Nora is once again fighting to keep her crazy family from imploding when, right in the middle of Philadelphia's chocolate festival, her dearest friend's business partner is pushed to his death. While Nora tries to clear her friend, even more family chaos ensues and Mick the underworld love of her life reappears. This is probably the best of the series and they have all been great fun. New characters and more complications left me anxious for the next installment.

Love it, love it, love it. This is as good as it gets. I was a little worried about this series going off the rails, but Nancy Martin keeps all the balls in the air with grace and style.

The Summary: Dead bodies are the norm for Nora Blackbird. The twist is her parents involvement. Their presence makes solving mysteries look easy.The Take Away: It was great to see Nora's parents in action instead of merely hearing about them I really would have liked to have given them a good shake and asked what on earth are you thinking.I do have to wonder how Nora remained normal, perhaps being the narrator has some added perks. She even manages to make her gangster boyfriend and lover appear normal.I was thinking about the timeline of the series. A book a year places them at seven years in writing, but the story timeline only is a year. Maybe 18 months. I really hope my own life is never quite so eventful.

As always a fun read. The characters are fun also

2.5 stars only. While these are fun books to read the growth and development is pretty stagnant. I have read a few books in the series skipping in between. The romance is still the same on again off again...the characters do not seem to learn or grow except maybe teenaged Rawlins grows up nicely. They have the exact same problems book after book. It has not mattered in the least that I skipped a few books. Missed nothing. Hate giving a bad review so will end by saying I am glad I read them. They were entertaining and a quick read.

I fell in love with the Blackbird sister and all of their escapades. Super funny and entertaining, and one of those that you cant' put down. I do hope that Nancy Martin writes more of these. Recommend highly.

This novel really picks up once you read until chapter 13. Nora has a zany & kooky family and she has plenty of family secrets to keep her busy. As Nora tries to decipher the motive for Hoyt's death she has plenty of suspects to choose from as well as try to uncover the whereabouts of the money Hoyt "gave away." Nora has her hands full juggling all her "house guests" and the Chocolate Festival that's in town along with what's happening in the lives of those around her like Emma, Michael, Lexie, Crewe, Brandi, Daniel, Eric, Ms. Zanzibar and Libby. Was it a murder or a suicide? Read Nora's story and find out.

This is a terrific series! The characters are interesting and unique. Mainline Philadelphia meets the mob through Nora & Mick. The eccentricities of the Blackbird family keep me in stitches. I'm looking forward to more hijinks from Nora's parents.

I have fallen in love with the Blackbird sisters, Nora, Libby and Emma. Good story line and great fashion. Good quick read, funny, good one liners. You can read the series out of order but characters make more sense when you start with the first in the series. I am looking forward to the next but Nancy Martin has put the Blackbird series on the shelf for now.
