lucrative new Toodles musical.
Eager to investigate, Nora must first deal with the dramatic interludes of her sisters’ love lives and also keep her cool during a visit from her mobster boyfriend’s mother. Only then can she finally bring the curtain down on a daring killer….

“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
