This was a new author for me and the book started out interestingly enough. Sadly, though, it quickly showed its true self with “zany characters” (read: unrealistic, over-the-top, caricatures). A pity, since there was real promise in the writing and with the main character. The Blackbird sisters get involved in murder, mayhem, and mystery, with unbelievable subplots galore. The ending was a nice surprise, which saved this book from a Not Recommended score. Leave this one at the beach when you’re done reading it.
