Love the characters. Mac and Joe Riddley have a "mature" relationship that we over 50's can relate to.
Great book in this series
I pretty much figured out the murderer on this one, despite the red herrings. Still I enjoyed the characters, even if the story is not the best in the series.
I'd forgotten how much I enjoy this series. It's full of small southern town relationships and I like the female judge who is the main character.
Patricia does again. So does MacLaren and all the other characters.
Magistrate MacLaren Yarborough solves killing of local librarian, small town characters, nice family.
More Thoroughly Southern fun. Great series.

Once again Mac Yarbrough is in the thick of things, ready to investigate. All signs point to a man Mac believes innocent. Now she must figure out who's stacking the deck against him...
