If 1. Qa8+ Bb8 2. Qb7+ then 2...Qxb7.   White must play 1. Qb7+, when black's queen cannot capture white's queen.

I think you mean Kxb8,not Qxb7.My bad I thought you meant to take B on b8,then the K could take Qb8,going back I found my error.1.Qa8...Bb7, 2.Qb7+...Qxb7,no mate in 3.You are correct,once B move's,black Q cover's b7.You need to move black K to d8,so that is why 1.Qb7+...Kd8, 2.Qa8+...Bb8, Qxb8#,the N was covering d7 so no escape for black K.It really was an easy puzzle with all forced move's.Sorry for the confustion!Good day chess head's!
