No Way to Kill A Lady
A Blackbird Sisters MysteryBook - 2012
For richer, for poorer...
Nora Blackbird, the Bucks County ex-debutante with a haute couture wardrobe, a hot job as a glamorous society columnist and a stone cold bank account, might finally have her own life just right, but everyone around her is going down in flames. Her sister Libby seems destined to be the lead character in a tabloid sex scandal. Her sister Emma is expecting a mysterious love child. Her best friend, Lexie Paine, is serving time in the slammer. And now her mobbed-up boyfriend, Mick Abruzzo--who might actually be her husband--is conducting clandestine capers from Blackbird Farm while under house arrest. What's a good girl to do?
Find a killer, that's what! Word arrives that the sisters' great aunt, Madeleine Blackbird, has died in a volcanic eruption on an Indonesian island and left her fabulous country estate, worth millions, to the three of them. But when the Blackbird sisters show up to claim their windfall, they find the house in a state of disheartening decay and all of Madeleine's to-die-for treasures gone. Worse, the mansion has been hiding a grisly secret: the body of a woman who died there many years ago. All the evidence points to a high society murder...

SummaryAdd a Summary
When a skeleton is found locked in the elevator of a mansion that the Blackbird sisters have recently inherited from their Aunt Madeleine, many suspect an accidental death due to lack of electricity. But Nora smells foul play, especially when the mansions treasures and artwork are found missing. Nora's special bond with her benevolent aunt spurs her to seek the truth and bring a killer to justice while trying to keep her sisters in line. Emma is expecting a mysterious love child and Libby is involved in a tabloid scandal. Michael is sidelined while under house arrest at the Blackbird Farm and is as naughty and distracting as ever.
