The cover of this book was misleading... in a good way. The title and cover image give the impression that this is going to be another cozy mystery following in the vein of Janet Evanovich or some other ditzy, fashion-obsessed heroine. On the contrary, I found that the characters were more well-rounded and the story grew steadily with more complex details. The author is good with a phrase as well!

It takes place among the Philadelphia upper-crust and features a smart, thoughtful heroine. Her occasion raids in her grandmother's classic vintage wardrobe feel like a forced detail to make this book seem appealing to the average cozy mystery fan. I am hoping that as the series progresses, these details will recede and the book-loving, horse-riding, art-restoring aspects of the Blackbird sisters will come forward as they are far more unique aspects than yet another book with "fabulous clothes and fabulous parties".
