Maron has written another winner. The author wrties a good clean book. Lots of characters, since the protagonist comes from a huge southern family. (The author has page in the beginning that has the main character's family tree to help keep track of who's who.) While being entertained with a lot of local flavor and North Carolina regionalisms, you are kept guessing while turning the pages. A good quick read. Four stars.

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.

This is the first book by Margaret Maron I have read, and picked it up in an airport. It entertained me through a flight, as it should have. I'm not a big fan of murder mysteries, but this was kept me reading.

Judge Deborah Knott and fiancé Dwight Bryant are trying to prepare for their wedding and Christmas, while dealing with the murder of an assistant DA and her baby and also are looking into the case of a woman on death row whose time has just about run out.

In addition to a couple of excellent mysteries, this book spends a good deal of time with the familiar characters of the series, characters that have come to seem like old friends. I found it all very satisfying.

Deborah Knott and Dwight Bryant finally get married in this book. In previous books, DB seemed like a lump -- a genial, honest, good man, but not very interesting or exciting. Maron has really made him into something quite different in this book, and it works well.

However, I wonder where she can go with the DK-DB storyline after this? They're married, they're happy, the dramatic tension is resolved. They could go on solving mysteries, or perhaps Maron will choose to pursue another "family" of characters and settings. In any case, her books are always worth reading, and this one was no exception.
