    High society jewel thief, who killed her

    Nora Blackbird writes a society column for a Philadelphia newspaper, so she attends lots of parties. She attends one for Oliver Cooper who has been nominated by the president to serve as the next secretary of transportation. Nora dated his son Flan many years ago. Flan¿s wife Laura runs into them as Flan and Nora leave the bathroom. She explodes. Nora and Laura end up talking things out. Laura is mad, but when Nora leaves, she feels things will calm down. The next day Nora hears that Laura killed herself, well that¿s the initial theory. She is found in the pool with a garden gnome tied to her ankles. Nora becomes a suspect. So, she sets out to find out who killed Laura. Mostly she does it to get herself off the suspect list, but she also does it to help Flan. Nora also finds that dating Michael, son of a mob boss, can be very complicated. It also affects her job. She can¿t quite trust him. Is he clean like he says? She¿s always looking for trouble. Detective Bloom tells Nora that there are suspicions that Laura was a jewel thief. Nora believes this to be true because her grandma¿s ring went missing the night of the altercation with Laura. Nora goes to meet with Sidney Gutnick, a dealer in jewelry and silver. Her grandma had purchased items from him but she had also sold some items to raise some extra cash when she was alive. Nora begins to try to put the pieces together to discover who killed Laura and why. I like this series a lot. Nora is from high society but due to the fact her parents skipped the country leaving behind a $2 million tax bill, she has had to go to work. She doesn¿t have many skills so the society writer job is perfect for her. She knows most of the people in society and fits right in at the parties. The sexual tension between her and Mike is well written. As is the uncertainty of his criminal behavior. Then there¿s Detective Bloom. That really muddies the waters for Nora. This is a great, quick read. I love cozies and this is fast becoming one of my favorite series. I highly recommend it!

    more from this reviewer

    brash, flaming and sassy amateur sleuth

    Growing up wealthy made it hard for Nora Blackbird to survive when her parents went through the family fortune, skipped town, and began living the high life in a foreign country using funds ¿borrowed¿ from friends. Keeping Blackbird Farm is important to Nora so much so that she sold some acreage to a mobster¿s son who built a used car lot on the property. She now works as a society columnist for the Philadelphia Intelligencer which means going to a lot of parties hosted by friends. <P>Oliver Cooper, who has been nominated as the Secretary of the Department of Transportation, and his trophy wife Doe, throw the latest social event attended by Nora. Nora is alone with her first love Flan Cooper until his wife Laura catches them and causes a public scene. The next day Laura is found dead with Flan, who was having marital difficulties, the prime suspect and Nora a close second. With her freedom at stake and a desire to clear her reputation and that of Flan¿s, Nora embarks on her own investigation against a murderer not hesitant to kill again. <P>DEAD GIRLS DON¿T WEAR DIAMONDS is a brash, flaming and sassy amateur sleuth mystery staring a person trying to be the voice of reason yet always finds herself up to her ears in trouble and ridiculous predicaments. The heroine¿s relationship with the mobster¿s son will make Nancy Martin¿s latest mystery have cross over appeal to romance fans. This is the perfect novel to take to the beach, a book that is light, breezy, and pure fun. <P>Harriet Klausner
