I enjoyed the setting, and especially how people kept getting lost in cavernous convention centers and the warehouses. The furniture manufacturing was interesting too, and I thought there was just enough of it. None of Knott's family makes it into this one, only an old friend but there are still a lot of relationships to keep track of. I was in the mood for a quick uncomplicated book and this one fit quite well; I didn't bother trying to guess the murderer and since I zipped right through it, if there were logic gaps or inconsistencies I didn't see them. Just a nice little mystery with a familiar character and an interesting (to me) setting.

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.
