I just breezed through the latest Blackbird Sisters murder mystery, A Little Night Murder by Nancy Martin. I’ve read the whole series. I heartily enjoy the main character, Nora Blackbird. She has style, class, and a willingness to do what must be done.
In this one, Nora is finally pregnant. She is adopting her nephew’s child, because said nephew is 18 and wants to go to college and the mom is in jail for murder. Along the way she takes custody of her sister’s child from the father. So count, they are about to have 3 babies under one. Nora is thrilled. I hope she enjoys that bubble bath, it will be the last one she gets for a very, very long time. LOL
The murder is tacky as usual. LOL. Nancy Martin seems to specialize in slightly off color or inappropriate murders. It’s fun but predictable now. Sister number one is having a mid life crisis because she isn’t ready to be a grandmother. Sister two is trying to get her life together but still indulging in all the wrong things. Some things never change.
There is some hearty amusement regarding Paraguay and proxy weddings. I did a little research on this and they aren’t recognized in Pennsylvania where Nora lives, so Nancy goofed there, but it was still very amusing. I won’t give away the punch line. Read it yourself.
℘℘℘℘ – Four pages. Enjoyed it very much. Easy to read in short bursts if you have a busy life. I will definitely pick up the next one in series.
