My opinion of this author has not changed after reading this one. I think Maron has a very unique style of writing. I love the education a reader gets on a specific industry of North Carolina. In this one it was the furniture/decorating business. She takes an actual real life industry and weaves a mystery in it. Not only is a reader getting a fun mystery, but they are learning something about North Carolina. This is great, especially if you live in the state. The problem I have with her writing is, I find it difficult to follow her characters. I think Maron could add a few more pages to her books to give a recap of Deborah Knott and her character, as well as, more memorable information on the characters particular to the story. I find myself having to go back to figure out who is who and what part do they play in the story line quite a few times. The rating would go from a 3 to a 5 in no time.
A mystery written around furniture week in North Carolina.Judge Deborah Knott is in the middle of another murder mystery.These are very entertaining and what I call light mysteries.I am on her 6th book and plan to read them all.
