2010 book 136

Nancy Martin's How to Murder a Millionaire
My mom recommended this mystery series to me, about a woman from an old Philadelphia family who takes a job at a newspaper, and her two sisters, all of whom are apparently cursed as their husbands always die. Anyway, in this first Blackbird sisters mystery, protagonist Nora is at a party when she finds the millionaire host--and owner of the newspaper she works for--murdered. There's the obligatory cute cop as well as a cute but slightly sketchy macho guy. Hm, why do cozy mysteries always have a cute macho guy to boss around and/or protect the protagonist? Anyway, this was entertaining enough and I may read the second and third in the series, since they're sitting next to me on the couch. B.
