Dead Girls Don't Wear Diamonds
Giving up my socialite life to get a real job writing a society column for a Philadelphia paper hasn’t worked out as well as I hoped. The developers still want to turn the Blackbird estate into an outlet mall. My eccentric sisters are convinced I need a dog, a baby…or a keeper. And now I’m falling hard for a Jersey tough guy with criminal connections. On top of my family feuding, one of the city’s nouveau riche has just been murdered, and I could be a prime suspect. What would Emily Post do?
When a high society jewel thief winds up drowned at the bottom of a pool with a tacky garden gnome tied to her ankles, Nora must swing into action to save her old flame, Flan Cooper, from a hasty murder charge. A politically ambitious millionaire with hushed up secrets, a dotty grand dame with a penchant for polo teams, and a cat fancier who keeps a gun with his silver tea set all steer suspicion onto Nora herself. It’s enough to make the bluebloods turn pale! Nora must find the killer on her own—or risk trading her grandmother’s couture for an orange jumpsuit. All in an ex-debutante’s day’s work, Nora. All in a day’s work.
