      The book that I'm wishing for this week is

      Synopsis (from the author's website):

      Murder under the stars... 

      Nora Blackbird—pregnant at last!—is spending summer afternoons wallowing in the Bucks County pool of her best friend, Lexie Paine, who has just been released from prison. At night, Nora is covering Philadelphia’s high-society events for the local newspaper. And this time she doesn’t have to look far for a good story.

      Next door, a Broadway show is in rehearsal at the estate of Toodles Tuttle, the long-deceased but ever-legendary composer. Reigning over the estate is Toodles’s diva widow, Boom Boom. The demanding old broad still rules with an iron fist, and considering the chorus line of enemies she’s racked up over the years, her death has been a hotly anticipated event. So imagine everyone’s dismay when it’s her beloved daughter, Jenny, who drops dead—from a cause that is anything but natural—just as the lights are set to go on for the lucrative new Toodles musical.

      Yet murder is only an overture to the drama to come.... 

      Nora’s sister Libby, a soon-to-be-grandmother, has gotten herself into a sticky situation, wooed by both a lowly bug exterminator and a cheesecake-loving Broadway impresario. Edgy sister Emma has a dangerous new boyfriend who may jeopardize her show-jumping exploits. And the love of Nora’s life, Mick Abruzzo, has been desperate to prevent Nora from meeting the most notorious member of his mobbed-up family—his mother.

      Now Nora has to deal with the bump-and-grind of her personal life, and also bring the curtain down on a daring killer—before he forces her to exit stage left, permanently.

      I  learned just last week that a new book in the Blackbird Sisters Mystery series was about to be released.  I'm so excited!  I love this series!  A Little Night Murder is the tenth book in the Blackbird Sisters Mystery series - or eleventh, including the prequel, Mick Abruzzo's Story. The expected publication day is August 5, 2014

      This is a very entertaining series. With all the crazy goings-on of the three sisters, this could almost be a chick-lit series, with some mysteries cozily solved along the way. All of the books in the series are highly recommended - four or five kitty reads!
