I tried but I couldn't finish this book. I actually made it through more than 2/3 of the book but decided than I don't want to waste more time on it. After all this pages the book hasn't even been near to what it was described and I just got too bored. This is probably because it is the 13th book in a series, some might say it's a cozy mystery only, without much mystery up until where I stopped reading.
Unfortunately I don't have anything positive to say about it.
This entire series of Judge Deborah Knott by Margaret Maron is an absolutely joy to read.
The characters are well thought out and explained and continued throughout the series.
The locations and situations are wonderful too - even with the 'journalistic license' taken.
One feels you know the places, folks, taste the food, experience the wonderful place that is
North Carolina. I simply just loved it and could not wait to read on and on.
