Nora is having problems with her new boss a Rupert Murdoch wannabe who thinks scandal is they way to beef up circulation at the newspaper. He wants Nora to get the dirt on the marriage of a famous older designer and his new young trophy wife. Nora is friendly with the discarded first wife. The next thing you know, Nora is in the middle of a murder case.
What I really like about this series is how Nora remains true to her mainline roots no matter what is going on around her. She manages to keep her family afloat and relatively sane through all kinds of crazy crisis situations. Her lover Mick is trying to cut his ties with his mob family without causing a huge blowup. Neither of them have any money but they manage to provide for each other both emotionally and physically. I love the balance they give each other. Nora's sisters cause her so much trouble but in spite of that the three work together to solve the murder with her sisters contributing in their own bizarre ways.
I also enjoy the references to vintage couture and the upper echelons of society and how it works. This book ends with a big open ending that long time fans will adore! Clever Nancy Martin knows how to keep us hooked and anticipating the next book.
"Are we alone? I mean, really alone?" I teased, running my fingers down Michael's arm. "No dead brothers? No wise guys? No Canollis?"
"No sisters? No mad-scientist nephews?" Michael teased back, slipping his other arm around me and pulling me close. "No editors?"
I shook my head. "We'd better check under the bed, though. You never know around here."
His chuckle rumbled through his chest. He leaned forward and kissed me lightly and I wrapped an arm around his neck.
"I have something to tell you," I said.
"Something good, I hope. I could use some good news." He nuzzled my neck.
"Something very good." I leaned forward toward his ear and whispered, "We're going to have a baby."
He pulled back, shock on his rough features, and laid a gentle hand on my barely rounded belly. "You're pregnant?"
I nodded and the joy on his face was wonderful to behold.
For readers new to the Blackbirds: read the series from the beginning but definitely jump right in. They are a fun bunch!
