    1. Not one of my favorites of the series, but I will continue on with this series I do enjoy the escapades of The Blackbird Sisters This book was just not as funny as the previous books.

    5. So, I m hooked in this series and not because it s great really in a believable sense but cause I m entertained It s one of those where the mystery part, how its solve, on how she came up with it, is not quite believable, yet in the end I don t care as long as it s solved and I m interested by the drama that s going around The cops or detective s here, are close to nonexistent since they do nothing but pick the wrong person cause it s convenient, or with the previous books, the detective used a [...]

    6. I wanted to like the book because I love Martin as a writer and the series Unfortunately, the mystery plot felt empty at the end There was nothing to connect the Blackbirds with the society that d been built up around them Even knowing the back story, it was still lacking the heart I wanted on Orlando and the past, how the world worked, instead of the consistent show don t tell There was a lot missing in the winding history of the Blackbird society Not a recommended book Sad to say.

    8. 3.5 StarsI have loved the Blackbird sisters mysteries from book one, and they have only gotten better with time However, CROSS YOUR HEART AND HOPE TO DIE seemed to be lacking something in the mystery department It seemed as though the plot was pretty clear cut from the beginning and there wasn t much secret as to who dun it I must admit that I found my mind wandering a bit at parts which has never happened with any other of the Blackbird mysteries HOWEVERwhat this book was lacking in the mystery [...]

    16. This was a much better book then the first book in the series I found the writing easier to follow, not so many unusual and unnecessary characters Much tighter plot I found myself laughing several times and enjoyed the relationships between the characters Nora remains the sane Blackbird sister Emma and Libby remain the problem sisters They still don t have enough money Mick Abruzzio has developed into a very interesting character I will read a few in the series I believe this is the 4th book in [...]

    20. Still enjoying the series, mostly because I still like Nora and Michael Different story with Libby or even Emma, Nora s sex mad, obnoxious and irresponsible each in her own way sisters who always manage to look ravishing I much prefer the lesser characters like Reed, Rawlins, Orlando, Lexie And I do hope N and M won t end up like so many other fictional couples, hemming and hawing about whether they really belong together while basically looking like an old married couple for the rest of the wor [...]

    21. About halfway through, I almost skipped to the end This book was a bit much I usually like to escape reality through a book This book just felt like life rewritten through the eyes of a spoiled person who was used to living a life of luxury and now, after losing all of their money, had to be a real person like the rest of us Not one of my favorite books in the series at all In fact, it makes me want to say, sayonara to the rest of the seriesere s better stuff out there to read rather than wastin [...]

    24. A My real book reading time has been very limited so it took almost 3 months to get this read Thankfully, the story is easy to pick up and put down and not be lost Another crazy adventure for the Blackbird sisters although Emma wasn t involved as much It was fun to follow the eccentric Libby and see her son Rawlins character become developed Quite the shocker to have Kitty killed off and the diamond ring at the end has me racing for the next in the series.

    25. Nancy Martine writes with great humor and imagination I love this series because it makes me laugh out loud and enjoy the book from beginning to end and look forward to the next installment Nora Blackbird and her sisters are a different as night and day but they stick together to help each other out and solve the mystery at hand Sorry I didn t start this series sooner but I am enjoying it now.

    26. Nancy Martin s fourth mystery involving the Blackbird sisters.Brinker Holt s revolutionary Brinker Bra is being launched and Nora is sent to cover the party when her boss, Kitty, is unable to attend Returning home, Nora is shocked to find Kitty dead, with her boyfriend, Michael Abruzzo, the prime suspect.Another frothy romance mystery.

    27. I can t decide if I really like this series or not but starting on the fifth book of the series probably is the real problem Anyway while the who and the why were finally revealed it was never revealed why Libby couldn t get the damn bra off I am about to start the first book in the series so hopefully some of the general questions will be answered.

    28. This is my first read of a book from this series I really had to struggle to finish it not very many likeable characters I chose it for the Philadelphia location and that part was interesting The Main Line rich and their piccadillos turns out not to be my cup of tea Nora should marry the Italian American and dump the mansion she can t afford.
