Synopsis: Nora Blackbird has made the society pages yet again.  The impoverished Philadelphia heiress has agreed to wed Mick Abruzzo, son of New Jersey’s most notorious mobster.  Now Nora has to help him survive the Blackbird curse: Every time a Blackbird sister marries, the groom is bound to die.
 
But Nora’s superstitions are eclipsed by some ominous news.  Penny Devine, ex-Hollywood starlet and daughter of the Philadelphia Devines, has disappeared, and strangely, her family is very eager to have her declared dead.  When it’s revealed that Nora has inherited Penny’s extensive couture wardrobe, eyebrows rise even higher.  The only way for Nora to keep her name clear and save her sanity is to snoop among the snooty…until she sniffs out the truth.
