Little Black Book of Murder
A Blackbird Sisters MysteryBook - 2013
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.

SummaryAdd a Summary
Nora Blackbird is barely making ends meet. With a layoff looming overhead, Nora puts in extra hours whenever possible at the Philadelphia Intelligencer, where she is a society journalist. Her new boss from Australia, Gus Hardwicke, has questionable ethics grate to the core. Not only that, he's good looking and has eyes for her. When he adds the celebrity gossip beat to her duties with an ultimatum: report on the sleazy secrets of the rich and famous or take a pink slip, she is in the perfect position to investigate the murder of a neighboring billionaire and find a missing pig. Mobster Michael is living with her while under house arrest and consorting with unsavory characters. Sisters Libby and Emma are up to their usual antics and Rawlins is suspected of the murder. It's just another day at the Blackbird Farm.
