Nora Blackbird's closet

Collection by Nancy Martin


Nora Blackbird is the heroine of The Blackbird Sisters Mystery series by Nancy Martin. Nora lives on a rundown farm in Bucks County, but she covers the social scene in Philadelphia. What's a poor girl to do when she's invited to a black tie gala? She breaks into her grandmother's collection of vintage couture, of course. Check out the priceless wardrobe Nora wears while on duty as a society columnist. And you can start reading the books--beginning with How to Murder a Millionaire.
